She’ll soon be getting her own Netflix series, but Jessica Jones is fairly new to the Marvel Universe. We first met her in Alias #1, where she was a private investigator in New York who, as we later discover, went to school with Peter Parker (whom she had a crush on) and worked with the Avengers as her superhero alter-ego, Jewel.
One of the most high profile positions she’s held is wife of Luke Cage, with whom she has a daughter. Also, along with Cage, becoming owner and operator of The Avengers Mansion.
Jones possesses superhuman strength, resistance to injury and the ability to fly at sub-sonic speeds. She’s also a skilled detective and investigative journalist.
