I need a bit of a hand with a decision, guys.
So, in the Earth 616 timeline/universe/whatever, Jubilee is a depowered mutant who has been turned into a vampire. Now, I like the idea of her having some of the vampiric powers, just to make her a bit less....squishy as mutants go. However, I don't want her to be a full-on vampire without her original powers.
So, do you guys think it would be better to remove the vampiric idea altgether and make her just straight Jubilee pre-vampire and loss of powers, make her a vampire...or, do a sort of dhampir with mutant powers.
In the last scenario, I'm thinking that she would be about half as strong as a vampire, half as fast, with a greatly extended lifespan (but not immortal by any means) and suffer a reduced form of a vampires weaknesses. So, rather than being killed by sunlight, she loses her vampiric powers when in direct sunlight. Religious symbols don't affect her ('cause, honestly, that implies she's somehow demonic or something), but her heightened senses can be overwhelmed by sensory over-load (ala garlic). And, of course, she can still be killed by a stake to the heart. Oh, and she can drink blood, and derives energy and power from doing so, but she doesn't have to to survive and she can digest normal food as well.
I figure if I go with the final option, I can retain her original powers and keep her from being over-powered, since Jubilee was always a little less impressive than a lot of the other main mutants. This would give her more ability to hold her own in a fight, too.
What do you guys think?
