#15 – Jessica Jones


15 Jessica Jones

Today we talk about Jessica Jones: on/off superhero Jewel, Knightress, and Powerwoman, but due to her supremely brutal backstory, is mostly in the business of being a super powered private detective and journalist.

Some BIG OL' content warnings on this one folks for emotional abuse/manipulation and sexual assault (we don't go super in-depth on them but they are mentioned and discussed).
