Jessica Jones is one of the few female heroes of the Marvel universe, or, to be more precise, an anti-heroine. This article on Jessica Jones (2015–present) deals with Jessica’s post-traumatic stress disorder and her status as a victim by putting aside the obvious gender issues. Powerlessness and self-empowerment shall be discussed as an ineluctable condition of human life on the one hand (Sartre) and a political allegory of omnipresent surveillance on the other hand (Foucault) – without denying that personal responsibility remains an important issue in the series. It will especially be analysed how film aesthetic means, like camera perspectives, involve the viewers into the aforesaid frightening processes.
