'Son of Zorn' suffers from the 'Coneheads' curse

Back in the early days of "Saturday Night Live," sketches with the Coneheads were fan favorites. Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin and Lorraine Newman were a family of aliens that spoke in a weird monotone and, yes, had pointy, circular scalps that apparently inspired their surname.

There’s one point in the new Marvel/Netflix series “Luke Cage” where the titular hero looks exactly like the comic book version of Power Man that I remember from the early 1980s. He’s wearing this bizarre silver tiara, an unbuttoned yellow silk shirt with a wide, disco-era collar, and a pair of silver steel bracelets that cover the middle of his arms up to his wrists.
