Jessica Jones and Casey Jones



I enjoyed Jessica Jones on Netflix, especially the first season.  I also got a real kick out of her interaction with the other heroes on Defenders.  Krysten Ritter did a great job in interpreting the character.  The second and third seasons weren't as strong, although I did enjoy Patsy Walker's transition into a vigilante of her own - until the resolution of that story arc which I would have liked to have seen present her in a more positive light.

Who is this Casey Jones? It's clearly not Air Wave's 1980s villain.

Ally to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

OK. I haven't read many of the TMNTs.

I was pleased to see Ross finally match them with the Teen Titans earlier this year: that seemed like a natural match. Another match that I'm surprised we haven't seen is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with Professor X or Magneto.

Would Martian Manhunter count for this family reunion J'onn J'onzz and John Jones?

Yes, and Jughead, and probably Indiana and Davy.

P.S. I still like the idea of J'Onn J'Onzz and the wicked Witch of the West.

How about Martian Manhunter and Sherlock Holmes? Yes, I'll help investigate, but would you please stop smoking that pipe?

@Anon836: Maybe TMNT vs. Davy Jones (Pirates of the Caribbean).

Biker Mice from Mars and Ethel "Effie" Munyon (Piranha Club), whose cooking might have been so liked by the Plutarkians that they set up shop in Chicago instead or New York City (where "Effie"'s Bayonne, NJ borders).

So now we have artist Casey Jones and character Casey Jones. When I click on name I get a list of books without character "Casey Jones" Will we get a team up of the two Casey Joneses?

I almost hate to say it. But, whichever artist did your capture of Jessica Jones made her look more like the Dark Horse version of Willow Rosenberg. :-(

OK, so with Jessica and Casey, we've added John, Jughead, Indy, and Davy... how about Martha Jones (Doctor Who)?

On a related note (pun not intended but still appreciated), can we come up with a quintet of heroes with the last name Jackson?

About the OP: I actually thought Patsy ended in a reasonably positive light: she realized that she screwed up, and willingly accepted the consequences, going quietly to the Raft. If I had any influence at all with Kevin Feige, I'd lobby to have her included in a future Thunderbolts film (alongside Cottonmouth, Shocker, and Black Widow II, among others).

Now I want to see a story where the Ninja Turtles try to Avoid the Noid! (Do you remember the Noid from Domino's Pizza commercials in the 80s? He even had a video game for the NES :P)

great cover, Ross....
i posed such a teaming of all the various Joneses some time ago....
Jessica, Henry Jr.(Indiana was the dog's name), Casey, Fred (from the Scooby gang), John ( or J'onn in Martian), Angelica, Davey (from Monkees fame), Jughead and David Jones (aka Bowie, singer).....
as per your usual another cool cover....
thank you for all you do, Ross...

That's quite a list. I couldn't keep up with them all.

The artist on Jessica is her co-creator Michael Gaydos

Move over Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor! Here comes Tony Stark AND Uncle Scrooge "McDuck of Duckburg" since it was made clear that D-I-s-n-e-y has made over 7 BILLION DOLLARS so far in 2019.
Will W.B. EVER get its act together with DC movies????????? Holy Crisis!
Imagine what Disney can buy these days. Disneyland on the moon? Why not?!?

I know. I know.

Speaking of Disney; how about Casey Jones of TMNT vs. Casey Jones the railroad engineer?

@BigMike20X6: How about the Noid meets the Whammy (Press Your Luck); they both sport the color red in their looks.

And that, Cary, is the person on whom Air Wave's villain was based. See above!

Carycomic said...

I'm talking about the actual Disney version, though. From the animted short sung/narrated by Jerry Colonnna.

Don't try keeping up with the Joneses, even Rick couldn't do it.

Carycomic said...

How about Snuffy Smith's family feuding with the Joneses?

Hello room service, send up a room said...

Too late. They already cancelled Smith & Jones on the telly.
