There’s a scene early in this issue where Jessica Jones attacks an alt-universe version of herself, and smashes her head through a toilet bowl. That’s just surreal enough to be brilliant.

There’s an X-Men character who shows up kinda randomly in this issue to serve telepathic purposes. That left a little bit of distaste in my mouth. Instead of doing that, why not just create and use a telepathic variant of Jessica? It would certainly fit with the story. Plus, Jessica Jones as an X-Man? I’d be game to see it.
