While serving prison time for a crime he didn't commit, former gang member Carl Lucas volunteered for an experiment that gave him enhanced strength and unbreakable skin. He promptly used his new abilities to escape prison, returning to his boyhood streets of Harlem.
Rather than returning to crime, he took the name Luke Cage and became a mercenary "hero for hire," using his powers to help anyone who could afford his asking price.
Eventually cleared of his criminal charges, Cage has distinguished himself in various superhero groups (including, most recently, the New Avengers), but in the end, he's nobody's man but his own. More information...
