Misty Knight

Misty Knight is a name you might have heard around lately. She's one of the leading characters in the new Netflix series 'Luke  Cage'. What you probably didn't know is that she has a history in the Marvel comicbooks as wel. Today's post we'll shine a light on her history in the comic's so you know what you might see in the future development of the character in the series. Weather or not Marvel will do something with the backstory of Misty is still a mysterie.

Mercedes Knight was born and raised in New York city. When she got older she decided she wanted to be a police officer and she soon followed her dreams and rose the ranks becoming a lieutenant. In a unfortunate accident where she tried to get rid of a bomb she lost her arm. In that time she had already made a name for herself and many heroes already knew her. Tony Stark was one of those heroes and he felt sorry for the woman so he made her a bionic arm. The arm was stronger than any other arm but she wasn't able to lift too heavy stuff since the rest of her body still needed to support the machine.

The police had placed her behind a desk and she soon got sick of it and started a private investigation office. In her time working as a private investigator she crossed paths with both Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

Her story in the comics is different from the series which is kind off logical since Netflix isn't able to bring a Tony Stark or any other MCU heroes in the play. Never the less I think it's great they use less known Marvel characters as side roles instead of just bringing in random characters. I for one am very excited to see what else Netflix has in store for us!
