Jessica Jones #16

After her attempt to kill (and then beat-up) the Purple Man failed, Jessica Jones #16 picks up the story with Kilgrave in control of Carol Danvers (and the surrounding mob) and wanting very much to sit down for a conversation with his favorite human being.

Believing her end has arrived, Jessica doesn't hold back with what she thinks of the villain who takes sadistic pleasure in controlling others for his own amusement. And when Kilgrave becomes philosophical about his role on Earth, it's all our intrepid P.I. can do not to lose her shit.

The conclusion of the comic picks up a thread from Netflix's television show that was toyed with momentarily but quickly thrown away in favor of pitting the pair against each other. Could the Purple Man, under Jessica's influence, be a force for good in the world? I guess we're about to see. As for me? Let's just say I wouldn't bet against this becoming another Jessica Jones-sized shitstorm before all is said and done. Worth a look.
