The best villains in comics are often the ones that get in a hero’s head. It just so happens that for Jessica Jones, that’s a bit more literal than for others. As we approach the premiere of Jessica Jones on Netflix this week, they’ve released two super-creepy clips featuring David Tennant’s Kilgrave, aka the Purple Man.

In the first clip above, we see Kilgrave use his mind-control power to take advantage of an unsuspecting family. And he kinda really doesn’t like kids. And in the clip below, we see just how handy mind-control powers can be when playing cards.

What do you think of David Tennant on Jessica Jones so far, and who else will be joining me in a marathon this weekend? Jessica Jones arrives on Netflix this FRIDAY the 20th!
