Check out this killer SDCC 2016 poster promoting Netflix and Marvel's upcoming Luke Cage series, with a comic-style image of Power Man flexing his superheroic physique.  Mike Colter will star in this live-action adaptation of the iron-skinned Marvel character, which begins streaming all 13 episodes of Season 1 on Sept. 30.  Designed by Marvel Entertainment chief creative officer Joe Quesada, these posters will be available to fans at the Marvel booth at this week's San Diego Comic-Con.

“There’s always great pressure with superhero posters,” said Quesada. “You’ve got one shot to encapsulate a character with a pose that’s provocative and that you hope will someday be iconic. Mike [Colter] gives Luke a smoldering strength. He’s sexy and calming. And the ladies love it.”

What do you think of Quesada's first Luke Cage poster, and will you punch up this new original Netflix series in September?
