Jason Voorhees is the supervillain in the horror series Friday the 13th. Jason drowns as a child while attending Camp Crystal Lake, while two counselors were making love while they were supposed to be lifeguarding. Jason's mother, Pamela Voorhees, then goes on a killing rampage to avenge her son's death. At the end of part 1, she is decapitated. Although it is not clearly explained, it is generally perceived that when is mother was decapitated, it gave him supernatural powers. He could not die, but could be hurt. He is a serial killer that stars in Friday the 13th movies parts 2-4 and 6-10. (Pamela Voorhees was the killer in part 1, Roy was the killer in part 5) He has killed 133 people. Here are some of his vital stats:

Name: Jason Voorhees
Date Of Birth: Friday the 13th of June, 1946
Place Of Birth: Wessex County, Mass.
Race: Caucasian
Sex: Male
Height: 6' 5" (est).
Weight: 275lbs (est).
Hair: Blond, very little if any
Eyes: Brown

He is defeated in the following ways in each movie:
Friday the 13th Part 2 - machete to the shoulder
Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D - axe to the head
Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter - hacked to death with his own machete
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives - drowns and is chained underwater
Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood - a girl with paranormal powers uses her dead father to imprison Jason at the bottom of the lake again
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan - gets covered in toxic waste and reverts to a normal boy
Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday - niece kills him and is sent to hell
Jason X - sent into outer space, perhaps towards Earth 2

He recovers from the first two parts by just "healing" after a few years. He is buried after being hacked to death, but Tommy Jarvis dug him up to make sure he was dead and brought Jason back to life by sticking a metal post in him, which then got struck by lightning, reanimating him. After he drowns the first time, a demented doctor uses a girl with paranormal powers to bring Jason back to life. After he drowns the second time, a boat accidentally cuts a power line and brings Jason back to life again. It is not explained what happens to him after the toxic waste covers him, but is brought back to life "in spirit" by people eating his body. It is not explained how a body was captured in part 10, but they say they have been keeping him in cryostasis since the last time they caught him.

Jason will also be fighting horror supervillian Freddy Krueger in Freddy vs Jason, due out in August 2003.
