Defenders Preview: Jessica Jones

Hello Crimefighters!

With the Defenders coming soon on Netflix, it's a good time to run back through some of the amazing and astonishing characters that make up the team! Today's post is about Jessica Jones AKA Jewel AKA the Pulse AKA Jessica Campbell Jones Cage (with of Luke Cage in the Marvel universe).

Jessica Jones is a really great character, as she brings a special realness to what it might be like to be a super-powered hero. Having attended school with young Peter Parker, Jones received her powers through an accident -- radio active chemicals being hauled by the military got on her when her father ran collided with the convoy -- and this was just the first of many crazy experiences for her.

After donning a costume and going by the name Jewel, she is for a brief period the mental slave to Purple Man, an evil-as-evil-can-be villain in the comics. Part of this period is recalled in the Netflix series found at this link.

Jessica Jones #1 (2015)

There are many great stories featuring Jessica Jones, so I've linked a handful of pages and Marvel Unlimited issues below. Be sure to enjoy this series before the Defenders starts in August.

You'll love the peculiar adventures of this not-so-typical "hero" -- check out the comics and the Netflix series today.  

Until next time,
