The Marvel Cinematic Universe incarnation of the Purple Man (primarily referred to as Kilgrave, occasionally by his real name Kevin Thompson) is the main antagonist of the Netflix hit series Jessica Jones. Given birth with a brain disorder, he was tested on by his parents and gained the ability of mind control in the process. When coming across Jessica Jones, he became obsessed with her until Jones had broken free from his power, prompting Thompson to kill her.

He is portrayed by well-acclaimed actor David Tennant, who also portrays Barty Crouch Jr. and voiced Wilf.
