Luke Cage (Power Man) was one of my favorite childhood comic book characters right next to The Punisher, between the two I collected a good amount of comics. I got the Power Man and Iron Fist comics from a book store that was going out of business. I don’t think they new the value of the old comics they had because they were selling them for what it said on the cover and some of the old comics they had like Fantastic Four were 25 cent. Either way I got everything I could I was already into Cage but didn’t know too much about the Power Man and Iron Fist comics. So I got to a better understanding of the character and it was cool to see how his style evolves with the time and what is going on the current era.
To me he was the Marvel’s version of a Black Superman, his skin was bulletproof, and had super human strength that he got from an scientific experiment that only he could survive. A lot of people can relate to the character after going to prison for a crime he didn’t commit he gets out and wants to change his life for the positive and starts a hero for hire business. Standing up for those who can’t and trying to change the neighborhood for the better.
This is why I am interested and also glad that Netfilx is giving Cage his own show starting September 30th I can’t wait to see what they are going to do with the story and what direction they are going to go with the character. The official trailer below gives us a sneak look at what to expect and next to 50 Cent’s Power it is definitely a must see.
And you got to check out the behind the scenes Street Level Hero music teaser that features the talents of Method Man and ASAP Ferg as they break down and talk about how that came up with the music that will play a part in the televison series.
