I like Power Man a lot - He's got a unique back story and takes no guff from anyone, be it Dr. Doom or Captain America. I like Iron Fist, he has a great look, just the right amount of power and had a recent excellent run by Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction. Together, they really shine, however. It's really a great example of where two characters created independently can come together and truly compliment each other, and one argument in favor of shared universes.
While Iron Fist had that recent successful run, Power Man - excuse me, Luke Cage - has not been as appealing to me lately, despite a huge push by Brian Michael Bendis. He has completely changed in appearance, married and became a father, and after a stint with the New Avengers is currently heading up the Thunderbolts. But nothing in this new direction has clicked with me. I'd like to see him adopt his heroic moniker again and wear something closer to a superhero outfit... and maybe hang out with Danny Rand a little more! Sorry, I'm old school.
