Here! Here!

This is a really underrated book, and I can't wait to see what happens with Luke's dad.

I don't like when artist tuck Luke's shirt in. It makes him look old, when he's only in his early 30s.

Anyway, I would really like to see him in an updated costume, using the Power Man name. I like how commercial it sounds, and how it feels like a natural evolution in a world in which the power structure has changed since the arrival of superhumans.

In addition, I think it would be cool to see a black hero in the MCU with a traditional hero costume that actually looks cool. Falcon comes close but isn't there. War Machine is too derivative to me. And Deathlok looks kinda lame IMO.

Yaaay more Greg Land traced plagiarized "art" and awkward porn-y faces!

Just as I've always suspected.....

Luke Cage's father is Shaft.

That made 0 sense.

How does it make zero sense? Greg Land traces almost all of his art off of photographs. He also uses a ton of porn pictures for the female characters, the guy is a hack.

@captain13: I agree, he should have the name Power Man, and should consider getting a more traditional costume. As I'm sure you can tell, superhero names are a big deal to me.

Al Ewing said Luke was 36.

@daredevil21134:

Might be repetitive but it's beautiful art and i ment the porn thing.

Blue Marvel? okay, this could be good. I just wish Land could make his female characters different by more than just skin colouring (even then, not dark enough). It's hard for me to look at Monica Rambeau and see Jean/Psylocke/Pixie/Dazzler/Storm/Emma instead. This new female character appears to be another victim lost to LandLadyLayering.
