Luke Cage as you have never seen him before

I confess I am getting this from the CBR forums, but it's so good it HAS to be commented on.
Here is the link to that discussion.

Is that what you tell Jessica Jones?

There's a certain truth to that. However, as a comic reader of color, I will give Marvel credit for headlining a Black character in the early to mid-1970's.

Also, it's never been like Luke was Stepin Fetchit. They attempted to make him rough about the edges, but I never felt that they wrote him any worse than any other ethnic characters--they were all done pretty badly in terms of speech patterns.
