    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Jebidiah Guthrie is a member of the Guthrie family which is home to many mutants of different powers and abilities. Dispite being younger than Sam ( Cannonball), Husk, Jay ( Icarus), and Elizabeth, Jeb's powers blossomed during a time when mutants were no longer a minority.

    He manifested his powers in their small hometown and his family tried to keep it secret. He however was proud of his powers and in a fight with one of the Cabots, he used his powers to electrocute the would be bully. This started the final confrontation between the families where Elder Cabot and his daughter, Julia were killed. Despite being a mutant he was not sent to Xavier's to be trained in the use of his powers and instead remained at his family ranch.

    It is unknown if Jeb retained his powers after M-Day.
