Jubilee (born Jubilation Lee) is a mutant with the ability to project pyrotechnic energy plasmoids. They are often mistaken for fireworks.
Jubilee was in one of Xavier's classes when Wolverine first found his way through the mansion to meet Xavier. Later, she and the fellow students Shadowcat, Pyro, Iceman and Mirage met a new girl named Rogue while taking one of Storm's lessons.
Jubilee was one of the students kidnapped by William Stryker but was rescued by the X-Men. A power dampening drug was used on the students to ensure that they couldn't use their powers to try to escape Stryker's base. Later, she attends one of Xavier's classes and compassionately asks if everything is alright.
In 2006, Jubilee attended another one of Xavier's classes and was also later present at his funeral.
Prior to X-Men: Apocalypse
Professor X. had Jubilee take part in a video with the purpose of attracting new students to Xavier's School for the Gifted.
Upon their arrival, Jubilee is quick to welcome and make friends with Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Nightcrawler (taking the latter on a tour of the school) upon their arrival at the institute, despite other students being afraid of their powers or attitudes. When Cyclops steals one of Xavier's cars to play hooky, Jubilee, Jean, and Nightcrawler tag along to spend the day at the mall together. The four teens stop by the record store, get frozen yogurt, and see the film "Return of the Jedi". Afterwards, she and Scott have a debate about what the best Star Wars movie is, with Jubilee preferring "Empire Strikes Back" and Scott preferring the original. Jean, however, says that Return is definitely the worst. When the four friends get back to the mansion, they are in shock to see that the Xavier Institute had been destroyed. Not too long after, William Stryker arrives with his men and knocks all of the mutants out with a sonic device. After Apocalypse is defeated, Magneto and Jean Grey repair the X-Mansion, with Jubilee present to witness the event.

- A deleted scene in X-Men (film) shows Jubilee answering a question in one of Storm's class lectures. She then has a brief conversation with Rogue and Shadowcat in regards to Wolverine's mutation.
- In a deleted scene in X2: X-Men United, it is shown that Jubilee walks off while in the Museum Gallery. It is the first time her powers are presented - the ability to project pyrotechnic energy plasmoids. Another sequence that was cut from the movie shows Jubilee and the other captured students being teleported to safety by Nightcrawler. Jubilee is disgusted when Artie Maddicks vomits from the motion sickness caused by teleporting.
- In the novel for X2: X-Men United as written by Chris Clairmont, Jubilee blasts one of the HYDRA soldiers through a wall in the mansion as he tries to kidnap her. She is immediately tranquilized by several other operatives, leading to her capture.
- Jubilee was originally going to appear as a future member of the X-Men in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but her character was cut out from the final script. She would have fought alongside her fellow mutants to fend off the sentinel army. The concept art was based off actress Jamie Chung's likeness.
- Jubilee technically does appear in X-Men: Days of Future Past. When old Xavier meets with young Xavier, he shows his younger self a vision of students that he will possibly have in the future. Jubilee's scene from the end of X2: X-Men United is re-used in this moment. Kea Wong's version of the character can be seen for roughly two seconds walking into Xavier's classroom in the vision. She is wearing her green jacket, blue jeans, ponytail, and hoop earrings from that movie. This would technically mean that Jubilee, in Xavier's future, survives the events of Days of Future Past. It also would mark her fourth appearance in the X-Men movies (albeit a flashback/memory sequence,) and would make six movie appearances, counting X-Men: Apocalypse and Generation X.
- A viral marketing video for X-Men: Apocalypse shows Jubilee as the star of a Xavier Institute infomercial to welcome and attract new students to the School for Gifted Youngsters.
