You guys heard me absolutely right! Jubilation Lee AKA Jubilee is the next mutant to show up in the 2016 X-Men movie, [X-Men: Apocalypse](movie:1194267). For those of you that are just getting into the X-Men, Jubilee made her debut in the X-Men back in the 80's and was one of the main characters in the original 90's X-Men animated series. Below is an image of her costume from the 90's:

As you can see, her costume in those days was a simple combination of short blue jeans, pink top, pink glasses (to protect her eyes from her own powers), a yellow trench coat, and yellow gloves.

Now, for those who have seen the previous X-Men films, such as X-Men, X2: X-Men United, and X-Men: The Last Stand, you may have seen her but in more of a cameo format than actually being part of the film. Though, of course, according to the X-Men Movies Wiki, Jubilee was one of the mutants captured by Stryker in X2: X-Men United. And it was also stated that she was to appear in [X-Men: Days Of Future Past](movie:203942) played by Jamie Chung, or at least would have been, but, unfortunately, she didn't make the final cut.

But now we get to see her for real this time. Not just mere cameo appearances. This time, as an actual main character. According to, Bryan Singer has already confirmed that first-time actress Lana Condor will play Jubilation.

Now, all we need is what role Ben Hardy will play and we're just about ready for En Sabah Nur's coming. What do you think? Do you think she'll make a good addition to the team? Or did Jamie Chung deserve that spotlight in X-Men Days of Future Past? You decide.

X-Men Apocalypse is set to release May 27, 2016. Mark your calendars! And please don't forget to comment!
