See a Problem?

After waking up from a coma, Jessica is taken in by the Jones family, and soon discovers that she has developed super-powers. The story ends with Jessica deciding to become a superhero.

Family members of those murdered by the Purple Man ask Jessica to find evidence of those murders that he never confessed to. During her career as a superhero called Jewel, Jessica encountered the Purple Man at a restaurant. He mind-controlled Jessica for eight months, forcing her to bathe him, watch him have sex with other women, and making her beg for his attention.

One day, in a fit of rage the Purple Man ordered Jessica to go and kill superheroes.

Although the ensuing fight broke the mind-control over her, Jessica was mistaken for a threat by the Avengers and badly beaten. Jean Grey helped Jessica awaken from her resulting coma, and implanted a psychic defense in her mind in case of future encounters with the Purple Man.

After confronting the Purple Man in prison, he escapes and Jessica is forced to deal with him and her past trauma.

Jean Grey triggers Jessica's psychic defense, allowing her to defeat him. In the aftermath of the fight, Jessica tells Scott Lang that she is three months pregnant, and that he is not the father. Later that day, Luke arrives to confess his feelings for her. She tells him that she's pregnant with his child, and the series ends with them about to begin a new chapter of their lives.

The series was collected into a number of trade paperbacks:. The series was also nominated for two Eisner Awards in The name change was needed due to the unrelated ABC series Alias.

Archived from the original on February 6, Retrieved December 17, Brian Michael Bendis. The Initiative Daredevil Daredevil: End of Days Daredevil: Ultimate Comics: Doomsday Ultimate Comics: Very few story arcs in Alias wind up with happy endings; every triumph is tempered by loss, and there is always collateral damage.

At any moment Jones seems in danger of losing herself completely, of letting the weight of her past and the grisly realities of life dragging her down.

It's a war of attrition with Jones, a constant battle to get just one more thing right than she gets wrong. While taking jobs like body-guarding Daredevil Matt Murdock after his identity is revealed to the world and searching for J.

Jonah Jameson's foster daughter, she constantly comes up against situations she shouldn't be able handle. Frequently, she fails -- she doesn't get where she needs to be in time, she doesn't stop more bad things from happening, she completely fails in her relationship with Ant-Man Scott Lang, completely fails to understand her relationship with Hero For Hire Luke Cage, and always seems one step behind the rest of the world. Eventually, Jessica pulls out enough wins to catch up.

Through J.

Jonah Jameson, Bendis says it himself -- peel the onion, keep cutting away at layer after layer until you find the heart of story. At Alias' conclusion, after her final confrontation the Purple Man, the villain who tortured her for several months, Jessica Jones' true heart is laid bare before the reader, and despite all the self-hatred and guilt she's built up through the years, she's able to recover.

Alias, Vol. 3: The Underneath

That's what Alias is really about: Taking the pain others have given you and turning it into something better, making the world a better place in whatever small way possible. So Bendis watches his favorite movies, notices how little dialogue there actually is, and takes the lesson to heart. In real life, it took another decade to sink in. Don't get me wrong: He understands the psychology and motivations of all of his characters, and he's able to write them all with distinct cadences and tendencies.

The problem with that approach is when the volume of word balloons creates disharmony with the pictures, which I think does happen from time to time in Alias. Bendis developed his trademark two-page spread style in books like Jinx and Goldfish , which he drew himself.

You just seem to immerse in it, to linger on every panel, hearing characters' speech without really reading it.

Panels are wasted on slow zooms into expressions that never change a common trait in a lot of Bendis's early books , while phalanxes of balloons clog the page, and in some places you find your eye skipping through a few lines of speech just to get to something else. Throughout the series, though, you can see both creators evolving.

Gaydos's layouts get smoother, his sense of negative space evolves, and his characters become even more natural and expressive. Bendis -- who never lacked in strong plots, surprising twists, and interesting, believable characters -- consistently ratchets up the intensity, sometimes by stripping out words altogether, often to magnificent effect:.

In the final issue of Alias , Bendis included an afterword that explained just why the series was ending: Luke Cage, who had his own MAX series around the same time, was a series regular, but mainstreamers like Captain America and Spider-Man could only get cameos in Alias , and certainly couldn't be seen anywhere near the types of adult activities Jones and Cage ran into namely sex, drugs and ultra-violence.Kinja is in read-only mode.

Just when the story starts picking up pace Bendis chucks in a ridiculously lengthy conversation full of repetitive, redundant dialogue to slow everything down again. Too bad I can't say I care for the art, which I only found to be passable, at best.

Alias (2001 - 2003)

Jessica Jones' relationship with Luke Cage will continue to develop and they will ultimately wed and have a child together. Here there Having compulsively watched every episode of the fantastic Netflix adaptation of Jessica Jones, the obvious thing do do while waiting for season two was to finally read the source material.

Definitely continuing this series. In so many ways, Alias offers a reversal of your typical superhero story, and not in the lazy manner of just having them swear or have sex.
