In Jessica Jones we discover how Kilgrave's powers really work: It is a virus.

Then why does Jessica not use some kind of helmet or even a whole suit like the CDC ones to avoid being controlled by him?

It seems much easier than creating a vaccine that could not work.

    So the entire world wears these suits?..That's not really practical.

    The point is that he can control anyone so he can threaten innocent people to make sure JJ won't hurt him even if she is immune.

    The headphones prevented her from being able to hear the commands and actually being commanded, not from being susceptible to the virus.

As seen in the show and described in her wikipedia.

She possesses superhuman strength, as well as flight, and is known to block mind control because of her strength.

She is already able to block mind control, so there is no point for her to wear a suit.

Also Killgrave (The purple man) controls other people to do bad things to themselves, and he uses that to manipulate Jessica. As said in the comments, it wouldn't be too easy to make the whole world to wear suits...

  • Thanks for the reply. but obviously I dont try to make a whole world wear a suit. just them to stop him
