Jakita Wagner src

Jakita Wagner is a superstrong metahuman and member of Planetary.

Her father was Lord Blackstock (aka Kevin Sack), from whom she presumably inherited her superhuman abilities. Her mother was Anaykah, a scientist from the Lost City of Opak-Re, a highly advanced, hidden city somewhere in Africa.

In 1933, Anaykah became the lover of Elijah Snow and arguably the love of his life. Snow respected the laws of Opak-Re, which forbade inter-breeding between the inhabitants of the city and outsiders. Blackstock was not so respectful. When Snow was absent for a period of 18 months, Blackstock and Anaykah slept together out of simple boredom (to which neither of them had a great resistance). A baby girl was the product of their illegal union. As a half-breed, she was left outside the city to die while Opak-Re closed itself off from the outside world for good.[1]

On October 18, 1934, Snow returned to the city just as it was closing. A weeping Anaykah begged him to take care of the child if he ever loved her. Heart-broken, Snow rescued the child and placed her with foster parents in Germany. Her foster family, the Wagners, had undergone a strange experience with a crashed alien spaceship the year before. The Wagners named her Jakita.[1]

Jakita inherited the low threshold for boredom of both her parents and has channeled this into several avenues. She is notably promiscuous in her relationships and has been a member of the Planetary field team for at least a decade and led it for several years after Snow disappeared. Her relationship with Snow is complex - but it is clear that she feels a familial love for him, despite their constant bickering.

  • Decelerated Aging: Since she is actually in her seventies, it appears that she either ages very slowly or not at all.
