Voodoo is a superhero created by Jim Lee and Brandon Choi, originally appearing in Wild CA Ts before getting her own short-lived series written by Alan Moore.

A half-human/half-Kherubim hybrid who used to work as a stripper, Priscilla Kitaen was rescued from the Daemonites by the Wild Covert Action Team, whose ranks she joined under her stage name, Voodoo. As a result of her alien heritage, she has "The Sight", the ability to see Daemonites within human hosts. She is also capable of expelling them from their hosts.

In 2011, Voodoo was given a new series as part of the New 52 line of books. This series is a complete overhaul of the character and information about it can be found in Voodoo 2011.

Another version of Priscilla Kitaen appears in The Wild Storm.


  • As Long as It Sounds Foreign: She is not actually a practitioner of Voodoo. Her stage name was merely an attempt to play up her exotic heritage.
  • Bi the Way: She is openly bisexual.
  • Expy: In her original incarnation, she was basically a palette-swapped version of Jean Grey.
  • Fantastic Racism: When the team relocated to Khera, Voodoo was forced to live in a ghetto because of her mixed heritage.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: She somehow gained the ability to sprout claws from her fingertips at one point. Another story had her develop magnetic abilities.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After Zealot turned against her because of her Daemonite heritage, Voodoo quit the team.

  • Telepathy: Her main power is the ability to read minds.
  • Twofer Token Minority: She is mixed race (half-black, half-Kherubim) and bisexual.
