    As probably the only Jubilation Lee fan in the Major Spoilers community, I’m glad to see her relevant again. However, I’m worried.

    I feel that this will go the same rout as the whole Speedball/Penance angle: A character that was jovial being remade “dark and edgy”. I’m also feeling that she might end up on the X-Force. I really hope I’m wrong.

      Seems pretty likely at this point… Dark Veeennngeannnnce!!!

      I’m a fan of Jubilee, probably because I grew up watching the 90’s X-Men cartoon, so I’ve always seen her as a part of the main team. I think her powerset was ridiculous, but whatever. Also, since being depowered, she hasn’t really been all that jovial. Her time with the (New) New Warriors (newerest?) had her pretty broody, so being a vampire might be a good thing. I guess I’m kinda hoping that when everything is all resolved, Jubilation is left with some new powers and can start being a player again.

    X-Men: Eclipse? I have to admit that the “Twilight” overkill has pretty much ruined any interest I have in vampires in the Marvel U. That’s pretty bad considering I used to follow the old “Tomb of Dracula” mags with the characters that ended up in the “Blade” movies (Blade, Hannibal King, Lilith, etc.) and Moribus back in the day.

    I really wouldn’t mind if Jubilee ended up on X-Force, I just don’t want it to be with her as a vampire. I’d much rather her have gotten her powers back, and not be afraid to use them like she was before. Unless the writers retcon it somewhat, Jubilee at one point was said to be one of the most powerful mutants that Emma had ever encountered.

      I only remember Jubes as being able to shoot off fireworks, what makes her so powerful? I must have missed a decade of X-history.
