Now, with Avengers: Age of Ultron already in theaters - and most likely having been seen more than once by the majority of us - and Daredevil already having been, binge-watched, and gone, you might think that 2015's level of Marvel superhero-related awesomeness has already peaked.

Now, for one thing, Ant-Man is still set to hit our screens - and there's good reason to believe we could well be set to pull off a similar level of surprise awesomeness to last year's Guardians of the Galaxy - but there's another giant dose of Marvel - close to thirteen hours worth, to be precise - coming our way too: Netflix's A.K.A. Jessica Jones.

Which, from the sounds of two newly released synopses, may just be set to be even better than we could have hoped...

OK, fine - we probably should have figured...
OK, fine - we probably should have figured...

First, Amazon released a brief synopsis as part of a listing for a new, Jessica Jones series-related book:

"Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of PTSD, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check."

And then Netflix joined in the fun, adding an even briefer synopsis to its holding page for the series:

Which, put together, tell us four key things about the show:

First up:

It's Going to Be Super-Faithful to the Comics

Or, at least, a whole lot more faithful than we might have assumed - there's a whole lot of Jessica's on-page adventures crammed into those brief synopses...

David Tennant's Purple Man Has a History With Jessica

No spoilers for anyone who hasn't read the comics, but Jessica's past coming back to haunt her? Odds are that involves The Purple Man...

We WILL Get to See Jessica as a Superhero

Sure, it'll probably be brief, but there's a good chance we're going to see Jessica's past superhero identity in well as it going wrong enough to scare her away from the lifestyle altogether.

And, crucially:

Jessica's Going to Kick Ass

I mean, seriously: "a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen"? What about that doesn't sound awesome?

What do you think, though?
