Ugh - torn between being disgusted and heartbroken.

As her breast size increases, her vocabulary decreases... Hmm...

I've never quite figured out how Jubilee, who is supposed to be younger than looks about ten years older than Kitty. And Franklin continues to be five or so.

Aging is just so weird in comics.

Another subset of mutation, like a telepath turning to diamond. Mutants as a species undergo subtle (and not so subtle) changes within their own lifetimes in response to the collective expectations and perceptions of humans. Mutants are more likely to survive to the next generation if they are really super hot and sexy.

Nobody's going to make the "more like 'Jubblies'" joke. "Yeah, baby?"

So. Disappointed.

Up until she lost her powers in House of M. I was a huge fan of Jubilee and her treatment since then what with losing her powers and artists drawing as just another pin-up wannabe has really lowered my view of Marvel these past few years and this just reminded me about it all over again :*(
