For those, like I, who weren't familar familiar with Jessica Jones (outside of the short appearance in Civil War book storyline). A primer for her and The Purple Man...

I had no idea she had so much interaction with others in the marvel universe, from the avengers and daredevil, to Spider-Man and jean grey. It looks gritty and interesting.

It's like Netflix has become the Marvel Max of old.

Of all the super-characters, and especially female ones, that Marvel has told us "Hey, we reeeeally hope you like this!", but still failed to be A-level (e.g. Dazzler*), Jessica Jones is the one that I hope makes it. Richest character development. And I'm already creeped out by The Purple Man even never having watched or read him.


*I liked the concept of Dazzler and her powers, and it's too bad her debut was kinda clunky. Marvel tried so hard it was kinda annoying. Then it seems they kept trying to recoup some investment with the Dazzler-ettes, Boom Boom and Jubilee. I remember wondering "Who's gonna be next? Rave Woman & Maglite Girl?"

Anyway...yeah, looking forward to more Heroes of Hell's Kitchen :D

Yeah the Netflix version of purple man seems, and I hope, is really creepy. I only hope they don't actually make him really purple skinned. More like he wears purple accents, and not total purple suits, and use purple lighting and effects, kinda like in the trailer, instead. An all purple guy will be corny...

It looks like they might kick out the whole Purple angle. Name & skin. In the trailer, Jones mentions his last name "Steelgrave". It works for me. Maybe they'll just go with that.

I kind of hope they ditch the purple thing. I really like how they did Fisk in the Daredevil series without deferring too much visually to the comics. Like, the scene where he confronted Ben about visiting his mother was eight kinds of menacing, but it's believable. I think it would have been less so if he was all giant and round.

Agreed. Half a dozen ways they could've made Kingpin worse and they chose none of them. Skilled adaptation happening there.

And, oops, I meant Killgrave, not Steelgrave. Steelgrave is another favorite TV villain from the 80s show 'Wiseguy' (that show had some great villains, but I digress).

I think I've discovered the inspiration for Jones's relationship with Purple Man...

He's there to remind her of the mess she left when she went away.
It's not fair to deny him of the cross she bears that he gave to her.
She, she, she oughta know...


Zanshin, should you happen to run into Bendis in your travels, tell him that I (the guy that used to work in the video store across the street from his old comic book sales job in downtown Cleveland...I got him an art interview, once!) said that Jessica Jones & Purps are Alanis & Full House Dude (and that they kinda reverse roles in a twisted way) :lol:

Excited for next season, but kinda sad that Killgrave won't be in it. David Tennant was awesome. Like, the sound of his voice made me feel physically uncomfortable. High hopes for season 2.
