7 reasons why Luke Cage is undefeated
They don’t call this Marvel superhero ‘Power Man’ for nothing
The trailer for the new Marvel series Luke Cage was released Thursday at Comic-Con 2016 in San Diego and it looks lit. Cage is a member of Marvel’s superhero group called The Defenders.
For those that tune in to the Netflix shows Daredevil and Jessica Jones, this should fit right into your TV show rotation and we’ll see if there will be any crossover.
In honor of the Luke Cage trailer for the new series coming out Sept. 30, check out seven reasons why Cage (aka “Power Man”) is undefeated.
While this is a figure of speech, the man literally has unbreakable skin. Did you see how many bullets he took in the trailer?!

2. Super strength
Good lord, he put in work in just the trailer … and those were just the low-level criminals. Wait until the high-level villains start to try him.
It is gonna be interesting how they gonna bring a physical challenge to Luke Cage considering he has unbreakable skin and super strength

3. Cage survived a scientific experiment that was aimed to kill him.
According to Marvel’s background, Cage got his powers from an experiment that was meant to kill him. After being framed and jailed for planted heroin, Cage was volunteered for an experiment that would enable cell regeneration. One of the prison guards tampered with the controls and tried to kill him. Did it work? Nope. In fact, it actually gave him the strength to escape the prison and head back to New York.
4. NFL ready?
According to Marvel’s database, Luke Cage is 6-foot-6 and 425 pounds. I don’t know about you but I would love to have Cage on my team’s defensive line. That’s an easy perennial Pro Bowl player if I’ve even seen one.
While he is a high-school dropout, Cage taught himself to be capable in hand-to-hand combat and is able to speak several languages.
6. Team player
In the upcoming series The Defenders, the team is made up of Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist. Not much is known about the show, but we do know that the foursome will be opening up many cans of whoop-ass.
7. Cage is bringing swagger to the screen
Few superheroes are black, even fewer get their own TV show. Black superheroes I can name off the top of my head are …
- Luke Cage
- Black Panther
- Static Shock
- The Falcon
- Green Lantern John Stewart
It’s cool to see Cage getting his own show. Especially during a time like this.
Very timely/powerful for Luke Cage – a bulletproof black man – to be getting his own Marvel show this year
