Mustafa Shakir Visits This Week in Marvel to Give Some Background on Bushmaster

The latest antagonist of 'Marvel's Luke Cage' says a lot went into creating the new nemesis.

Readers of the Luke Cage comics know that Bushmaster and Power Man have a history. Bringing Bushmaster aka John McIver to the screen for "Marvel's Luke Cage" on Netflix for its second season involved a collaborative process between showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and the man playing the super-powered foe, Mustafa Shakir. Shakir stopped by This Week in Marvel to discuss that process and what he brought to his character -- including his own hometown roots!

Check out clips of Ryan and Jamie's interview with Mustafa here!
