  • In "AKA I Want Your Cray Cray", Jessica Jones reveals her middle name is "Campbell" and that this was her mother's maiden name. This is a reference to the Marvel Prime Jessica Jones whose original surname was "Campbell" before being adopted by the Jones family.[5]
  • Alisa is an expert in mathematics and was considered for a tenure-track position at the University of Michigan, which she had to turn down for family reasons.[4]
