MARVEL AVENGERS ACADEMY

In the world of Marvel Avengers Academy, our young heroes can’t seem to catch a break between exams and super villains hellbent on destruction. Marvel.com writer Justin Synder caught a few minutes between classes to chat with Allen Warner, Lead Narrative Designer at TinyCo, to get you all the details on the Jessica Jones event, inspired by “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” the first two seasons streaming exclusively on Netflix.

Marvel.com: What brings Kilgrave out of the woods now?

Allen Warner: New York has been decimated by the recent attacks of government-created Hulks, and the entire world is panicked because of the imminent arrival of Thanos. Being the sleazy manipulator he is, Kilgrave takes advantage of the chaos by using his mind-control powers to set the city’s most powerful crime families against one another. As they knock each other out one by one, he assumes control of their resources and minions, quickly turning himself into the new kingpin of crime. As you can guess, this immediately puts him in the crosshairs of not only the Defenders and the Avengers, but rival criminal masterminds like Madame Gao and Kingpin.

Marvel.com: Jessica has quite a history with him. How will their past influence the event and her story?

Allen Warner: In our world, they’re both younger, and have yet to really cross paths. As an investigator and a hero, Jessica knows about the seedy side of the city, so she knows about Kilgrave being an arrogant scumbag who’s done horrible things, but it isn’t as personal or serious as it’s been portrayed in the comics and TV show. That being said, she doesn’t have any respect or patience for manipulative people like Kilgrave, so she takes it upon herself to shut down his operation, and make it very clear that he isn’t welcome in her city.

Marvel.com: What new faces will we see join the Academy as Kilgrave puts his scheme into action?

Allen Warner: Our new character this event is the Hood. We thought it would be cool to being in an antihero who would have a personal vendetta against Kilgrave for ruining his own criminal operation. The Hood has an amazing power-set, and some interesting history to play off with characters like Doctor Strange and Mysterio and Mephisto, so it made for some really cool interactions and stories. His visual levels look awesome, and his top visual rank is probably the most wicked looking character we’ve ever featured in Avengers Academy.

In addition to the Hood, we’ll also be bringing back Jessica Jones, Hellcat, and Luke Cage. These are a few of my favorite characters we’ve ever featured in the game from their visuals to their animations to their stories. It’s a lot of fun to bring them back together again along with some of the other Defenders to see how they deal with Kilgrave, and how they view the looming threat of Thanos.

Marvel.com: Seems like our heroes will need some new tech to combat Kilgrave and his mind control abilities. Who suits up in new gear to bring the fight to Purple Man?

Allen Warner: We’re adding awesome new outfits for Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Spider-Woman. Two are all-time classics from the comics, and the third is a more obscure choice that’s a perfect fit for dealing with both Kilgrave, and the threat on the horizon. Each one completely changes the look and vibe of their respective character, and I think people are really going to enjoy adding them to their campus.

Marvel.com: Kilgrave as a villain differs quite a bit from most we’ve seen at the academy. What was it like to write him and this story?

Allen Warner: Having removed the most atrocious acts that he hasn’t committed in our universe, we’re left with an arrogant, egotistical, sarcastic, insecure sociopath, which actually makes him pretty similar to quite a few of our villains, and even a few of our “heroes.” It was actually really interesting to bounce those traits off of the other characters, and see how they each react. One of my favorite things about the story in this event is that it’s the first time we’ve spent a lot of time watching the various villains interact, and it’s really interesting to see the natural hierarchy, and in some cases, unexpected heroism, that results from their rivalries. It turns out that heroes like Jessica Jones aren’t the only ones who want to knock the smirk off Kilgrave’s face.

Marvel.com: Thanos still lurks on the horizon. Can we expect to see him make his move soon?

Allen Warner: VERY SOON. I can’t wait to finally reveal the secret origin of the Avengers Academy universe, and talk about all of the amazing new heroes and outfits we created to help our heroes win the Infinity War.

Channel the Power Woman in her event starting this Thursday, April 12. Download the mobile game on Google Play and iTunes.

The Power Woman brings her tough exterior to the hit mobile game!

In celebration of the Season 2 release of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones,” now streaming exclusively on Netflix, a brand new 5-star Jessica Jones is on the case in “Marvel Puzzle Quest” starting today! D3 Go! Producer Josh Austin dropped by to give us the lowdown on Jessica Jones and her incredible strength.

