From the first moment that we met Misty Knight during Netflix’s first season of Luke Cage, there was one question on every comics fans’ mind about the character’s future: “when are we going to see her get that badass bionic arm?” Well, now we know.
The New York City of the Marvel universe is teeming with heroes, being home to everyone from Steve Rogers to Peter Parker. With four of those famous New Yorkers teaming up on the small screen today in The Defenders, we decided to rank the finest inhabits of the comic book Big Apple.
The Defenders debuts on Netflix this Friday, bringing together four different characters and TV shows into one giant super mega crossover. For anyone who needs a reminder of what the heck these characters have been doing, or maybe skipped Iron Fist for relatively obvious reasons, here’s a video crash course.

The funny thing about seeing all of Netflix’s Defenders fighting together is that when you think about it, they all kinda have a variation of the same archetypical superpower. The Defenders aren’t just the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s street-level heroes, they all punch things really hard—and that’s part of what makes…
Comic book fans know that The Defenders’ Iron Fist and Luke Cage are destined to work together. But we’ve seen the trailers, we’ve seen the two of them fighting, and we know that it’s not friendship at first sight. So, what is the root of the problem?
It sounds like an insult to say that The Defenders is exactly what you thought it would be, but it isn’t. It’s a show that’s very aware of the expectations put upon it and the problems encountered by the other Marvel Netflix shows, and it knows how to best utilize its cast and its time. In other words, it’s great.
Matt Murdock’s Catholic upbringing and his deep feelings of guilt are just as important to Daredevil as his enhanced senses. So it shouldn’t be a shock to see Matt take confession in this new clip from the first episode of The Defenders—although it is kind of surprising that even the priest would like him to stop…
The Defenders have taken over Comic-Con in a big way Friday evening giving us teasers for Punisher, a taste of what’s to come in Iron Fist, and even for fans attending the panel, a sneak peak of Defenders’ first episode. But for us at home, we get this glorious new trailer to revel in, and it’s so, so good.
Ever sat down to bingewatch Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, or Iron Fist and wondered “Hey, what these shows really need is Stan Lee being driven around in a car and lurking creepily in the background” to yourself? Well my friends, does Netflix Korea have the trailer for you.
