* WhatIf: As part of her backstory, Jessica is beaten savagely by Comicbook/TheAvengers after attacking them while under MindControl; when they realize this, they offer her a position as the Avengers/S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison. She declines. A one-off ''ComicBook/WhatIf'' issue (included in the series omnibus) revealed what would have happened had she accepted: she is happy, not depressed; as an outsider in Avenger's Mansion, she spots the mental problem that ComicBook/ScarletWitch has before she can cause the ''[[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avengers Disassembled]]'' debacle; she marries [[CaptainAmerica Steve Rogers]]. Notably, this story took place before she gave birth to her daughter, and she actually does eventually join the Avengers.

* MetaGuy: Killgrave is an interesting varient. Not only is he seemingly aware he's a comic book character, but he seems to think everyone else is as well, and interprets their behaviour as if they were attempting to have their series continued, and advises them to remain within their own continuity. So, in his mind, Jessica is a whore who provides {{Main/Fanservice}} by changing clothes on-panel, when to her she's just changing her clothes.

* ArtShift: One of the most masterful examples. For the most part, the series has a realistic but gritty and heavily shadowed aesthetic. Flashbacks to Jessica's teenage years, however, which begin by showing her pining over [[{{SpiderMan}} Peter Parker]], are drawn to resemble Spider-Man's introduction in ''Amazing Fantasy'', including a slight yellowing of the white space between panels to evoke the feeling that the issue is aged. Jessica's flashbacks to her single mission as Jewel are drawn in a somewhat cartoony, bright and colorful late nineties style by Mark Bagley, including the standard yellow information boxes (which were eschewed from the series in favor of atmosphere) and StanLee-inspired title graphic. And while being telepathically visited by Comicbook/JeanGrey while comatose, Jessica explains that the manga-esque atmosphere in her mind is probably because the most recent movie she saw was ''Manga/{{Akira}}''. In addition, in one arc Jessica is looking for a runaway teen. When Jessica examines the teen's scrapbooks for clues, the collages inside are created by David Mack.

* {{Expy}}: A former superhero named Jessica who became a private detective? Isn't Bendis fond of [[SpiderWoman another character like that]]? Actually, yes he is: ''Alias'' got its start as a pitch for a new series starring Jessica Drew, but Marvel wouldn't let Bendis use her. He quickly whipped up Jessica Jones as a replacement and the rest is history.

* LoveTriangle: Jessica and Luke Cage have history, but [[Comicbook/MsMarvel Carol Danvers]] successfully sets her up with the more sensitive Scott Lang (a.k.a. Ant Man II). Things are even more complicated by her mild (albeit unrequited) interest in [[Comicbook/{{Daredevil}} Matt Murdock]].
** As a corollary to this, Murdoch's main love interest Karen Page was also a victim of the Purple Man.

* NamesTheSame: A sub-plot of the first volume involves a woman hiring Jessica to find her missing boyfriend, Rick Jones. Rick Jones was a MarvelUniverse {{Muggle}} tied to various points in the company's history: he was the teenager rescued from the gamma bomb test range by Bruce Banner during the incident which turned him into the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk, and he spent most of TheSeventies palling around with CaptainAmerica and the rest of Comicbook/TheAvengers. When she finds him, he turns out to be a StarvingArtist musician who pretends to be the superhero hanger-on with whom he shares a name; he thinks it makes him popular with women, but only his CloudCuckooLander girlfriend actually believes him.



* SheCleansUpNicely: Jessica isn't unattractive at all, but she's very much a 't-shirt and jeans girl' and rarely wears makeup. Justified, since part of a private investigator's job is ''not'' drawing attention to yourself.
** Illustrated in an issue where she was trying to get into a nightclub while working on a case and was denied entry based on her appearance. She put on makeup and revealing clothing and was let right in.

yourself. This point was made clear in an issue where she was trying to get into a nightclub while working on a case and was denied entry based on her standard 'blue jeans, t-shirt, leather jacket' appearance. She put on makeup and revealing clothing and was let right in.
