For the supervillain formerly known as Jackdaw, see Blackbird (Femizon).

Jackdaw is a fictional character featured in the Marvel Comics universe. He was created by Dez Skinn, Steve Parkhouse, Paul Neary and John Stokes, and first appeared in The Incredible Hulk Weekly #57 (April 1980).

A now-deceased hero, the sidekick of Captain Britain, Jackdaw was an Otherworld elf. Jackdaw had been mortally wounded earlier in his adventures, but was revived by Merlyn and given new powers and a new costume.

He was permanently slain later on Earth-238 by The Fury. Jackdaw was literally torn in half by one of the Fury's energy bolts and expired shortly thereafter in Captain Britain's arms. Jackdaw expressed a belief that Merlyn would resurrect him. Saturnyne had abandoned them (and her assistant Dimples, who loved her deeply) to escape.[2] Merlyn did not resurrect Jackdaw as it would have damaged his chances of rescuing Captain Britain, who was killed as well by the Fury after Dimples and Jackdaw, and resurrected by Merlyn back on Earth-616.[3]

Richard Janus was once a college student and a research scientist and contemporary of Reed Richards. He became obsessed with finding a new source of energy, and sought Richards' help to harness this Negative Energy, or Nega-Power. When Richards moved on to new experiments when their investigations bore little fruit, Janus continued his efforts, and eventually discovered his new Nega-Power. After exposure to this power, Janus was split into two separate beings; Janus and the Nega-Man. The belligerent Nega-Man overpowered Janus, and set out to become master of the world. He clashed with the Fantastic Four and developed a module capable of harnessing anti-matter energy, and attempted to cross into the Negative Zone to gain more power. Janus encountered the zone's ruler, Annihilus who easily defeated him in combat and forced him to lead him to Earth. Janus was instead seemingly killed when he was pulled into a matter/anti-matter interface.[7]

Years later, Janus was revealed to have survived the experience and to have faked his death in front of Reed Richards to continue his pursuits. Janus plotted to siphon the power of the Negative Zone, however he was apparently destroyed this time by an energy disruption.[8]

Jumbo Carnation

Jumbo Carnation is a fictional mutant in the Marvel Comics Universe. His first appearance was in New X-Men #134.

Jumbo was a famous mutant fashion designer who created fashions fit for and inspired by the various and inhuman forms of himself and other mutants. One night, Jumbo was jumped by a group of anti-mutant thugs. Despite his injuries, he dies from an overdose of the mutant-enhancing drug called Kick. He expires on a city sidewalk.

Although his role was minimal, Carnation would have a substantial impact in the pages of New X-Men. His death galvanized Quentin Quire, a troubled student at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, into progressively destructive behavior as he believed that Carnation had been murdered by racists. The investigation conducted by the X-Men themselves (an act covered by the news) would reveal the role the drug played. Quire's gang, also affected by the drug, would go on to attack the people he thought responsible for the murder. All this would culminate in Quire's kidnapping of Charles Xavier and inciting a riot on the school grounds. This riot led to the death of two innocent students: Sophie of the Stepford Cuckoos and Dummy of the Special Class.

Jumbo has multiple arms, and can change his skin into a teflon state.
