I hadn’t really known much about Jessica Jones, other than seeing her briefly in a previous comic and also a different version of her on Netflix.
I was a bit disappointed not to have the chance to see Jessica in one of her first appearances, even though I did enjoy seeing her romance with Luke Cage. I was a bit disappointed that her personality seemed so at odds with the way her personality was described beforehand. I didn’t really see any of the hangups she was supposed to have had.
It was good to see Jessica offered a job at the Bugle, even though I really didn’t like Jameson’s attitude towards her and the other superheroes. The person I felt the most sympathy for, however, was Terri. I felt that her actions were a direct result of how she’d been treated by her boss… and even though I wasn’t really able to learn much about her, she struck me as being quite a tenacious person.
It was good to see and have the opportunity to learn a bit more about Ben Ulrich. The only chance I had to see him was in the Daredevil television series, so even though he was mentioned in other comics I read, I liked being able to see him in person.
It was also really good to see Spider-Man. While Peter showed some of his trademark humour, I liked seeing the more serious side to him. And it was sad to be reminded of Gwen’s death.
It was interesting to have a glimpse into the two sides of Osborne’s personality. I was quite taken aback by how quickly he shifted into the Green Goblin persona.
There were some really good elements of tension in the first set of comics, particularly when it came to Jessica’s worry about her baby. And I thought her dream about having a girl was really sweet; even if I did think Luke could have been a bit more understanding.
I did particularly like the final comic, as it was sweet to see Jessica and Luke as a family with their baby. And even though the first scene was a bit sad and creepy, I liked that the comic ended on a hopeful note.
Even though it was good to see the other Avengers, I was somewhat confused by the exact timeline in relation to the rest I was reading.
I did like the elements of humour and also the hints of a deeper storyline involving a potential double agent. At some point in the future, I would like to see the origins of Jessica Jones.
