Jessica Jones: Here's What the Main Characters Look Like in the Comics

Netflix

We're mildly obsessed with Netflix's new series Jessica Jones and not just because it's filled with awesome Marvel Easter eggs. Krysten Ritter stars as the title superhero-turned-private-investigator, and though she's killing it on the show, she does look different from the comic-book version of Jessica. In case you've also been wondering what all the main characters look like in their original forms, we rounded up pictures of them from the Marvel series. Take a look to find out which character is a different gender in the books!

Surprise! Moss's character is a man in the books. Moss told MTV News that the gender swap itself is an afterthought for her, saying, "I think [what's] more interesting to me is that I’m playing the first lesbian character in Marvel."

In the comics, Tennant's character is Zebediah Killgrave (note the two Ls) or, simply, the Purple Man. According to Tennant, there was never any serious consideration that he would be painted purple for the series.
