Teenager Malcolm Powder is the last thing that super powered private eye Jessica Jones wants in her life. He’s a fan, which makes him a major annoyance. But in Jones’s line of work, anyone—even Malcolm—can turn out to be a valuable resource.
Growing up in New York City, Malcolm Powder was not particularly impressed with the various Super Heroes who have become so prominent there over the years—not even after he got to see the God of Thunder, Thor, up close. But for Malcolm, private investigator Jessica Jones was different. For one thing, he admired the fact that Jones, who had been the Super Hero Jewel for a short time many years prior, no longer wore a costume. He read about Jones extensively on the internet, and was so taken with her that, at the age of seventeen, he made a pilgrimage to her office to meet her. While Jones was in the bathroom and unaware of his presence, Malcolm took it upon himself to answer her phone when a call came in. Jones was not amused and sent him on his way.
