The first time we saw him, Luke Cage was a reluctant hero, someone who just happened to have superpowers and never asked for it. He tried not to get involved, but when the citizens of Harlem were in trouble, he saw little other choice.
Now as the second season begins, we get a new Luke. He’s fully embraced his destiny. He’s bold, outspoken, and making macho videos where he steps out of a burning bus, then shakes off the flames like they were nothing. Luke is ready to take on anything…which means he’s just in time to meet his true match!
As you’ll see in the trailer below, when Luke meets Bushmaster he’s thrown against the concrete. This dude doesn’t need performance enhancers, powerful armor or special Luke-piercing bullets to make waste of him. It’s the first time Luke has truly experienced what it must be like for someone on the other end of his fist. How did Bushmaster get so powerful, and if Luke can’t stop him, who can? Maybe some help from Detective Misty Knight will make the difference, now that she’s got a supercool bionic arm. Iron Fist will also be stopping by, but….yeah, like that twerp can do anything.
Luke Cage Season 2 begins June 22 on Netflix.
