* 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).

* CompellingVoice: The Purple Man's skin secretes chemical pheromones which, when inhaled or absorbed through the skin, allow him to control their actions and feelings by verbal suggestions.

* ReallyGetsAround: Not to an extreme degree, but given that Jessica finds out [[spoiler: she's pregnant with Luke's baby while she's with Scott]], either she went right from Luke to Scott or she cheated on Scott with Luke (it's strongly indicated to be the former). She also has sex with a local sheriff while upstate on a case (they were both pretty drunk).

* RapeAsBackstory: Discussed. Jessica has something dark in her past that she can't talk about. Scott Lang asks if she was raped, but Jessica denies it and complains that men usually leap to that conclusion. It turns out that [[spoiler:she was ''mind''-raped by the Purple Man, who tormented her by making her want to have sex with him but never touching her]].

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: In a {{flashback}} we're shown that Jessica got her powers when her family car crashed into a military truck carrying toxic waste. Her family didn't survive. She was adopted by another family, despite being in high school, but her adoptive family is hardly shown and she seems to have a rather distance relationship with them.

* ShoutOut: Although Jessica isn't a fan of manga, she says she watched ''Film/{{Akira}}'' and found it very intriguing. Her comatose mindscape has a Japanese style as a result.

* UnstoppableRage: Decking Scarlet Witch right after a very tough mission puts all of the Avengers and the Defenders in a state of uncharacteristic murderous fury. If Thor hadn't missed with his hammer swing, if Jessica weren't superhumanly tough to survive the Vision's punch, and of Carol hadn't rescued her, she almost certainly would have been killed by their retaliation. After finding out the truth, they all show up to apologize.
