The New Power Man

We all know that Luke Cage used to go by the name Power Man. Now Marvel Comics is releasing a new teen-aged Superhero that will go by the same name. He will even be operating in a similar fashion by becoming a Hero for Hire over the Internet. You can read an article about it here. Check it out then come back here and tell us what you think.

I hear Tyrese is gonna play him in the movie Luke Cage/ But I was hoping for Michael Jai White, but he maybe too old by Hollywood standards.

I heard about Tyrese a while ago too. Shadowland:Power Man sounds epic!!!

"Shadowland: Power Man" sounds amazing. Just the fact that they're going back and refreshing the concept is exciting, but it also sounds like he's going to have a lot of depth on his own. Shame they're making him half-Hispanic. No disrespect, but it feels like a cheat.

Some small parts of this are interesting, but overall I don't like it. It doesn't seem original enough. Seems like a weak attempt. Why bring back old stereotypes as villains? Maybe they'll update them for today, but a bad stereotype is still a bad stereotype. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think any type of authentic Black identity will be found in this. I've never seen any past work by the artist or the author but I don't see this lasting. I really hope I'm wrong.

I like the concept, and artist, Mahmud Asrar, was pretty dope on Dynamo 5. I can't wait to see how it turns out

I'm mixed on it. I like Powerman, but we'll always compare him to the original. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
