“Late last week, Marvel took a sledgehammer to our preconceived notions about how far it would push the boundaries of the television medium.

A lot of us are not familiar with the character : Jessica Jones. I myself have always been a DC follower and most of the time, take Marvel for granted. This is what I found about Jessica Jones.
