It seemed awfully similar to the comic to me.

Yeah I can see that. I guess I was thinking of the plot, not the tone.

Honestly if they put more emphasis on the Purple Man stuff it might end up more interesting? I mean I love the comic, but there's so many police procedural type shows on now.

I was honestly shocked they went with Purple Man. I seriously thought he was too vile a character to put on TV.

Glad I was wrong. This looks great.

That's the advantage of pay services. You can get away with this a lot easier.


Overall, it does look like they are towing the line between the expectations of the comic and the realities of the Cinematic Universe pretty well. I wonder how they will handle Jessica's first escape from Kilgrave.

Wasn't that when she knocked Wanda out while under control, right as the Avengers just came back from world-saving? Then she was facing a bunch of angry Avengers while slowly getting out of the mind control?

It's obviously a traumatic experience, but I can't help but see how that whole sequence would come out unintentionally hilarious.

It's a Netflix show...I mean, if we can have Ramsay Bolton on Game of Thrones, we have the Purple Man.

"You want to invite me in..."

Why, yes, Mr. Tennant! Shall we begin with the royal spanking?

"Wait, I didn't even use my powers yet. I think I better go..."

That seems rather tonally in line with the comic.

Anyway, it looks good and man is Tennant creepy as hell as Kilgrave.

Ritter looking as Jessica too and i like that the adapted the scene where she punched that guy through her office door.

Oddly, the worst thing about Killgrave was mentioned in AVENGERS ACADEMY. Jessica told Stryker that "If Kilgrave tells you to do something and enjoy it, you will enjoy it." Having memories of the awful things that happened and remembering enjoying it makes it even worse. (I think Angel and Spike getting their souls back in "Buffy" is similar.)

Still, I wonder how the backstory works without the Avengers and Jean Grey involved.

Kilgrave is legit the one Marvel villain I unequivocally hate, and would hate if he was a real person (even sans powers, just his personality). I always thought the only reason he's not frequently a bigger threat is that he's pretty petty and has low ambitions (at least in the stories I've read of him).

It took Doom to use his power on a global scale in Emperor Doom for one.

I think that's what makes him worse. That when he uses his powers and does these horrible things, it isn't even part as some plot to rule the world (or even the city), it's just because he was bored and felt like doing it. There's no bigger picture to stop, just one horrifying creepy monster who is just enjoying himself.

I would put Red Skull up there as well, but then again he's a literal super-Nazi.

-I wasn't expecting as much Luke Cage in the trailer as we got.
-It's going to be fun to see David Tennant/Doctor Who fans be so conflicted about their idol. "But, but, it's David Tennant and he's adorable, but he's so evil here, ahhh I don't know what to think."
-Ritter looks great.

So totally psyched. That police scene especially was a great showcase of the malevolence of Kilgrave. I'm amazed not only of the upfront teases of Jones' strength we're getting, but also her flight. No hints on Cage's powers though.

I think that Krysten Ritter has said that Jessica cannot actually fly on the show. But she can jump really high/far (Hulk-style basically), but is bad at sticking the landings. I'd have to go back and check again to be sure though.

I think that the whole "he made me jump up and down for hours, and then told me that I wasn't as good as you" thing is also a simple yet creepy example of Kilgrave's sadism.

Early Superman then. Leap tall buildings in a single bound. And it makes more sense in a world of semi-realism. She's got seriously enhanced strength and endurance, so of course she has the musculature to leap, scale things, but why would she be able to fly?

Idon't know why, but I'm really hoping Purple Man isn't retconned into having raped Jessica, though her experience with Killgrsve in the comics was arguably worse.
