Marvel superheroes are known for their versatility. Whether it is their personality, attitude or the methods in dealing with the enemy, each of them has his own distinctive style.

Now, it seems Marvel is going to add one more trait to it by challenging sexual stereotypes in its upcoming Netflix series "Jessica Jones."

The original Marvel series based on the superhero character of the same name follows the story of Jessica Jones, a superhero who now works as a personal investigator. Though Jessica is a sex symbol like most of the Marvel women, she has her own unique personality as she is also a sexual aggressor.

A surprise screening of the show's pilot episode was shown at New York Comic Con this year where Jessica was depicted enjoying aggressive sex.

Abraham Riesman of Vulture said that the scene starts with Jessica walking into a bar and hitting on a character named Luke Cage (who is soon to get his own Netflix original series). He accuses her of flirting. She says she doesn't flirt, she just gets what she wants. He asks, "What do you want?"

In the next scene, Jessica is shown to be in Luke's bedroom with a concentrated and fervent face.

Riesman said, "It's a scene where Jessica is in total control of her sexuality," adding, "it's the way real-life grownups have sex, not the way neutered TV superheroes do."

Alternet has reported that besides Jessica's love of vigorous sex, the show will also introduce a lesbian character for the first time in a Marvel series. The character will be played by Carrie-Anne Moss, who is all set to play Jeri Hogarth, an influential lawyer and Jessica's employer.

However, it is not the first time that Marvel has introduced people with different sexual orientation to its audiences.

Variety has reported that in the latest episode of "Agents of SHIELD," the character of Joey Gutierrez has been revealed to be gay. Also, in a Blu-Ray-only shot, the character of Sam Rockwell from "Iron Man 2" was depicted to be in a relationship with a man while he was in prison.

The pilot episode also shows the theme of rape and its horrible consequences. Riesman revealed that in the pilot, two of the characters from the show learnt that both of them were raped by the same man.

"The mere fact that Jessica Jones is even talking about rape and PTSD puts it miles ahead of its peers in Marvel's film and television lineup," he said.

It is still unclear that how the show is going to develop with such sensitive themes and topics. However it is going to be one of the darkest shows Marvel ever produced for sure.

"Jessica Jones" will premiere on Netflix on 20 November, 2015.
