First Appearance: (Adventures into) Fear#11 (December 1972)

Powers/Abilities: Jennifer Kale is a highly skilled sorceress whose knowledge and power to continue to grow as her studies continue. Like most sorcerers on Earth, her power is derived from three major sources: personal powers of the soul/body/mind derived from developing one's own psychic resources (such as thought-casting), powers gained by tapping the universe's ambient magical energy and employing it for specific effects, and powers derived from tapping extradimensional energy by invoking entities or objects of mystical power.

    Jennifer can cast a wide variety of spells, most of which have not yet been depicted, and is a formidable opponent in mystic battle. Her initial training was in the kind of sorcery mastered and taught by Zhered-Na, though she has since learned from other sorcerers, as well as becoming extensively self-taught. She can project magical bolts, form shields, open portals, affect the memories of others, mesmerize others, etc.

    She currently holds the Tome of Zhered-Na, one of the most powerful books of magic on Earth.



Height: 5'6"
Weight: 122 bs.
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blond

(Adventures into Fear#11 (fb) - BTS) -  Jennifer stole a mystic text which she thought was the Tome of Zhered-Na from her grandfather, Joshua, who was head of the Cult of Zhered-Na, intending to attempt a spell for the fun of it.

(Adventures into Fear#11 ) -  Jennifer, alongside her brother Andy, used the book, unwittingly summoning Thog and another demon to Earth, though they were driven off and destroyed, respectively, by the Man-Thing, as well as the burning of the Tome by Andy.

(Adventures into Fear#13) -  As Joshua and the other Cultists discovered the real Tome was missing, Jennifer and Andy tried to convince their friend Jaxon of what had happened to them. Jaxon didn't believe them and wandered into the swamp to play his guitar in solitude, but was then possessed by another demon from Sominus. Jennifer described having burned the book, but Joshua revealed that it was not the Tome she had stolen, but some other book. Jennifer, Joshua, and Andy then drove into the swamplands to try to save their friend Jaxon. When they approached Jaxon, he cast an illusion that seemingly transported they and the Man-Thing to Sominus where they were confronted by Thog. Joshua recognized the whole thing as an illusion, but they were unable to dispel it from their minds until the Man-Thing recognized it as an illusion, too. As they returned to the swamp, the demon was exorcised from Jaxon.
    Jennifer somehow gained a psychic link with the Man-Thing.

(Adventures into Fear#14) -  As the world began to be driven mad by the opening or a portal to Sominus, Joshua gathered the Cultists and brought them deep into the Man-Thing's swamp to perform a ritual to recover the Tome. Kale called upon the Mists of Maalock, which transported both Jennifer Kale and the Man-Thing to the dimension of Sandt. There they encountered Dakimh, who pretended to want to have them killed, and had the Man-Thing fight in a mock gladiatorial combat. However, he was actually testing their spirit to make sure they were the beings he was seeking. Though they failed to recover the Tome, they passed Dakimh's test, earning his trust and support.





(Adventures into Fear#15) -  Joshua, Jennifer, and Andrew witnessed as the Man-Thing ran amok in Citrusville before being seemingly destroyed by some locals with shotguns and a pick-up truck. Joshua gathered the Cult and detailed the full origins of Zhered-Na, her teachings, and her Cult. However, while Dakimh took Jennifer Kale and the Man-Thing on an extradimensional voyage, the demons of Sominus abducted Joshua and the Cultists and brought them to their realm. As Jennifer approached the Tome, Yopp, an elf demon from Sominus appeared and transported Jennifer, the Tome, and the Man-Thing (but not Dakimh) to Sominus. There Joshua guided her to touch the Tome, restoring them all (and the Tome) to Citrusville. The Guardian of Sominus was transported there as well, but out of its realm, it was easy prey for the Man-Thing.
    However, the Tome then vanished once again, apparently no longer needed with the invasion over. The Cult apparently dissolved as well, and Jennifer's connection to the Man-Thing was seemingly severed.

