Last Friday, Netflix introduced another in its line of superhero shows with Luke Cage, a DC character that brawls his way through bad guys in New York City. Netflix has Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, the other superhero Netflix show, live and date in the same hero world in their respective shows, which follows the comic world. Starting with Daredevil, Netflix has capitalized on the superhero frenzy that has taken over the movie industry.
Last year, these larger-than-life movies grossed about $700 million in the box office with the Avengers: Age of Ultron being the highest grossing film. Films like the Avengers, Batman v. Superman and Suicide Squad were all in the top ten highest grossing films in the last couple years.
And with these movies making you leave the theater hoping you had a superpower, the stream of themed movies doesn’t seem to be ebbing anytime soon. Spider-Man has the ability of a spider, the Flash has incredible speed and Superman is, well, super. Yet with all these, they teach us the values and morals of what it means to be a good Samaritan. That’s why this week we asked our RockStars – Who’s your favorite superhero?
