I know what a lot of you are already thinking: Comparing these two shows is like apples and oranges. Jessica Jones is more of a neo-noir drama about personal trauma, while Daredevil, despite (arguably) not starring a person with super powers like Jessica Jones does, is clearly a superhero show. However, since both shows are Netflix based expansions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I think they merit comparison, and since this is the internet I can say whatever I want. In this post, I’ll be pitting these two shows against each other in 5 categories, which are “Action”, “Supporting Cast”, “Plot”, “Hero”, and “Villain”. The show to win the most out of these 5 will get the title of “best show” as decreed by this blog, and if the results offend you, welcome to a world full of people with differing opinions.

To honour him, here are 5 of Kilgrave’s greatest moments from the series.
