History:  (Avengers I#172) - After a battle involving the Avengers, Ms. Marvel, and Ultron erupted into her Catholic convent, Sister Jude confronted the Avengers and thanked them for freeing the convent from Ultron, but asked that they leave immediately, given that the convent was a house of worship. She also informed them that they would clean up and inform the proper authorities.

Comments: Created by Jim Shooter, Sal Buscema, and Klaus Janson.

Mother Superior was never seen in the story, but it was pretty obvious that she was not the same character as the villainess of the same name.

I couldn't stop humming the Beatles' song, "Hey Jude", while I wrote this profile...anyone get that while reading it?
