Nicholas Cage has a well documented love of comic books. His stage name borrows from Luke Cage. While filming the movie "Ghost Rider", he had to cover up his Ghost Rider tattoo.

When it was first announced sometime in Q1 of 2020, I think it brought a beacon of hope for most Arkham Horror players who were stuck in quarantine, hoping to get more content for this game and FFG delivered.
