Luke Cage’s impenetrable skin and super strength make him one of the most powerful brawlers in Marvel’s comics universe, but years of throwing himself at villains has led to a devastating problem for the hero — as well as one of his most interesting storylines yet.
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.
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.
