She's coming back!
I agree completely
" ok! i just want to say - i've been a fan of jubilee since first seeing her in the 90's animated series. she became my favorite character (i know, it seems lame that a 30 year old man's favorite character would be jubilee, but that's what it is - i think i have a soft spot for misunderstood underdogs). a few years later (in the comics), she goes on to generation x and is written REALLY WELL and illustrated EVEN BETTER - Bachalo is my favorite Jubilee artist. THEN, genX went through their artist and writer changes and things started going downhill BADLY. after gen-x ended, jubilee only made a few random appearances before she was DEPOWERED! i wish i knew what made the artists decide which mutants got to keep their powers... i mean - do we NEED 3 wolverine analogues (x-23, daken)?? do we NEED another rock guy (onyx)? do we NEED another diamond character (bling!) do we NEED some mutants to have more than 1 power? NO! sure, jubilee can be compared to dazzler and/or boom-boom, but she really IS different. there is a significant difference between their powers and how they work.so, after being depowered, i had hopes for her as one of the new warriors. and mostly, i didn't have a big problem with the book. and i like how they changed her into a seemingly older person with a more layered personality. BUT, now if they take her backwards (like they KINDA did with her clothing on the cover of nation x #2), i am gonna be PISSED.jubilee has got to be one of THE MOST misused/misdrawn characters in comics history.think about it: she's chinese-american, yet is rarely actually drawn looking like that. she used to be a world class, olympian level gymnast. AND she fought with wolverine against the Hand - a bunch of killer ninjas! also, while yes, her "fireworks" can blind people - they can also cause major damage (remember in the phalanx covenant when emma helped synch use jubilee's powers to cause an ENORMOUS phalanx-spattering explosion). yet, besides her VERY early days or genX early days, can you think of time where jubilee was written to utilize her various skills (gymnastics, fighting ninjas, blowing S--- UP!) to max effect? No. she was frequently written as a dumb girl with an attitude who was afraid to use her powers and needed to be rescued or shut up. LAME.can you think of another character to get their own solo series where their powers are represented completely WRONG??? in that solo series, she only ever used her powers to blind people, but never for destruction - that is F'ED UP! i DID see her hand glowing on the cover of nation x #2... so i really really really really REALLY REALLY hope that she gets her powers back... but ONLY if they do them right.i'm excited! these stories look awesome! blink is back - that's awesome too! LONG LIVE CHRIS CLAREMONT'S JUBILEE!! "
The brain is Martha Johansson, not No-girl. No-Girl was a joke some of the students were playing on Xorn (Magento) during the New X-Men comic series. She was a heavy telepath who had her brain removed from her body by the U-Men.
I think it will be nice to see Jubilee back. I also wouldn't mind seeing a reunion with Sofia and the rest of the Young X-Men as I wonder what a lot of the former New Warriors are up to now.

"It was stated in Grant Morrisons last arc that Martha was No-Girl.
" I don't mind Jubilee coming back, but for the love of Pete! Lose that worn out 80's mall rat look. Rain coats are hardly in fashion when it's actually raining. I thought she was much cuter with her long hair.Maybe it's just for nostalgia but I hope she's depicted as being mature and that was the most dramatic character development I ever read of.
is'nt he a bit of both?
" @Gambler said:" Gambit needs a new style already. The only people who wear trenchcoats are flashers and emos. "So which is Gambit? Flasher or Emo? ;) "
" sneak peak from Nation X #2
she looks good, hope she carried her "new" personality with her
