By Michal Schick | Edited by Karen Rought

Luke Cage season 2 is just around the corner, but it’s Misty Knight and Colleen Wing who have our attention in this new clip.

Anticipation is high for Luke Cage season 2, which will offer Marvel fans their first trip back to Harlem since The Defenders. But while Luke’s new responsibilities as Harlem’s Hero are sure to offer tantalizing twists and turns, the coming season promises an even more exciting new development.

The Daughters of the Dragon are coming, people.

That’s right — the recently-one-armed Detective Misty Knight and brilliant martial artist Colleen Wing are finally joining forces. Fast friends and partners in Marvel comics, this long-awaited pairing of two unspeakably badass women of color can’t come soon enough. Netflix seems aware of this, whetting fans’ appetites in a thrilling new clip that also teaches us a thing or two.

Lesson one: Maybe don’t call Misty Knight a bitch… ever.

Let’s also take a moment to appreciate how incredibly epic Misty is; this lady is knocking dudes around like bowling pins with just one arm!

And it looks like it’s lucky for Luke that Misty and Colleen have his bullet-proof back. The official trailer for Luke Cage season 2 makes it clear that it’s tough being a hero… especially when a nemesis pops out of nowhere, and he has your number exactly.

Fair enough, this one is Luke’s show… so is anyone else hoping that Misty and Colleen get their own show ASAP? Let’s do this, Marvel!

Luke Cage season 2 smashes onto Netflix on June 22.
