[We wanted] Jessica to have to deal with a very different kind of villain. If you have a superpowered villain, and a superpowered hero, the rules don’t apply. You can throw that guy across the ocean, whatever you need to do. With a civilian, you can’t just go punching people in the face. There are rules, there are laws… which forces her to really step up in a very pragmatic, grounded way.
