Why Jubilee Is The Most Baller "X-Men" Character

She's more than just your favorite mutant mallrat.

Jubilee gets a bad rap because "she can only shoot fireworks."

That's bullshit. First of all, fireworks are SUPER DANGEROUS.

Secondly, they aren't even fireworks, they're colorful energy plasmoids. And they're way deadly, yo.

Remember that time she blew up The Mandarin's house? Probably not, since it was like 23 years ago.


She can also cause precision bursts inside another person's head, causing a massive stroke and killing them instantly. Um, ouch.


In fact, she has the potential to detonate matter at a SUB-ATOMIC LEVEL. YOU GUYS. That's like a nuclear bomb.

But that's all beside the point, because Jubilee's main super power is ATTITUDE.

Despite the fact that she's a homeless orphan, she still manages to find joy in life's little pleasures.

She's totes BFFs 4evz with Wolverine, which is the coolest friendship in comics, basically.

Even though she got turned into a vampire by the son of Dracula, she's not letting it get her down.

Plus, Jubilee is a straight up fashion icon. Who else can make a yellow trench coat work with pink visor shades? No one, that's who.

She's a fashion icon to moms, even. She's toting around a mutant baby these days, and still works that yellow trench and those pink shades in 2013.


Somehow she even made jorts stylish, which is important because jorts are necessary for doing the splits successfully.

She made short hair cool before Miley Cyrus was even born.

She's a smart cookie, breaking out of prison with... is that a toenail clipping?

Who else has lost their parents, been homeless, been turned into a vampire, and still manages to maintain unflappable optimism while killing it as a single mom? Nobody but Jubilation Lee.
