Based on Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos' Alias comics run, the Marvel universe tale is focused on Jones, a woman still picking up the pieces after a short-lived stint as a superhero. Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after using her powers (super strength, amongst others), she decides to leave the life behind. But she doesn’t entirely forsake her past: she opens up a New York detective agency, which tackles cases for both ordinary people and superheroes.
Melissa Rosenberg has been running the show on this one, which also features Mike Colter as Luke Cage (who is starting work on his own show now) David Tennant as Zebediah Kilgrave AKA “The Purple Man”, with the ability to control minds and a yen for psychopathic behaviour, plus Rachael Taylor, Carrie-Anne Moss, Erin Moriarty, Eka Darville and Wil Traval. Rosario Dawson will also appear as Claire Temple to offer some connective tissue between the shows.
We have our fingers crossed for this one – hopefully it’ll continues the high standards set by Daredevil and provides a different angle on superhero stories.
