|Creator||Nelson Evergreen and Joe Macré|
|First Appearance||"A Damn Fine Hostile Takeover" part 2 (Oct. 1, 2010)|
The name "Jenny Nowhere" should be available for anyone to use in any way they see fit... but the character herself is a blank slate. How she looks, how she dresses, her character quirks, what her agenda might be - it's all up to the individual who wants to do something with the name. Anyone can create their own Jenny Nowhere from the ground up.
"We'd imagine that - whatever she is - she functions in some way as a "prime antagonist" to Jenny Everywhere; the yin to her yang and all that. This can obviously work in all sorts of ways. I like the idea that, in each universe, there's a Jenny Everywhere who's recognizably Jenny Everywhere in name, character, and appearance...and somewhere in each universe, there's a Jenny Nowhere who's recognizably Jenny Nowhere in name only."
Maybe creators should be encouraged to come up with a Jenny Nowhere that actively avoids comparisons with existing versions of the character...to go out on a limb and make up something totally unique.
In a nutshell: Use the name, make up the rest. Of course, one is not required to follow the "Jenny Nowhere" name and scheme, but it should be a fun idea that people can play with.
