15 Reasons Why Jessica Jones Should Be Your New Favorite Superhero

Jessica Jones is not your typical Marvel superhero show. Rather than typical family-friendly fare, the Netflix series relies on dark story lines and a relatable, yet edgy lead character. As Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter creates a tragically flawed character who refuses to be a victim of her past. That is one of the many reasons why she is our new favorite superhero!
