And now for something completely different! Although Power Man and Iron Fist does feature another character we first spotted the live-action MCU version of in Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, teaming back up with his old partner Iron Fist. But don’t tell Luke that, it’s just a favor for a friend, and how well does that usually work out when you’re a superhero?
The first issue expertly straddles old and new – the plot focuses on Danny and Luke helping out their old Heroes for Hire office manager after she gets out of prison, but all is not what it appears. We also see a bit of home life with Luke and Jessica Jones, such as the running gag about with Luke not swearing. David Walker’s got the Luke/Danny banter down, and Sanford Greene’s art with Lee Loughridge’s colors invokes the 70’s era movies and shows that originally inspired the characters. It’s no secret that Iron Fist is a personal favorite of mine, but this has inspired me to go back to the beginning in Marvel Unlimited to get the full details on what’s going on. Definitely checking out issue 2.
