The latest show from Marvel and Netflix will challenge to be the best of the three with Daredevil and Jessica Jones facing a stiff challenge from the indestructible superhero with bulletproof skin and superhuman strength. Luke Cage is an ex-con who is still grieving the loss of his wife at the hands of Jessica Jones, which we learned in season 1 of that series.

Despite his troubled past, Luke is poised to have a bright future as the reluctant hero that Harlem needs to fight against Cottonmouth Stokes and dirty politician Mariah Dillard.

There are two seasons of Luke Cage available to stream on Netflix. The series was canceled when Netflix decided to stop producing all the Netflix-Marvel shows, including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and The Punisher. 

We did get to see all those shows come together in the miniseries, The Defenders.
