Power Man and Shaft



This would have been a fun pairing to see back in the day, either in the comics or on the big screen.  Luke Cage was always the coolest hero in the room, but he might meet his match here.  Watching them fight side by side with an awesome 70's soundtrack would have been a great way to spend a summer afternoon.

Sweet Chtistmas! That would have been a hell of a film!

That is a cool team I shudder to think what would happen if you added Afro Samurai Black Dynamite and Cleopatra Jones

Yep! The original SHAFT was definitely a trend-setter. But, my favorite Blaxplotation flick was THREE THE HARD WAY with Jim Brown, Jim Kelly, Fred Williamson, and Jay Robinson as "Monroe Feather." It had more racist Bad Guys getting their butts whupped than you could shake an escrima stick at!

Wow!
I almost pity the bad guy who gets in their way...

Now, what about adding Milestone Comics' parody version, 'Buck Wild, Mercenary Man' ("hero for rent")?
