Since Jessica Jones came out on Netflix not too long ago, it has been a major hit and already received the green light for season 2. No big surprises there. One of the main successes in the series was Trish Walker’s relationship with Jessica, and how that contributed to the sort of hero Jessica is, and ultimately was a profound factor in defeating the Purple Man. So it is again, no surprise that fans want more of Trish and are eagerly waiting her arrival as Hellcat.
