Harlem hasn’t had a superhero like this since Killa Cam. The latest trailer for Marvel’s new Luke Cage series finds our protagonist, played by Mike Colter, using his talents to eradicate Uptown’s crime problem. Along the way, we see cameos from the gorgeous Simone Missick, playing Misty Knight, and Daredevil’s voice of reason, nurse Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson).

Show creator Cheo Coker, who wrote for outlets likeΒ The Source and Vibe in his younger days, immerses the show in black culture with the music choices (Isaac Hayes’ “Walk On By”) and subtle set pieces (Cage reading a Walter Mosley novel).

Luke Cage premieres on Netflix September 30.
