A blog to showcase some of MCU Luke Cage's powers.
Below, Luke survives being hit by an RPG blast. He is briefly knocked out but suffers no permanent damage as a result of the explosion or debris:
Thus far, the only weapon to harm Luke are the Judas bullets, which are derived from a material found after the Chitauri invasion. It is able to pierce Luke's outer layers of skin, drill a little deeper and then explode, sending debris into his body. Luke was hit twice by these bullets, once in the gut and once in the shoulder, the main issue for him is not the damage these bullets cause, but that, due to his invulnerability, these bullets cannot be extracted by traditional means. These bullets are extremely powerful.
Speed and Skill:
Luke regularly integrates this skill and speed into his fights, effortlessly dispatching opponents who demonstrate considerable technical skill:
Other notable feats:
In Jessica Jones 1x06 'AKA You're a Winner!' Luke effortlessly walks forwards when Jessica Jones (a woman who has stopped cars from both accelerating and from running over a child with one hand) tries with all of her strength to prevent him from doing so. He then pushes her aside with ease.
In the same episode, Luke heavily implies he used his bare hands to dig through concrete:
- In Jessica Jones 1x12 'AKA Take a Bloody Number' Luke states he moved around cars and other heavy objects to test his powers:
"When I first got these powers, I took a trip to the junkyard. Started moving hunks of metal back and forth. Rusted out cars, busted stoves. Just to see what I could lift."
- In the same episode,' Luke tanked many shots from the superhuman Jessica Jones with no ill effect.
- Luke also displayed an impressive and singular resistance to Kilgrave's mind control, having to be told twice to get in the car upon their first meeting, and halting his attempts to kill Jessica multiple times throughout their fight. He even had to be told to continue by Kilgrave at one point. Note that this was after Kilgrave's powers were increased.
- In Jessica Jones 1x13 'AKA Smile' a surgical drill broke against Luke's skin.
- In Luke Cage 1x06 'Suckas Need Bodyguards' Luke jumped from a sixth story window and created a large crack in the pavement outside and was completely unharmed, able to run immediately afterwards with no sign of injury.
