Luke Cage: A disgrace to Harlem, a useless stereotype & he had a kid with a white woman.

Black Panther: A smart kind African king & is married to a beautiful & strong black woman.

Black Panther all the damn f*cking way.

Cage done well is a license to print money.

Cage done mediocre is a license to print money.

Black Panther is a better character but there are more fantasy elements that make the character a bit harder to connect with.

Cage is simple: Shaft with Superpowers.

Black Panther is Batman as Genius Warrior King of a Hidden Technologically Advanced African Nation.

Even if you dumb it down to Black Panther is Batman/The Phantom as an African King you lose much of the characters world.

Not saying its canít be done well-its just not dead simple as Cage is.

Love the Panther, but Cage get my vote.I like the direction Luke has been going in over the last few years.  The character's been developed more than he'd been in decades.  Props to BMB.

Panther's the guy I'd want to be.

Cage is the guy I'd want to watch my back.

hmm.. the weird way my mind works, I'd have to have some additional context to the question-

what character do you like the most right now?
  Cage, as a regular figure in the New Avengers.
if either had a new ongoing series, whose would you subscribe to?
  Cage, since we've recently had an enjoyable Panther series.
who'd make for a great 65-episode animated series?
  Panther, the most 'natural' opportunity for globe-trotting (and galaxy-hopping) episodes, multiple guest heroes of all kinds..
who'd make for a great, done-in-one movie?
  Assuming an ambitious budget was enabled, Panther.
who'd you want to have your back in a street-fight?
  Luke.  bullet-proof and bench-presses trucks.

So, based on my unscientific criteria, it's Luke Cage by a slim margin.   8)

(by the way, I really hope that Mr. Reggie's team-up arc gets animated- Panther, Cage, Blade, Dr. Voodoo, Pulsar..)
