    Can either particularly hurt each other? Maaaybe Luke can hurt Translucent, but he won't be able to see him

    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"

    Translucent’s skin is basically indestructible but it doesn’t mean his bones are unbreakable or his organs are un-squishy. I imagine Like could crush him or pull his limbs apart.... IF he could find him.

    Translucent isn’t hurting Luke, I wouldn’t think.

    This doesn't prove much. Translucent was completely unharmed, even by the initial car smashing him into a wall.

    Dude was basically "losing with style".

    Yeah.

    Luke is finding him just fine.

    Even if this fight took place anywhere else, it isn't like Translucent is a smart fighter. He picked up a TV allowing Butcher to know exactly where to drive his car. He then grappled with Butcher, allowing the normal human to figure out where he was and then spit blood on him to find him a lot easier. Translucent completely relies on his indestructible skin to protect him, which is why he lost a fight to two ordinary humans and later got killed by them.

    Cage on the other hand, wades through mobs of non-powered baddies and demolishes them effortlessly. He even got shot with another Judas bullet after the first one failed to kill him (on account that Luke's insides are as tough as his skin) and it did nothing. It isn't even funny how much more powerful, durable, and smarter MCU Cage is than Translucent.

    Guy1's right, Transculent is getting wrecked.

    The only reason Translucent lost was because of electricity. He would have killed Butcher if Hughie hadn't come from behind and electrocuted him. Nothing else harmed him. Not to mention, Luke is more like a lumbering ox and Translucent, can you know, move out of the way. While Luke has to keep looking for sand disturbances.

    Having said that, there's now way for Translucent to hurt Cage. So, it may take a long time but Cage might be able to get a hold of him. If he can bear hug him to death that's Cage's way to win. But don't know if that would work.

    Cage could easily choke Translucent out if he ever got a hold of him, while the opposite cannot be said. T still needs to breathe.

    Not to mention that Cage is easily strong enough to hold Translucent face down into the sand with one hand once he does get a hold of him (which will be pretty quick, since Translucent is not a smart fighter) and suffocating the perv.

    Hughie couldn't reach Translucent. Butcher had to kick Translucent to Hughie. Both knew where Translucent was because Translucent allowed Butcher to mark him.

    Nothing else harmed him.
    Until the next episode, where Hughie killed him by exploding C4 inside his body. Translucent was far from unkillable.

    Not to mention, Luke is more like a lumbering ox and Translucent, can you know, move out of the way. While Luke has to keep looking for sand disturbances.
    The guy who spends most of his show positioning himself away from innocents and allowing bad guys to shoot him, then waits for them to stare in awe that their bullets did nothing before casually swatting them into unconsciousness with minimal effort as to avoid doing collateral damage is actually the exact opposite of a lumbering ox.

    A lumbering ox would instead advertise where he is even though he has a distinct advantage over his enemies, like picking up a TV, yelling at the top of his lungs in the middle of a fight to give his opponent a great idea of where he is, or grappling with an opponent, thus providing them with precise knowledge of exactly where he is.
