Jessica Jones: Origins and Evolutions

Learn the origin and history of Marvel’s Jessica Jones!

When Marvel Entertainment and Netflix announced their plans to create four new series based on street-level characters that would culminate in a mini-series of The Defenders, among the characters were Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, but there was one more name that stuck out – Jessica Jones. Superhero’s lives are often defined by tragedy and Jessica’s life was no different, but it was also mired in sadness and hardships. From her failed superhero career to her second failed superhero career to being a down-on-her-luck private investigator, Jessica has had it rough, to say the least. 

To casual fans, the “Man Without Fear” and the “Heroes for hire” are well known heroes, but despite a critically-acclaimed debut series, not everyone knows about Jessica Jones. With that in mind, we’ve gone through the character’s entire history for our latest Origins and Evolutions feature, which you can check out in the gallery below!

Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix is Executive Produced by series Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (Twilight, “Dexter”) and Liz Friedman (“Elementary”), along with Jeph Loeb (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Smallville,” “Heroes”), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television. Marvel’s Jessica Jones will premiere in full on Netflix November 20, 2015 at 12:01am PT in all territories where Netflix is available.
