When We First Met – The Cast of Jessica Jones

In this feature we spotlight the various characters, phrases, objects or events that eventually became notable parts of comic lore, like the first time someone said, “Avengers Assemble!” or the first appearance of Batman’s giant penny or the first appearance of Alfred Pennyworth or the first time Spider-Man’s face was shown half-Spidey/half-Peter. Stuff like that. Here is an archive of all the When We First Met features so far! Check ’em out!

With Jessica Jones debuting this weekend on Netflix, I thought it would be fun to show you all the first comic book appearances of the various characters on the show…

Jessica Jones

We first met Jessica Jones in the opening pages of the first issue of her 2001 ongoing series, Alias, by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos (the book was for “mature readers only,” so skip over these pages if you have a problem with profanity)…

Luke Cage

Luke Cage made his debut in 1972’s Hero for Hire #1 by Archie Goodwin, George Tuska and Billy Graham…

After we learn of how Carl Lucas was framed and sent to prison, a doctor offers to experiment on him, which will hopefully help Lucas be paroled. However, an evil prison guard interferes in the experiment and the following happens…

Patricia “Patsy” Walker (Trish on Jessicca Jones)

Patsy Walker debuted in Miss America Magazine #2 in 1944 (by Otto Binder and Ruth Atkinson)…

She remained a mainstay of Timely/Atlas/Marcel Comics until the late 1960s.

In 1972, Steve Englehart added her to the actual Marvel Universe (she had made the occasional cameo during the 1960s) in the Beast feature in Amazing Adventures #11 (by Englehart, Tom Sutton and Frank Giacoia)…

In 1975’s Avengers #144 (by Steve Englehart, George Perez and Mike Esposito), Englehart paid off some of the plotlines he had introduced in Amazing Adventures by making Patsy into a superhero by giving her the suit that Greer Nelson had used as the Cat, making Patsy…the Hellcat!
