Top 10 Superheroes Who Are Also Jerks
9. JESSICA JONES
Jessica Jones arrived well after the golden, silver, and bronze age of superheroes, and despite some costumed shenanigans in her past, she is mostly known for her foul mouth, heavy drinking and career as a seedy private eye. She’s also a pretty great mother, though criminals probably can’t tell when they’re being punched through brick walls.
As portrayed in the recent Netflix series Jessica Jones, Jessica used to be less of a surly character before her manipulation at the hands of Zebadiah Kilgrave, AKA The Purple Man. This ended her career as a costumed hero and sent her into a spiral of PTSD, as shown during the Alias arc where she can’t seem to go two panels without cussing like a sailor.
She would later recover, start a family and reclaim her costumed identity, cycling through a number of names and personas. Jessica still tries to do good, but for a good portion of her career still wasn’t the type to be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Captain America without some stern (and completely ignored) words being said about her language.
