LOS ANGELES (AP) — Superhero Luke Cage can thank Netflix’s engineers for coming to his rescue.

The streaming service was down for more than two hours Saturday, one day after the debut of a live-action series with the Marvel Comics hero.

In a Twitter message posted at about 3:30 p.m. EDT Saturday, Netflix acknowledged it was aware of streaming issues and was working quickly to solve them.

Netflix users had begun complaining on Twitter that the site was down about a half-hour earlier.

Shortly before 6 p.m. EDT, Netflix tweeted that not all superheroes wear capes, adding, “Engineers to the rescue. We’re back.”

Netflix did not immediately respond to an email request for details on the problem, including how widespread it was or its cause.

One thought on “Did ‘Luke Cage’ Break Netflix In Its Debut?

  1. I was disappointment with the repeat use of the “N”. I believe we had the opportunity to promote a positive image of a black superhero and we as a people failed. I would be embarrassed to recommend this to not only my black friends but my diverse groups of friends as well. I watched all 13 episodes this weekend and I only felt comfortable discussing the program with the black people on my team. When I told them about the use of the “N” word they too were disappointed. I thought the story line was very violent and again portrays the black race (African American) as thugs. I think it was a lot of unnecessary violence. I think the most disappointing comment I made was to the mother of two of my grandsons who was very exciting of the thought of a black superhero. I had to tell her that Luke Cage is not a superhero you want to expose you boys to.
