  • During one of the flashbacks while Trish is trying to convince Jessica to be a hero, she shows her a prototype for a costume. The asymmetrical white suit with blue accent trim and offset diamond design at the waist is exactly what the comic version of Jessica wore as a costumed superhero. Trish also thinks Jessica should go by the codename Jewel, which was Jessica’s superhero name in the comics.


Random Driver: “Hey, get out of the road, you stupid sandwich!”

* * *

Trish: “This is it! This is the one. Look…”
Jessica: “Tell me you’re kidding.”
Trish: “Superheroes wear costumes!”
Jessica: “The only place where anyone is wearing that is trick-or-treating, or as part of some kinky role-playing scenario.”
Trish: “Well, this is just a mock-up. Ultimately, it’s going to be a lightweight, highly durable fabric. Waterproof, flame resistant, and it will hide your identity.”
Jessica: “No.”
Trish: “Well, you can’t keep saving people dressed as a giant hoagie.”

* * *

Trish: “Fine. Be the naked superhero. That can be your alias.”
Jessica: “Better than the name you came up with.”
Trish: “Jewel is a great superhero name!”
Jessica: Jewel is a stripper’s name! A really slutty stripper. And if I wear that thing, you’re going to have to call me ‘Cameltoe’.”
