Luke Cage

‘Luke Cage’ was such a smash hit for Netflix that the weekend when season one premiered, so many people streamed it that it crashed their servers.  Since then, Mike Colter and his allies have appeared in ‘The Defenders’ which helped draw the four original Marvel Netflix programs together.  In ‘The Defenders’ Luke met and bonded with the slightly clueless Danny Rand, a.k.a. ‘Iron Fist’, and while the ‘Iron Fist’ series was not well-received, viewers were still excited by the prospect of the ‘Heroes For Hire’ joining forces and hopefully becoming a full-time duo.  We do know that Finn Jones’ Danny appears in ‘Luke’ Season Two, so that idea is inching closer to a reality, but there is another team-up from the comics that this season also delivers.

In the newest preview clip from ‘Luke’ Season Two, we see Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) and Misty Knight (Simone Missick) are seen trying to have a drink at a bar when they run into trouble.  In the comics, Colleen and Misty are known as the Daughters of the Dragon and they actually took over the ‘Heroes For Hire’ title for a while.  Luke and Danny may be the more famous pairing, but Colleen and Misty are also fan favorites.

Here we see the two ladies giving a beat down to an entire bar full of thugs and the real kicker is that Misty does so with only one arm!  You can check out this latest clip below:



This scene obviously occurs early in the season, maybe even in the first episode.  We know that at some point this season, Misty will receive a new robotic arm to replace the one she lost in ‘The Defenders’.  There may even be some romantic shuffling since, in the comics, Misty has always been Danny’s love interest not Colleen.  Will that drive a wedge between these newly minted friends?  Not to mention that Luke, who is currently with Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), eventually winds up Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter).

We’ll just have to keep watching to find out!

‘Luke Cage’ season two will be available to stream in its entirety on June 22, 2018.
