Techincally, I'm not sure this qualifies as "early Kirby". A this stage of his career he would have been in the business some thirty years. Probably more a question of artists not being given any time or respect back then.

Fortunately, only a few years later things began to change and we got to see the King's real vision.

Id heard a rumour that Jubilee had been created through a random roll of the MSH RPG Ultimate Powers book. No idea if that's true, but funny idea nonetheless.

For me, Jubilee was usually just not very interesting, as opposed to actively annoying.

Also, Vampire Mom Jubilee was more entertaining that it had any right to be.
I liked Jubilee. But then I liked Dazzler and Jubilee is really close to a reboot of her. Whatever happened to Longshot? I always enjoyed Mojo and his storylines. Including X-Babies.

I think I'll always be okay with Jubilee. There was a Jim Lee illustrated issue where Psylocke and The Black Widow infiltrate a criminal party dressed as hot babes and Jubilee as the boy delivering the Chinese food. I think that her not being a busty supermodel mutant gets her a checkmark in my book. But I also like Dazzler because she's a pathetic failure and in a world full of people who are the best at what they do, I find that endearing.

Green Lantern #162 (1983)
Here's the set-up: Hal, some woman and a young boy are trapped on a space ship by the evil ship's computer. The kid unwittingly finds an escape route which, sadly, turns out to be an airlock. The evil computer expeditiously blows the kid out the airlock. Oh, and Hal's ring is out of power. We are then treated to this-

Just in case you weren't sure, that is, in fact, the boy decompressing explosively in the panel numbered "1". On the very next page, the mood is lightened when the computer hits Hal in the face with a pie.

This is from the Hellfire Club issues in the Dark Phoenix 'saga.' Great stuff!
I believe it was this panel and the following issue that launched Wolvie into superstardom. I remember getting that "oh, shit!" charge when I got to the last page. Ya just knew it was gonna be a whole new ballgame from then on.

So, of course they had to ruin it years later. sigh...
