Jumpin' Jack Flash (or J.J. for short) is one of the avatars of Mark Meadows.

History[edit | edit source]

Jumpin' Jack Flash, like most of Mark Meadows' "friends" has memories of a previous life. Jumpin' Jack Flash recalls a world full of costumed superheroes like himself before being "trapped" in Mark's subconscious. He doesn't think of himself as a wild card, and simply uses the term "ace" to describe himself because that's the term used in Mark's world. Jumpin' Jack Flash's real name is John Jacob Flash, and there is real person who shares that name. Jumpin' Jack Flash met the other John Jacob Flash backstage at Peregrine's talk show, he's a lawyer who possesses no ace powers, and, while he is much older, does resemble Mark's alter ego.

Wild Card Traits[edit | edit source]

On top of his ability to fly, Jumpin' Jack Flash also possesses pyrokinesis, the ability to telekinetically super-heat molecules and control the resulting plasma. He pretends that his power is simply control over fire, just for show.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Flash is a small, wiry man with a long thin nose and a sly, easy grin. He wears an orange body suit cut to the navel, and trimmed in red and yellow flame.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Flash is the embodiment of flame: elusive, daring, passionate and destructive. He has garnered a reputation as a popular ace, despite his infrequent appearances, and is something of a ladies man when he is around.
