Kid Quantum is the name of two comic book superheroes in the DC Universe, both members of the Legion of Super Heroes.

The first, James Cullen, used a so-called "stasis belt" to augment his power to freeze time within a limited area to useful levels. He became a member of the Legion of Super Heroes and became its first member to die between his overconfidence and a belt malfunction.

The second Kid Quantum was Cullen's sister Jazmin. After her brother's death, she underwent surgery to augment her power to a level where she would not require the belt. Despite initial hostility to the Legion when she first joined, she eventually grew within the role to the point where she was elected leader of the team, thanks in large part to Cosmic Boy's recommendation of her. She later entered into a relationship with him.
