The Religious Affiliation of Comic Book Character
of Generation X and the X-Men
(later known as "Wondra" of the New Warriors)
Jubilation Lee, who is best known as "Jubilee," is a mutant who became a member of the X-Men during the time the team was temporarily re-located to Australia. Jubilee stayed with the team and became something of a sidekick to her teammate Wolverine on many of his solo adventures. When a new "junior" class was formed at Massachusetts Academy with Emma Frost and Sean Cassidy ("Banshee") as teachers, Jubilee was sent to be part of that group, known as Generation X.
Jubilee was de-powered during the "House of M" crossover storyline in 2006. She was last seen living in an abandoned Christian church.
Jubilee is a Christian, although she is rarely overtly religious and this is not a major aspect of her character. We do not know if she is Catholic, Protestant, or belongs to some other branch of Christianity. Both Catholicism and Protestantism are major common affiliations for Chinese Americans, but in Jubilee's native Southern California there are also Chinese-American congregations for Latter-day Saints, Jehovah's Witnesses, and other groups.

I don't recall Jubilee's religious affiliation ever being stated; she's ethnically Chinese, and could be Christian, atheist, or Buddhist. Would depend on how long her family's been in America, I suppose.
