    Default What were your thoughts on Jubilee as a vampire?



    Jubilee, as we know, was one of the mutants depowered after M-Day, but continued as a superhero even without her initial power set. First, she was part of the New Warriors called Wondra and used a super suit based on technology from the Wizard. Then, she became a vampire in the 2010 story Curse of the Mutants. This was a status quo that lasted a good eight years, until she was finally cured of her vampirism by Quire and regained her mutant powers at last.

    Honestly, I think the idea is cooler than the execution. Jubilee as a vampire is something that could be a fun reinvention without straight-up giving her the old powers back, but in reality the reason they even did this was to help her appeal to the Twilight crowd. When Twilight faded out of popularity, her vampire set felt a bit dated, given that it was based on said fad. That, and she felt really out of place when she was with the other X-Men characters, her vampiric powers next to the other mutants made her stick out like a sore thumb. When she got her original powers back, it was for the best.

    But I thought I'd ask you guys about it now that it's been a while. What did you guys think of vampire Jubilee?

    Donny Cates approves.
    He is the rock that their island nation is built upon. The people of Krakoa know him and what he has done for them over the years, and they look up to him. He might not be RULING Krakoa, but he is definitely leading it.

    She was cuter with fangs and that's all that really matters.

    A fun story idea that overstayed its welcome.

    I never had a problem with Jubilee as a vampire, probably because when I started reading X-men comics she was already a vampire.

    Same here. She was a badass as a vampire. I wish she could have retained those abilities in addition to her mutant powers.

    It was pointless, just like Decimation.

    She has powers. Really destructive powers that really are never tapped into. She's been an X-Man for 30 years, now. It's way past time to let it show that she can stand her own ground against the best of them.

    Didn't follow the main X-Men comics where she was, but I did like the story in the X-23 series where vampire Jubilee had a few guest spots. Can't say I think it needed to stay (or needed to go, for that matter), but I think it was capable of generating good story fodder with the right creative team.

    Fun fact the writer wanted them to be a couple
