Netflix has entered with a bang into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Daredevil and Jessica Jones are riding the new wave of high quality shows hard. Can Luke Cage hold up to them?
There is a big focus on black culture and it’s legacy. It is clearly meant to inspire America’s black community, and even references the police shootings and brutality that have been popping up in media so frequently.
Cast, cinematography and soundtrack are undeniably high quality. Other treats are Misty Knight and Claire Temple, two very strong and very appealing female characters. But what about Luke? Is he just black? Well, yes and no.
