Some set pictures from The Defenders have hit the Twitterverse!  The first set of pics shows Misty Knight and Jessica Jones meeting on the street.  Perhaps for the first time?  Jessica looks in pretty rough shape (more than usual?) with blood splattered on her face and clothes.  Misty has an incredulous look on her face so i’m guess this is their first meeting or maybe Misty has figured out that Jessica is a metahuman.  What do you think?

Also from the twitterverse….

The official twitter for the Defenders has been dropping title cards for returning cast members from previous Marvel/Netflix shows and it looks like Patsy, Stick, and Claire are all set to return.



Returning with them are Jeri Hogarth, Foggy Nelson, Karen Page and Malcolm from Daredevil and Jessica Jones respectively.  When will Luke Cage, Danny Rand and Colleen Wing show up?


Marvel’s The Defenders, or simply The Defenders, is an upcoming American web television miniseries developed for Netflix by Douglas Petrie and Marco Ramirez, based on the Marvel Comics superhero team of the same name. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise and is the culmination of a series of interconnected shows from Marvel and Netflix. The miniseries is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios, with Petrie and Ramirez serving as showrunners.

The limited series stars Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Finn Jones as Danny Rand / Iron Fist, all reprising their roles from their individual series. Development of the miniseries began in late 2013, with Cox the first actor cast in May 2014, and Jones the final of the title four cast in February 2016. Petrie and Ramirez joined as showrunners in April, after serving in the same role on the second season of Daredevil, and filming began in New York City that October.

The Defenders will consist of eight episodes, and is scheduled to be released in 2017.

Jessica Jones review

REVIEW Jessica Jones S1E6: AKA You’re A Winner!

Oh man s!@$ is getting real now.  We found out that Hope hired her own cellmate to beat her up because she was pregnant with Kilgraves baby.  As you probably have already surmised, she purposely got beaten to force an abortion.  The show has really taken a dark turn and is starting to turn up the heat.  It’s really a credit to the writing and direction because they are clearly not shying away from presenting that Killgrave is a disgusting rapist and that when backed into a corner, people will do anything they can to free themselves from the pain.

Killgrave has so utterly destroyed Hope’s life that it is almost inconceivable that anybody come back from this hell with any modicum of sanity. Hope states powerfully and in a way that will sure to stir the belief system and reactions of many a viewer, “I want to live.  I want to have children.  But I won’t give life to this thing.” We can infer from this that Hope is beaten physically, emotionally and psychologically but not broken.

Continuing on into the episode Jeri, the lawyer who has Jessica on retainer and played by Carrie Ann Moss has given a Hope a pill to kill the fetus, decides that she is going to keep the fetus for herself.  She wants to keep the fetus because she wants to replicate Killgraves powers herself.

At this point in episode 6, I’m starting to see the dark undercurrent that runs through all these characters.  These are all dark, twisted individuals who have had to make some tough decisions to ensure their very survival.  It gives everybody such emotional depth that it makes other superhero television shows pale in comparison.  (Supergirl I’m looking at you.)

Luke Cage returns to the show with a case for Jessica. It’s a case that takes a turn for the worst for our heroine when Luke tells Jess that she is a piece of s#!% for killing his wife and having sex with him. Not only is it an especially harsh criticism for Jessica because she was either partially or fully under the control of Killgrave, it’s devastating because she may just be falling for him.

But before we see this, we are treated to a pretty cool fight scene in a criminal marijuana distribution center where Luke takes on two dogs and a room full of henchman that he gets to slap around for a while.  He even utters his trademark, “Sweet Christmas!” upon entering the room.  Straight up fan service right there and I’m eating it all up.

Jessica tells Luke what happened to his wife.

Finally, Killgrave continues to be a Creepy McCreeperson as he offers to buy a seemingly random house in the suburbs.  It’s interesting to note that he did not use his powers of persuasion and made it a legit sale.  But why?  Minutes later we see that the house Killgrave chose was not random at all, but was Jessica Jones’ childhood home.

What’s he got planned?

We’ll find out next episode.

REVIEW Jessica Jones S1E5: AKA The Sandwich Saved Me

In an episode full of flashbacks, we see Jessica as an office drone, using her exceptional detectives to deduce that her middle management boss embezzling funds to wear suits and take “vacations” far above his pay grade.  And in a scene that would have made Peter Gibbons proud (if you haven’t seen Office Space… 1. Shame on you, and 2. Go watch it as soon as you finish reading this review) quits her job and join Trish for drinks and a life planning session.

Jessica and Trish team up to try and capture Killgrave using the Sufentanil that she stole from the hospital earlier and Simpson as the triggerman.  The fact that they were so close to capturing him will have anyone on the edge of their seat gritting their teeth when Killgraves personal security team shows up to stop the kidnapping.  It’s almost heartbreaking really but we still have 8 episodes to go.

We see later in the episode that Trish (who has been getting some sack time with Simpson) tries to get Jessica to wear her costume from the comics when Jessica operated as her “Jewel” persona.  It wouldn’t make too much sense to put her in the costume considering the tone of the show, Jessica gives the perfect sarcastic response, “if I wear that thing, you’ll have to call me Camel Toe.”

“If I wear that thing, you’ll have to call me Camel Toe.”



