Luke Cage

I finished Luke Cage last night, and really enjoyed it. At the beginning, it felt really mainstream, more of a crime drama than a Marvel show -- it wasn't until we got Luke's backstory and then Claire's arrival that I felt really grounded in the JJ/DD NYC world. (Loved the Trish Talk cameo, too.)

This show has such a wealth of well-drawn women characters of color -- Misty, Claire, Mariah, Priscilla, even the precinct captain. Heck, even Connie, who I wish hadn't disappeared completely.

But in the wee hours of the night, I wondered if the Luke/whoever 'ship wars are already rumbling over on Tumblr? I'm not including Misty, because it seems they both moved on from it pretty quickly, but Claire (who is the most awesome character in the Netflix MCU) vs. offscreen Jessica (whom I adore).

Contemplation under the cut: Read more... )

In any case, I really hope this does not turn into one of those woman against woman fan battles, like the ones that made Sleepy Hollow fandom so unpleasant.

And, coming from another perspective, I paired Jessica *with* Claire for a ficathon awhile back. It's called "Better Late Than . . ." and it was written before s. 2 of DD, so it assumes Claire is still in Hell's Kitchen. Check it out if you like: http://archiveofourown.org/works/6127756
