Release Year: 2015

Jessica Jones may not have been the most popular or recognizable Marvel character, but I loved the Netflix TV series about her character. Set in the same Hell’s Kitchen universe as Daredevil, Jones has her own private investigation agency called Alias Investigations she began after she failed as a superhero.
She’s got a broken and battered past that haunts her present and threatens to ruin any chance she has at a happy future with the biggest haunt of her past being Kilgrave (Tennant) who used his mind control powers to make Jessica his slave and make her do unspeakable things to him and for him.
You don’t need to have read the comics to appreciate the series, but if you did, the series was probably even more awesome for you than those who didn’t read the comics. It’s one of the best superhero shows on TV and easily one of the best in the crime shows.
The series ended after three seasons.
