Jolen is an Inhuman who gained his superhuman abilities by passing through the Terrigen Mist. He was selected alongside a number of other youth to be sent to earth on a sort of foreign exchange program. He adjusted quickly to the conditions of earth, but had trouble understanding the nature of his peers, often overreacting to them.[1]

After hearing from one of his friends that Nahrees, a former love-interest, has been captured by Mister Chase, he quickly drove to Chicago, where she was being held prisoner. Jolen confronted Mister Chase, a hired hitman, and was shot in the head. After a bit of scuffle, Jolen revived, and used a root to murder the hitman. From here, Jolen took a darker moral path, threatening and killing several other people.[2]

In response to a report of Terrigen crystals in New York City, Jolen was assembled with a team, and led an assault on the reported owner of the crystals. During the assault, the team was confronted by the Fantastic Four, and quickly defeated. The Fantastic Four turned the Inhuman team over to the Office of National Security (ONE), where they were detained.[3]

After being freed by Mala The Diviner and Dewoz, they retrieved the Terrigen crystals and captured the holder of the crystals, Dr. Cartwrite. Having accomplished their mission, they returned to their moon base.[4]

  • Botanopathy: Jolen is able to manipulate plants telepathically, using roots to form supports, manipulating trees, vines and all other manner of flora to do his bidding. His control over his powers are so great that he can resurrect himself from fatal wounds with plant-like healing. He can even transform into a plant himself. He is also able to use plants as a means of travel by shrinking, then traveling through the plant's root system.
