Meet the Cast of Marvel's Luke Cage

     
Marvel's third superhero franchise coming to Netflix has been a long time coming. Luke Cage, sometimes known as Power Man, was one of Marvel's first black superheroes. Created in 1972 in the height of Blacksploitation movies like Shaft and Foxxy Brown, Luke Cage carried a lot of those 70's African American culture cliches, but with the inclusion of talent like Alfre Woodard and Mahershala Ali, hopefully those tropes will be missing from this new series.

Here's a breakdown of the cast.
