Fan of Marvel and Geek by excellence, this year, Christmas is coming earlier than usual. Denzel Washington in a western, and now, one of my favorite hero will hit the small screen on September 30th on Netflix. So, like Georges Clooney used to say :”What else…”
Malcom X

Malcom X

First, let’s start with this movement that emerged in the United States in the early 70’s named “Blaxploitation”. Term coined by Junius Griffin, an ex-film publicist, from the words “black” and “exploitation.”
At this time, black-American, later Afro-American and then African-American, are still fighting for their rights ; Black Panthers are now celebrating 4 years (1966) of existence and the nation mourns the death of two of its greatest leaders : Martin Luther King Jr. (1968) and Malcom X (1965).
South Bronx is pregnant of a small but soon great kid named Hip-Hop. Yep, at this time, Djs began isolating the percussive breaks of popular songs. Technique common in Jamaican dub music, introduced into New York by immigrants from Caribbean Sea, including Dj Kool Herc himself aka The founding father of Hip Hop.

Shaft

On the screens of theaters, a new kind of “baaadassss” heroes are rising in the dark movie theaters. Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song and Shaft (The Only and Almighty Shaft) are kicking all our troubles for two hours : KKK, Drug dealers, crackers, crooked politicians… Our new heroes from minority are now the models of a youth that seeks itself.
No need to say that at this moment, in USA, for publicist and companies, Black lives started to matter. Brands see a new opportunity to make money, bring a new clientele and increased their sales.

June 1972, “Sweet Christmas”, the first Black super hero to star in his own ongoing title arrived, shortly after Blaxploitations films emerged as a popular new genre, in our bookstores under the supervision of Marvel and thanks to Archie Goodwin and John Romita Sr.

Luke Cage - Hero for Hire #1

Luke Cage – Hero for Hire #1

Luke Cage, Hero for Hire #1 introduced a character who was an attempt to tie into the craziness that was beginning to sweep Hollywood. The ex-con, wrongly convicted, came back to Harlem to clear his name after escaped prison and make money.

But later, while Blaxploitation genre’s popularity faded, Cage had to team-up with the martial arts superhero Iron Fist on the title “Power Man and Iron Fist”; canceled 8 years later in September 86 with issue #125.
In the 90’s, Cage came back in a new series titled Cage for twenty issues written by Marc McLaurin.
In 2010, he became a regular characters in Thunderbolts, Dark Avengers and The New Avengers.

Power Man and Iron Fist

Power Man and Iron Fist… did I say that Iron Fist is also coming soon on Netflix ???

This very year, 44 years after his first apparition, Luke Cage is doing another comeback ; well to be fair, interpreted by Mike Colter, he came back last year as a side kick in theMarvel/Netflix series Jessica Jones… But wait, because my introduction has to be perfect, and also because I did the maths between 2016-1972, allow me to forget about that one. So…

44 years after his first apparition, on September 30th, “Sweet Christmas”!!! LuKe Cage will be BACK!!!! And what a comeback…

Luke Cage Marvel/Netflix

Luke Cage Marvel/Netflix – 30 September 2016 on Netflix

    • First he will have his own tv show, another Marvel/Netflix series, and for the fan of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, this is a good news if we like what they did with these two Marvels.
    • Second, a show that will give a first place to the African-American culture. In a scenery located in Harlem, New York and a hip hop, soul, jazz and blues background audio to assist him throughout his fights as the new defender of Harlem.

  • Third, the synopsis sounds like another Slick Rick, WuTang or Nas‘ classic : “After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive who attempts to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But soon he is pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city… forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.”
  • And finally, he will be in the new Marvel/Netflix series “The Defenders” but that my friends, is another story.

So ladies and Gentlemen… Enjoy it.
