Jumbo Carnation was a mutant fashion guru and flamboyant young entrepreneur formerly based out of Mutant Town in New York City,[citation needed] now associated with the Hellfire Trading Corporation.[1] He gained notoriety in and out of the mutant community, and appeared on some television talk shows. He designed clothing geared specially towards mutants, such as shirts with more than two sleeves, tentacle stockings, and wing gloves, all often sold at X-Factory stores.[2]


One night after leaving a club, Jumbo Carnation was attacked on the street by a group of humans. Jumbo began choking, and was left for dead by his human attackers.[2]

After investigating, Beast discovered that in actuality, Jumbo died from an overdose of the drug, Kick.[3]


After Carnation's death, Quentin Quire began to question Xavier's dream of peaceful coexistence between humans and mutants. Quire did not know the true cause of Jumbo's death, so to challenge Xavier's dream, Quire began using Kick and organized militant group of like minded students called the Omega Gang.[4] Under the influence of Quire and Kick, the Omega Gang murdered humans, fought the X-Men and incited a riot at the Xavier Institute during which fellow student, Dummy, died.[5] To stop Quire, Sophie Cuckoo used Kick to boost her telepathic powers so she could operated Cerebra. With the help of her sisters, Sophie stopped Quire and quiets the panicking mobs; however, she died either from mental strain or a Kick overdose.[3]


Jumbo Carnation was mentioned by Kate Pryde, as well as in an internal U.S. Navy communiqué, as being alive, indicating that he had been resurrected on Krakoa.[1] He was later confirmed alive on Krakoa, being the one responsible for designing Callisto's White Knight uniform for her role in the Hellfire Trading Company.[6]
