I’ve enjoyed a number of iterations of Luke Cage over the last fifteen years: the Azzarello/Corben Max series; a lover, friend, and voice of reason to Jessica Jones in Alias; a husband and father in the Pulse and New Avengers; heading the Thunderbolts as the sole hero trying to keep the villains on a leash. But this may be my favorite version of him yet. Luke Cage as a dad who doesn’t want any trouble, helping his forever friend Iron Fist and watching his potty mouth, is such a teddy bear of a man that I have fallen in love with the poor guy.

I’m glad I took a chance on this series. I wasn’t planning to buy it but saw a kind word about it on Twitter, and so far it’s paying unlimited dividends.
