Avengers Poster #138 Luke Cage Power Man by Stuart Immonen


SKU: 14108 Category:


Luke Cage (born Carl Lucas and also called Power Man) obtained his powers in an accident that left him with near-impervious skin and superhuman strength. Luke Cage possesses superhuman strength and stamina, and has extremely dense skin and muscle tissue which render him highly resistant to physical injury. Cage possesses these abilities as a result of his participation in dangerous, and highly controversial, experiments while in prison. The cellular regeneration experiment has fortified the various tissues of Cage’s body, granting him a high degree of resistance to injury via skin that is as strong as titanium and can resist high caliber bullets, puncture wounds, corrosives, and extreme temperatures and pressures without sustaining damage (it has been noted that he has skin as “hard as steel”, but when he went up against an adversary that was going to shoot him with bullets that “can pierce steel”, he relates that the “steel” hardness of his skin is just a saying and its much tougher than thatvolume & issue needed). Despite this, it is still possible to cause him injury. For example, it is possible to injure him with adamantium weapons. However, it has been shown that the supernatural fangs of a vampire are not able to pierce his skin.
