image for Netfix cancels Luke Cage; superhero not happy
"Luke Cage" star works out, vowing "revenge" for show's cancellation

Netfix has said no to a new season of Cap'n Marvell Studios' Luke Cage, a jive-action comic strip starring somebody named Mike Coltrane (no relation to John) as the crime-fighting superhero.

Although Netfix executives were vague in saying why the series was axed, Coltrane suspects “the suits' motive was racism.”

“Luke be from Harlem,” the show's star charged, “while the suits, they be from the 'Hood, as in Hollywood, which everybuddy know is whiter than a lily.”

“That's nonsense,” a Marvell spokesperson countered. “Netfix canceled Iron Fist, too, and the actor, Finnegan Jones, is white—he's a Mick, I think.”

“How come they didn't cancel Daredevil, too, then?” Coltrane demanded. “Charlie Cocks, a white boy, play him, and Daredevil be renewed for a third season.”

The Wasp, a character actor who appeared in The Avengers, another failed Marvell series starring mostly Caucasian actors, said she believes Luke Cage was canceled because of “creative difficulties.”

Coltrane remains convinced, however, that Marvell pulled the plug on the show because “nobuddy want to see no African-American man kick ass, especially in The Big Apple. That be why Marvell cancel Black Panther & Crew, too: the comic book show a bunch of black superheroes kicking ass, and neither the comic book industry nor Hollywood can sell that vision of America for more than a couple of seasons or a couple of issues at a time.”

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
