51. Luke Cage
Sweet Christmas! It's Luke Cage!
I've gotta tell you, I'm not a big fan of the updated version. I guess SOME people don't think that 18" yellow lapels and chrome headbands mixed in with the occasional splash of 1970's lingo doesn't ring with today's youth. Well to those people, I just gotta say one thing... YOUR MOMMA!
Listen, I understand that certain characters must be updated once in a while in order to stay relevant. I get it. But please try to keep the essence of the character intact. Luke was inspired, at least partially, by Shaft. SHAFT! You don't get much cooler than that. Use that as your character base and build from there. Ya dig?
Medium: Pen, ink & Chrome, baby!
