**Spoilers from The Defenders Below**
During The Defenders, Misty Knight has her right arm hacked off by one of the five fingers of the hand and Colleen Wing’s former sensei, Bakuto.
The scene left many comic book fans excited because in the comics, Misty Knight is known for her bionic arm. Now that excitement comes to fruition with one of the first images released for Luke Cage Season 2. The image debuted at Entertainment Weekly and showcases Misty Knight with a bionic arm.
It’s unclear how Misty Knight (Simone Missick) obtains the bionic arm although she was recovering in a hospital owned by Danny Rand (Finn Jones). In the comics, Misty Knight loses her arm in a terrorist attack. However, thanks to technology from Tony Stark and Stark International she receives a bionic arm that grants her superhuman strength as well as other upgraded weaponry. It includes energy blasts, gravity fields, and the ability to control robots.
It’s more than likely because of the separation between the Netflix series and the MCU, she won’t be receiving the bionic from Stark Industries. More than likely, she will receive it from Rand Corporation given her stay at Danny Rand’s hospital and Danny Rand’s prominent role as Iron Fist in the Netflix shows.
Luke Cage Season 2 will have 13 episodes. It will see the return of Mike Colter as Luke Cage, Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, and Theo Rossi as Shades. They will be joined by newcomers Mustafa Shakir as John McIver and Gabrielle Dennis as Tilda Johnson.
Luke Cage Season 2 is expected to premiere sometime in 2018.
