Comic Book / Friday the 13th: Jason vs. Jason X

Go To

Terror times two.

A two-issue Friday the 13th comic from Avatar Press. Released in 2006, it acts as a sequel to Jason X Special, which itself was a sequel to Jason X.

A bunch of Salvage Pirates, which include the comic's protagonist Melda, discover the remains of Grendel in space and board the ship. Due to orbiting trash hitting the wreckage, the head of original Jason Voorhees ends up on the operating nanobot-table that constructed his Uber variant, which proceeds to give it his normal body by pillaging organic matter from the various corpses present from the movie's events. After most of the pirates are killed, Melda escapes on their spacecraft, with regular Jason as a stowaway. They end up in SS Fun Club, a holiday resort spaceship where the cybernetic Uber Jason is already causing carnage. The two Jasons soon meet each other, and start fighting.


Friday the 13th: Jason vs. Jason X provides examples of:

  • An Arm and a Leg: Uber Jason makes himself known aboard the SS Fun Club by hacking off one unfortunate guy's arm.
  • Battle Amongst the Flames: The conclusion of the Jason vs. Uber Jason fight takes place in the burning wreckage of the crashed spaceship.
  • Broad Strokes: Uber Jason is onboard SS Fun Club, where he ended up in Special, but the comic ignores the story of him ending up on original Earth, and pretends he was on Earth II all along.
  • Call-Back: Uber Jason hears the voice of his mother reciting her Motive Rant from Friday the 13th (1980).
  • Contrived Coincidence: Space is infinite, but apparently not infinite enough for the two Jasons to not end up in the same spaceship.
  • Cool vs. Awesome: Demon zombie serial mass murderer vs. cyborg demon zombie serial mass murderer! FIGHT!

  • Eye Scream: When the salvage pirates open fire on the regular Jason, he responds with throwing his futuristic machete into the eye of one of them.
  • Fantastic Slurs: "Wind-up" is a slur towards androids. When Melda finds out that Alice is an android, she apologizes for using the term in her presence.
  • Gorn: Aside from all the blood and guts gushing out in the story itself, the alternative covers once again feature all kinds of slaughter.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be:
    • One victim tries to elude the regular Jason by getting to an elevator, but is cleaved in half before its doors open.
    • When the two Jasons fight each other in the spa, one victim gets sliced in half horizontally, and other vertically.
  • Impaled Palm: When the regular Jason boards SS Fun Club, a mechanic tries to alert the security but is thwarted by getting a machete thrown through his hand. Another guy then tries to help him, and they both gets their necks crushed.
  • Mirror Match: Who else could give Jason Voorhees a proper challenge but Jason Voorhees himself?
  • Off with His Head!: Uber Jason kills the regular Jason by ripping his head off. He then takes part of his brain and stuffs it into his own to complete the memories of his mother.
  • Oh, Crap!: Melda's reaction when she goes to a bar, and finds Uber Jason there amidst the carnage. She then gets an another one when she is confronted by the regular Jason as she turns around to run.
  • Psychic Link: Regular Jason sees images of his mother in his mind and Uber Jason hears her voice. Their incomplete memories of her is what makes them fight each other, as they realize upon seeing each other that to complete them, they must kill the other.
  • Quizzical Tilt: Performed by both Jasons when they see each other.
  • Sword Fight: Essentially what the Jason vs. Jason fight is made of; machete against machete, with occasional punch thrown in. And lots of collateral damage.
  • Versus Title: Used as a subtitle.
