When we last saw Misty Knight, she’d lost her arm while fighting Bakuto alongside Colleen Wing in The Defenders. While this may have come as a shock to some non-comic fans, many of us were actually waiting for that moment to happen, as she famously has a bionic arm in the source material.
It’s with that in mind that it’s no surprise that Luke Cage Season 2 will pick up with her still adjusting to a post-arm life. It’s not clear when she’ll be getting the arm, but at least until then, we get to see her get into a barroom brawl. In it, she is talking to Colleen when she gets confronted by a man whose brother was sent to prison thanks to her work.
As one would expect, this leads to a fight, and in it, we see that she is still very much grappling with the loss of her arm, and see her trying to swing it, only to remember the sad truth. The man smacks her down, and upon seeing Colleen letting her take matters into her own hands, she does so, bringing the rest of the man’s friends into the fight as well.
Colleen only joins in on the action when a man breaks a bottle on the bar and starts to head in towards Misty.
On the whole, it’s a fun scene, even if the whole setup and choreography is a bit stilted. Fight scenes themselves aren’t really the strong suit of these Defenders series, and that kind of shows in this clip. But what do you think? Let us know your thoughts down below!
