We’ve been preparing for The Defenders since it was first announced: the shared universe of grungy New York superheroes who are finally meeting in order to mete out justice. And the recipient of their powered alias daredevil fists is Alexandra, played by Sigourney Weaver.

Until now, we didn’t know much about Alexandra, other than the fact that she’s a villain so villainous that it requires a team effort to take her down. But in this clip, we finally get to see her in action.

She’s calm. She’s decisive. She knows exactly what she wants. And she’s made the crime boss Madame Gao her errand girl.

That’s some serious villainy. Check it out.
