Bendis' Jessica Jones Racing The Hulk To ABC

Brian Michael Bendis’ walking, talking retcon, Jessica Jones, is headed to television. As the name of her original comics, Alias, has already been taken, the show has been given the name AKA Jessica Jones.

Twilight screenwriter, and sometime Dexter showrunner Melissa Rosenberg is the chief writer on the project. Variety report that it will be the first show from her Tall Girls Productions and, if it keeps moving ahead as it has been, will likely beat Guillermo Del Toro’s Hulk series to the air.

I asked Rich to sum up the character in a nutshell, and here’s what he told me:

A very normal person with superpowers injected into past Avengers continuity but trying to live a normal, or as normal as possible a life. Working as an investigator or a journalist. But life, especially superlife has a tendency to get in the way. She’s now had a child with long time on-again-off-again paramour Luke Cage and has joined the Avengers as a result. Although she and Luke now have Squirrel Girl as a nanny to help out.

I imagine the bit of that to survive into the TV version will be this:

A very normal person with superpowers but trying to live a normal, or as normal as possible a life. Working as an investigator or a journalist. But life, especially superlife has a tendency to get in the way.

Sounds like a nice way to do superheroes on the box. Bring it on.
