Wait. She drew blood when she scratched Luke Cage. How did she draw blood when she scratched Luke Cage?

White Tiger is magic-based so maybe that allows her claws to bypass his physical toughness. Otherwise it's an artist error.

This book has been excellent, and Valerio Schiti is doing a great job at staying within Land's style. Took me a few panels to even realize it was a different artist. In a day when artist changes are so frequent and noticeable, this is a nice surprise.

White Tiger's powers are magic based. I assume that Cage's skin doesn't protect from magic effects.

Nice.

Interesting. I avoided this book completely at first for two reasons: Greg Land and S***head Spider-Man. Now both seem to be history, so maybe this will be worth a second look.

really dont get the greg land hate. yall lost. this continues to be the best book put out by marvel, hope with spidey gone and based on last issue that jessica will be joining the team, its ok to just have her in the book but want to see her in the thick of things

@medulaoblaganda: ive checked the pages on her, Angela and Hector and it doesnt say what the claws are made of. Cage has shrugged off bullets, knives and explosions, so unless the claws are made out of adamantium or they have 'magical properties' (which is a lame copout IMO) i dont see her leaving marks on him

@kid_apollo: As the understudy of Tigra, Ava possesses an exceptional combat prowess, which is complimented by the claws built into gloves of her costume. she has a super natural powers. her claws her super natural. amulets of power gives her powers.

AbilitiesSuperhuman martial arts skills and slightly superhuman physical attributes via mystical amulets
Sharp claws

@medulaoblaganda: yah I read the pages about all three white tigers and your explanation doesn't explain what her claws are made of at all. the only explanation anyone has come up with is magic/magically enhance claws
