* CreatorCameo: Brian Michael Bendis drops in in issue 9 the only way he can -- being hauled off by police, proudly proclaiming that a 17-year-old RunningGag is hard to do (namely dragging people into jail and making fun of events going on at the time, something he did periodically in ''ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan'')

** Black Cat may be a villain, but Diamondback's level of violence is a bit too much even for her. She actually [[PetTheDog saves Luke]] by bringing him to a hospital. It's at least partly out of pragmatism though, as killing Luke in such a brutal manner is garantueed to get the entire Superhero community coming after them. She ''does'' state that a good man like Luke deserved better than to die like that.

Luke, on his part, tells her she cant just expect to get out of a hospital bed and declare herself one of the good guys.]]

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: At the end of the first issue of the 2017 iteration, Black Cat reunites Luke Cage with Diamondback, who was thought dead for the longest time. Diamondback puts Cage through a CurbStompBattle and as he constantly smashes Cage's head into the floor, Cat has lost her cool and realized she's done something terrible.

''The Defenders'' is a 2017 series written by Creator/BrianMichaelBendis and illustrated by David Marquez. Unlike the previous [[ComicBook/TheDefenders Defenders]] teams, they are specifically tailored after the roster from [[Series/TheDefenders2017 the Netflix show]], with the four main heroes being ComicBook/LukeCage, ComicBook/IronFist, ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}, and ComicBook/JessicaJones.

It started when Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and Daredevil broke up a drug operation that just happened to be run by Diamondback -- the same Diamondback that, years earlier, had been Luke Cage's arch-enemy and had died. In retaliation for this, Diamondback targets each one of them in their secret identities and shoots Jessica Jones in her office.

After Jessica gets out of the hospital, she, Luke, Danny, and Daredevil team up to find and stop Diamondback and, in the process, form a team to defend the streets.
