Time for Jessica Jones to be in the game

Hey Kabam i think its time we get her as a playable character. I think she would be awesome. All the other defenders are in.
Some real nice synergies could be created for the whole team

    For sure, I guess some Marvel/Netflix friction at the time made them prioritize other champs over making Jessica Jones playable but I already could imagine a good set of abilities for her that would make her function as a tank (well timed blocks and block charging to add and enhance damage resistance charges as a Science | Defensive: Tank type and specials to convert them to enhanced attack power as I described here)

    Misty Knight would also be a good addition to give us at least a team of 5 Defenders (if we're not counting Punisher and Elektra, the OG DD or Kingpin) but for sure Jess's character is already designed and was added to the game as a story element/non-playable character.

    I just worry that they'd skip over this month and then wouldn't be compelled to add her again. Obviously with her season 3 actually coming out during their slate covering Sue Richards and Namor, I suspect they don't intend to in June. They don't often release more than 2 champs in regular months.

    They aren't going to add the Netflix Defenders at this stage; which is a shame.

    I wouldn't vote for Jessica Jones, though - they could have had far more fun seeing what Colleen Wing could do with the Iron Fist...

    Jessica Jones is a pretty bland character
    Wouldn’t really want her in the game

    I can see why she could be considered bland so I'm not disputing that at all (certain champs aren't for everybody and the Netflix version of her isn't high action); I merely think she'd be worth adding because of the possibilities with her powers. A chance to use new mechanisms to achieve variations on some of the abilities already in the game (high damage reducing champs like Gwenpool, Luke Cage & Killmonger) without needing to build that champ from scratch (since they've already made the character model).

    My thoughts were to
    • Use well-timed blocks to set up passive protective charges
    • Use block charging to make them stronger over time
    • Use specials to consume some to boost attack for a period of time
    • Otherwise when hit, each is consumed per hit taken reducing damage taken by some percentage depending on how many charges (up to 3 sets of 5) are amped up (anywhere between 9% and 99%)
    She's also got synergy potential (e.g. with direct ties to Luke, P.I. role like Howard) that the game team can use to spruce others up even more. I went over them in more detail here and covered ability ideas for Colleen Wing too, whose Netflix version I'd like to see added with Misty Knight's comic-based version. Disregard how they were portrayed in the Iron Fist series @Ghosty64, this is all about the abilities and inter-connectivity (think about how bland Iron Fist is, but he predates the show as a cool, classic, kung-fu character that inspired 2 versions in-game - these transcend any underwhelming short-lived TV depictions - also, Medusa: awesome in-game, The Inhumans: not-so-awesome in their show)

    it would be great to have such an iconic character with a rich tapestry of source material to draw from and would surely bring delight to marvel fans everywhere.
  • Hey there, appreciate the suggestions. If you have ideas for new Champions you'd like to see added to the game, be sure to share them in the character wishlist thread.
