And Squirrel Girl?

So this Marvel TV thing means that they can go apeshit with established characters without paying through the nose unlike when some shmoe buys a license to play with just a few characters who hang out in one book.

I'm sure they'll use a number of obscure Marvel characters but any character that has it's rights tied up with another studio will be off limits.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

There's Spider-Man and then the rest are obscure... Regular people think stuff like the fantastic Four and Iron Man are made up shit like Meteor Man or My Super hero Exgirlfriend.

Regular people make me sick.

I assume this does not refer to Jeph Loeb, or--holy shit, I just read the actual article--the screenwriter of Twilight.

(Who still writes better than Jeph Loeb, but yuck.)

^ You realize when it comes to a big $$$$ franchise like Twilight, the screenwriter is just a hired gun with lots of guidelines and restrictions, right? Plus it's not like her source material is great to begin with.

Save her for the next Wolverine movie then?

(You didn't read Avengers last week? The man was once married to Madame Hydra, but this was tense.)

I can't believe that Oprah broke Hugh Jackman.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Jessica, now in her early 30s, decides to keep far away from others gifted with superpowers and to open her own detective agency. But once she settles down, she realizes she still has a drive to help people -- and finds herself assisting other superheroes.
Sounds generic.

I'm sick of superheroes. Where are all the space operas?

The Spider-Woman cartoon in the 80s was awesome.

I dare not watch it as an adult to learn otherwise.

I completely forgot about Scott.

It's unbelievable how long ago he died.

The seminal line from Alias: "How come every time you tell a guy he can do anything he wants, he always does the same thing?"

At the time many years ago, I saw this awkwardly pretty actress on 6 feet under, and I immediately thought of her as Jessica Jones and then she took all her clothes off.

Tina Holmes.

Good times.
For some reason I always thought the original look of Jessica was based on Jeanine Garafalo.

If Jessica was a foot shorter, but I see where you're coming from.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Where the hell did this Spider-Woman talk come from? That's Jessica DREW not Jessica Jones...and it doesn't really matter if people know these characters or not. The point is that when they are introduced as series that the series is crafted and written in such a way that these characters BECOME interesting. That's the whole point why Marvel TV is using this particular medium to push these second tier characters in the first place. I would kill for a Spider-Woman movie or mini-series btw. Another character that Bendis has dusted off, retconned,and made relevant again.

Even if the only requirement were basic literacy, it still would not positively indicate the existence of talent.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

Jessica Drew, the Spider-Woman, was Jessica Jones' SIDEKICK (How the mighty have fallen.) for a few issues of Alias. Gal pals who solved crimes together. Good shit.

The post in question mentions the Purpleman being rapey so i thought it was either a simple typo, brianfart or it was reference to Jessica's hench woman Jessica in refference to the extended characters in the comic... If the show were to focus on the two of them, the title might be: Jones and Drew? The Two Jessicas? Jessicaland (Oh goodness, the two of them working for Jessica Fletcher!)?

But anyway, that wasn't Jessica Drew or Spider Woman in Alias.

It was the Skrull Queen (Princess?) masquerading as Jessica Drew which since Bendis was the "genius" behind the entire Secret Invasion you have to wonder if he was seeding clues early in the game before he was having the SKrull Queen being a double agent against Hydra for Nick Fury and the triple agent against all humanity for her own personal religious crusade of colonization in the pages of the New Avengers.

I always thought that the reason the comic was called Alias was because of how the narrative inthe comic was phrased that the Jessica Jones character was disassociating or bipolar after "the incident"...

Why the fuck would it be called AKA Jessica Jones?

It's her name.

Her only name.

Re: AKA Jessica Jones coming to ABC

I dare say superheroes are the new space operas until another visionary like Gene Roddenberry (or Ron Moore) comes along again. I'd like a big sprawling television space epic too but these seem to be saved for a higher budget (i.e. movies).
