You realise that stopping a multi-ton SUV, which seemed to be accelerating after turning the corner, would require strength well beyond the 1-ton level right?

And Jessica herself stopped a taxi, looking to be going around 30mph, early on in her own series. And with one hand, IIRC. She also casually broke countless heavy locks, padlocks etc. with one hand throughout the series (ask even the strongest men in the world to easily break a proper padlock with one hand, and see how far they get), casually lifted and held the back of a car that was trying to drive off, and even effortlessly snapped out of a pair of police handcuffs at one point. So she had some decent strength levels. She just lacked any real fighting skill.

She also ripped a police car door off it's hinges to use as a shield against Luke.

Jessica using the car door as a shield against Luke is both impressive and stupid at the same time

It was pretty stupid, considering he just ripped it out of her hands. laughing

Which again also proved who is stronger between the two.

I love how he drops these guys with almost no visible effort. Based on this, and some of the other clips we've seen so far (like the guy breaking his fist in the shop, the SUV stop, and Luke steamrolling through those thugs in that hallway), he's going to be an absolute tank.

I'm actually curious as to who is fighting Cage at 2:07 in the main trailer, because he seems to be giving him some trouble. It almost looks like it could be the guy being played by Theo Rossi.

Reviews are all glowing so far:

quote:
Den of Geek!— Mike Cecchini

Oh, and the tunes! The glorious tunes! This probably shouldn’t be a surprise considering that showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker wrote for Rolling Stone, Vibe, The Source, and XXL, but music plays the most active role in a superhero production since Guardians of the Galaxy. The show’s mix of rap, R&B gems, and deep blues cuts is tremendous (John Lee Hooker’s I’m Bad Like Jesse James is quietly used to extraordinary effect in one scene). Equally impressive is the original score by Adrian Younge (the Black Dynamite soundtrack) and A Tribe Called Quest’s Ali Shaheed Muhammad, which adds a perfect veneer of 70s style to the proceedings.
Comics Beat— Kyle Pinion

One of the best aspects of each of Marvel’s Netflix offerings is the richness of their villains, as both Fisk and Kilgrave proved to be menacing and mostly multi-faceted creations that blow away their big screen counterparts, save for Loki. But again, both The Kingpin and The Purple Man are well-crafted characters that have much to draw from, regardless of how exceptional both D’Onofrio and David Tennant’s performances were. So when I say that Mahershala Ali’s Stokes is easily their equal, if not even more richly defined, that achievement is a both a credit to what’s on the script page and just what sort of meditative ferocity Ali is able to conjure behind this figure, who is at once terrifying and incredibly sympathetic. This is a character so rich that, while being the clear antagonist of the series’ machinations, one can’t help but be amazed at the moral gray tones that he’s swathed in.
Heroic Hollywood — Andy Behbakht

If I were to describe Luke Cage with just one word: it would be soul. Not just the character of Luke, but the show itself with all of its characters, the story that it is telling and more. There is a lot of great and fun action because let’s face it, when you are dealing with a superhero who is unbreakable and super-strong, you are in for a treat. The tone of the series also do fit in quite nicely within the MCU, while being able to stand on its own, but again, definitely matches this big world that Marvel Studios has built.
Collider — Allison Keene

Like we saw glimpses of in Jessica Jones, [Mike Colter] gives Cage a sense of reticence mixed with righteous defiance that hits all the right notes for a hero who uses his strength only as a last resort, and he does so in low tones and with a casual confidence. Though Cage isn’talways confident, he’s extremely principled with a magnetic charisma, making him a kind of Captain America to this ragtag group of vigilantes. Though he may struggle to define his heroism and what it means for himself and Harlem, there are no complications for viewers. He is the hero we’ve been waiting for.

Yeah, I've checked out a couple of other early reviews as well, and they've all been quite positive.

Also, this.



I seriously cringed seeing the full extent of that break.

I am literally the world's biggest nerd for knowing this, but the common usage of that word predates the 1950s by some margin. I really need a more exciting job. laughing

3 episodes in and the show is really great much better than Jessica Jones. It seems that they went the same route with a villain much closer to the neighborhood/characters like They did in DD and Jessica Jones. Cottonmouth is a pretty cool gangster yet introspective guy with a code of honor. Overall he first few episodes were great
