Jewel is a superheroine from Marvel Universe who got recently a TV show on Netflix. I've written about Daredevil made by Netflix which was a huuge succes, so I felt encouraged to watch "Jessica Jones" although I don't really like the main actress, but here she was OK.
So Jessica is an orphin (wow, that's new...) and as a teenager she goes to a foster family - a mother a slutty producer and her daughter a new rising star Patty who's used by her mother and made to vomit to look thinner. We don't really know how Jessica got her powers - she woke up in hospital after a car accident where her family died and suddenly she's extremely strong and quite fast, she can jump really high and long distance and she can run faster than an averahe human being (but not like Flash, or Quicksilver). She lives in Hell's Kitchen (probably next to Matt Murdock) and she works as a private detective. She meets Luke Cage - future Powerman and her husband - who's wife she was made to kill. So there is Killgrave, a real psycho murderer and a guy who can force you to do anything what he wants to, and you won't stop trying to do it until you succeed, so he's walking around looking for Jessica because he thinks he loves her. With a true, psycho, horrifing love.
Jessica never got her nickname Jewel in the show, but there's an easter egg about it;p
Netflix is making also another show about Luke and Ironfist, so we're gonna have all the defenders in one TV show! But we will have to wait a lot, because Deredevil will be released in april next year, Ironfist hasn't been cast yet, at least there are no official statements and I don't know when there will be the premiere of Luke.
But I can't wait for the Daredevil, because he's gonna fight with Punisher! (fangirling)
