270 – Essential Luke Cage: Power Man

Essential Luke Cage, Power Man

Our Netflix prep series rolls on with “Luke Cage: Power Man” essentials. We read issues 48-53, where Luke Cage meets Iron Fist for the first time. We talk about all the surprisingly complex themes that come up: what makes vigilantes righteous, the importance of Harlem as a setting, Misty Knight’s murderous intent, and more. Plus: we talk about dirndl shopping and boobs.
