Known Relatives: None

First Appearance: Mandy #347 (D.C.Thomson, September 8th 1973)
Powers/Abilities: Able to fly, apparently at great speed. Her flight abilities seems to originate from wings on her ankles. She is also able to generate what seems like some sort of gravity wave that can deflect bullets. Also able to mentally send and receive radio signals.
History: Jackie Flash is an alien from an unspecified planet (possibly Mercury) who decided to visit Earth to sightsee. She became close friends with a human family, and stayed with them for several months before receiving a summons to return home.
Comments: Jackie Flash is a reworking of Jack Flash, who originally appeared in the Beano. However, other than the name and basic abilities, she is a distinct character in her own right. Her strip (or the first installment of same, on the off chance it reappeared later) lasted from Mandy #347, cover dated 8th September 1973, to Mandy #360, cover dated 8th December 1973, skipping issue #355.
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
Jack Flash, her male predecessor
