November 20th, 2015. She will no longer be obscured by an alias or buried amongst the pile of forgotten superheroes on Marvel’s d-list. Jessica Jones is finally pushing her way to the head of the queue and earning some long overdue respect and acknowledgment. The world will know her name.
Originally conceived by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Graydos for their gritty 2001 Marvel MAX series, Alias, Jessica Jones was once a fledgling superhero with a less-than-exciting career until a chance encounter with Zebediah Killgrave (a.k.a. The Purple Man) left her traumatized enough to give up costumed heroics. She went on to open her own P.I. firm, Alias Investigations, and later assisted the Avengers on numerous occasions.

With the second season of Marvel/Netflix’s Daredevil looming on the horizon and casting rumors for Doctor Strange coming at fans like a swarm of locusts, now seems the appropriate time to discuss the pseudo-obscure, nocturnal medical professional who has tended to the health and well-being of both titular characters… Night Nurse. Is it really possible that this lone, “d-list” SFC (that’s “Strong Female Character” for you newbies) can be the knot that ties several of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s television shows into a wonderfully cohesive bow? Can she honestly make the MCU’s “shared” universe feel more, well, shared? If Marvel is smart with how they play their hand, the answer is a resounding “YES!”