(Adventures into Fear#16) - Jennifer, Andy, and Joshua were present at a rally to save the swamp from the Schist Construction Company. Joshua expressed concern over Jennifer, who just hadn't been the same since her link to the Man-Thing had been broken.

(Adventures into Fear#17) - Jennifer began having nightmares as her mind began accessing the Land between Night and Day. This was an effect of her nascent psychic powers, combined with the dimensional upheavals caused by Thog and the Congress of Realities.

(Adventures into Fear#18) - Jennifer was plagued by a waking dream, which caused her to drop to the ground, screaming.

(Adventures into Fear#19) - Jennifer had another nightmare. Later that night, Korrek the Barbarian appeared in their house and, disoriented by his interdimensional travel, smashed his way into Jennifer's room. Joshua and Andy were drawn by the commotion, and thei appearance drove off Korrek, who assumed them both to be wizards due to their strange garb (pajamas). The Kales were then confronted by Dakimh the Enchanter who told them of the threat to reality due to Thog. Joshua agreed to allow Jennifer to leave Earth's dimension to study under Dakimh.
    Dakimh teleported them to his Castle in the Sky in the Land between Night and Day where he began to explain about the threat to all reality. However, they were then ambushed by members of the Congress loyal to Thog, and Jennifer was taken prisoner

(Man-Thing I#1) - Thog, as the Overmaster, commanded the Congress to kill Jennifer, but she was transported to safety by Dakimh, and she joined he, Howard the Duck, Korrek, and the Man-Thing in their efforts to save reality. They arrived in Therea, the Man-Thing destroyed Thog, and the remaining members of the Congress fled.

(Giant-Size Man-Thing#3) - Jennifer summoned Korrek and the Man-Thing to the Land between Night and Day where they joined Dakimh in opposing the efforts of Klonus and Mortak who were seeking to conquer Korrek's homeland, Katharta. Klonous mortally wounded Dakimh and then prepared to assault Jennifer, but she began to laugh when the Man-Thing came up behind Klonus and smashed him into unconsciousness. After Korrek overpowered Mortak, Jennifer formed mystic cocoons about the pair and cast them into space.

(Man-Thing I#22 (fb)) - Jennifer, Joshua, and Andy Kale, as well as Korrek buried Dakimh at the edge of the Man-Thing's swamp, marking the grave with the sign of Zhered-Na.

(Howard the Duck I#22) - Dakimh's ghost summoned the Man-Thing and Howard the Duck to the Land between Night and Day, where they joined Jennifer and Korrek in opposing Bzzk'joh. However, after they learned of Bzzk'joh's origins via the Waters of Eternity, Bzzk'joh himself accessed the Waters, traveling through and abducting Jennifer.

(Howard the Duck I#23) - Bzzk'joh brought Jennifer to his Death Store, where she was bound and strapped to an altar, after which he began tickling her. However, her allies found her before he could do anything worse, and Howard crushed Bzzk'joh's spirit and freed Jennifer. They escaped aboard the Epoch Weasel as the Death Store blew up.

(Howard the Duck I#24) - Jennifer returned Howard and the Man-Thing to Earth, thanking them for their help and telling Howard that he was a born sorcerer and that he should consider it further. She and Korrek departed in the Epoch Weasel.

(Thor I#271) - Howard and presumably Jennifer Kale visited the Baxter Building.

(Marvel Team-Up I#68 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer and Dakimh's spirit were captured by D'Spayre, who bound them to his tower, leeching their hope and life (yes, I know Dakimh was already dead, but I guess he could have been leeching his ectoplasmic energy or something). His ultimate plan was to twist them into evil forms that would serve his will.

(Marvel Team-Up I#68) - The Man-Thing led Spider-Man to D'Spayre's tower. Just like every time D'Spayre fights anyone, Spidey managed to overcome his despair and defeat the demon, freeing Jennifer and Dakimh, who destroyed the tower before teleporting away.

(Dr. Strange II#41 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer, Joshua, and Andrew were captured and imprisoned by Baron (Karl) Mordo.

