  Yellowjacket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yellowjackets are fl-and-yellow wasps of the genus Vespula or Dolichovespula (some can be fl-and-white, the most notable of these being the bald-faced hornet, Dolichovespula maculata).
European yellowjackets (the German wasp, Vespula germanica and the common wasp, Vespula vulgaris) were originally native to Europe, but are now established in North America, southern Africa, New Zealand, and eastern Australia.
The bald-faced hornet, Dolichovespula maculata, belongs among the yellowjackets rather than the true hornets, but is not usually considered one because of its ivory-on-fl coloration.

Yellowjacket was freed again, this time by her former teammate, the Fixer, motivated by more amorous intentions.
Yellowjacket was quickly welcomed and she became a staunch member of the team.