Marvel.com: It’s International Women’s Day and Jessica returns for the second season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” on Netflix. It’s natural we’d see the Power Woman make her way to “Marvel Puzzle Quest.”

Josh Austin: The entire team are big fans of the show on Netflix, so it’s super cool to bring her to the game as the newest 5-star character in time for her Season 2 return! She’s known for being tough and irritable on her Netflix show, but definitely someone you do not want to cross or mess with as she will quickly show you the error of your ways!

She will be featured in a limited Jessica Jones event that the player can earn tokens for between March 8 – 12 in the Avengers vs. Ultron event. Our friends at Marvel Insider have made things a little sweeter by offering 30,000 Insider Points for anyone that scores 500,000 or more points in the Avengers vs. Ultron event. Visit Marvel Insider for more details.

Marvel.com: What does a 5-star Jessica Jones bring to the table?

Josh Austin: Jessica Jones was designed like her show counterpart, she is a no-funny business character. Each of her powers deal damage or helps you deal even greater damage. She isn’t someone who will try and help or make things cozy, instead she will slam her door hard even if it means replacing her window again-and-again or take pictures to find and exploit weaknesses, then body-check you. Don’t try and make her smile, she hates that.

Marvel.com: Jessica isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty and get up in your face. How does her abilities in “Puzzle Quest” reflect that?

Josh Austin: Her first ability is called Defenestrate and it costs 9 Red AP. This power deals 11,331 damage at level 450 and power level 5. This power also creates 5 random Green, Yellow or Purple Strike tiles of strength 373.

Her second ability is called Body Check and it costs 11 Black AP. For this ability at level 450 and power level 5 she deals 15,764 damage plus 2,626 damage for each color of each friendly special tile on the board.

Her last ability is called Damning Evidence and is a Passive Blue AP ability. At level 450 and power level 5, Jessica gets the dirt on enemies with her camera which means at the start of the players turn, create a Red, Black or Blue enemy trap tile if fewer than 4 exist. When you match one, gain 3 AP in strongest color and deal 10, 123 damage. At the start of your turn, if you have at least 6 Blue AP, Jessica gets a lead on her subject, briefly revealing enemy Trap tiles.

Marvel.com: While Jessica often prefers to work along, what teammates would she work best with in-game?

Josh Austin: Jessica is strong with allies that create special tiles across different colors like Agent Coulson, Blade (Modern), Carnage, Gamora (Awesome Mix Vol. 2), Rocket and Groot (Awesome Mix Vol. 2) and more. She is also strong against enemies that creates trap tiles.

Run down a list of Jessica Jones’ greatest team-ups!

Despite her reputation for being a bit taciturn, Jessica Jones has repeatedly proven herself to be a powerful partner when facing down super villains, finding missing persons, or upending criminal conspiracies.

On January 17, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez’s DEFENDERS #9 sees Jones set out to prove her abilities as a teammate once again. This time, as the last Defender standing, she reaches out to a few friends to help ensure a new Kingpin of Crime doesn’t take control of New York City.

As a reminder of her readiness for the task, we put together a list of her most memorable relationships.

Spider-Woman
Jessica Jones and Jessica Drew hit it off from the start. When they first encountered each other, they’d both largely given up the costumed life and embraced work in private investigation—Jones in New York, Drew in San Francisco. Both used dark humor to cope with their difficult pasts and both developed distastes for the super communities they’d left behind. Despite their reluctance to rejoin the fray, they couldn’t stand to see a member of that community—Mattie Franklin, A.K.A. the newest Spider-Woman—taken advantage of by a deceptive Mutant Growth Hormone ring, so they combined their efforts to rescue her from its evil leader.

Daredevil
Whether teaming up with the Man Without Fear or the lawyer named Matt Murdock, Jones has worked with Daredevil several times over the years, the two developing a natural ease with one another despite having very different outlooks on the world. The duo has joined forces to take down Typhoid Mary, get Jones out of legal trouble, and maintain Hornhead’s secret identity when the FBI, Silke, and Kingpin sought to expose him to the world.

Captain Marvel
Back when they first met—teaming up to punch Doctor Octopus right in the goggles—Carol Danvers still called herself Ms. Marvel and Jones still went by Jewel. Over the years, they’ve supported each other professionally and personally. Danvers literally saved Jones’s life after the latter attacked the Avengers while under the sway of Purple Man. While certain recent events have made for a rocky road in this friendship, these two heroes have endured so much in the past, their reconciliation seems inevitable.

