When We First Met - The Cast of Jessica Jones

Frank Simpson/Nuke (called Will Simpson on Jessica Jones)

Good ol' Nuke debuted in 1986's Daredevil #232 (by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli)...

Jeryn Hogarth (there is a female version of Hogarth on Jessica Jones called Jeri Hogarth)

Daniel Rand' lawyer, Jeryn Hogarth, debuted in 1976's Iron Fist #6 (by Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Frank Chiaramonte)...

Interestingly enough, just like how Jeri Hogarth is going through a divorce, Jeryn Hogarth was divorced. His ex was named Thelma, though, and he had a daughter (as shown in Power Man and Iron Fist #110 by Tony Isabella, Greg LaRocque and Brad Joyce)...

(As you can see, Hogarth went through quite a makeover over the years)

Oscar Clemons

The police detective debuted in The Punisher Vol. 284 #1 (by Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto), investigating the wedding massacre that ended up driving much of that volume of The Punisher (as the bride in the wedding survived and sort of became Frank Castle's partner)...

Reva Connors

Luke's dead wife on Jessica Jones was also a key part of Luke's original origin in Hero for Hire #1 (by Goodwin, Tuska and Graham), but she didn't fare much better there, living-wise...

Claire Temple

Introduced in the second issue of Hero for Hire (by Archie Goodwin, George Tuska and Billy Graham), Claire Temple was a doctor working with the doctor whose experiments gave Luke Cage his powers...

Malcolm

In Alias #6 (by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos), we meet Jessica Jones' neighbor, Malcolm...

Kilgrave (The Purple Man)

Debuting in 1964's Daredevil #4 (by Stan Lee, Joe Orlando and Vince Colletta), the Purple Man is a messed up dude...

That's it for this installment!

Feel free to e-mail me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com to request more comic book firsts for spotlight in this column! Travis Pelkie asked me to do one of these for Supergirl, so I'll probably do that in the next month or so (let them feature a few more characters to make it more worth it).
