Cleo Anthony

  1. Mike Colter, Jessica Jones, TV, 2014.    Before Divergent and Transparent, the ex-model hadironically begun his acting career in a 2013 short (and follow-up series), called Have You Met  Miss Jones?  He didn’t meet this one – the Marvel superhero who suffers post-traumatic stress disorder, hangs up her duds and opens her own private eye shop – often assisting other spandexers.  Hence, Colter as Luke Cage for a few episodes before his Marvel series also began at the so-called new HBO: Netflix. 
  2. Mike Colter, Luke Cage, TV, 2016-   .   Darker, grittier, more tangible than the other Marvels… There had been much talk of a movie with Idris Elba, Jamie Foxx, Tyrese Gibson or Dwayne Johnson before South Carolina’s Colter became the superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s TV division. Thrice over!   He debuted in the Jessica Jones series, won his own show and then joined Jessica, Daredevil and Iron Fist as The Defenders. Colter’s main rivals for the black hero were Anthony, Lance Gross ,Isaiah Mustafa. A crime-fighter on the hush-hush, Cage has with exceptional powers – super-strength, unbreakable skin. “But,” said Colter, “he’s not sure how and when to use them.”
