Marvel’s Luke Cage season 2 first look: See Misty Knight with her new bionic arm

Yup, this daughter of the dragon has finally gotten the upgrade that allows her to match her comic-book counterpart: She now wields a prosthetic bionic arm — spoiler alert! — to replace the one the Hand villain Bakuto (Ramón Rodríguez) sliced off in Marvel’s The Defenders. And for those who need a refresher, at the end of the team-up series, Misty wound up recovering in a hospital owned by Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and watched over by Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick).

 

Clearly, she’s back in action by the time she appears in Luke Cage season 2 — and below, EW has the exclusive first look at the NYPD detective sporting her high-tech enhancement alongside Luke (Mike Colter) and his unbreakable skin:

Marvel, as usual, is keeping details of how and when Misty gets her bionic arm under wraps, but in the comics, Misty’s bionic arm was designed by Tony Stark and Stark Industries after she lost the limb in a bombing. The arm grants her superhuman strength and a slew of other abilities involving energy blasts and gravity fields and even a nifty ability to control robots.

Of course, that’s all comic-book Misty. Marvel-Netflix Misty’s abilities remain to be seen, but one thing’s for sure: She’s going to be a whole lot harder to take down now that her weapon never leaves her side.

Marvel’s Luke Cage returns in 2018 on Netflix.
