Luke Cage (Netflix) – The Luke Cage series we’ve all been waiting for is finally here and it already sounds pretty good. The latest in the Marvel/Netflix team-up sees Cage – that cute, indestructible bartender Jessica Jones dallied with in her own show – getting his much-deserved time in the spotlight. We get a look at the reluctant hero’s origins and how he handles being a black, bullet-proof superhero in a time when men of color and bullets seem to constantly make the news. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker has already likened his new series to Marvel meets The Wire, so you know it’s going to be good.
