Having made his TV debut on Netflix's Jessica Jones, we now get our first good look at what to expect from the standalone Luke Cage series.

Set in Harlem, the bulletproof hero is looking to rid the neighborhood of corruption and violence much in the same way that Daredevil patrols Hell's Kitchen - all the while set to ODB's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya."

“Harlem is a place where black folk managed to organize politically and artistically so that we see ourselves represented in government and literature and other fields," said show star, Mike Colter, adding that the show is, “the Wu-Tang-ification of the Marvel Universe.”

Jeph Loeb, a veteran comics writer who’s now the head of Marvel Television, talked at Comic Con about the difference between the heroes in Marvel's film universe versus those on television.

“The Avengers save the universe,” he said. “We wanted to tell stories about characters who save the streets.”

Luke Cage hits Netflix September 30.

In addition to the aforementioned preview for Luke Cage, Netflix also released teasers for two additional Marvel series, Iron Fist and The Defenders.

While both are light on plot details, we have the understanding that the latter show will feature Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Iron Fist all fighting alongside one another.
