a brief history of Luke Cage in the comics
Tomorrow, Netflix will release the entire first season of Marvel's Luke Cage, a TV show I've pretty much been waiting for since 1981. I became a fan of Luke Cage, a.k.a. Power Man, from a crossover between the book he shared with Iron Fist and Daredevil back in late '81. The crossover did what it was designed to do -- get readers of one title to read the other one -- and I became completely hooked on Power Man and Iron Fist

Today on Tor.com, I provide a brief history of Luke Cage in the comics by way of prep for the release of the series on Netflix. Really really really looking forward to it.........

An excerpt:
But Cage was still the coolest cat on the block. This is a guy who flew to Latveria to beat the shit out of Doctor Doom because the armored villain reneged on his fee. This is a guy who, when asked where his partner Iron Fist was, said, “Meditatin’. That’s like suckin’ your toes only not as much fun.” This is a guy who, when informed of all the things that can kill a vampire (crosses, garlic, etc.) when he suddenly finds himself facing one, grumbles, “Brilliant, D.W., you know I never set foot outside my house without a pocket full’a them things!”
