How To Beat The Purple Man, Laura Palmer Style!!

So, we're all talking about Jessica Jones this week (don't worry, no spoilers here).

For some reason, it takes her 13 episodes to deal with Killgrave. Thirteen!!

She probably should have gone to Daredevil for advice, because he knew how to wrap up this case much faster. With just one hour of preparation!

So when Zebediah Killgrave (ahem, not "Kilgrave," silly Netflix show) is ready for his final confrontation with DD...

...Matt finishes the job, lickety split:

See, was that so hard?

Just cover the dude in plastic wrap!! Finish that storyline in 1 episode, tops!! Now Daredevil has plenty of time left in the season for pontificating portentously with priests, stopping season-long seedy real estate deals, and opining how important Hell's Kitchen is to anyone who will listen. (I kid because I love).

I can't wait for the Luke Cage series, which will doubtless devote 13 entire episodes to taking down, oh, I don't know, Gideon Mace? Or Black Mariah!!

I'm sure they could come up with some reason it would take 13 entire episodes to deal with her...

Oh, and the title of this post?

How soon the classics are forgotten...

From Daredevil #4 (1964). Hero For Hire #5 is from 1973.

Say, isn't the second line in this post a spoiler? Now we know she spends the entire season dealing with one guy. Hmm.
