During his ten years inside Riker’s, he went by the name of Inmate 3457AG15. But on the outside, he was known as Luke ‘The Power Man’ Cage, an urban legend to a people that needed a hero.
Now, he’s been released. But on his first day on the outside, he finds out there’s one hell of a price to being free. He’s been extended a helping hand by childhood chum, Stryker, now mob boss of all of Harlem. He’s been given a very stiff arm by one of the city’s most vicious enforcers, Tombstone. And he’s been given a hard job by Randall Banticoff, a white man with a white wife found dead in a Harlem alleyway. Is Luke Cage destined to be a hero for hire? Or just a chump for a double-crossing set-up?
