"You mess with us and you're not going to jail. You're going to the hospital"

―Luke Cage

Luke Cage (also known as Power Man, though he dislikes being referred to as such) is a Hero for Hire and member of The Defenders.


He is a man of action. He likes to take down any villain who may dare try to take him head-on. He dislikes to be called "Power Man" for some other reasons and prefered to be called by his real name instead. As a member of Heroes for Hire, he is constantly demanding cash for his heroics. When temporal anomolies happended in New York he thought of charging the city. After the New Avengers stopped Kang, he sent Iron Man a bill for his actions.


Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Luke Cage has an indestructible skin making him a highly durable ally (as well as a deadly foe) in combat. With his "unbreakable" skin, he can withstand powerful blows and attacks from other foes and is stronger than any superhumans but not be as strong as the Hulk or Thor. He is quite skilled in hand-to-hand combat as he was able to take down Mangler and other Crossfire's henchmen.


  • Luke's catchphrase is "Sweet Christmas".
