LUKE CAGE #166-170 (David F. Walker / Blake, Sanna)

Cet automne, Marvel Comics donnera le coup d’envoi d’une nouvelle initiative intitulée MARVEL LEGACY. Marvel annonce un retour aux sources, à l’ancienne numérotation des plus vieux titres de son catalogue, des récits qui seront des points d’entrée idéals…un accent mis sur les personnages iconiques mais sans oublier la nouvelle génération du Marvel NOW.
Bref, “de l’espoir, du plaisir, du fun, du sense of wonder” !

Marvel a dévoilé une salve de 52 (!) titres par le biais de couvertures teasers rendant hommage à une illustration passée. La numérotation et les équipes créatives n’ont pas encore été révélées.

Parmi les séries récentes qui continueront sur leur lancée, il y aura celle de Luke Cage :

La série Luke Cage débutera l’ère LEGACY avec le #166 et un arc intitulé “Caged”.

Dans l’arc narratif Caged, Luke Cage va se retrouver une nouvelle fois en prison. Ce sera notamment l’occasion pour le scénariste David F. Walker d’explorer la personnalité et le passé du personnage qui, avant de se faire appeler Luke Cage, répondait au nom de Carl Lucas.

David F. Walker : Luke Cage is not Luke Cage. Carl Lucas is Luke Cage. And this story is about what it is in Carl Lucas that makes him Luke Cage. Within the Legacy storyline there is an exploration of who Luke Cage is at his core, and by this I don’t mean Luke Cage – I actually mean Carl Lucas. Hardcore fans know that Luke Cage’s real name is Carl Lucas, and that he became Luke Cage after getting super powers and escaping prison. We are exploring what makes Luke Cage who he is, but in order to do that, we really need to get into Carl Lucas. Once he’s gone through the ordeal he will face in Legacy, we will have a better sense of who he is at the core of his being.

What I’m trying to do is take Luke back to the place he was when he was first introduced into the Marvel universe. When we talk about the ‘Classic Marvel’ feeling, I think some people get confused. There was a specific way stories were written in decades past – captions, thought balloons, and things like that. Yes, that’s part of the ‘Classic Marvel,’ but there is something much deeper, and it speaks to the emotional resonance of the characters. Marvel’s characters have always been most interesting because of who they are, more than because of what they do. This particular Luke Cage story is about him and the circumstances he is in, which define him and shape him, and to me that is ‘Classic Marvel.’
