For Luke Cage you needed that old woman from Airplane that spoke jive and translated for the black guys.

Very funny, thanks for the laughs.

"Can I get you something?
S'mo fo butter layin' to the bone. Jackin' me up.
I'm sorry I don't understand.
Cutty say he cant hang.
Oh stewardess, I speak jive.
Ohhhh, good.
He said that he's in great pain and he wants to know
if you can help him.
Would you tell him to just relax and I'll be back as
soon as I can with some medicine.
Jus' hang loose blooood. She goonna catch up on the`
rebound a de medcide.
What it is big mamma, my mamma didn't raise no dummy, I
dug her rap.
Cut me som' slac' jak! Chump don wan no help, chump
don git no help. Jive ass dude don got no brains

Now I’m a 51 year-old black male and even I can’t understand the rudiments of that particular strain of jive. Cab Callaway wrote a book on it- "The New Cab Calloway's Hepsters Dictionary: Language of Jive," kind of like the urban dictionary.
I loved it because I grew up around these type males who did in fact speak like this.
You were considered the outsider if you weren’t fluent. I’m sure the black actors enjoyed it more than anyone else in the cast.
Drawing from Luke Cage helped sharpen my skills with regards to surface anatomy; he was my favorite along with the Black Panther, Black Bolt- and Thor.

Arcade was always one of my favorite Marvel villians.  He knew enough not to take himself so damn seriously all the time.  Pluss, he was kind of cute.

Wow.  That was a pretty decent article (cracked or otherwise).  Makes me want to go read some classic claremont uncanny.
