|~ Jack from Jupiter, activating his invulnerability.|
Jack from Jupiter is a member of The Seven and supporting antagonist in the 2006 controversial adult comic-book series The Boys and a minor character in The Boys Presents: Diabolical. He's concerned for the return of The Boys even though everything was settled after Lamplighter's departure.
In The Boys Presents: Diabolical he was voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson who also voiced the Joker in The Batman, Black Samurai in Scooby-Doo! and the Samurai Sword, Ian the Gator in The Princess and the Frog, Goro in Mortal Kombat, Sarevok Anchev in Dungeons & Dragons: Baldur's Gate, Captain Gantu in Lilo & Stitch, Trigon in Teen Titans Go!, Shredder in the 2012 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series, Carlton Duquesne in Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman, Prince John in House of Mouse, Crunch Bandicoot in Crash Bandicoot, Temutai in Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Floronic Man in Batman and Harley Quinn, Skulker in Danny Phantom, Gorilla Grodd and Captain Cold in Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League, Jabba the Hutt in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and Floronic Man in Batman and Harley Quinn.
He does not appear in the Amazon series adaption officially.
Part of The Seven, the premier superhero team of the Boys setting, Jack is like his peers: essentially a celebrity with superpowers rather than a conventional superhero. To the shallow and obnoxious Jack, this arrangement couldn't be better as he has only ever sought a life of decadent hedonism.
Despite his status as a long-time member of the world's most successful super team, his lack of the star appeal of some of his colleagues, as well as their violent excesses or major powers, means he is seen as fairly unimportant to his corporate sponsors (even more so than The Deep), and the Boys, a CIA-backed team charged with keeping superpowered individuals in line. His teammates likewise see him as unimportant, as they are as self-absorbed as he is. Even the newer recruit A-train, who Jack took under his wing to some extent, has little attachment to him, and showed little sympathy when Jack met with misfortune.
Although Jack is one of the more innocuous members of the Seven, he shouldn't be regarded as a decent individual, as he is aware of the violent crimes and fatal accidents they cause but shows no concern about them, even playing them down and treating these incidents like jokes. He is later killed by Billy for supposedly killing his dog, and is unable to activate his invulnerability due to being choked.
Jack From Jupiter doesn't appear in the series but in Season 2 Episode 7, an actor portraying him in a porn parody of The Seven is seen which is being watched by Lamplighter before Hughie changes the channel in disgust.
Powers and Abilities
- Flight: Jack From Jupiter is capable of flight.
- Invulnerability: By saying the word "Carpo", he is granted an exceptional level of superhuman invulnerability. He doesn't remain in his invulnerable form permanently so as to shoot up. Saying the word, i.e transitioning from non-invulnerable to invulnerable is painful.
- Heat Vision: He has no formal training in the use of his powers, or in handling dangerous situations. Along with the rest of his team, these inadequacies led to disaster when they attempted to stop a terrorist hijacking of a plane.
- Jack From Jupiter is based on Martian Manhunter from DC Comics.
- Although he doesn't officially appear in the Amazon Prime adaptation, he is referenced and appears to have been replaced by the character Translucent.
