Kimber Benton is a character in the IDW Jem and The Holograms comics series written by Kelly Thompson, designed by Sophie Campbell, edited by John Barber and Sarah Gaydos, and published in 2015. She is the Holograms' lead keytarist. She is Jerrica's biological sister and foster sister of Aja and Shana. She debuted in the first issue.


In her new redesigned look, Kimber is taller than her sister Jerrica, and is still the main keyboard/keytar player and now co-writer on songs with Jerrica/Jem. Kimber is very much the energetic, spontaneous, impulsive and occasionally irresponsible woman like she was in the cartoon, easily getting lost in social media and anything new and exciting. She still feels a strong connection to Synergy, to the point of telling Synergy that she reminds her of her mother. What differs from the cartoon is that in the comic, Kimber is openly lesbian from the beginning and soon becomes involved in a relationship with Stormer of the Misfits. This tends to cause some strain within the respective musical groups due to them being rival band members.
