Cage

 CAGE   (Marvel, 1992–1993)

™ and ©1992 Marvel Entertainment Group

Once upon a time, a street kid got framed for a narcotics rap. He was sent to Seagate Prison where he signed up for a medical experiment in a desperate try to get his sentence reduced. The experiment changed him, giving him steel-hard strength and amazing strength. When he was released from prison, he decided to call himself “Luke Cage, Hero for Hire” and later “Power Man.”

He went into business with another super-hero named Iron Fist, calling their venture “Heroes for Hire.” Business was good for a while, but it eventually went sour. Then Iron Fist was killed, and Cage was framed again, this time for murder.

Now he’s back—not as Power Man, but as Cage. He’s sick of getting fooled with, and he’s not going to take it any more.
