Luke Cage is the Hero America Needs

I was a comic book kid when I was a boy. I read a ton and spent a lot of time in my thoughts.. Imagine that: a white kid in rural Vermont with a black super hero as one of my favorites.. Many years later, every possible geek dream I ever had just came to life with this new Marvel Comics trailer for the upcoming Luke Cage series on Netflix.

Booom! Looks like I finally need to bite down on that membership. And the use of that Wu-tang? Brilliant. I just watched this thing several times. And I'm a kid again!
