She's No Damsel In Distress
I mean, Jessica is literally a superhero. But what we like most about her is that she doesn't behave in any sort of expected way just because she is the heroine of her own story, and she especially doesn't let anyone give her the runaround. The first example of this is Hogarth, who is the prime Manhattan lawyer shark. Another significant example is, of course, Kilgrave.
