Jessica Jones, Krysten Ritter, Marvel

Netflix

Your new favorite superhero is here and she doesn't have a costume. She doesn't have a code name. She wears ripped up jeans. She drinks. She's Jessica Jones. Krysten Ritter stars in the latest Marvel TV series for Netflix and she's taking no prisoners. The Breaking Bad and Don't Trust the B veteran makes her superhero debut on Friday, Nov. 20, and we've got new photos from the highly anticipated series.

Ritter's Jessica Jones had a short-lived superhero stint that ended in tragedy. So, what does she do? Starts rebuilding her life as a private eye in New York City. And her cases aren't just typical "my husband's cheating one me!" jobs. After all, She has superpowers. Doctor Who's David Tennant plays Kilgrave, the villain of the story. The Good Wife's Mike Colter is Luke Cage —he'll also headline his own series opposite Alfre Woodard, Rosario Dawson and Mahershala Ali—and Rachael Taylor is Trish Walker (comic fans may know her as Patsy Walker aka Hellcat). Carrie-Anne Moss, Eka Darville, Erin Moriarty and Wil Traval also star in the upcoming series.

Marvel's Jessica Jones hails from Dexter veteran Melissa Rosenberg, Jeph Loeb and Liz Friedman. The series is set in the same universe as Daredevil and the Marvel movies.

"We're not Daredevil. We don't have a costume with a mask," Rosenberg said. "We have a very talented actress, Krysten Ritter, and it's her face all the time. Our reality is extremely grounded. If you read the Alias comic books, it's Jessica Jones on the toilet with her pants around her ankles. Jessica Jones did not train in martial arts; she's a street brawler. If you piss her off, boom, she kicks you...She doesn't fly but she can jump many stories, and she lands really badly, which is why she doesn't do it too often. And the less you see it, the more believable it is. There will be flights in every episode and they'll get bigger and bigger and bigger but that's not my priority. That's not the nature of the story. This show is more character driven than anything like a scene in that universe."
