Say yes to the Jess. Marvel’s Jessica Jones is, so far, the strongest series out of the company’s Netflix quintet (in this reporter’s opinion). Now she’s coming back to shatter windows, throw people up against walls, take shots of alcohol and dramatically shatter the glass all over the bar counter….you know, the usual.
Jones is a former superhero blessed with super strength and the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but instead of putting herself front and center, she uses her talents in a low-key fashion in the unglamorous world of noir-y detective work. And yes, she’s aware of that Spider-Man quote (and says so)….but is she aware Spider-Man is a real person in her world? Maybe she’s quoting one of the ancient philosophers Uncle Ben stole the phrase from.
Oooo, barracuda! Marvel’s Jessica Jones gets back on the case March 8.
