Janice Lincoln is a supporting antagonist in the 2019 Marvel film Spider-Man: Far From Home. She was a former Stark Industries employee who is aligned with Mysterio.
She was portrayed by Claire Rushbrook.
Janice once worked for Tony Stark, but later developed a certain hatred towards him for his arrogant nature and left Stark Industries. She was even angered to hear that Tony's heroic image as Iron Man has become more popular to the world as Tony actually sacrificed himself to destroy Thanos and the Black Order in order to save the universe.
As such, Janice and several other ex-Stark Industries employees (including William Ginter Riva, Victoria Snow, Guterman and Doug) joined Mysterio, who has formulated a plot in staging terrorist attacks through holograms of the Elementals around the world so he can present himself as a hero to the public by 'foiling' these attacks in order to surpass Iron Man as the greatest superhero of all time. To that end, Janice created a suit for Mysterio, working on it for one year before unleashing it in 2024 to allow Beck carrying out his plan. Janice also learned that Tony gave one of his intelligence systems called E.D.I.T.H. to Spider-Man that can be used to facilitate Mysterio's plans further. She then informed this to Mysterio, who tricked Spider-Man into giving him E.D.I.T.H..
Mysterio then celebrates with his crew, praising Janice for creating his suit and learning about E.D.I.T.H. However, Mysterio is angered to learn that Spider-Man's friend MJ has gotten hold of a drone which may blow their cover, and decided to kill her and the other classmates in London.
As part of the plan, Guterman posed himself as a double-decker bus driver, luring MJ and the other students to be at the mercy of the Elemental Fusion while Janice is busy making final preparations for Mysterio's suit. However, Spider-Man was able to foil the plot and defeat Mysterio, allowing MJ and the others to escape unharmed, much to Janice's dismay.
With Mysterio dead, it can be implied that Janice escaped away with the rest of Mysterio's crew and doctored footage to expose Spider-Man's identity and frame him for the attacks and Mysterio's death before selling it to J. Jonah Jameson, who broadcasts this to the world, much to Spider-Man's complete distraught.
It is unknown what has happened to Janice afterwards.
- In the comics, Janice Lincoln is the identity of the sixth incarnation of the supervillain Beetle, and also the daughter of Tombstone.
