Using Daredevil season 3 as an example, I noticed a pattern in these Netflix Marvel shows. Their first seasons are extremely personal to the hero.
1) Matt goes up against his polar opposite and struggles to establish his vigilante identity
2) Jessica goes up against her abuser
3) Luke goes up against his former best friend / brother / the man who ruined his life
4) Danny goes up against the man who murdered his parents
Their second seasons, however, take on a more impersonal approach. While they are still a significant factor in the story, the plot is less about them and more about the supporting cast.
1) DD season 2 is more about Frank and Elektra.
2) JJ season 2 is arguably more about Jeri, Trish and Malcolm. You can say JJ 2 is more about Jessica reacting to the stuff around her, versus the first season where she was actively chasing down Kilgrave.
3) LC season 2 is more about Bushmaster and Mariah’s gang war.
4) IF season 2, by season’s end, was more about Colleen and Davos’ fight over the Fist. Plus, Mary Walker and Ward Meachum.
With DD season 3 coming out, it looks like the show is going back to its roots and making Matt the center of attention. All the teasers have been about him and his descent to darkness and the only significant new character that’s been announced (sorta) is Bullseye. If this is a trend, then we can expect the other three shows to follow suit.
Although you can probably already guess that by how the other seasons ended. JJ 2 hinted at Jessica possibly having a normal life with Oscar and being able to move on from her tragedies. LC 2 hinted at a dark story arc for Luke as he’s now Harlem’s boss. And IF 2 hinted at Danny going after Orson Randall.
Last note, don’t think I forgot about Frank Castle. Since he’s the last one to have a second season, if his show follows suit, his season will be more about the supporting cast than him. Honestly, by how season one ended, I can live with that. He finally got his revenge and has seemingly “moved on” from being the Punisher. The only kind of story I can see him having in season two is for someone to force him back into the game.
I decided to compile a list of LGBT characters from Marvel mostly just for fun. If I missed a character, feel free to reblog with the character I missed! If you guys want one from DC, let me know and I’ll make one. If nobody cares enough…then I won’t! lol
I tried my best to stick with characters that are confirmed to be cannon. Not trying to invalidate any head cannons, but I am focusing on the cannon which is what I’ll be listing. Sometimes there are some debate over certain characters, if you disagree with a character I apologize I’m doing my best.
