"A private detective and known meta-human working out of Hell's Kitchen." -Ben Ulrich, The Daily Bugle


Prone to bursts of temper and cutting sarcasm, but nevertheless excellent at what she does. An accessible person to approach if you are in trouble or need help of any kind.


"Maybe it’s enough that the world thinks that I’m a hero. Maybe if I work long and hard, maybe I can fool myself."

Character Details

Cranky and cynical, Jessica's work and past constantly invite her to see the worst in people. Nevertheless, she's got a big heart. She yearns for acceptance, and the rewards that come from forging deep connections with others. She struggles with addiction, depression, self-sabotage, raging guilt, and a host of other serious issues.

In fact, look up the word "issues" in the dictionary and you'd probably find her picture staring back at you.

Despite all this, she has a reputation for being someone people can go to if they need help. She'll tell you her primary weakness is she occasionally gives a damn. The truth is, she almost always does. She has a hard time turning away from people who are in trouble, in pain or in danger, primarily because at her heart, she wants to be a hero that the people in her life can be proud to know.

It doesn't hurt that she takes a lot of pride in her investigative skills, either. In fact, if asked, she'd tell you that's the one thing— maybe even the only thing— she knows for sure she will ever get right.



  • Jessica's birthday is November 1st.
  • Though few people guess this about her, Jessica reads voraciously on a wide variety of subjects.
  • Any kind of puzzle is like crack to Jessica Jones, whether it's a deep mystery or a crossword puzzle done on a stakeout.
