Luke Cage is here!! I've waited for this for so long,We are reintroduced to Luke Cage who was last seen in Jessica Jones.Marvel has done a great job in the casting department,Not just the movies but even they cast the right people for TV series .Mike Colter as Luke Cage fits the bill and 'Cottonmouth' played by Mahershala Ali is perhaps the most intriguing character of the show(You might call him the Kingpin of Luke Cage TV series) .We are also introduced to some other side characters like Shades,Mariah and Misty Knight .The show is laying down the groundwork for the conflict between Luke Cage and Cottonmouth.One good

thing about the show is that it is banking on its own individual story line rather than depending on Daredevil or Jessica Jones.The first episode is pretty decent but it suffers with the same sluggish pace that all the Netflix Marvel shows face but overall it is entertaining .
