--Previous Message-- : That's what Luke Cage lukes like to me. It's : how he looked in the 90s. I don't remember Luke looking like -that- in the 90s. He's big, yeah, but he's not a bodybuilder in level of cut-upped-ness.
: Luke Cage is not supposed to look like some : guy. He's huge. Just because NA and Secret : Wars blew it is no reason for people who : know his history to forget it.
What about those of us who remember his history back from the 70s and 80s? Luke was a cool cat back in the day, but he wasn't built like the Rhino.
I agree, I looked through my collection of cage comics and while he has always looked big he has never looked like a professional body builder. I will concede that in the cage series in the '90's he did look body builder big but that was more the artist then anything, the captain and wonderman were both the same size as cage when they guest starred, wonderman even held cage up with one hand by the neck while standing up and cage was way smaller then the hulk or the rhino. I think Henry Simmons from NYPD Blue is exactly how cage should look. on one episode simmons character was looking for a kid on a basket ball court and I half expected him to say "What's my name?"
