2015 marks the beginning of Marvel Studios’ Netflix programming, which focuses on their street-level superheroes. The online programming kicks off first with Daredevil, and will be followed by Jessica Jones (originally A.K.A. Jessica Jones), created by Melissa Rosenberg. Despite not being one of the more recognizable superheroes (Jessica has only existed for 14 years), Jessica Jones has a fascinating backstory, and with the impressive streak Marvel has had with adapting B-list and lower characters for live-action, Jessica’s adventures over 13 episodes are sure to be another exciting entry in this expansive universe. Besides, with all the superhero, sci-fi and spy adventures Marvel has been giving us over the past eight years, it’s about time we got a mystery story to watch…but still mixed in with action, of course.

Even though Jessica Jones isn’t scheduled to air right now, there’s still a lot we know about what’s coming up thanks to the casting and plot information released over the last several months. Take a look at what we know so far so you can get excited about Marvel’s second Netflix series.

What’s The Character’s History
What’s The Character’s History
Jessica Jones is a character who was created in 2001 by Marvel veteran writer Brian Michael Bendis. After being doused in radioactive chemicals and being stuck in a coma for months, she awoke to discover that she had superpowers, including super strength and flight. After a brief career as the superhero Jewel, she became a private investigator, although she continually was drawn back into her old life through different cases. In the comics, eventually she entered into a serious relationship with Marvel hero Luke Cage, and together they have a daughter named Danielle. Although she has temporarily gone back to being a superhero on several occasions, her main job now is looking after her daughter and making sure that no harm comes as a result of her superhuman-filled life. Outside of comic books, Jessica has only appeared in the video game Marvel Heroes and the book New Avengers: Breakout, so the Netflix series is set to be her highest-profile appearance yet.
