Marvel TV struggled a bit out of the gate with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (fan reaction was mixed, but the ratings were rough), but seemed to find its footing in a big way with the critically-hailed Netflix release of Daredevil. Now, the company is getting ready to take its second streaming swing with Jessica Jones and making big plans for a second season with The Man Without Fear, which makes this the perfect time to catch up with the Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada.

We sat down with the man, himself, at New York Comic Con to discuss the dark, gritty tone of Daredevil, whether we can expect that to continue in Jessica Jones, and Jon Bernthal's turn as The Punisher in Daredevil Season 2. The money quote?

"I am going on the record today to say that he is the best Punisher you have ever seen."