(Dr. Strange II#41) - Mordo sought to sacrifice Joshua, Andrew, and ten others to a chaos demon, intending to have that demon summon its brethren to destroy Earth. Jennifer managed to reach the Man-Thing--who had had Ted Sallis' intellect restored, driven mad, and been ensorcelled by Mordo--before being consumed by the demon. However, the Man-Thing drove off the demon, and Dr. Strange restored the demon's victims to life.

(Man-Thing II#10) - Back in the Kale house, Jennifer cast a spell in an effort to  locate the missing John Daltry for Barbra Bannister. Instead, she was struck down by a mystic bolt from above. She shared her failure with her grandfather, and she tried to contact Dr. Strange for help, but learned from Wong that he was unavailable. Shortly thereafter, they were assaulted by Barnaby Stone and his biker gang. The gang was defeated by the efforts of Andy, John Kowalksi, and the Man-Thing.

(Man-Thing II#11 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer was one of the many sorcerers (including  Clea, Dakimh, Dr. Strange, Joshua Kale, Margali and Jimaine Szardos, ...and Chris Claremont) abducted and imprisoned by John Daltry via the Magus Sword for the demon Thog.

(Man-Thing II#11) - When the Man-Thing destroyed Thog, Jennifer and the others were freed, and they returned to Earth.

(Steve Gerber's unpublished script for Howard the Duck#1 "Secret Crisis II" (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer Kale was transported -- along with Andy the Angel, Dakimh the Enchanter, Korrek, Man-Thing, Master C'haaj, Hemlock Shoals, Claude Starkowski -- to within a motorhome (specifically a Winnebago)-like construct in an interdimensional space between Reality-616 and Reality-791021 (mirroring the storyline generated by the dark matter-powered Poporb of Krylorian techno-artist Chirreep).

(Steve Gerber's unpublished script for Howard the Duck#1 "Secret Crisis II") - After Andy the Angel inadvertently flattened Howard while rapidly opening the door and was then attacked by Howard in response, Dakimh urged Howard to desist, assuring him of Andy's innocence. Dakimh's voice caused Howard to notice the others in the recreational vehicle (RV). After Hemlock Shoals pointed out the arrival another vehicle/conveyance in the interdimensional space, and Claude noted it to be a fire hydrant, Dakimh explained that it, like their "RV," this was an artificial construct, crafted to resemble a common object. Pressing his fingertips to his temples, Dakimh mystically probed the "fire hydrant," sensing its inhabitants to be Dr. Angst and the Band of the Bland (Black Hole Sitting Bullseye, Spanker, Tillie the Hun), le Beaver, Black Talon, Bzzk J'oh, Dr. Bong, Jackpot, Jokester, Greedy Killerwatt, Kong-Lomerate, Maller, Pro-Rata, Puffin, Quizling, and Wally Sidney. Dakimh noted that, apart from their evil, they seemed to have little in common...except that they all wanted Howard dead.

    As Howard attempted to depart and met up with Chirreep, the monstrous mouth Galactongue appeared and disgorged an entire galaxy. As the contents formed a planet with an immense office building, Jennifer voiced what was happening to Dakimh and noted that they were falling straight torward it. Dakimh replied with concern the objects streaking toward them:
The Brotherhood of Evil Prepositions (Amonger, Arounder, Betweener, Of, Underneather, Withiner) then appeared and challenged both groups to "Play both ends against the middle, and all you desire shall be yours."

    Both groups were transported to the office building on the planet formed from contents disgorged by Galactongue; Jennifer asked where her group was, and Howard noted it to be the mailroom: The Haven of Lost Souls.

    After Howard refused to participate and then departed, Jennifer questioned his sanity, noting that Howard did not seem to realize they had not seen each other in six years (see comments).

(Steve Gerber's unpublished script for Howard the Duck#1 "Secret Crisis II" - BTS) - Kong Lomerate led the villains in a plot to destroy the other group.

