AKA Jessica Jones has added another character to its cast. Rachael Taylor, of Transformers, has joined as Trish Walker. The official announcement says,
“After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City. Trish is a syndicated radio talk show host, former model and child TV star known to her adoring fans as ‘Patsy’ Walker. As Jessica Jones’ closest friend, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica’s career. The character of Patricia Walker has roots dating back to 1944 with her first appearance in MISS AMERICA MAGAZINE #2, and in the comics Walker donned the super hero identity of Hellcat in 1976.”
Hellcat has gone through ups and downs in her career, at time being a member of the Defenders while other times marrying the “Son of Satan”. Her inclusion in the series is interesting and I wonder what route they will be taking with her. For now, only time will tell.
