Netflix/Marvel’s Luke Cage is back an we could not be happier. Everyone’s favorite Harlem hero in a hoodie with bulletproof skin and super strength, is back walking the streets. This time around he’s going to need more than super powers to take down the villains that threaten his home turf. In fact it is the villains showcased in the second season of the series that really add the depth and power to the series. Although most of them are larger than life, two of them, Shades (Theo Rossi) and Comanche (Thomas Q. Jones) have actually been intimate with each other.

Shades Luke Cage

Shades, as you recall, is a hired gun who worked for Cottonmouth in the first season, but by the season’s end he aligned himself with Black Mariah (Alfre Woodard), becoming her lieutenant and boy toy. In a surprising twist of events in Season 2, Shades brings on his childhood best friend, Comanche, as his right hand man. As their bond is explored we learn not only did they have each other’s backs, but were intimate while in prison.

Until episode six, “The Basement,” where it is revealed that they were lovers in prison as well as being childhood friends. While Shades has processed their relationship jail as one of comfort in a dark place, Comanche makes it clear that who was in prison wasn’t a cover it’s who he is.

Comanche: We are more than that. Or did you forget that shit, too?

Shades: Inside was inside. Lack of human interaction. Lack of trust. We did what we had to do to keep from going crazy.

Comanche: We didn’t have to do shit. I wanted to. You did, too.

Shades: Life inside is inside. Prison has its own set of rules that no one in the outside world would ever understand. We’re out now. It’s different. I’m different, we’re different.

Comanche: I ain’t different. Inside, outside; I am who I am, B.

Shades: What do you want me to say?

Comanche: Come on, man. Cat’s out here getting their heads cut off. Maybe we survive, maybe we don’t. I’m just saying how I feel.

Shades: I would die for you, Che. That’ll never change. But it is what it is.

For Shades it seems his gay tryst with Comanche was situational for their time in prison. It is not the first time we have heard of guys beign “prison gay.” Theo Rossi has come forward to state that Comanche is in fact the true love of Shades’ life in an interview with SyFy.com:

Caught in the middle of the action is Shades’ long-time friend, partner, and “the love of his life,” Darius “Comanche” Jones (Thomas Q. Jones). Rossi says Comanche was Shades’ heart, his true soulmate, so when Shades finds it necessary to kill Comanche to protect Mariah’s (and his own) interests in Episode 7, “On and On,” he ends up inflicting permanent damage to himself.

Either way this is very progressive. Marvel continues to push the envelope with its characters and Luke Cage. What do you guys think of Shades and Comanche’s relationship? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

We love a good viral video show! Usually “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “Jackass,” or “Ridiculousness” come into mind when we think of them. Thus, we hope this is the beginning of a new gig for Nick and new show for Fox. It will definitely bring some diversity to the content of the network. As you may already know Fox is largely dramas, a few comedies, animated series, and reality shows.

The CW’s line up of DC Comics superhero based series (dubbed “The Arrowverse”) continues to expand as “Stargirl” now joins “Black Lightning,” “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Batwoman,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” and a soon to be filmed series, “Green And The Canaries,” as well as a Superman and Lois Lane centered series.

Stargirl is Courtney Whitmore, a teenage girl armed with “The Cosmic Staff” a weapon that allows her to manipulate and generate various forms of energy and fly. Aided by her stepfather, S.T.R.I.P.E., a former sidekick to the original Starman, she takes on crime and intergalactic threats.

Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. The project focuses on the character that started executive producer Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister, who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.

“There is no other character in comic books more special to me than Stargirl, and after searching far and wide I can say there is no other actor on the planet that embodies her more than Brec Bassinger,” said Johns back when the series was announced. “Brec’s warmth, strength, humor and positive energy are core to who Courtney Whitmore is. I’m so grateful she’s signed on for the role.”

We are here for this Stargirl series. She is one DC Comics more obscure heroines, but is nonetheless a powerhouse. She definitely fits in with The CW’s demography and we can see this being a true hit. What do you guys think of this new superhero series? Will you be watching?
