When it comes to obscure Marvel heroes that you would never expect to see cross paths with Jessica Jones, the hard-drinking private eye, nobody beats the Whizzer. A speed demon with a bright yellow costume and crazy origin story involving a mongoose-blood transfusion (yes, really), the Whizzer raced into existence in 1941, when Marvel was still known as Timely Comics. After a not especially distinguished 77-year career, he’s now the surprising centerpiece of Jessica Jones‘s Season 2 premiere, which debuted on Netflix — along with the rest of the 13-episode season — today.
Jessica Jones was a hero for the age of #TimesUp and #MeToo before those movements were born. Season 2 may have a slow start, but there's much to look forward to.
In Season 2, Jessica Jones ventures into anger management therapy. But she's still going to kick butt, showrunner Melissa Rosenberg assures us.

Jessica Jones will be back on the case in March. Netflix announced on Saturday afternoon that its Krysten Ritter-fronted Marvel series will release its 13-episode Season 2 on Thursday, March 8, while also dropping this minute-long teaser (which at the very end “evokes” a lesson Peter Parker once learned): Try not to get in the […]
This week, Netflix’s Marvel series, "Daredevil," "Jessica Jones," "Luke Cage," and "Iron Fist," will finally come together in "The Defenders."
Fans of “Jessica Jones” will see another familiar face when the show returns for Season 2. Netflix confirmed Monday that David Tennant, who played the menacing Kilgrave, is set to make an appearance.

But with the range of tone, genre, casting, styles of writing and direction — this was truly a ripe year for drama, spreading across network, basic and premium cable, and streaming as well.
