I am really looking forward to the new Luke Cage series on Netflix. I am assuming that they will be going with the more contemporary version of the character, that got rid of some of the 70's trapping the character had - costume, code name, even a head of hair! I do like the modern Luke Cage and the higher place of importance he holds in the Marvel Universe, but part of me would have loved to have seen the classic version of the character that I grew up with in a period piece. Not many people could get away with a yellow shirt, chain belt and man-tiara - but Power man could because he was just so damned cool! I'm not expecting that guy to show up on the Netflix series, but maybe us old fans can at least get a "Sweet Christmas" uttered by the star of the show.
