Jessica Jones

Just had a random thought. Did Kabam ever say why we never got Jessica Jones as a fighter in game even when she was in the files and even in that one event quest like 5 years ago? I'm assuming she wouldn't be that exciting of a character like most of the OG characters have evolved to, but it's just weird that it never happened.

    I think that's the reason -- not too interesting, similar to what we already had.

    I heard that her character plan was to be fairly similar to black widow

    Interesting, I would have guessed more luke cage

    Apparently at the time when she was first created, she was basically was a reskinned version of OG Black Widow and her power set was so generic that I guess it didn't really warrant any serious consideration.

    Now that they've had a few years under their belt, I think there's a way to design the character and make her distinct enough to stand out even if she's not going to be a Beyond god-tier champion, although to be fair, none of the other Defenders fit that bill, so at least it's consistent.

    And why does every new champ need to be beyond God tier? Jessica Jones has alot more powers than was shown in her Netflix show as well. She can fly and other stuff. She has other names like Power Princess etc. They'll figure it out.

    I would love a Jessica Jones + Purple Man month. He seems like he would be a utility heavy champ

    This visual effects heavy game has too many visually boring champions as it is.

    Me personally? I don't care if they're god tier but it's something that always comes up whenever a new champ gets released. Then the forums get four or five threads all saying how underwhelming the new Champion is on damage output and hopes that the rebalance program will give them a bump up.

    May be just for a collection and nostalgic reasons. Other than that, majority of the community wouldn't have interest over her ingame at the moment. May be if MCU did a reboot on Defenders, there is a slight possibility.

    Even if she is launched as a playable character, let her not be an updated version of OG Black Widow

    It's Like Mystique in Mcoc. They can't do her properly in the Moment. So they don't release her now.

    Or she ist to OP, like quake....

    And truth be told, I would rather they take their time to do her justice or just not release her at all then to give us some third rate basic champ

    I would still love to see a playable Jessica Jones someday. The trouble was finding a way to introduce her that does her justice. She's not just super strong, she's a great detective and really good at opening locked doors. Finding a way to translate that to the game isn't easy.

    Maybe someday!

    I feel like between the mechanics of someone like Titania or Luke Cage, even a spider-man, we have the answer.

    She's at heart a science champ and there's definitely been some improvements to the class while adding some signature staples..

    Although she would be unique since her ability to overcome the Purple Man's control would translate in the game as her being immune to reverse controls?

    And if one of the big hurdles is her power set being pretty straightforward in the show, you could always go full comic version and include some other abilities that we never got a chance to see live action.

    wasn't she only immune because of a ton of exposure?

    Give her a key quest like this month a new strong Luke cage synergy with her would be pretty cool. What about black widow scytails also will she be a character u can play at some point?

    I have a feeling special bosses like kang thanos weapon x maestro etc will all be trophy champs. Perhaps.

    What about something like the proximate missions. Doing investigations, each time the opponent does a different action she will get a strength or fury (light, medium, heavy, special 1 2 3) also let her tank a special 3 like cage with a cool down. Will play into her playstyle.

    How are people requesting Jessica Jones when I still really want a Lockjaw…… I know he’s not bipedal so the spacing might get weird, but still.

    @Kabam Miike you ever going to release that other Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange or nah? Even if it's just trophy champs?
  • xlxjack7xlxxlxjack7xlx Posts: 2
    I definitely think she should be in the game as a usable champ. I’m thinking science, small, tank, with some sort kick combo for heavy, leaping punch s1, and a 3 or 4 hit combo for s2. Synergy with all the Netflix folks etc.

    Im glad shes not of the table fully as her mechanics if can get her detective skills into the game she be fun to play it be like some sort of persistent charges or something
  • GmonkeyGmonkey Posts: 2,365 ★★★★★
    Detective skills could be a mechanic that makes her stronger over fights. Something similar to task master or mister fantastic where repeated moves reduces their potency. Lots of interesting potential either at the quest or fight level.

    Yeah there's a way to work it to where it can really up her damage through the fight but the problem is is that our only reference point for detective skills is Misty Knight and not a lot of people are fans of how that worked so we need to kind of start over from scratch of what that could be

    what if she was like a master key who could open any story or side quest gate if you did not have or did not want to bring the specific key / character
