Can Jubes be cured of Vampirism?

#1 Posted by MrFantastic (248 posts) - - Show Bio

Jubilee is a vampire.  She had to die to become a vampire, but once dead the "vampire disease" brought her back to undead, unlife.  Currently she is using Wolverine's blood to make her less susceptible to the weaknesses of vampirism, such as exposure to light.  Logan was a vampire, but only because they "turned off" his healing factor. Once the turned his healing factor back on, he ceased to be a vampire.  Since he healing factor can bring him back from the dead and heal disease, one might hypothesis that he ceased being dead and then purged his body of the disease.  Can a big enough dose of Logan's blood bring her back?

I'd like to hope so. But then again, I also hope that one day she will be repowered and recognized as one of the world's most potentially powerful mutants!

I really wish they would retcon the whole House of M and M-Day.  I miss having her with her powers

If a big enough dose could then surely they would have tried that already? I'm not sure tbh.

I actually like Jubilee as a vampire and hope they keep this character concept for a while. I also preferred her original powers (who knows if they can bring her abilities back even as a vamp) but I am finding her pretty interesting as a vampire so far in her mini.

In a world where death is a joke most of time, how half death can be serious ? 
 
YOU CAN BET SHE WILL BE CURED !!!

If we ignore the story she may be cured. second worst xmen story arc ever. Austen is still number one

@MrFantastic: Yes, I like to think of her being cured of vampirism, and I'm waiting for it.

Yes, just ask one of the Skyfathers or cosmic beings...

I'm hoping she isn't cured of vampirism... cause otherwise she'll just go back to being a plain ol boring powerless human.. and will fade out of any storylines again as she has no purpose anywhere.

Dani Moonstar says hello : ]

Well at least Dani Moonstar has gotten re-powered with her Valkyrie powers from time to time, even if it was only temporary each time. And she uses a wide array of weaponry.

Yes all she needs is to take a bite out of  Mortigan Goth a.k.a Immortalis.

This talk about curing Jubilee of vampirism, isn't there a mutant capable of changing cells at will to whaterver he wants but has some how been missing since Second Comming.
Of course I am referring to Elixir, but he is no where to be seen. I mean we know he can regrow limbs but Karma and Hellion have still not been treated so why would Jubilee.

As far as I know.. isn't Elixir still in a coma and is still black in color?? And right now he can only cause destruction, and no healing touch?

If Jubilee is going to be a vampire they might as well just kill her off.I love her as Jubilee and loved as Wondra but this Vampire stuff is corny.

Her latest mini series that just finished and her appearance in X-23 have been great, and I found her character is starting to build up again, mainly her semi-coping with her current situation. At least it seems shes sane again and knows to control herself and realize it'd be wrong to drain someone of their blood.
 
I kinda like where her story is going right now, so no.. please don't kill her off just because shes a vampire now, that'd just suck hardcore.
 
EDIT: Maybe I'm just desensitized to vampire characters because I watched too much True Blood and Vampire Diaries.. lol..

I hope a cure can be found. Im BEYOND OVER this whole vampire phase.  
I loved the old spunky energy-plasmoid slinging JUBILEE but id prefer human (WONDRA) Jubilee over this mess.

Can't we have both? Can't she still remain a vampire but get her old mutant powers back in the process? Think about it: Vampire chick that shoots fireworks. I'd pay for a comic book about that.

scarlet  witch 
Mean she return in Avengers The Children's Crusade, she can  bring back former-mutant powers.

I wouldn't mind a blade/retro mashup Jubilee.

I think they don't know what to do with her, and this was one way to bring her into the fold w/o worrying about repowering the scarlet witch.  Oopsie. 
 
Can she be cured?  Sure.  Will she?  I suspect we'll have another vampire arc soon enough, and she will be. 
 
Then again there are like 75 X-men on utopia, so they're in no rush. 
 
Heck, Vampire Jubilee might be a good add-on to either the X-23 book or Uncanny X-Force.

Jubilee's appearance in X-23 #12 was awesome.. 
 
At this point, I really don't care if she gets repowered by Scarlet Witch or remains a Vampire. Shes good either way. I do like her fangs and red eyes, in combination with her costume, just looks slick badass.. ^_^

I believe there is a very intelligent superhero who could cure it. or a sorceress at least. But marvel writers won't do it, maybe for now. I want Jubilee and her cool powers back. I hope she'll become more powerful cos she's been hinted an omega level mutant.

i wonder how Storm cured herself.

Ideally she would have been cured in the fallout of AvX. The Phoenix resparked the mutant population, and is a force for rebirth and ressurection. It would have been so simple for the Vampirism to be "burnt out of her" and suddenly she can shoot sparkles again.

Vampire Jubes is better than Depowered Jubes, because Vampire Jubes actually gets used in a book. But Fireworks Jubes is way better than Vampire Jubes, because with the Vampire powers has come a whole lot of awful writers who seem to want to turn her into an angsty, emo character. Not all of them have been terrible, but losing the spunky attitude upset me far more than losing the sparkles.

Throwing this one out there.

Beast's modified Arkea strain was able to cure Shogo of a toxic poison running through his system and restore him to full health. Similarly, it saved the lives of Feral and, oh, I forget who the other victim of The Future was. Anyways, it has been established now that this modified Arkea strain is capable of some amazing restorative powers.

Why not give it a shot on Jubes? Perhaps it can cure her of her vampire-ness, and restore her fireworks, all in one whack. It's the result of three full story arcs in X-Men vol. 4, where Jubilee is considered a main character; why wouldn't they try it for her as well after it's proven to work?
