From the incredible mind of Marvel, Luke Cage’s executive producer Cheo Chodari Coker has brilliantly delivered an iconic African American Superhero in the right way at the right time. Luke Cage, played by talented and sexy Actor Mike Colter, is a hoodie wearing, bulletproof justice fighter with super strength, who can no longer hide out while crime corruption attempt to consume the city of Harlem.
But First, lets begin by paying homage to some real #BlackGirlMagic….yes, that definitely describes the beautiful and incredibly talented Simone Missick, breakout star from the new original Netflix series, Marvel’s Luke Cage. Missick portrays the laser focused, fearless and super sexy detective Misty Knight, whose commitment to her hometown of Harlem is not up for question as she fights to protect and defend her city.
Missick redefines what it means to be tough, athletic and sexy as a black woman in America. Growing up in Detroit she was able to tap into the personality traits of Misty Knight by bringing her own experiences to the table. Through heightened senses, Knight is able to solve crim by playing basketball with suspects, being the sexy woman at the bar, and vividly recreating each crime scene by the simplest clues around her. Misty Knight embodies the vivacious, conscious and intelligent women of the Harlem Renaissance in modern day.
