There’s no question, “Luke Cage” is the blackest superhero EVER (And that’s saying something considering Black Panther is literally from Africa and wears an all black costume).
From the show’s opening theme, to the musical guests (Raphael Saadiq!) to the fact that each episode is named after a Gangstarr song — it’s all black everything. Throw in the fact that his love interest is a mature black woman with natural hair and we are ready to black out with glee.
So when we found out Luke himself — actor Michael Colter — is actually married to a white woman we just KNEW he would probably catch hell for it.
Turns out we were right as seen in this interview on “The Breakfast Club.”
TELL US: The Blackest superhero on TV is married to a white woman in real life — mad or nah?
