Biography

Early Life

Jennifer-Lynn Hayden (also known as "Jade") is the daughter of Alan Scott, the first human Green Lantern, and Rose Canton, who was Alan's foe, Thorn. Despite Rose being a villain, she briefly married Alan and she gave birth to Jennifer and Todd. Rose fled upon their conception, as she feared she would harm them. The siblings were separated, and Jennifer was adopted by the Hayden family in the Milwaukee suburbs, and didn't know she had a twin brother until she was in her late teens.

Due to her father's exposure to magical energies, Jennifer and Todd were born with metahuman powers. However, Jennifer's powers only manifested when she had to defend herself from being sexually assaulted as a child. It was later revealed that she had some of her mother's plant powers, as she caused roses to attack a mugger. She also revealed that her skin contains chlorophyll that gives her skin its green hue, and she can photosynthesize sunlight like a plant.

Becoming a Hero

Eventually, Jade met Todd after surmising that they were Alan's children, and they attempted to join the Justice Society. The two were rejected, but joined with other children and proteges of JSA members to form Infinity, Inc. Jennifer later met and fell in love with the Green Lantern, Kyle Rayner, and the two began dating. Jade also lost her powers when she fought the Starheart, the source of powers, but they were restored when Kyle when was the god-like Ion. Rayner also decided to give her a power ring when she didn't have her powers, and she briefly served as Earth's Green Lantern.

While in a relationship with Kyle, Jade met Access, a powerful dimensional superhero who appeared in her apartment. The two briefly talked, and she would never know that Access was crossing over between the DC and Marvel Universe. When Rayner left Earth after the beating of his friend Terry Berg, Jade opted to come along with him. After several missions, Jade decided that she wanted to go back to Earth, and ended her relationship with Kyle once she became involved with another man. Later on, Jade became a member of the new Outsiders, and later became its leader.

At one point, Jade joined Donna Troy into space to stop a growing rift in space, and was helped by Rayner and Kilowog. In the Rann-Thanagar War, Jade died trying to stop Alexander Luthor, Jr. from tearing the universe into a multiverse. Her conscious lingered in her power until her Starheart powers merged with Kyle, which instigated his second metamorphosis into Ion.

Blackest Night

Jade was resurrected with a Black Lantern ring, and is inducted into the Black Lantern Corps to haunt anyone connected to her. She appeared on Oa to confront Kyle, claiming she was resurrected because of Kyle's love and tells him they can be together again. However, Kyle is aware that she is a Black Lantern and is not the true Jade, leading to the two to fight. After using Kyle's past failures against him, Soranik arrives and the two battle once again. Jade stops when the Black Lantern's rings are registered to devour Oa's Central Power Battery, but was stopped by Kyle. She was later resurrected and restored alongside with other former Black Lanterns by the Entity, and later gave Sorankik her blessing to date Kyle.

Trivia

  • She posed for a arty photo shoot in Bikini Magazine.
  • Unlike other Green Lanterns, Jade doesn't have to recharge her powers.
