While movies like The Avengers, Ant-Man and the like show the fun side of superheroism — the escape, the power fantasy, the drama — Marvel’s TV shows are becoming the place to really go to get an earthier side of the comic book experience. Daredevil was a fast favorite for me as it took the Marvel universe out of the clouds and brought it down to earth. I don’t need everything to be ultra-gritty and realistic, but that show was a nice change of pace from the movies; it gave the overall Marvel universe another, and much needed, dimension.

Jessica Jones takes things a step further.
