Luke Cage Reaction Post

Finished it last night. Been mulling it since. I HAVE FEELS. Without spoilers:

* Luke Cage is from Georgia and the actor is from South Carolina. *flail* *in the AU of my mind I now have a shot*

* The integration of the show into the rest of the Marvel universe, but especially with having the street vendors selling recordings of "The Incident" eg. when the Chitauri attacked.

* All of the strong women of color. Fuck yes.

* How Luke Cage uses his hoodie as his superhero costume *the hood goes up, shit's going down* and how this is **embraced** within the show itself, the importance of having a black man who can't be shot.

* Related: Method Man's cameo/song later.

The show just made me happy. It's similar to Jessica Jones in that it handles the social issues of race and policing the way JJ handled women and rape culture. So A++.

Meanwhile, I want to be excited for Iron Fist, but....white dude. Like, that man is paler than I am. Just. There are so many great Asian-American actors, why couldn't they have gotten one? (Daniel Wu, I nominate Daniel Wu, good goddamn.)