    Bong, presumably along with some of the others, targeted Andy the Angel, Dakimh the Enchanter, Jennifer Kale, Korrek the Barbarian, Man-Thing, Master C'haaj (sp?), Hemlock Shoals, and Claude Starkowski, while Kong led Maller, Jackpot, and Greedy Killerwatt to attack Howard and Chireep, who had followed Howard..

(Marvel Comics Presents I#29/4 (fb) - BTS) - Quagmire of Earth-S began to access Earth-616 via the body of the Man-Thing. This caused the Man-Thing great pain; Jennifer Kale attempted to aid him, but became stuck in some quicksand.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#29/4) -  Quasar freed Jennifer, but when Quagmire burst forth from the Man-Thing, he immediately tried to put the squeeze on her. Quasar defeated Quagmire and took him away to have him imprisoned, though he did ask Jennifer if he could call her some time; she replied, "Any time!"



(Legion of the Night#1 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer moved to Malibu, California and began taking classes at Seaview College, where she found a boyfriend in Bernard Drabble.

(Legion of the Night#2 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer initially took an M.B.A. track, but eventually switched to a dual major in painting and interpretive dance.

(Legion of the Night#1) - Jennifer felt great psychic pain from the plot of Aan Taanu, as well as the death of Charles Blackwater. She spent the night with Bernard, telling him it would likely be their last night together for a long time. She then apparently communed with Dakimh and learned what she had to do.

(Legion of the Night#2) - Flying to New York, Jennifer had a vision of speaking with the Man-Thing, after which her plane suffered turbulence when the Aan Taanu-possessed Fin Fang Foom flew by. Jennifer arrived in Manhattan and met up with another of others with occult connections and abilities, forming the Legion of the Night and stopping Aan Taanu's plot to father a race via a human woman to take over the world. Afterwards, they agreed to stay together to oppose a number of other threats.



(Quasar#50) - Jennifer was amongst the mystics of Earth who sensed the imminent cosmic battle in the Man-Thing's swamp as Ereshkigal gained the Star Brand power from Kayla Ballantine. Jennifer traveled to the swamp where she began putting together the pieces of the Man-Thing, whom Ereshkigal had blown apart. Her efforts were assisted by Quasar, Kayla Ballantine, and the Squadron Supreme's Whizzer. When a nexus shaft opened through the Man-Thing's chest, Jennifer was able to keep it open enough for Quasar to break open whatever was clogging up the nexus.
    Quasar managed to foil Ereshkigal's plot, during which time Jennifer's vigil was joined by the Aquarian, Dr. Strange, Human Torch, Modred the Mystic, Moondragon, Shaman, Shock Troop, other members of the Squadron Supreme (Dr. Spectrum, Hyperion, Moonglow (Arcanna), Power Princess, Skylark), Talisman, the Thing, Adam Warlock.

(Over the Edge#2 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer took a sabbatical from her mystic studies to have a normal life in Berkeley, California (presumably attending University of California-Berkeley).

(Over the Edge#2) - Jennifer and her friend Denise discovered a possible romance with a guy Chris when she received a mystic warning from Dr. Strange. Reacting just in time, she fired a mystic bolt that subdued a skateboarder intent on stabbing her with a silver dagger, part of a series of assaults on sorcerers by the villain Silver Dagger.

(Ghost Rider III#77) - Now living in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Jennifer continued her studies of the mystic arts. Her ritual of peace was interrupted by Dr. Strange, who sought her aid in treating Dan Ketch, who was suffering from a mystic affliction. Achieving an instant dislike for the bitter and cynical John Blaze, Jennifer agreed to help Strange if he would promise to help her on a future project she had been working on for about a year. She communed with Ketch's Ghost Rider, helping to restore his memory, starting with the name Noble Kale. However, her probing unleashed a mystic backlash.

