In the comics, Luke Cage was born Carl Lucas, and as a young teen joined the mafia and ended up in jail. He received his powers as a result of a human cellular regeneration experiment he underwent while in prison. His powers include superhuman strength and durability and extremely dense skin and muscle tissue, which makes him highly resistant to injuries. He worked as a mercenary for a while under the alias Luke Cage before meeting and befriending the Fantastic Four and starting his participation in hero work, taking the hero name Power Man. Cage later teamed up with Iron Fist, forming with him the superhero team Heroes for Hire. He has also been part of the Avengers and the Thunderbolts, and is currently part of the Mighty Avengers.
A Netflix series starring Luke Cage located in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was released in 2016, and has been renewed for a second season. Cage was portrayed by Mike Colter in Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and The Defenders.
