If you are going to make a thread featuring Cage, at least get his powers right. MCU Cage does not simply have "dense" skin. They explicitly explain how his powers work on the show. His DNA got spliced with foreign DNA, which altered his cells, strengthening the bonds. His cells also regenerate which, according to the doctor who gave him his powers, makes him a virtually immortal (in that his body doesn't age).
What's more, while his skin seems to be the toughest part, his enhancement extends beyond it. We are explicitly shown and told this. There is a scene where Claire tries to perform surgery on Luke after getting shot with the first Judas bullet. She tries to pierce the inner soft tissue, past the skin, and fails, noting that his internal tissue is nearly as tough as his skin is. Luke also tries, and only manages to bend the scalpel. Also, Claire later notes that his epithelial cells (which line things like internal organs and blood vessels) are "super elastic" and "energy absorbent". And even if they didn't explicitly tell us, the Judas bullets (which literally exploded like small grenades, as seen when they blast craters in concrete walls, and blew up Mace's podium on an episode of AoS) detonated inside Luke's torso, past his skin layer. So, his skin offered no protection. If he didn't have superhumanly tough insides, it would have all been turned to pulp when the bullet exploded, which would have killed him near instantly. But we don't need to look at that, because there is literally a scene where Luke bends a scalpel trying to cut inside of himself.
And all of this is directly shown and stated on his show.
This thread wasn't concerning Cage's skin detailed description!
However thanks for the information, will keep it in mind for future threads
