Just because she’s not the title character doesn’t mean Misty Knight is anyone’s sidekick.
In the latest promo for Luke Cage Season 2, Simone Missick’s character takes center stage, reminding everyone she’s not to be messed with. The short clip also offers the closest look yet at her new cybernetic right arm.
FYI. Misty’s no sidekick. pic.twitter.com/Un1xXG0Oln

Misty lost her arm last in the finale of The Defenders miniseries while confronting Bakuto, one of the leaders of The Hand and the former mentor to Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick). The addition of the cybernetic arm, which moves Misty closer to her comic book counterpart, has been anticipated by fans since her television debut.

A clip released earlier this week shows Misty and Colleen taking on a bar full of street toughs. While the New York City police detective more than holds her own in the barroom brawl, she is noticeably missing her arm during the fight.
As seen in this new promo, Misty has received an upgrade of her own with the promise that, in Season 2, there will be “no holding back.”
Arriving on June 22 on Netflix, the second season of Luke Cage stars Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Theo Rossi, Rosario Dawson, Mustafa Shakir and Gabrielle Dennis.
