"Misty was seriously injured preventing a bomb attack back when she was a police officer with the 'NYPD'. Her right arm was amputated and rather than take a desk job, she resigned from the police force.

"'Tony Stark' provided her with a bionic arm which endowed her superhuman strength..." 

"Luke Cage" debuts September 30, 2016 on Netflix.

"Iron Fist" will debut in 2017.
