The latest series in the Marvel and Netflix partnerships has released its debut date, Luke Cage will debut its full season on September 30th. Luke Cage is just one part of the ultimate partnership that is leading up to The Defenders mini-series which includes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist.
Luke Cage possesses the power of unbreakable skin and super human strength a result of an experiment gone bad. While imprisoned for a crime he did not commit he was recruited by research scientist Dr. Noah Burstein who experimented on him in the field of cell regeneration it was during this experiment that Cage obtained his powers. He often teams up with fellow superheroe Iron Fist and is married to Jessica Jones.
Cage has already appeared on a Netflix/Marvel show as he has been a part in Jessica Jones where he played a supporting role. In his series we will see him encounter “Cottonmouth” as well as Claire Temple who looks to be the character that will tie most of the Defenders together. Ahead of the release of Luke Cage will be the debut of the second season of Daredevil which premieres on March 18.
