Explique, si vous plait?
Ok, respect to Luke Cage, hero for Hire, forever. And I’m not talking the pseudo-racist Brian Azarello Cage or the Bendis I’m too cool for a costume Luke Cage, I’m talking about old school metal tiara yellow shirt open “Sweet Christmas”, fighting villains named Cockroach Luke Cage Hero for hire.
If not respect then appreciation for the foul mouthed, kinda super-powered, alcoholic semi serious Bendis creation of Jessica Jones. I read every single issue of Alias and the Pulse, and tracked the whole Jessica Jones falling in love in Luke Cage.
But come the hell on! Why does the black icon of the seventies have to hook up with the most trailer trash alcoholic chick in the Marvel Universe? And its not even that I’m against the inter-racial thing. I’m just saying why the most low rent white chick on the marvel universe?
Why not Ms. Marvel, or Spider-woman. My collaborator on Afrogeeks seems to think Joss Whedon has problems with black men. Fuck that, Joss is a scripting god mainlining Celestial L.S.D. through his metaphysical veins. Bendis and the editors at Marvel got issues with Black dudes. Yeah, there’s two Marvel weddings going on, Black Panther and Storm, and Luke “Pimp my world” Cage and Jessica “I like to get drink before I have sex” Jones”. B.P and Storm, is just an example of two God like characters joining, big freaking deal. I mean they’re not human so they can’t really be black, you know? But Luke was human. His only power was being strong and bullet proof. No country of his own, no ability to control weather, just a convict with a hard ass body. He was the most human of the black super heroes. So does that mean he has to kick it with a demented white girl with no powers to speak of who failed at the superhero game? Just saying, it smells fishy.
