Marvel heroine Mercedes “Misty” Knight is set to appear in Netflix’s upcoming Luke Cage series, it has emerged.

Comicbook.com has apparently got the nod from insiders that the Marvel Universe’s superpowered afro-sporting female detective will be appearing as an NYPD officer who is reluctantly partnered with the titular Power Man. Furthermore, Comic Book Resources has claimed that actress Simone Missick has been cast in the role.

No word has yet come from Marvel to confirm the casting, but we’ll update you if there’s any changes or announcements .

Misty Knight has been a fixture of Marvel comics on and off for the last 40 years. After losing her arm in a terrorist bombing in 1975, police officer Knight refuses to take a desk job and quits before receiving a bionic right arm made from vibranium and becoming a PI. She was eventually partnered with Heroes for Hire, at that time only consisting of Power Man and Iron Fist.

Luke Cage is currently filming for a likely 2016 release.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
