With season 2 of Jessica Jones here, we compare Jessica’s character arc to Matt Murdoch’s: two characters who are similar in many ways, but choose drastically different paths in their second season.

When Daredevil was released on Netflix in 2015, fans were delighted to see Matt Murdoch’s story portrayed by such a great cast, stunning visuals and a wonderful universe that welcomed the Defenders. Jessica Jones followed soon after, to even more stellar reviews which praised its depiction of a strong female character, its handling of difficult themes, and its unapologetic toughness.
