Luke Cage has come a long way since his first appearance in the 70's. While I miss his yellow shirt and headband look, I am glad that at least his attitude has remained intact. Cage was one of the first no-nonsense heroes that you could count on to tell it to you straight and you knew would never take any guff from anybody. Nowadays you'll see a lot of characters with the bad boy from the streets attitude, but when Power Man first hit the scene it was quite a new take on superheroes. You had to admire a guy who would march into Latveria and say to Doctor Doom, "Where's my money, honey?!" That takes nerve.
