Quote1.png I can tell by the masks that you're bad guys. Nice touch. Almost intimidating. But the minivan ruins the effect. Maybe that's how y'all do it down here in New Orleans, but the rest of the world -- New York, Madripoor, Boise -- the bad guys don't roll up in minivans. And there ain't but three of you. A van that big can comfortably seat eight. Seems like you don't take your villainy serious. Quote2.png
-- Luke Cage

Solicit Synopsis


Dr. Noah Burstein, the man who made Luke Cage into the unbreakable hero he is today, is dead. When Luke goes down to New Orleans for the funeral, he finds The Big Easy to be pretty &$#% difficult. Mysterious billionaires, a woman with a secret, amped-up gangs and a shadowy figure all lead Luke to the conclusion that there’s more to his father-figure’s death than meets the eye. He’s looking for answers, and it’s a bad day for anyone in his way!
