Here are ten Marvel ladies ready to leap from the page to the screen
Dakota North - Bridge character in Marvel's Netflix series
Like Nick Fury in the early Marvel movies, Marvel will need some sort of narrative glue holding "Daredevil," "Iron Fist," "Luke Cage" and "AKA Jessica Jones" together when all four series hit Netflix. Private detective Dakota North can be exactly that. Though not strictly a "superhero," Dakota is a tough as nails, old school noir detective in a world of costumed vigilantes and super powers. She could act as a bridge between the four series, allowing elements from one series to grab a foothold in another. She is also a fascinating woman of action in her own right, a capable detective and street fighter who can hold her own beside Cage or Murdock. Wouldn't it be cool if North is the first character to utter the word "Defenders," or serve as the impetus for Marvel Studios; second gathering of heroes?
