* 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.

* MadeOfIron: As part of her backstory, Jessica as [[MindControl Jewel, under The Purple Man's influence]], takes a hit in the face from The Vision. She does note that it broke her nose, knocked out a few teeth, and injured her neck.

* 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 [[Franchise/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 Creator/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.