Jessica Jones as Jewel

Killgrave still remains a diabolical villain, evil to the core and almost flippant in his disregard for human life.  I’m surprised and a little disappointed in myself for not putting David Tennant on my radar a lot sooner, but I am convinced after this episode that he was the perfect choice for the Purple Man.  He’s got that perfect mix of style and confidence without an overbearing sense of bravado and it is just painful to have watched Jessica be forced to take smiling selfies and send them to Kilgrave in order to placate his sick obsession over her.  Ugh.  I need a shower.

Do I need to keep saying, “Another awesome episode”? Because it was another awesome episode.

REVIEW Jessica Jones S1E4: AKA 99 Friends

In this episode we get more backstory on Trish and her past “Patsy” persona (noting that her mom “blew half the jury” to make sure she got an acting award. Ew.) and the results of insulting Killgrave live on the radio.   Last episode Killgrave sent Simpson to her apartment to end her life and now both she and Jessica know that they could be watched by anyone at any time.  Simpson, apparently free of Kilgraves control for the time being, returns to Patsy apartment and upon seeing her alive is utterly confused on how he could do such a thing.

To get some of the heat off of them and hopefully calm the ire of the Purple Man, Trish is forced to go on live radio and offer a knee bending apology.  Having to apologize to a man as disgusting and depraved as Killgrave has to be utterly demeaning but hey, it’s better than being convinced against your will to jump off a roof or something equally as ridiculous.

Meanwhile, Jeri has been gathering clients/witnesses who have been a thrall to Killgrave and it’s clear that some people are making stuff up and some people have stories that are clearly horrific.

On a more humorous note, we see Jessica reference the MCU at large after being snookered into a trap by a client who claimed to be looking for her cheating husband.  In a room trashing scene almost as great as Citizen Kane, Jessica states that she lost count at 99 “gifted” individuals who live in that borough alone, “And they all hate attempted murder”.

Insert smiley face here.

Such a nice touch on the MCU that it just makes me love this show even more.

Finally, its revealed that Malcolm is the photographer was satisfying because we now start to see what his purpose is on the show

That’s my brief review of Episode 4.  I’ve already finished my binge watching session last Sunday, so now I’m just playing catch up with the reviews.  So stay tuned for more!

REVIEW Jessica Jones S1E3: AKA It’s Called Whiskey

In another solid character building episode, we see Jess and Luke bump uglies several times! Full on bed smashing, sweaty coitus!

Sweet Christmas indeed.

We get more screen time with the recurring characters in this episode.  Carrie Ann Moss’ Jeri Hogarth, looks amazing (and a whole heck of a lot like Robin Wright’s Claire Underwood from House of Cards) is working her damndest to get Hope free from prison while dealing with the issue of an estranged wife.

It’s interesting to note that we learn that The Purple Man’s abilities can be suppressed by anesthesia, specifically Sufentanil and Jessica hatches a plan to deliver a dose and knock him out for good.  It’s interesting to note that in New Avengers #3, the Purple Man who was heavily sedated prior to a mass super villain escape was not able to extend his mind control for very long over a stressed out Luke Cage.

Patsy shows off her Krav Maga skills to Jessica and boy those skills will come in handy sooner rather than later because our boy Killgrave is at it again.  After being insulted by Patsy on her radio show, Killgrave sends his newest henchman and our newest recurring character, Sgt. Will Simpson played by Wil Traval.  SGT. Simpson, under the control of Killgrave manages to trick his way into Patsy apartment soundly beating her down before Jessica shows up to save the day.  Jessica follows Simpson back to Kilgraves lair and stumbles upon his creepy room that is set up as an homage to Jones herself.

The Purple Man’s creepy hideout

In his lair we finally get a really good look as David Tenant.  I really like they how they portray Purple Man in this show.  He’s not the purple skinned weirdo from the comics, he’s more like a semi suave European huckster.  A man who without powers would be as nondescript as the rest of us.  But given the ability to control other people, well, he turns into a real dick head.

Fending off another attacker, Jessica manages to save a still mind controlled Simpson by faking a roof dive/garbage pile landing getting him far enough away from Kilgraves control to snap him out of it.

The binge watching continues….

Luke Cage, Hero For Hire (1972-1973) #15

16 Smashing Luke Cage, Hero for Hire Covers!


Jessica Jones (Marvel/Netflix) – Who is Patricia “Patsy” Walker?  

Created by Ruth Atkinson, Patsy Walker first appeared in Miss America Magazine #2 (cover-dated Nov. 1944), published by Marvel precursor Timely Comics. Redheaded Patsy Walker, her parents Stanley and Betty, her boyfriend Robert “Buzz” Baxter, and her raven-haired friendly rival Hedy Wolfe appeared from the 1940s through 1967 in issues of Miss America, Teen Comics, Girls’ Life, and the namesake teen-humor series Patsy Walker and its spin-offs: Patsy and Hedy, Patsy and Her Pals, and the single-issue A Date with Patsy.

Attesting to its quiet popularity, Patsy Walker (along with Millie the Model and Kid Colt, Outlaw) was among the very few titles published continuously by Marvel from the 1940s Golden Age of Comic Books, through Marvel’s 1950s iteration as Atlas Comics, and into the 1960s Silver Age of Comic Books.
Following Patsy’s high-school graduation, in issue #116 (Aug. 1964), the title switched from humor to become a young career-gal romantic adventure. Patsy Walker lasted through issue #124 (Dec. 1965), with Patsy and Hedy outlasting it to its own #110 (Feb. 1967).

Patsy and Hedy made a cameo appearance in Fantastic Four Annual #3 (1965), establishing them in the Marvel Universe.