(Ghost Rider III#78) - Learning that Ketch's spirit was being assaulted by the Furies, Jennifer sent her astral form into the Void to help him. She succeeded in purging the Furies from the Void, but not before one of them skewered her astral form, causing her physical form to suffer similar injury. Jennifer correctly reasoned that the Furies were after Ghost Rider due to the murder of a woman, while Strange then abandoned them, telling them that it was a problem only their bloodline could correct. After looking up the proper memory spell, Jennifer sent the astral forms of herself, Blaze, and Ghost Rider into the past to observe the origins of Noble Kale and the Ghost Rider. Jennifer revealed that the Furies wanted to kill not just Ghost Rider, but also all traces of him and his family from Earth, including herself, Ketch, and Blaze.

(Ghost Rider III#79) - Jennifer accompanied Blaze and Ketch, using a memory spell to erase the knowledge that Dan was the Ghost Rider from Dan's adoptive mother, Francis, and his on-and-off girlfriend, Stacy Dolan. Jennifer then detected the Furies possessing human hosts and had Dan and Blaze prepare for battle.

(Ghost Rider III#80) - Jennifer, Blaze, and the Ketch Ghost Rider battled the Furies. The Valkyrie was drawn to fight and helped oppose the Furies. Ultimately Jennifer used her and Blaze's ancestral link to call up the spirit of Magdalena, who released the Furies from her request for vengeance against Noble Kale.

(Ghost Rider III#81) - Jennifer and Blaze confronted Black Rose, wondering how to deal with her, but Blackheart arrived and snatched her away. Blaze asked for Jennifer's help in finding his missing kids; she refused initially, tired of the trouble she had encountered since meeting him, but eventually she took pity on him and agreed to help. They returned to her apartment to find Howard the Duck, who had been waiting for her for his appointment for three hours.
    Wong arrived and delivered a mystic text, which Jennifer used to try to return Howard to Duckworld, but instead opened a portal to Dinosaur World, transporting Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy into her apartment.

(Ghost Rider III#82) - Jennifer, Blaze, and Howard struggled with the disoriented and enraged Devil Dinosaur, resulting in Devil's tail smashing a brick wall on top of Jennifer and Blaze. The rampage across the city attracted the Ghost Rider, who subdued Devil Dinosaur. Jennifer was taken to a hospital before she could send Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy back.

(Ghost Rider III#83) - Returning to her apartment, the battle weary Jennifer threw Blaze out, telling him they would start looking for his kids tomorrow.

(Cyblade/Ghost Rider) - While doing a sťance in her apartment, Jen was approached by Eternity, who had become aware of Mephisto's dealings in the Top Cow Universe.  Eternity gave her a fraction of his power and sent her in search of the Ghost Rider.  She found Dan Ketch on the subway, triggered his transformation, and then sent him to the Top Cow dimension.  With Eternity's power spent, she sat down in the subway car and wished GR luck.

(Ghost Rider III#86 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer and Blaze made ten failed attempts to locate his kids.

(Ghost Rider III#86) - Jennifer used a lock of Blaze's hair and some human bones to try to locate Blaze's kids and/or the Wendigo (with which they had last been seen).

(Ghost Rider III#88) - Jennifer accompanied Blaze on a trip northward to try to Canada on the trail of the Wendigo.

(Ghost Rider III#89) - Jennifer and Blaze got lost in Canada.

(Unpublished Script to Ghost Rider III#94 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer and Blaze parted on bad terms, each going their separate ways, with Blaze vowing to find his kids without the help of some "trainee wannabe witch like Jennifer-Thinks-She's-All-That-Kale."

(X-Force#85 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer relocated to San Francisco, California.

(X-Force#85) - Jennifer was sought out by members of X-Force (Bedlam, Cannonball, Moonstar) for aid against Pandemonia, who had taken mystic control of several of their other members. Based on their description of her, Jennifer identified her via her Demonic Corcordance text. Jennifer joined X-Force in confronting Pandemonia. She freed Pandemonia's mental slaves (Locus, Meltdown, Proudstar, Skids, Sunspot) and, assisted by Moonstar, she banished Pandemonia back to her home dimension on the chaos plane.

(X-Force#87) - Jennifer examined the reality warping energies that Dani Moonstar had recently begun to display, confirming that they were not supernatural in origin.

