Here is a pretty timely tie-in as we get our first clip from Marvel’s Luke Cage season 2. Luke Cage shows off his superhero strength by competing in the physical and mental tests of the combine event, similar to the one that college football players have gone through on their way to the NFL Draft, which begins today.
In the below clip, Luke takes on the combine to show his true power to the world and to himself. The new clip from season 2 features Marvel’s Luke Cage star Mike Colter, alongside NY Jets Head Coach Todd Bowles and sports personalities Jemele Hill and Michael Smith, in a test of inhuman strength and physical achievement.
The synopsis for season 2 reads:
After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

The second season is executive produced by series showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker (Ray Donovan), Jim Chory (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), and Jeph Loeb (Marvel’s Jessica Jones), who also serves as Marvel’s Head of Television.