The Daily Bugle
A rocky team-up, to be certain, but still one worth noting. Jessica and J. Jonah Jameson, in particular, share an antagonistic—yet oddly respectful—connection after she saved his foster daughter, Mattie Franklin, and helped expose Norman Osborn as The Green Goblin. At the same time, however, she used Jameson’s funds to feed the homeless while pretending to investigate Spider-Man like she’d been hired to do in the first place.

Hellcat
When Hedy Wolfe hired Jones to dig up dirt on her nemesis Patsy Walker, Jessica refused to cooperate and instead let the would-be mark in on the plan. Together, Hellcat and Jones, with an assist from She-Hulk, derailed Wolfe’s plans to blackmail and extort the former Avenger.

The Young Avengers
Functioning in more of a loose mentor role than a true team-up, Jones offered the teen heroes advice, stood up for them against Captain America, and defended them when it appeared that Scarlet Witch, Magneto, and Dr. Doom might destroy the adolescent team.

Hawkeye
Kate Bishop moved to Los Angeles to try her hand as a private investigator—and in the Marvel Universe, that means a collaboration with Jessica Jones must be nigh. And sure enough, Bishop arrived in her office one evening to find Jones  waiting for her. Over the next several days, the pair went on a wild ride together, getting mixed up with a dragon, newly transformed Inhumans, a missing woman, and a movie star.

Luke Cage
One half of the greatest team-up of Jessica’s life, Luke Cage first met Jones during the brief period of time when she called herself Knightress. After utilizing their complimentary skills and personalities to break up a crime ring headed by The Owl, their collaboration grew into a friendship. In time, Jones allowed herself to trust Luke and the two began a committed relationship. Since then, they’ve helped each other take down The Purple Man, survived multiple cataclysmic events, and, most importantly, started a family together with their daughter Danielle.

Witness the latest JJ team-ups in DEFENDERS #9, by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez, on January 17!

Brace for Killgrave's Marvel Legacy impact with Brian Michael Bendis!

The life of Jessica Jones takes on a purple hue with Marvel Legacy.

Now a loving wife and mother, Jessica has carved out a relatively peaceful existence for herself…but on October 4, writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos reanimate her greatest fear as The Purple Man returns in JESSICA JONES #13!

To get a grasp on the situation, we spoke to Brian about the revival of this living nightmare.

Marvel.com: The Purple Man played a major role in your series ALIAS—can you talk about the evolution of the character as you got to know him?

Brian Michael Bendis: Like everyone else, I read him in certain issues of DAREDEVIL, but I connected most to a MARVEL TEAM-UP ANNUAL by Frank Miller and Herb Trimpe. It’s a lesser work by those masters, but it stars Luke Cage and Iron Fist and Spider-Man and they’re fighting The Purple Man. My young mind read this and I got struck by the idea that he had the most terrifying power of anybody in the Marvel Universe—that he could take over someone’s life like that definitely felt horrifying. And seeing him do that to a hero—with no one even noticing the hero had disappeared—became the scariest story I could think of at the time.

Marvel.com: What are Killgrave’s motives for coming back into her life now? 

Brian Michael Bendis: That’s the thing. This guy doesn’t have the same moral code as the rest of us. He lives in a different reality because the concept of power and responsibility mean the opposite to him than they do for the heroes. So finding his motivation will take a couple of issues because it’s so dense and complicated. Jessica Jones finds herself in the perfect place to figure him out…but will she be in the perfect place to stop him?

Marvel.com: How has The Purple Man changed since we last saw him come up against Jessica?

Brian Michael Bendis: He’s had other stories happen to him. Other things have happened to him since ALIAS. And all of that will be reflected in the new story.

Marvel.com: What kind of threat does he pose to Jessica’s role as a wife and mother? 

Brian Michael Bendis: Complete. Everything. This will be a nuclear hurricane right in the face of the life that she has built for herself.

Marvel.com: How do you go about making Killgrave’s return traumatic and scary, not just for Jessica, but for the reader as well?

Brian Michael Bendis: Jessica actually describes this in the story. This will be scarier because the first time this happened to Jessica she didn’t know anything. She did not know The Purple Man or what he did to her. Now she knows. And when you add a child and a husband, it’s the scariest thing you could think of. It’s the scariest thing I could think of.

Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos present JESSICA JONES #13 on October 4!
