Jay, the third oldest of the Guthrie clan always grew up in the shadow of his older brother, Sam. When Sam and Paige moved away, he moved to daddy of his kajillion bro's and sis's. What the hell does his mother do, anyway? There's always a kid taking care of her kids... N.E.Wayz, before Jay grew his wings, he helped his brother Sam rescue Lila Cheney, Dazzler and a third band member from a plane crash. Lila had been knocked out. Dazzler had ran out of the sound needed to fuel her light based powers. Josh, risking his own safety, played some music, giving Dazzler enough fuel to help blast an escape route.
When he developed powers of his own, he hid them from his family, but took a page out of dazz's book, and used them as a stage gimmick. He soon got entangled with a hillbilly princess named Julia Cabot, who they decided to break the mold, and not breed with one of their cousins, and fell in love. This didn't set well with Daddy/Uncle Cabot. And he went to war with the Guthrie's/X-Men. This didn't go well, with Julia ending up dead, and Jay wishing he were dead.
A little while later, he joins the Xavier institute, and has a fling with a cuckoo. But that didn't last long. He later joins the Hellions squad, but not liking them, ends up joining the New Mutants squad after a botched escape attempt for Wither. He stays with the New Mutants, developing an attraction for Dust, when, dun dun dun...M-DAY HITS!! One of the few remaining mutants alive, he retardedly goes to Bill Stryker, an evil evangelist, and has his wings amputated because he thinks God will grant mutants back their powers. Cutting his wings off also stops his mutant healing power, but he refuses to allow Josh (Elixer) to heal him, because he's weird for some reason. He goes back to Stryker's place, and upon revealing his true plan, Stryker shoots Jay. Killing him. How sad:(
Did you know?: His regenerative healing powers manifested when distraught over thinking that he had been killed by her uncle, his hillbilly “Juliet” dragged his body into a river so that she could die with him. She died and he awoke.
