Netflix’s newest Marvel superhero has one major skill on his side: He’s basically unkillable. Luke Cage isn’t just tough, he’s notoriously so, thanks to superhuman strength (always a good thing to have in a superhero), unbreakable skin (cool regardless of your superhero status) and an accelerated ability to heal that rivals even Wolverine. You can’t kill Luke Cage. You can’t even really hurt him.
That’s exactly what the newest poster from Netflix is showing off — in admirably understated terms — as Mike Colter’s Cage stands tall, secure and clearly uninjured amidst a generous dash of bullet holes. His shirt might need a few stitches, but Cage? He’s totally fine as is.
The new Netflix series expands out on the world of Luke Cage, who we previously met on “Jessica Jones,” as he uses his super-talents to fight crime in New York City. A tough, gritty hero that speaks to the often very serious nature of the Marvel series that currently play out on Netflix — including “Daredevil” — Cage just might be the MCU’s next great superhero. He’s certainly tough enough for the job.
