In season 2 of Luke Cage, you can see a children's drawing on the wall of Pop's Barbershop.

Given that the Defenders series is chock full of easter eggs, I figured this random drawing must be intentional.

So, who or what is this a drawing of?

See below for an enhanced and cropped version of the drawing.

  • I'm so tempted to say it's Rom the SpaceKnight, just to make all the fans' hearts quicken... Commented Jun 25, 2018 at 13:00
  • (Rom doesn't have that level of asymmetry, even taking into account that this appears to be a child's drawing.)

  • @Gothamite24 This screenshot is from Season 2 Episode 4. It very well be in other episodes too or even in the first season.

1 Answer 1


Jay from LEGO Ninjago

Of all things this could have been, it appears to be the character Jay from the Ninjago TV series and toy LEGO line. From this photo posted on the r/lego subreddit it seems pretty obvious.

Jay from LEGO Ninjago

Added to that, the completely round, open circle hands and bent arms heavily suggests a LEGO figure. Furthermore, Jay is referred to as the "Ninja of Lightning" and has lightning based powers, which are present in the drawing.

    I wasn't expecting this to be the answer in the slightest and was honestly hoping it was some deeper hint. Nope! The real question is how did this end up here?
