A change from our previous candidates, part 5's instalment of our anti-hero series sees our first female into the category, with the Netflix original series Jessica Jones.
Following a tragic end to her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City. The title character is played Krysten Ritter who has previously had roles in Veronica Mars and Don't Trust the B***** in Apt 23 and she brings this character to life. Her tough exterior makes her heroic acts all the more moving, especially when you learn how she became the way she is which is in no small part due to the actions of her own super villain, Kilgrave, played by former Doctor, David Tennant. Jessica Jones sets the standard for female anti-heroes in the modern era and I dare say even gives some of the male candidates a run for their money.
That's it for Part 5, stay posted for Part 6 TTFN :)
