JAX was originally created as a communications program. He acquired self-awareness, and is now an Artificial Intelligence residing in the special wrist communicators that are standard Clown Commando gear. He helps the Commandos communicate with one another, is a keeper of endless data, and can hack any system anywhere if ordered to do so. Since JAX is an A.I. that resides simultaneously in all communicators, he always knows the condition and location of every Clown Commando. He is also developing a rather brash personality.
