1. Cage and Satanna lay at the feet of Man-Thing. There is blood around them, on them, but otherwise they are back and safe in The Raft. They are both panting while lying down and it looks like they’ve been through hell. In fact, they’ve just experienced worse, but at least they survived. Man-Thing kind of looks unscathed.
Caption-Cage: When you’ve got indestructible skin there’s not a lot that actually scares you.
2. Cage looks across at Satanna, she doesn’t look as cocky as usual. She was scared, she only just survived.
Caption-Cage: You might fear for others but you don’t fear for yourself. Nothing can harm you.
3. Cage reaches across a hand to touch Satanna’s face.
Caption-Cage: Such power numbs you. Makes you forget pain…
Cage: You’re okay, you’re okay.
4. Cage and Satanna kiss under the hulking mass of the Man-Thing.
Caption-Cage: Forget you can cause it as well.
This script comes from the thought that no relationship is perfect. Luke Cage loves Jessica Jones, I have little doubt of that, and I’m certain he’s a great husband and brilliant father, but anyone can make a mistake. Look at the celebrities of this generation (and plenty before), they find fidelity so difficult. They’re on the road a lot, they have the opportunity constantly, and in the end something breaks through the gaps. I kind of want to see that happen to Cage just because it would seem incredibly real. The guy was dubbed a pants man back in Alias and he’s certainly got the charisma to draw plenty of eyes. Surely something will eventually go wrong. They should show more superheroes cheating because it feels so realistic to their situation. Hell, Matt Murdock nearly always kisses someone else while in a relationship. These things happen. I don’t think it would make Cage a bad person, and I’m sure they’d work through it, but it just feels like it would happen – especially up at the Raft with all these scantily clad women.
Unless my wife is reading, and then this is purely fiction and so unbelievable – 1 star.
