(Warning - the following contains mild SPOILERS for Marvel and Netflix's Jessica Jones. Proceed with whatever level of caution that suggests is wise...)

Now, Jessica Jones, Marvel and Netflix's latest excursion into streamed superhero awesomeness, may be a lot of things - dark, complex and distinctly terrific among them - but it's very much not a superhero-filled extravaganza of costumes, explosions and comic-book action. Sure, the show has its fair share of fighting, and more than enough superhero-adjacent entertainment to keep any Marvel fan happy - but it does so in a far more subtle way than we've yet seen on screen.

Under the surface, though, there's still a surprising amount of superhero referencing going on. Assorted awesome Easter eggs aside, one of the most intriguing of those teases was the presence of a major Marvel super-villain, right under all of our noses...

Specifically, Nuke - the Daredevil, Captain America and Wolverine bothering super-soldier best known for his stars-and-stripey facial tattoo.

The thing is, though - while the show's enigmatic police officer Will Simpson may well be intended to be the comic-book Nuke (you can read more about exactly why right here), he doesn't actually look all that much like him in the show.

Which, of course, is where everyone's favorite superhero-themed interpreter of celebrity faces, BossLogic, comes in. Thanks to the 'Boss, y'see...

We Can Finally See What a Comic-Book Styled Nuke Would Look Like in Jessica Jones

Yup, that's right - we finally know what Wil 'Will Simpson' Traval would look like kitted out with Nuke's traditional American Flag tattoo, thanks to BossLogic's recent image (created for Specifically, he'd look an awful lot like this:

Which, perhaps unsurprisingly, is AWESOME.

Nicely played, BL. Nicely played...

What do you reckon, though?
