Dicuss hw you want Cage to look costume wise.
Probably something more recent from him rather than the old look. Not that I ever really considered his looks to necessarily be costumes as much as outfits.
the four one
Something that's not stereotypically black gang member.
If he does have a costume, hopefully they base it off of this:
A yellow T-shirt, a pair of jeans, a cool looking belt and some sunglasses - that'll do.
Yeah, I'd be perfectly happy with the t-shirt look myself.
How would you explain Cages fondness of the outfit?
Yeah, the yellow T-shirt look works fine for me.
+1 that's the perfect look for Power Man.
Yvonne is awsome. I miss the good Ole Chuck days.
Leather jacket as part of his outfit.
Yellow disco shirt or bust.
Hm. bracelets or no?
I like the Marvel Now version as a costume but jeans, t-shirt, leather jacket, & shades for just street wear.
Something like this would be ideal:
The outfit, not the model, obviously.
I was reading an article that mostly was comparing the traditional portrayal of Luke Cage to Bendis's portrayal. However, Part 2 makes a good defense of the traditional costume (at least, if they go the Heroes for Hire route):
Part 1 is an interesting read for some discussion of what makes Luke Cage the character he is. But it wasn't really on point for this topic, so I'll just leave it as a link.
That's pretty much what I think, an athletic shirt, though maybe one with a bit more interesting an original design than just flat yellow, but that's not necessary. I pictured him seeing it as a marketing image, the yellow shirt makes him stand out and he buys them in bulk as his "uniform" for his Hero for Hire business. Something simple, practical, and unique
I would find it funny if at one point he try's the third one out. Could make for a hilarious scene!
Having seen Daredevil, I'd actually like him to have some sort of proper costume
the costuming should be able to win awards.
I'm totally fine with Cage never wearing a costume, and at some point he'll simply wear a yellow shirt.
Luke Cage 'costume' in the comics was barely even a a costume for a good reason.
Cage wore the yellow short and headband costume as a marketing gimmick. Beyond that reason there was never really a need for him to wear a costume.
It isn't like Luke Cage needs to dress a bat to scare his enemies or needs a suit of armour to protect himself. The lack of a real costume suited Luke Cage man of the people character. Cage is a hero who could walk down your local street and you can talk to him. Cage isn't one of those slightly removed superheroes.
No need for cage to have a costume. Leave that to DD and iron fist.
I do think he should have a bit of a costume. Just some small elements that go beyond everyday dress. He could have the CAGE belt or a chain belt, arm bracers, fingerless gloves, unique boots and things like that.
I'd give him the chain belt and a yellow shirt. but thats it i think.
