Netflix’s decision to cancel Marvel’s Daredevil was a surprise. No one knew it was coming. Not the stars, not Marvel’s executives. Not even the writers, who were already laying out plans for the next chapter of Daredevil’s story. We got a chance to talk with one of the writers who was working on season four, who shared her shock at the show’s demise and why she think it spells doom for the future of The Defenders TV universe.


The Defenders mini-series made its Netflix debut Friday, bringing together Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Iron Fist as Marvel's street-level super team. We assembled Gita Jackson and Mike Fahey to discuss what worked, what didn't, and how horrible Danny Rand is. So horrible.


The New York City of the Marvel universe is teeming with heroes, being home to everyone from Steve Rogers to Peter Parker. With four of those famous New Yorkers teaming up on the small screen in The Defenders, we decided to rank the finest inhabitants of the comic book Big Apple.

It sounds like an insult to say that The Defenders is exactly what you thought it would be, but it isn't. It's a show that's very aware of the expectations put upon it and the problems encountered by the other Marvel Netflix shows, and it knows how to best utilise its cast and its time. In other words, it's great.


We knew it was coming, and here's the first trailer. All of the Netflix heroes - Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist - are in one badass new show called The Defenders.


Until recently it was hard to get your hands on American comics in Europe. If you wanted to read the latest adventures of the X-Men or Superman, you had to import them. European audiences were familiar with superheroes -- but largely through movies and TV. For a lot of older comic fans from Europe this has led to some... eclectic comic tastes. Like Julian Voloj, whose parents immigrated to Germany from Columbia in the '70s. Since the mid-1980s Voloj has been collecting the American comics he could acquire.


Some superheroes' personalities change over time, especially when many creators work on them over decades of publishing history. But this also creates a multiplicity of possible interpretations for these characters, too. Let's see what the most telling moments from Luke Cage's long superhero career actually say about him as a person.


In 2007, Marvel announced Cage!, a satirical new series for Power Man that went back to his days as a pulpy '70s hero by Samurai Jack creator Genndy Tartakovsky. And then it got delayed, and delayed, and delayed. Many never expected it to ever come out. But now, nearly nine years later, it finally will.


By the time that Power Man and Iron Fist #125 came out in the late summer/early fall of 1986, I'd already learned not to trust comic-book covers.
