Jessica's adopted sister, Patricia Walker, goes by the nickname "Trish" in TV series. Trish is a  former child star trying to escape the baggage of her past, and covers up her identity with this nickname. If you've read the comics, however, you know that "Trish" also goes by Patsy Walker, and is the alter-ego of the feline-esque superhero, Hellcat.

Did you catch the name of the officer that uncuffs Jessica Jones and lets her go before turning a gun on Detective Clemons?

Our introduction to Jessica Jones and her life as a detective/alcoholic/superhero is ripped straight from the pages of the comic book. An almost shot-for-shot, word-for-word scene shows Jessica throwing a disgruntled customer through her door. This sets the tone perfectly for both the comic and the show, and the director and producers did a great job of capturing those feelings onscreen.

When Jessica toys with the idea of becoming a full-time superhero, it's a family affair. Her adopted sister, Trish, designs a costume and comes up with the superhero alias "Jewel." Although Jessica dismisses the code name as "a stripper name" on the TV show, she actually spends some time using the costume and name in the comic books. She even works with the Avengers on a few occasions.

As part of a long tradition, Stan Lee makes a cameo in pretty much every Marvel movie. So far, he hasn't quite taken the time to show up in any of the TV shows, but he did supply a photo of himself that has been used in the background of both Daredevil and Jessica Jones.

When Luke Cage comes back into Jessica's life, he claims it's strictly business; he needs to hire a private investigator, and she's just started her brand-new gig. Jessica suggests that he get in contact with "Angela Del Toro," because she has reasonable rates. Avid comic book fans know, however, that Angela Del Toro has a lot more than good prices. Del Toro is actually White Tiger; another superhero in the Marvel universe that uses Jade tiger amulets to defeat bad guys.
