Awesome: Luke Cage: Hero for Hire

  • From issue #9 of Luke's first ongoing: Doctor Doom has left town to avoid paying Luke $200. Luke does what any self-respecting hero for hire would do in these circumstances: he breaks into the Baxter Building, punches the Thing, convinces Reed Richards to lend him a plane, flies to Latveria, gets caught up in a robot rebellion led by an alien, and beats up Doom until he gets his money, and helps quash the rebellion. Luke gets his $200 and Dr. Doom's respect. Moral of the story: do not welch on Luke Cage.
