Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we look at a time when Doctor Doom realized he shouldn’t underestimate Luke Cage…
In Luke Cage, Hero for Hire #9, written by Steve Englehart and drawn by George Tuska, Luke Cage borrows a jet plane from the Fantastic Four to go see a Doctor about a bill.
Doctor Doom had hired Cage a few issues earlier and stiffed him the $200 fee, and Cage was not having it.
He arrived in Latveria during a coup and soon made his way to Doom’s lair…
Cage was not going to let this guy kill Doom in cold blood, so he saved Doom’s life but then refused Doom’s offer to go after the guy who shot at Doom, saying he had no beef with him…
Englehart sure knew how to do offbeat!!
Of course, “the” moment is the “Where’s my money, honey?” bit. That’s hilarious.
