Luke Cage is almost here. The litness level is off the charts, fam. The bulletproof black superhero has never had a live action show. But even with his problematic past in the comic books (due to white writers) he’s been a blerd favorite forever. And if you didn’t know, now you know.

The trailer is out.

Right after the Luke Cage panel at San Diego Comic Con late Thursday, July 21, the internet was set ablaze. You could cut the hype with a knife and serve it for dinner. In one minute and 28 seconds, almost everything you need to know about Luke Cage is revealed. ODB is blaring behind the visuals. Luke is ripping a door off of a truck on the sidewalk. Bad guys are catching the hands from every angle. It’s all the way real right now. He’s Harlem’s hero.

If that wasn’t enough, the info from the panel is almost more inspiring than the trailer itself.

That’s right, Gang Starr. Plus the Marvel universe is getting an infusion of the Wu, and I’m all the way here for it.

I only have one question.