(X-Force#96) - Jennifer and Dani Moonstar attended a tai chi course.

(X-Force#100) - Jennifer summoned the Man-Thing and assisted X-Force against the Queen of Star Swords, the extradimensional counterpart of Moonstar.

(Witches#1 - BTs) - Jennifer, like most magic users, was wracked with agony when Andy Kale unwittingly unleashed the Hellphyr.

(Witches#1) - Attending classes again, Jennifer was contacted by Dr. Strange, who explained the threat of the Hellphyr. She agreed to help him only if the Tome of Zhered-Na remained in her possession when the threat was over. She traveled to Dr. Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum in New York, calling Andy to let him know she was coming up. Wong introduced her to Topaz, and neither of them were too happy to learn that the third witch being recruited by Strange was Satana.

(Witches#2) - Strange revealed the nature of the Tome, detailing that only a Kale, assisted by an agent of each Heaven and Hell, could defeat the Hellphyr and use the Tome. After Strange left, Jennifer and Satana took an instant dislike to each other. Wong conducted a training exercise for the trio, and Satana accidentally struck Jennifer with a mystic bolt. Lilith birthed a new lilin (her demon spawn) and sent it to attack the Witches.

(Witches#3) - Jennifer destroyed the lilin, though in the process Satana leapt into the path of one of her mystic bolts, knocking her unconscious. When Satana revived, she and Jennifer got into a fight and Jennifer stormed out. She went to visit Andy, who had transformed completely into the Hellphyr and who was joined by Satan, who had orchestrated his transformation.

(Witches#4) - Jennifer was joined by Satana and Topaz and opposing the Hellphyr. Ultimately she was forced to destroy it, killing Andy as well. Afterwards, the three Witches stood together against Dr. Strange, preventing him from taking the Tome from Jennifer.

(Civil War: Battle Damage Report) - Tony Stark listed Jennifer's status as undetermined.

(Marvel Zombies 3#1 (fb) - BTS) - Jennifer registered with the SHRA and became a member of the Initiative's Florida-based team the Command.

(Marvel Zombies 3#1) - During a mission in the Florida swamp near the Nexus of Realities her team was attacked by zombies. Conquistador was ripped apart and Siege bitten. The zombie Deadpool from Earth-2149 rendered her useless by injuring her arm with throwing-blades. Jennifer destroyed zombie Deadpool with the propeller of ain airboat. Aquarian, who had been bitten by Deadpool, went into hibernation. Siege returned as a zombie and followed Jennifer into a small hut. His human parts exploded in front of her.
  A traumatized Jennifer Kale was later picked up and put into quarantine by ARMOR.

(Marvel Zombies 3#3) - Still in quarantine, Jennifer cried while cowering behind her bed when ARMOR was overrun by zombies.

(Marvel Zombies 3#4 - BTS) - Morbius considered Jennifer as a member of his new Midnight Sons.

(New Avengers#53) - The Eye of Agamotto appeared to Jennifer Kale as it considered her a possible replacement for Dr. Strange as Sorcerer Supreme.

Comments: Created by Steve Gerber, Val Mayerik, and Frank Bolle.

    Obviously none of the writers using Jennifer Kale bother to research where she was last located.

    Not sure where to put it in the above profile, but the Witches storyline strongly hinted that Jennifer is a lesbian.

    The lesbian hints began before Witches, in Ivan Valez's Ghost Rider run--Chris Munn.
    Thanks to Chris for pointing out the Devil's Reign Crossover, as well as sharing info on the unpublished script to Ghost Rider III#94.
    If you want to check out that script, see his website: Vengeance Unbound:

    The Witches series also made Jennifer appear younger than she should be (she should be twenty-something, as confirmed back in Over the Edge#2) and made it appear as if she had never before spoken to Wong.

    The plot to locate Blaze's kids was dropped like a hot potato and not mentioned again.

    In Witches#1, Jennifer described her locale as the "Amusement Park capital of...". Not sure where that's supposed to be, but I'd guess around Orlando, Florida or near Disneyland in California.
