Marvel’s Jessica Jones: The Evolution of Trish Walker Featurette

After three seasons, Trish Walker completes her evolution into a
powerful vigilante. But will she use her new abilities for good, or
will she take it too far? Go behind the scenes with Rachael Taylor as she takes us through her character’s journey.

Walker, who in the comics transforms into the superhero, Hellcat, is a force to be reckoned with. Created by Stuart Little and Ruth Atkinson, Patsy Walker first appeared in Miss America Magazine #2 (Nov. 1944), published by Marvel precursor Timely Comics, and became Hellcat in The Avengers #144 (Feb. 1976).

After growing up in suburban Centerville, graduating high school and marrying high-school sweetheart Robert “Buzz” Baxter, Patsy Walker becomes an assistant to scientist Hank McCoy, the mutant superhero the Beast, who at that time was on hiatus from the X-Men. Estranged from her husband, now a U.S. Air Force colonel, Walker befriends McCoy, and, desiring to become a superhero, accompanied McCoy on an adventure with the superhero team the Avengers. She adopts an ability-enhancing costume that formerly belonged to Greer Grant Nelson, the former masked adventuress the Cat, and Walker takes on the name Hellcat.

Jessica Jones returns for its final season on June 14th, 2019.
