Only two or so of Marvel’s Netflix Defenders have costumes we expect to see during major events, to say nothing of some otherwise-memorable looks drafted during their individual series. Now, two Defenders and their closest allies have hit the street in new set photos, looking very much as we remember.

As we’ve seen with The Avengers before them, the coming teamup between Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist is bound to rope in some of the supporting cast.

The recent release of Luke Cage may have crystallized how out of touch Marvel’s Defenders series feel with the current MCU film slate, a problem not likely to get better with Doctor Strange splitting New York into multiple dimensions. Timing makes it difficult to write any of the four Netflix stars into the films, but with Infinity War on the horizon, new comments from Kevin Feige again dash our hopes.

The dust is still settling on whether Luke Cage marks the most Power-ful of Netflix’s Defender series, but certainly working in its favor is the rich complement of musicians, some of whom even contribute to the soundtrack. Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker apparently even paid tribute to Prince in an early episode, hoping the legendary musician would cameo.

Anyone who made it through the entirety of Luke Cage knows that the Marvel Netflix series paid homage to the character’s 1970s roots where possible, but primarily focused on more topical implications of a bulletproof black superhero.
