New Power Man Debuts in Shadowlands – Marvel Comics

All New Power Man Debuts in Shadowland

Luke Cage Could Not Be Reached For a Comment

All New, All Different Power Man

All New, All Different Power Man

Shadowland: Power Man, a four-issue mini-series by Fred Van Lente, starts in August with a teenaged hero in the lead role. This new Power Man has ties to both Iron Fist and Luke Cage, with a slew of newly revived street villains and a power set and origin that links him to Bullseye.

While I’m not to keen on Luke Cage’s superhero name being given away (even if he isn’t using it or that fabulous tiara he use to wear anymore), I am excited that a guy named Power Man has energy-based powers. Though, I’m not too keen on another urban superhero involved in a turf war. I get that there aren’t many black urban superheroes in Marvel anymore (since they are all getting promote to the top-tier comics), I’d like to see some African mythology superheroes like a Black Thor. Hell give me Luke Cage as Black Thor, I’d even settle for him to re-inherit Wrecker’s crowbar (even though I am sure that would just cause all kind of negative imagery about black superheroes).
