    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.
