Luke Cage, also known as Power Man, was a product of his time. The character was originally created as a response to the popularity of Blaxpolitation films in the 1970s. Since then he’s floated around, carrying his own comic book at times and taking part in team-up books at others. He joined the Marvel Netflix Universe as part of the cast of Jessica Jones, giving us a look at what he can do and how he responds to the absurd situations superheroes end up in.

With his own show, though, Cage is one again a product of the time in which he exists.
