The Jinx wiki last edited by Yokergeist on 10/01/13 05:00PM View full history

Origin

There were only four other acolytes in the East Indian temple where Jinx trained, and after she had learned the secrets of sorcery, she was the only one left, having used her dark powers to kill them and her teacher. Jinx was eventually captured and sent to the US, where prisons were capable of holding a metahuman such as herself.

Creation

Jinx was created by Marv Wolfman and Chuck Patton

Character Evolution

Villainy Inc.

Later, Jinx joined Villainy Inc. - a group of female villains formed by the Altantean Queen Clea who stole the Trident of Poseidon and tore a dimensional hole into Skartaris. There, Villainy Inc. defeated Travis Morgan and his Sorceress daughter Jennifer Morgan. The group was able to take over the ancient city of Shamballah, until Wonder Woman arrived and destroyed Villainy Inc. member Trinity, a living computer virus who had downloaded herself into the master computer controlling all of Skartaris, using the Trident of Poseidon.

New Fearsome Five

Lady of Earth, lover of the mystical dark!

Later, Jinx was recruited by Dr. Sivana into a newly formed Fearsome five, consisting of herself, Psimon, Gizmo, Mammoth, and a newly-restored Shimmer.

Powers & Abilities

Sorceress

Mystical Powers

Jinx is an elemental sorceress who draws her magic from the natural solid ground. This is why she must have contact with the ground at all times, or her magic becomes weakened or lost altogether. Some of her elemental abilities include but are not limited to: generating powerful force bolts, conjuring wind bursts, summoning emerald flames, creating earth tremors, and even dissolving solid matter, converting it into mystical energy beams. Other abilities may exist but none are certain.

She also made regular apperances in the Teen Titans Go! comics starting in issue #1. In issue #26, hints are given of her later "turning over a new leaf" (as seen in the episode Lightspeed).

Issue 27 showed that she still had a crush for Cyborg (as seen in the episode Deception) where she was seen putting a love letter under the Titans Tower door, and stalking him while on his date. She also appeared in issue #34 as Kid Flash's girlfriend and became jealous when he began inadvertently flirting with Raven, Argent, and several other females. She also gets captured with the other heroines by Blackfire and was rescued by the Titans in issue #36. In issue #39, she is seen on a date with Kid Flash, but Larry arrives (who is playing cupid) and strikes the other women with cupids arrows. She becomes jealous and attempts to keep them from falling in love with her boyfriend. She also appeared in issue #40 as part of the H.I.V.E F.I.V.E.

Jinx first appeared in the Teen Titans episode Final Exam. Here she is a H.I.V.E Academy student along with Mammoth and Gizmo. After the H.I.V.E Academy was destroyed Jinx and her friends formed the H.I.V.E F.I.V.E, a reference to the Fearsome Five. In Lightspeed she tried to join the Brotherhood of Evil by capturing Kid Flash.
