This new look at Misty Knight in the upcoming sophomore season of ‘Luke Cage‘ is trying to show that this time around, she isn’t a sidekick. In the comics, she is known for having a bionic arm, and now we’ll see it come to fruition on the small screen as well. Simone Missick has proven that she has the acting chops to pull off the street smarts and attitude of everyone’s favorite detective and now she gets to show off what can be done in some proper action sequences as well.

I would not want to be the first villain she lets some aggression out with while using her new appendage. Misty lost her arm near the end of the ‘Defenders’ and thanks to Danny Rand she won’t be one-handed for long. It’ll be interesting to see the dynamic of how exactly this plays out, but with a new villain on the loose that can give a beating that can bring Luke Cage down, our hero is going to need all the help he can get.
Hopefully, Misty still wants to help him out. At the very least, it’ll be fun to see if she’s thankful or annoyed with Rand when they run into one another again this season. If this does end up being Rosario Dawson‘s last outing in the Netflix Marvel shows, I’d love to see the two share some screen time together as well.
Are you looking forward to seeing Misty Knight’s new arm in action in the second season of ‘Luke Cage’? Do you feel that she’ll become even more critical to the story going forward? Share your thoughts below, True Believers!
