Seahawks linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis has had enough. He’s reportedly being compared to a rather handsome, powerhouse of a man who is bulletproof and can’t be taken down — Luke Cage. And Pierre-Louis isn’t taking it anymore.

Luke Cage, of course, is Netflix’s latest hit show, based off of the Marvel Comics character. Netflix debuted the show on September 30. It immediately garnered rave reviews, locking itself in as one of the year’s greatest TV hits.

The superhero is bullet proof, extremely strong, and can punch through walls or stop speeding cars. The character dates back to the ’70s, but the latest face of Cage is actor Mike Colter. Colter is 40 years old, 6’3″ and hails from South Carolina. He has appeared in a range of TV shows from “The Good Wife” to “Jessica Jones.”

Pierre-Louis, 24, is 6′ and hails from Connecticut. He’s played for the Seahawks since 2014 after playing for Boston College.

What do you think? Does Pierre-Louis hold any resemblance to Colter the actor?
