The Internet is full of weird images. As you run across them, put 'em here. I'll start with this scan of a random 90's trading card:



"Jamm Jams"??? Oh wait, it's JAMM(R)(TM). Why would you copyright such a name? Who else is going to take it?

And is this all he does? Is he named after his singular character trait, like a Harvey character? Does he get up every morning and start "jamming" in his goofy outfit with his backup dancers until the sun goes down, sleep, and repeat?

Are the girls holograms? As in....JAMM(R)(TM) and the Holograms? Does he have to yank an earring for this to happen?

Hmm. I don't know.

I could not see a thing, until I used an infrared filter to get this.

Seriously, I didn't see anything. Not even image or link code in your post.
Are you playing with our minds!

I have the comic book where this character is introduced. Jamm was part of the "New Blood" line of heroes that DC introduced in the early 90s. They were supposed to be more hip and cool and now, but they were more like an out of touch old person's idea of hip and cool and now and Jamm was probably the most already out-of-date of the bunch, trying to glomm on to the skateboarding fad years after it had passed. His actual origin is that an alien sucked out his spinal fluid and, instead of killing him, he got mind control powers and was later briefly sucked into the 30th Century. The tagline on the cover, "He's prodigious, dude!" is hilarious.

The only one of the "New Blood" to last was Garth Ennis' Hitman, who was actually kind of cool.

Those are Crossgen characters. I think the blond girl in the dress is the main character from Meridian. Kool-Aid man is sporting the Crossgen Sigil. Knocked out boy is from Scion. Knocked out girl is the main character from Mystic. It can be from any of those books or just fan-art, I guess.
