In the comics, Luke is not invulnerable to damage, he's just extremely resistant. His skin and bones are more dense than most conventional metals, so normal gunfire and weapons just bounce off. (I believe it's usually classified as being stronger than titanium, though that might be understating it.) Even with this extreme resistance to injury, Cage still ...

We know very little, since there was exactly one throw-away line in one show, but since (until we know otherwise) Luke Cage occurs in the same universe as all the other MCU shows, we know that Obama was not president during Luke Cage, as you pointed out: the president at the time as Matthew Ellis. We have no idea who was president before him (in fact, I don'...

Luke's physical capabilities are a particular slice of nigh-invulnerability centered around damage resistance, superhuman strength, enhanced stamina and recovery. However, this invulnerability does not cover environmental extremes or psychological behaviors which can be used as handles to manipulate Cage. Luke Cage's powers on Earth-616 Luke's serum and ...

In the Luke Cage series, he is shot by a bullet created with Chitauri metal fragments that is able to pierce his skin, so presumably surgical equipment made with exotic materials such as this might suffice. In any case, he undergoes surgery later in the series to remove said bullet fragments. To do this the original experiment that gave him his powers is ...

We never get any explanation for what happened during the period between Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, but the best explanation for why Cage was working at Pops is that he had gone into hiding after the Kilgrave affair. Remember that Cage was a fugitive from the law. He had sunk all of his money into opening his bar and trying to keep a "low profile". Also, ...

We don't know Neither Marvel nor Netflix has published the age of Luke Cage as he appears in the television series Marvel's Jessica Jones. Also, his age does not come up in any dialogue in the show. I suspect, however, that Cage is intended to be slightly older than Jones, given that the actor who plays Cage, Mike Colter, is 39 years old (at time of ...

Not much would happen. In JJ (Jessica Jones), Claire needed to reduce intracranial pressure because Jessica managed to injure him enough to knock him out. She had to go through the eye socket to get there. EDIT: In the Luke Cage series:

Note: so far, I watched the Defenders Season 1 and I am currently watching the first season of Jessica Jones. I will edit my answer as I progress in the show. I didn't plan to finish watching Luke Cage past the third episode. tl;dr: Jessica is consistently shown to be stronger than Luke Cage. Let's take a third character as a reference before comparing ...

Luke obtained his pub (probably) sometime after escaping his prison, before meeting Jessica. First lets get the watching order in place: "Luke Cage" is third in chronological order in the MCU, after "Daredevil Season 1" and "Jessica Jones". Now lets get things in chronological order: Luke is a policeman in Savannah, Georgia. He gets sentenced to prison ...

Netflix: Jessica If you're referring to the TV show, Jessica appears to be a bit stronger. She is shown lifting & stopping vehicles with little effort, whereas Luke must exert himself to lift smaller objects like debris. Comics: Luke In the comic books, however, there is no comparison. Luke, in the comics, is FAR stronger than his wife. According to ...
