Possessing similar abilities to Luke such as super strength and being impervious to bullets, it looks like our hoodie donning hero has finally met his match.

Though the Marvel/Netflix crossover series The Defenders had no bearing on Jessica Jones' second season, it might have a little bit of an impact on Luke Cage Season 2 - if only to show how Luke (Mike Colter) is dealing with new-found fame after trying to lay low in Season 1. And though Luke clearly tries to do so in the footage above, he's about to face a new threat in town who isn't scared of an invulnerable man: John McIver a.k.a. Bushmaster (The Deuce's Mustafa Shakir), who's able to withstand bullets himself. It turns out Bushmaster is just as strong as Luke and has more moves, whereas Luke still gets by with "smack-fu". Alfre Woodard reprises her role as Mariah Dillard, who is fed up of Harlem's knights and kings - when what it really needs is a queen. "Just so we're clear, I'm not in the market for a sidekick", he tells Misty.

According to the press release, Luke will need to "confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain".

No longer able to hide in the shadows after the events of season one, his visibility only increases his need to protect those around him, leading some hard choices.
