as Jessica Jones
Looking for a whiskey-drinking, PTSD-plagued, super-powered private investigator? Jessica Jones is your girl. “I think people enjoy seeing a woman who doesn’t look a certain way, who is strong, asskicking, who isn’t rolling over and dying. She shows real strength,” says Krysten Ritter, who plays the titular character. Beyond her physical strength, our favourite antihero also makes the tough decisions a lesser detective would avoid, and is holding her own as one of the few female superheroes in Marvel’s spinoff TV series The Defenders.
