History: Jubilation "Jubilee" Lee was born and raised in Beverly
Hills as the daughter of two prosperous Chinese immigrants, Dr. and Mrs.
Lee. She attended an exclusive Beverly Hills school where she became an
extremely talented gymnast. One weekend her parents lost their money in the
stock market. That same weekend two hit men mistook Dr. and Mrs. Lee for
their neighbors, also named the Lees, and killed
Orphaned and impoverished, with nowhere to live, Jubilee was sent to the Los
Angeles County Juvenile Hall. There she learned how to defend herself and
became rebellious towards authority. The Juvenile Hall authorities arranged
to send her to another orphanage. Fearing that she might eventually be sent
to live with her only living relatives, who were in Communist China, Jubilee
ran away to the Hollywood Mall.
At first she survived as a petty thief, stealing whatever she needed. But
one day, trapped by mall security police in a dead end, in her fear and
panic she unwittingly activated her superhuman powers for the first time.
Globules of energy, which she would later call fireworks, shot from her
hands, exploding in front of the police, enabling her to make her escape.
From then on Jubilee led a lonely life, her outwardly cynical attitude
hiding her deeper fear that she could not trust anyone. She earned a living
by creating fireworks displays for the mall customers with her newly
Then one day, mall security, having failed to capture her yet again,
contacted the novice mutant hunters known as the M Squad. Luckily, several
female members of the X-Men, Dazzler, Psylocke,
Rogue, and Storm, happened to be shopping at the
Hollywood Mall that day. They foiled the M Squad's attempt to capture
Jubilee. Fascinated by these women, Jubilee followed them until they exited
via a teleportation portal provided by the mutant aborigine Gateway back to
the small town in the Australian outback, where the X-Men were then based.
Before the portal closed, however, Jubilee jumped in (Uncanny X-Men
She emerged in front of Gateway moments after the female X-Men had
left the scene. Gateway verbally welcomed Jubilee, although he had
never spoken to any of the X-Men, led her to a tunnel, and pushed her
down into it. She landed in the vast underground cavern that stored
the bounty of the Reavers, the criminal cyborgs who had previously
been the town's sole residents.
Jubilee created a living space for herself within the cavern.
Although part of her wanted to connect with the X-Men, she did not
trust anyone yet, mutant or otherwise. So she kept her presence a
secret, watching the X-Men from her hiding place. She became a
scrounger, taking food and clothing from the X-Men while they were
She finally emerged from hiding after most of the X-Men had
abandoned their Australian base and the returning Reavers had
captured and crucified the X-Man Wolverine. After
Wolverine succeeded in freeing himself, she helped him escape to
Over the following months Jubilee accompanied Wolverine in his
travels through Asia. He became like a second father to her.
Jubilee finally met Professor Charles Xavier, the founder of the
X-Men, when they were both captured by the alien Warskrulls. Subsequently,
when the X-Men reunited under Xavier's
leadership, she became a full member of the team. She continued to
accompany Wolverine frequently on his solo missions.
After the X-Men defeated the techno-organic Phalanx race, Xavier
decided to found a new school where the various teenage mutants whom
the Phalanx had captured would be trained in the uses of their
superhuman powers. Pennance, Husk, M, Skin, and Synch
became members of a new mutant team, Generation X. Xavier assigned
Jubilee to join this new team as well, since she was in their age
group. She was not happy, seeing her reassignment as a demotion.
Jubilee quickly became the team player in Generation X
that she had been with the X-Men. Despite her characteristically
cynical remarks, Jubilee came to love and trust the members of her
new team as if they were her new family.
When the school started to suffer from financial trouble, Emma Frost brought
in her sister Adrienne to help run things. Adrienne had hired Paladin
to retrieve a sword that had killed her husband from a man named Noy in
Mandipoor. Paladin showed up having been defeated by the Rising Sons,
super-mercinaries working for Noy. Jubilee and several other members of
Generation X joined Paladin in returning to Mandipoor and retrieving the
sword (Generation X #52-54).
While a member of Generation X
Jubilee developed an attraction for another Generation X member, Synch and a
rivalry with M II. This didn't bode well when Synch
and M II started to date (Generation X #67).
Note: The character of Jubilee appeared in the 1992 X-Men animated television series. Her voice is played by Alyson Court, who also recorded the voice for Jubilee in several video games.
Powers: Jubilee is a mutant with the superhuman ability to generate
what she calls her fireworks, energy globules that vary in degrees of power
and intensity. The globules obey her mental control, traveling where she
directs them, arranging themselves in balls, streamers, and other shapes,
and exploding when she wishes. These combinations may result in anything
from a multitude of colorful sparkles capable of temporarily blinding a
person to a fairly powerful detonation, capable of smashing tree
trunks or metal objects. She can absorb these fireworks back into
her own body without harm to herself.
