Disney owns a lot of stuff right now. It freaked me out a wee little bit last year when I stopped at a Disney Store last Christmas and was reminded they now have Star Wars, Marvel Comics, and the Muppets.
Point is, we here at Gabbing Geek have inadvertently ignored one of those properties because another one just put out a new movie.
Anyway, here’s some thoughts on the new Netflix series Jessica Jones. SPOILERS after the cut.
If you are like me, and I know I am, you’ve been enjoying the Netflix series Jessica Jones. Using subject matter that makes Daredevil look like a Care Bear Holiday Special, the series has done its own take on the story between former third rate superhero turned first rate private investigator Jessica Jones and all-around sociopath Killgrave.
In the comics, of course, Killgrave goes by the name the Purple Man because he is, well, purple. But there’s another Marvel villain lurking on the show. I haven’t finished the series yet, so I don’t know how bad the guy will get but…see who it is with some SPOILERS after the cut.
You know what would be really convenient playing Texas Hold’em? The ability to control people’s minds and to get them to do whatever you want. It’s not every hand you flop 4 Jacks like I did at my weekly game last week. Usually you have Ace King and a 4-5-9 flop shows up to ruin your day.
Anywho, after the break, the Purple Man has the ability I don’t and it doesn’t matter what the flop is.
I don’t know much about Jessica Jones, something I know I have to remedy. The only books that I have read with her in it she usually shows up for a panel and whines to Luke Cage about protecting their baby and fades back into the background. By the looks of the trailer from Netflix (and I assume the Brian Michael Bendis series it is based on) Jessica’s past is pretty dark and convoluted. Decide for yourself after the cut.
Another new teaser from Marvel and Netflix for AKA Jessica Jones has been released today. And we finally get some dialogue and a look at Jessica’s face. (In case you don’t know what Krysten Ritter looks like.)
