He does not know how to write any of the characters and just ignores stuff other writers have done

The one thing I wonder about. If they had someone who could tend t this problem with Luke Cage, why couldn't they of gone to that same person to deal with his heard in the first place. I also ind it a bit hard to believe that all these heroes never figured that Osborn would put something on his heart since there was heart surgery being done.

well I guess that's true for Noh-Varr. I've read a few reviews about how bendis doesn't portray him with the same personality he had in his mini.

Please don't kill Cage. First, there aren't enough superheros with families(beside the F4, and those kids are screwed), he need to stay around as a positive role modes. Secondly, Marvel has put most of their black superheroes through Hell. Bishop is a bad guy. Tchalla got crippled. Falcon is Falcon. All I got left is Dr. Voodoo(still don't know how I feel about him), and Cage. KEEP CAGE!

Actually I hate Cage as a character but even more so I hate what Bendis is doing with him.

@Man of Lengend: Dude, you and i talked about this like, YESTERDAY!! Luke Cage won't die in this issue, nor will he die anytime soon! 
 
For those of you that haven't been paying attention, Avenger: The List was the proverbial climax to this storyline! Having recently saved Luke Cage, Clint Barton decided to take matters into his own hands and goes after Osborn, when he is beaten and captured. THIS leading directly into New Avengers Annual, which takes place the morning after the event of Avengers: the List. At the end of the annual, we see Luke Cage up and walking about (all be it on a cane). 
 
However, when the List was release, the New Avengers had JUST begun fighting the "The Hood's" goons, and had just been de-powered, which caused Cage's heart attack (issue 57). Osborn didn't take Luke into custody until the end of issue 58. 
 
Because Marvel was SO EAGER to begin there next big event, they jumped the gun, which left us reading the proverbial last page of the book to see how it ends, before reading the rest of the novel. That's why Luke Cage is alive and (mostly) well in the List and New Avengers Annual #3... and Why Steve Rodgers showed up at the end of New Avengers and Dark Avengers Annual LONG before the end of Captain America: Reborn

"Is this the end of Luke Cage?!" 
 
Do I care? Even if he dies he'll be back. Bendis has a man-crush on him.

 "Is this the end of Luke Cage?!"
 
The death of Marvel's black superhero? 
 
not a chance.
 
if he dies at all for "shock value" he'll be back by the summer
 
***(obviously i know there are a few other black heroes)

I've always liked Cage. I think he's another hero that sits mostly on the sidelines as a waste but there are a lot of heroes that are like that. It's cool seeing such a strong response about him which is the whole idea behind the storyline, right?

Posted by ElJuano

LOL! I'm just gonna say this once... U all know Luke cage ain't real right? y r u getting pissed @Bendis he's supposed to put Cage thru hell,  in order to further develop that character. Cage has been for a long time a cliche, not taken too seriously until Bendis and some other writers have given him some credibility, he'll be a whole lot better off once he's been put thru the ringer.. Perfect example is Iron Fist! Don't fret just enjoy the ride!

Never read the Avengers before Bendis.  But I like how he gives the characters personality.

Please, please, PLEASE...
 
To all the Luke Cage fans: what do you see in this guy that makes you feel anything more than ambivalent about him? Why does Bendis love him?

Posted by InnerVenom123

He won't kill him becuase he loves to write him. 
 
But I would LOVE to see him die. And his wife and the baby, while we're at it.
