With Luke Cage being one of the first black superheroes to get his own comic book, it makes sense that this excellent fan-made opening title sequence -- created by YouTuber Efe Balun -- for the upcoming Netflix Series features prominent figures from the black community, such as Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, and Nelson Mandela.

"My first concept was to animate various paintings of Jacob Lawrence and Frank Morrison to create an animated canvas," Balun explained. "Then it shifts to 'power in the eye' idea. I imagine, each episode showcase different figures from long list of real heroes from black history to represent power inside the Power Man - Luke Cage."

By the way, if you're wondering what the score is, that's Dr. Dre's 1999 song "What's The Difference."

After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city - forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

Luke Cage stars Mike Colter ("Marvel's Jessica Jones," "The Good Wife") as the charismatic lead character, Mahershala Ali ("House of Cards") as the villainous Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes,Alfre Woodard ("12 Years a Slave," "Annabelle") local Harlem politician Mariah Dillard, Simone Missick ("Ray Donovan") as Harlem police detective Misty Knight, Theo Rossi ("Sons of Anarchy," "Bad Hurt") as the ruthless criminal Shades, Frank Whaley ("Ray Donovan," "Pulp Fiction") as hard-nosed NYPD detective Rafael Scarfe, Rosario Dawson reprising her "Marvel's Daredevil" role as nurse Claire Temple, and Sonia Braga ("Kiss of the Spider Woman," "Moon Over Parador," "Brothers & Sisters") as Claire Temple's mother, Soledad Temple.

Cheo Hodari Coker ("SouthLAnd," "Ray Donovan") wrote the series' first two episodes in addition to serving as showrunner and Executive Producer.

Luke Cage comes to Netflix on Sept. 30, 2016.
