Last month we found out that Marvel’s Luke Cage is set to begin production in a few weeks, but so far we haven’t heard much about any characters that might appear in the 13-part series alongside the titular hero, who will be played by Mike Colter and make his debut in Marvel’s Jessica Jones later this year.
Well, we’ve found out that a character from the early Power Man comics will make an appearance in the series. According to our sources, Cornell Cottonmouth will be one of the show’s villains.
For those unfamiliar, Cottonmouth was a drug lord in New York. The heroin that was used by Willis Stryker, aka Diamondback to frame Luke Cage for drug trafficking was stolen from Cottonmouth’s organization. Cottonmouth possessed super-strength, and was able to fight Luke Cage to a stand-off.
