We met Misty Knight (Simone Missick) in the first episode of Marvel’s Luke Cage season 1 as she went into a club undercover to see what Cornell ‘Cottonmouth’ Stokes (Mahershala Ali) was up to. There she met Luke (Mike Colter) working as a bartender and the two of them ended up ‘getting a cup of coffee’. If you’re a fan of the series you’ll know why that’s in quotes. She became his friend and involved in his attempt to take down Cottonmouth, Shades (Theo Rossi) and Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard). And after he got out of prison, in Marvel’s The Defenders, she showed him what Harlem was since he left and pointed him in the direction of Sowande (Babs Olusanmokun) which led him to a fight with Danny Rand (Finn Jones) and eventually fighting with him and the others against the Hand. It also lead Misty into a lot of trouble at her job and eventually having her arm cut off by Bakuto (Ramon Rodriguez).
The arm loss wasn’t a surprise to long time comic fans. Her character has a bionic arm in the comics and is teamed up with Colleen Wing to form Knightwing Investigations but also go by the name Daughters of the Dragon. In the series, Misty and Colleen (Jessica Henwick) meet for the first time during the fight with Bakuto and Colleen visits her in the hospital after. We’ve seen a clip of the two of them out for a drink from the new season of Luke Cage, so they’re building that friendship. We’d also see a still shot or two with Misty using her bionic arm. Now we have the best look at it yet through a quick video from the series official Twitter account.
FYI. Misty’s no sidekick. pic.twitter.com/Un1xXG0Oln
