Overview

  The daughter of the Golden age Green Lantern and the Thorn, Jennie inherited her father's manipulation of green energy in a natural form. As such, she joined the Infinity Inc. young heroes group and served with them and on her own for many years, also keeping up a career as a model and movie executive. Recently, she was stripped of her power, but discovered an innate control over plant-life probably inherited from her mother. She shares a psychic bond with her twin, Obsidian, and it was this that alerted the JSA to the threat he posed to them. She moved New York, sharing an apartment with Kyle Rayner, the present Green Lantern, with whom she worked regularly, as he restored her original powers during his time as Ion. During the events known as Infinite Crisis, Jade joined a coalition of heroes, who were travelling to the center of the universe. She was killed by Alexander Luthor Jr., but managed to give Rayner her remaining power. This energy transformed him into Ion once again.

History

  Jennie-Lynn is the daughter of Alan Scott, the Golden Age Green Lantern, and Rose Forrest, the Golden Age Thorn, and during their short-lived marriage Rose got pregnant with twins, a fact that she kept from her husband. After giving birth to Jennie-Lynn and her twin brother Todd, Rose abandoned her children at the hospital fearing that her evil Thorn personality would kill them. While Todd was adopted right away, Jennie-Lynn was sent to the Fielding Home for Girls. It was during her time at the orphanage that her powers first manifested. The orphanage janitor had been molesting the girls and one Christmas evening he picked Jennie-Lynn as his next victim. Suddenly the green birthmark on her palm began to glow and she shot out a mystical green energy pulse. A few months later she was adopted by the Hayden's and she soon repressed the memory of both the janitor and her strange power.
