This June, Marvel is going back to Harlem with Luke Cage Season 2. The new addition to the lineup boasts the same hard-hitting punches and bulletproof skin as the first season and picks up where things left off right after the climax of The Defenders.
Marvel’s official synopsis for the next season in the Netflix series reads as follows:
“After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.”
If you recall from The Defenders, Misty Knight had a rough go at it, after she got her arm sliced off in a fight with The Hand. No pun intended. It’ll be interesting to see how she rehabilitates and bounces back with her new mechanical arm. If this season of Luke Cage remains true to the comicbook source material, things could really be set up slowly for another superpowered team up in the near future, especially since The Defenders are not confirmed for a second combined season.
But Misty Knight isn’t the only character making an appearance, you can’t forget Danny Rand!
