Set in the same universe as Daredevil, Jessica Jones and the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe, Luke Cage follows the titular character as he struggles to defend Harlem from crime boss Cornell ‘Cottonmouth’ Stokes, played by House of Cards stand-out, Mahershala Ali. The victim of an experiment gone wrong, Cage was blessed (cursed) with unbreakable skin and strength that would make even Superman grin.
The series is so popular, in fact, that it saw Netflix go down across much of the US and in parts of the UK and Ireland!
THAT takes power!
