Luke Cage is perhaps one of my favorite comic book heroes. He is a young crime fighter still living in New York City. He is part of the Harlem mob, an underground criminal organization that serve as secret protectors of Harlem and its inhabitants. He works with ex-hedge warden Shades, and occasionally fights crime boss Louis Dredd.
While this may seem like a typical comic book hero, there are actually some major differences between Luke Cage and most current comic book heroes. For starters, Luke Cage has super powers. The main ones are: flying, strength, martial arts ability, and he can also regenerate health, and in some instances heal. These are things that don't come close to many of today's super heroes.
It is stated that Luke is not exactly what he seems. In one of the earliest appearances of his, he is disguised as a black Labrador Retriever. As it turns out, he is a streetwise and wise criminal with a deep hatred for crime. He is constantly shown smoking cigarettes, and he appears to be extremely happy with his criminal lifestyle.
In the very first appearance of Luke Cage, he has a twin brother named Cage. Cage is described as being the "strong and silent type", by putting his heart and mind into what he does, he is able to achieve great results. However, he has several bouts of insanity while working for his family. He is the only character to have displayed emotion throughout the entire comic.
Throughout the decades, many different versions of Luke Cage have been featured in comics. The modern version is an African American man. His relationships with female characters are often explored, but rarely do they take the form of love. Most often, he is fighting crime with a pair of ex-law enforcement officers, Shades and Frank Shamrock. He is also known to have some sort of link with the future superhero Spiderman.
In the latest series of " Luke Cage" comics, the character has taken on another identity. This time, he is a freelance photographer living in New York City. Much of this comic is centered around his battles with various criminals, most notably the villain Stick. He also has a sister named Rita, who also shares some of his interests. The modern version of Cage is a very skilled and talented fighter, capable of defeating many of today's villains.
There have been many different versions of Luke Cage throughout the years. He was featured in the first two "Man Comics" series, as well as in the latest series of "Uncle Ben" comics. He is an important member of both the Marvel Universe and DC Universe, and is often depicted as an ally to both of these iconic heroes. He has many friends and foes throughout the course of his comic book history, and he is even featured in several storylines throughout the entirety of "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes". Many of his friends and enemies are Spider-Man, Green Lantern, the Hulk, and Wolverine.
The " Luke Cage" comic has become one of the most popular among readers of Marvel Comics. It is written by Greg Ruckley, who is responsible for crafting many of the early memorable stories of the X-Men. He has also created a number of supporting cast characters, including Shades, a girl who works with Cage that is shown in several occasions, and Nursemaid. The female character is often shown as a strong and confident woman that is very supportive of Cage's heroics. He also co-created the blockbuster "Wolverine" series with writer Kurt Busiek.
