Q: Who is the closest DC equivalent to Jessica Jones? -- @charlotteofoz
A: For what I suspect is a pretty obvious reason, this is a question that seems to be going around a lot this week, and it's an interesting one. As much as DC has experimented with it, the publisher has never had a lot of lasting success with street-level looks at how its universe functions. And really, that makes sense when you consider that its most famously gritty urban vigilante is also a billionaire who drives around in a rocket car and hangs out with his friends on the moon.
But there is a pretty good answer, and while I can't take the credit for thinking it up myself, it's definitely one that I agree with. If you're looking for a character to fill that role in the DC Universe, then you're looking for Cameron Chase --- and not just because they both have those alliterative initials.
The release of Marvel’s Jessica Jones this weekend put us one notch closer to the massive Defenders teamup, with Luke Cage due to arrive next year, and Iron Fist sometime after that. The lack of Iron Fist news has bred many a rumor of Marvel’s uncertainty over the series, though its TV head claims that announcements deliberately waited until after Jessica Jones had premiered.
We’re still basking in the glow of Marvel’s Jessica Jones this weekend, wondering if Netflix’s super-heroine will follow Daredevil‘s lead with a Season 2 renewal, but there may be a complication.

As Marvel fans the world over take in Netflix’s Jessica Jones this weekend, newfound fans of Jessica’s best friend Patsy “Trish” Walker (Rachael Taylor) may be surprised to learn that the series almost featured Carol Danvers instead, better known as our future Captain Marvel.

Anticipation for Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones will reach a fever pitch in the next few days, but once upon a time, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg nearly got the series off-ground at ABC, before Marvel ever started planning Netflix Defenders.
