SPOILER WARNING: This article contains spoilers for “Jessica Jones” #1, which is on sale now.
A lot has changed for Jessica Jones in the decade since she last headlined her own series. She’s married Luke Cage, served as an Avenger and gotten her very own acclaimed Netflix television series. This week’s “Jessica Jones” #1 finds the private eye down on her luck and, similar to where she was when she debuted 15 years ago, on her own.
The all-new “Jessica Jones” #1 reteams Jessica’s creators and original “Alias” creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis, artist Michael Gaydos and colorist Matt Hollingsworth. In true Jones fashion, issue starts off with her at a low point as she’s released from a high-security prison known as the Cellar.
We don’t know why Jones was in the Cellar or why she’s been released. All we know is that no one’s there to greet her or pick her up when she steps out of jail — not even her husband or her superhero friends.
Jones returns to her Alias Investigations office and, before she can even check her messages, she gets an unexpected and less-than-friendly visit from Misty Knight.
After quickly throwing Misty out, Jones checks her messages and hears from Carol Danvers who urges her to “fix this” problem. Jess sidesteps this by taking on a client — but her distraction doesn’t last long. She’s being followed. By Spider-Woman.
Jones presumes that a mysterious “he” is sending all these superheroes after her to confront her about “the baby.” Jones gives no information about this child during any confrontation, opting to either punch or shrug her way out of giving an answer. But we soon find out who the “he” is and who “the baby” is — and it’s not good news.
The “he” is Jones’ husband Luke Cage and “the baby” is their daughter, Danielle. Jones and Cage’s history goes way back; they first hooked up in 2001’s “Alias” #1. Danielle Cage was born in 2006’s “The Pulse” #13, and Luke and Jess were married a few months later in “New Avengers Annual” #1. Their relationship has had ups and downs, but recently they ran the Mighty Avengers together and Jess has been shown with Luke in a domestic setting “Power Man and Iron Fist” series. Something has happened to Danielle, though, prior to “Jessica Jones” #1. What that is and how it will affect Jessica Jones’ family life remains to be seen.
“Jessica Jones” #2 will arrive in stores on November 16.
