This article is about the character. For the television show, see Jessica Jones (TV series).

Does it honestly look like I'm hiding? No, because no one wants to know. They'd rather feel safe. They'd sooner think you were crazy than believe that I could lift your car or melt your face with my laser eyes, which wouldn't leave a trace anyway.
―Jessica Jones to a rude criminal


Jessica Jones is a Marvel Comics heroine, she is the protagonist of the 2015 Marvel/Netflix television series Jessica Jones. She is portrayed by Krysten Ritter.

After a disastrous attempt at becoming a super hero, Jessica Jones exploits her street smarts and super strength as a private investigator in New York City, but finds herself drawn to heroism once more, eventually along side three other Hell's Kitchen residents.

Jessica Jones was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos.

Appearances

Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones lived in the New York area with her parents and younger brother. She was interested in watching people; she even kept a diary of her observations. During a family car trip, an argument between her and her brother Philip over a Gameboy distracted Brian Jones, who was driving, long enough for the car to rear-end the truck in front of them, resulting in a crash that killed everyone else in the car. She fell into a coma, her medical bills paid by a mysterious group called IGH. She was formally adopted by Dorothy Walker as part of an extended publicity stunt to further the career of her daughter, Patricia Walker, who was the star of a well-received television show called "It's Patsy!" Jessica did not get on with Dorothy, but developed a grudging respect for Patricia, or Trish, especially after she agreed to keep the secret that Jessica had developed superhuman strength. When Jessica caught Dorothy trying to make her daughter regurgitate a pizza, Jessica angrily thrust Dorothy away and convinced Trish to emancipate herself. Years later, Jessica struggled through a career of boring jobs with difficult managers, where her innate investigative abilities made her few friends. Trish tried to convince her to take up superheroics, but Jessica settled into a habit of saving people on a small scale in her normal clothes. During this period, she met Kilgrave, a man who used his ability to control minds to make her stay with him, consent to sex, and aid his ego-driven crime spree. Jessica hated her time with him, but Kilgrave was too careful to let her go. She only got free after being made to murder a woman named Reva Connors, at which point Kilgrave was hit by a bus. Withdrawing from her few friends, Jessica acquired a license as a private investigator in the state of New York. Despite being headhunted by Jeryn Hogarth, she chose to remain freelance, opening an office under the business name Alias Investigations. Jessica was hired by a woman to find her child's estranged father, Turk Barrett. She tracked him down to a hospital to tell Turk that his child's mother was looking for him. Under severe medication, Turk revealed to Jessica that he had fathered several children in his life. Jessica, annoyed, told Turk to straighten out his life, then proceeded to pull out his catheter and steal his money. The police arrived, so Jessica leaped to the roof of the hospital to escape. Jessica first found out about Daredevil while interrogating Turk. Although she was happy about the idea of someone trying to fix the city, she was rather distressed by the fact that there was guy fighting crime in a devil costume.
