> LUKE CAGE: CAGED! Prison broke Carl Lucas, but he was rebuilt as a new man: the hero Luke Cage. Now, Luke is about to be tested as never before in the crucible that made him. In a nowhere town, Luke finds himself on the wrong side of the law. It's a nightmare on the surface, and there's more darkness underneath: a power that could threaten the entire world.
Average, formula, set up tale at best.
It was a bit skimpy and a bit slow. 20 pages of an impromptu road trip to the middle of nowhere to order food in a diner and scuffle with some hypnotized cops. It's not like The &%#& Ringmaster hasn't controlled the masses before - but he's a Classic Marvel villain that deserves a spotlight return as much as the next supervillain - so here's hoping they come up with a twist, next issue, that stands out from recent Pleasant Hill and Purple Man storylines - for just 2 recent regurgitation examples.
The interesting bit (and ongoing pet peeve) was the unsaid Avengers status implications and details with him flashing an active Avengers Identicard.
Great cover image in spite of the bland name font.
I miss Dan and Dad.
