* MustStateIfYoureACop: Drug dealer Denny Hayes asks Jessica Jones, who's trying to infiltrate his inner circle, if she's a cop, and says that if she is, she's legally required to tell him. She isn't, but this doesn't stop him from ordering his goons to beat her up.

Jessica's powers are rather low-key by Marvel standards. She's [[SuperToughness tougher]] and [[SuperStrength considerably stronger]] than the average human, and she can fly. But she's not as strong or tough as big names like the Hulk or Thor, and [[RequiredSecondaryPowers she gets airsick and can't land very well]].



* EarthShatteringLanding: Jessica does this in the first chapter to frighten someone.

to:

* EarthShatteringLanding: EthicalSlut: Luke Cage, according to Carol Danvers at the start of the second arc. She says he likes sleeping with superwomen (including Jessica does this in the first chapter and Carol themselves; Carol also lists [[ComicBook/SpiderWoman Jessica Drew]], [[ComicBook/WestCoastAvengers Tigra]], and ComicBook/SheHulk), to frighten someone.which Jessica responds that she thought he was a NiceGuy. Carol insists that he ''is'' a good man and his sex life has nothing to do with it.



* GroundShatteringLanding: Jessica does this in the second chapter to frighten someone.



* ImmuneToBullets: Claimed by Jessica in the final chapter of the first story arc. A bunch of {{mooks}} point guns at her and she tells them that if they shoot, she's going to pull the bullets out of her coat and [[AssShove shove it up their rears]]. But her InternalMonologue says she's bluffing: she actually doesn't know if she's bulletproof and isn't interested in finding out.



* KidSidekick: subverted. A teenage boy hangs out around the stoop of Jessica's office, and begs her to make him part of her life. He even bargains for a position as her secretary using information from a case. Jessica, knowing all too well what happens to young people who get caught up in the affairs of super-heroes (as well as desiring to be left alone), wants no part in it.

* 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 similarly aware, 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.

Added DiffLines:

* NWordPrivileges: Luke describes himself as "the scariest nigga ever was" in the first chapter.
* NoPartyGiven: {{Averted}}. The President of the United States at the start of the series has a Democrat running against him ([[spoiler:whose campaign is trying to cause a scandal to smear ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, who has a good relationship with the President]]), implying he himself is a Republican.

* 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.
