Back to bed Slade goes, only to be awoken again by his radio. Remember how I mentioned that it was a gimmick that played stuff to let you know the era we’re about to visit? Well, it’s now playing, and I don’t even know if my brain can convince my fingers to type this, DISCO MUSIC. That can mean only one thing: we’re about to enter THE FUTURE. Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present to you this film’s version of the Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. Or as I like to call him... THE DISCO PIMP OF CHRISTMAS FUTURE!
"The Luke Cage comic had some problems. He had all the rage of a revolutionary 70s black man, but angry black men in the 70s didn't write no jive funny books. And from the looks of his jibba jabba, I don't think they even had one around to do part-time consulting. So at any given time, Luke Cage may or may not have been saying things that mean anything. Then this nonsense moon language was sent to people even more square where they put it through a filter to make sure it was rated G. This may be why every panel of every issue, Luke Cage punctuates his sentences by putting his fist through all nearby objects. Because it's hard to express your anger at the establishment when your mouth only forms kindergarten Madlibs."
Chris “Say, Jim! WOOO! That’s a BAD OUT-FIT! WOOOO!” Seriously, I love that guy. He is the best character in this movie. Literally the only way it could be better is if it was actually Ric Flair. I love that he’s the first person to ever see Superman fly, and his response is just “WOOOO!”
David: I love how that totally clashes with the ’40s aesthetic, too.
