3. Luke Cage’s Motivation
In the comics, in ‘Jessica Jones’, and it seems in here, Luke Cage is not the first guy to run out and save the day. As we see here, he’s a reluctant hero who’s afraid of what he’s got, and he’d rather lay low and work at the local mom-and-pop barber shop than be a superhero. But when that barber shop is shot up (presumably by Stokes’ men) and his loved ones are in danger, that may be the kick Cage needs to suit up and fight back.
