YMMV / Jessica Jones

(For YMMV tropes about the 2015 Netflix show, see here.)

  • Author's Saving Throw: Minor one in terms of her 2016 ongoing; a number of Carol Danvers fans were not happy with her being demonised in Civil War II over the use of a precognitive Inhuman, since a lot of effort was put into making her side look bad while making Tony's seem flawless, such as having Carol insist on detaining a woman Ulysses predicts being involved in a terror plot despite all evidence pointing to her being innocent. As it turns out, she is a terrorist after all, and is the first Big Bad of Jessica's new ongoing. Though it doesn't fix the damage, it does vindicate things by showing Carol was right about that one.
  • Base-Breaking Character: Shares this status with her husband when it comes to New Avengers. Either she's an awesome Action Mom with a really interesting background, or she's a shallow Spotlight-Stealing Squad and Creator's Pet with little to make her unique.
  • Creator's Pet: As stated before, many view her as this by her being a member of the New Avengers, which saw her creator replace a number of classic Avengers with characters he preferred. Her being the one to stop Scarlet Witch's breakdown in a What If? and her and Luke being the ones to bring down Spider-Man's archenemy Norman Osborn, rather than Spidey himself, in the opening arc of The Pulse didn't help.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Being in a MAX series meant that Jessica had a limited crossover with the Marvel universe, since Marvel did not want their mainstream characters showing up very often in such an edgy, provocative series. In order to free her from that restriction, Bendis toned her down significantly when she was brought over to The Avengers. Many fans of Alias were less-than-pleased with this change.
