'Jessica Jones' Shows Us That Super Heroines Can Be Flawed, Too

  • Netflix								Jessica Jones Season 2

The Marvel series stars Krysten Ritter as the titular Jones, a former superhero who starts her own detective agency.

Taking life takes a major toll on Jessica, even though it was for moral reasons. Plus, if Jessica gives this whole "not cutting herself off from people" thing a chance, surely that will include forgiving her sister? She may want to continue to operate in the shadows, but she is now known as a powered person by many she encounters, on both a personal and professional level. They also assume that being strong on the outside means being strong on the inside. Instead of being about power, it's about the consequences of power. In her way of mourning, Jessica is getting loaded at a bar and takes a guy to a bathroom stall for some intimate relations.

Alisa went on another rampage, murdering a nurse and severely injuring another in her escape.

The phrase should be her mantra.

What Jessica Jones is going for is good and makes sense for the character, it's just not the most interesting thing to watch, especially when there's not much else happening in the overall story. Hogarth, unable to move on from the trauma of one of Kilgrave's cruelest crimes-forcing her ex-wife, Deb, to cut her over and over again until her mistress, Pam, intervenes and accidentally kills Deb-is seeking solace in nihilism, turning even more self-destructive when she gets the news that she's developed a terminal illness.

Another difference is in the comic, he said, Jessica Jones' best friend is Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel), not Trish Walker, played by Rachael Taylor in the show. But when one of her clients who claims to have super speed, from the same experiment she underwent 17 years ago, gets killed by a powerful force, she realizes she has to look into her past. Unlike most superhero origin stories, Jessica's source of her powers is a mystery even to her. Jessica can't continue on this path indefinitely - because she would destroy herself, and because viewers would get exhausted of it and stop watching - but it's still striking to witness a series dare itself to bottom out in this way. She drinks too much.

RITTER: (As Jessica Jones) Get out.

The program does offer some promise with its new-character additions, including British actress Janet McTeer as a woman who holds clues about Jessica's past. Be sure to check out our spoiler-free review of Jessica Jones Season 2 before you Netflix and chill all weekend. Jessica's - and "Jessica Jones'" - timing would appear to be flawless, for she surely was made for this moment, as righteous avenger of the suffocating patriarchy. Jessica Jones is revelatory because it allows its heroine to feel her pain. But then again, maybe these particular heroes work better with their own solo shows.

Given less room for sarcastic one-liners and more room for introspection, Ritter alternates between maintaining her aloof composure and falling apart on screen. Jessica's ability to help Trish deal with her mother is one example. People around her refer to her more than once as a "vigilante superhero", as though the phrase were part of her name, and any time someone yelps, "You're a ticking time bomb?" you know they're trying too hard to convince you that something exciting is about to happen.
