Jacqueline "Jackie" Shorr was a deranged woman who claimed to be Rick Jones's mother. She worked in one of several orphanages where Rick lived in childhood. She was fired because of problems caused by her mental instability, missing for a while. She eventually contacted Rick, claiming to be his real mother and that his parents, Albert and Elizabeth Jones, were adoptees. She reached out to Rick's friend Betty Banner. Later she kidnapped Rick after meeting him. It was revealed that she had kidnapped several other men over the years, which she claimed were her sons. She kept them prisoner in her basement, where they likely starved to death. She killed Rick's girlfriend Marlo Chandler when she and Betty came to rescue Rick[1] but Marlo was later resurrected by the Leader.[2]

Jackie had been placed in a 'mental home' in Arizona and due to a paperwork confusion she was able to escape and soon after met and killed Marlo's friend Lorraine after Lorraine had been resurrected from the dead.[3] Lorraine with Moondragon's help later threw Jackie out of a window several stories from the ground after Jackie came to Los Angeles to try and kill Marlo.[4] Jackie was said to be severely injured but Moondragon cushioned the fall so she didn't die.[5]


  • Moondragon could not tell if Jackie was lying about being Rick Jones' mother by reading her mind. Jackie is deranged and truly believes Rick is her son.
