Jade's mother Rose was briefly married to Alan Scott, but fled upon conceiving their children, fearing she would harm them. She gave them up for adoption and they were separated. Jennie-Lynn was adopted by a couple in the Milwaukee suburbs. Jennie did not learn she had a twin brother until she was in her late teens. Shortly after she and Todd met, surmising they were the children of Alan Scott, they attempted to join the Justice Society. They were rejected, but joined with other children and protégés of JSA members to form Infinity, Inc..

Due to her father's exposure to magical energies, she and her brother were born with metahuman powers, although Jade's only manifested themselves when she was defending herself from being sexually assaulted as a child. Jade's powers greatly resemble those of the Green Lantern Corps: she is able to generate green energy and shape it into constructs according to her will. She once lost those powers when she fought the Starheart, the source of her powers, but they were restored by Kyle Rayner during his first, short tenure as the god-like Ion. She later discovered that she had her mother's plant manipulation powers, when she caused roses to attack a mugger. While on a date with Kyle on an alien world, she told him that her skin actually contains chlorophyll (the source of its green hue), and she can photosynthesize sunlight like a plant. While she was without her powers, Kyle gave her a power ring and she briefly served as Earth's Green Lantern.

While she was in a relationship with Kyle Rayner, Jade met Access, a powerful dimensional hopping superhero. He simply appeared in the middle of her apartment, talked with her for a bit and left. Access has the power to cross over between the DC comics universe and the Marvel universe and had done so in many limited series specials. Access' appearance was notable in that it happened in a mainstream, monthly series.

Her internalized powers function much like those of her father, as she can create hard-light objects out of green energy emitted from the star-mark on her palm, and fly. She shares his weakness to wood and cellulose, but has no need to periodically recharge her powers.

When Kyle Rayner left Earth after the violent beating of his friend Terry Berg, Jade opted to come along with him; however, after several missions, Jade decided that she wanted to go back to Earth. Once back she became involved with another man and ended her relationship with Kyle (in that order). She recently served as a member and eventual leader of the new Outsiders. In Infinite Crisis, Donna Troy led a group of Earth's heroes, including Jade, into space, where they dealt with a growing rift in space. The Green Lantern Corps, represented by Kyle Rayner and Kilowog, also responded to this threat.

In the Rann-Thanagar War Infinite Crisis Special, Jen dies trying to stop Alexander Luthor, Jr. from tearing the universe into a Multiverse. Her consciousness lingers in her power, at least until her inherited Starheart powers merged with Kyle. This transfer instigates Kyle's second metamorphosis into Ion.


New Jade

In 52 #11, Donna Troy is presented with evidence from one of the Monitors that she, not Jade, was supposed to die trying to stop Luthor. In 52 #29, a young woman named Nicki Jones is introduced as a member of the new Lex Luthor-owned Infinity, Inc. under the name "Jade". A vegetarian graphic arts student from the San Francisco Art Institute, Jones possesses the ability to project glowing vines from her fingertips, the ability to fly and green energy powers. She debuted at a Thanksgiving parade only to be attacked by Obsidian, who accused her of trying to steal his sister's legacy.

Recently, in 52 #40, the members of Infinity Inc., with the exception of Nicki, Natasha Irons, and the recently deceased Jacob Colby (Skyman), battled Steel and the Teen Titans and were then arrested. She then appeared during #50 and World War III, alongside the remains of Infinity Inc. However, the team is too scared to face Black Adam and run off.

One Year Later

One year after the Infinite Crisis, while Alan Scott was in a comatose state during an attack by the Gentleman Ghost, Jade appeared to him. She told her father goodbye and granted him another portion of her green energy, replacing his missing eye (which he had lost due to complications while returning from space after the Crisis was over) with a green glowing orb that, due to its mystical origins and connection to Jade, allows him to track astral and mystical energy forms such as ghosts.

Blackest Night

Jade as a Black Lantern, menacing her former love.
A Black Lantern Ring goes to Jade's grave to resurrect her and induct her into the Black Lantern Corps. Jade appears on Oa to confront her former lover Kyle Rayner. She claims to have been resurrected because of Kyle's love and tells him they can be together again, however Kyle is aware that she a Black Lantern and not the true Jade. He attacks her in rage nearly destroying Jade's body. She replies that if Kyle "won't return her love then maybe he will fear her instead". She captures him in a black construct, then proceeds to attack him with black contrusts of Kyle's former girlfriends Alex DeWitt, Donna Troy, and herself, along with Kyle's mother Moira Rayner reminding him of his past failures. Jade and Kyle's battle is interrupted by the arrival of Soranik Natu. Jade and Soranik fight (physically and verbally), with Jade making several rude comments. Eventually, Soranik just punches Jade in the mouth and activates her ring.[1] At that moment, the Black Lantern's rings registered that their power levels had reached one hundred percent. As such, the Black Lanterns were given a new directive: to devour Oa's Central Power Battery. Completely disregarding her opponents, Jade flew off to her objective, with Soranik's hand still in her mouth. However, Kyle was able to separate them. To save the Central Battery for his fellow Lanterns, Kyle bravely sacrificed himself to stop the undead army.[2] Fortunately, despite of being critically injured, Kyle is resuscitated by Soranik and Star Sapphires member Miri Riam.[3]

Powers and Abilities


Starheart Empowerment: controls the mystical power of the Starheart, an ancient artifact created by the Guardians of the Universe. Jade had extensive energy manipulation powers able to effect the entire spectrum including gravity, radiation, heat, light. Creating Solid objects allows her to make simple weapons, entrapment devices, common geometric shapes, gigantic hands and simple containers. This power was limited by the strength of her will.

  • Flight
  • Phasing: through solid matter (described as the ability to “move through the 4th dimension”)
  • Hypnotize
  • Blinding Light
  • Energy Blasts
  • Heat Beams: able to melt down metal.
  • Stun Beams
  • Invisibility
  • Danger Detection: Sense and reveal dangerous objects by causing them to glow
  • Energy Constructs: and create solid objects such as giant hands, walls.
  • Electromagnetic Scanning: Jade was able to detect most normal electromagnetic phenomena within an amazing range, including radio, television, infrared and ultraviolet.
  • Force-Fields
  • Energy Sheath: She seemed to have a relatively permanent personal force-field that protected her from bullets and the like (described as an "invulnerability to metal"). This life sustaining aura protected her from harm. She could generate a field of life sustaining atmosphere and protection from harmful radiation even if she was unconscious.
  • Starheart Sight: allowed her to track astral and mystical energy forms such as ghosts.
  • Telepathy: Occasionally able to read minds or playback events.

Telepathic Link: She had a minor telepathic link with her brother Obsidian

Chlorokinesis (formerly): ability to control plants with the power of the mind.


  • Photography: Jade was an amateur photographer.


Wood Flaw: The energy is ineffective against wood. Items made of wood cannot be lifted or broken by energy from the ring nor can barriers of emerald energy stop projectiles crafted from wood. By extension, things made of plant-matter could potentially disrupt her power and were not affected by the ring's power as much as other substances were (so if she fired a blast at, say, a giant mutant Venus fly trap, the blast wouldn't be quite as effective if she'd fired the exact same beam at a human being or a brick wall). Apparently, this vulnerability to wood was because the green flame was an incarnation of “green, growing things” and thus could not be turned against them.
