Read full description of the books:
This volume combines the 1972 origin issue of Luke Cage, Hero For Hire, with a Daredevil/Luke Cage one shot and a New Avengers mini-series from 2010 focusing on Cage. Cage was originally Carl Lucas, wrongly accused convict given the opportunity for early parole if he volunteered for an experiment. The experiment is disrupted by a jerkass guard and Lucas is inadvertently given super strength and bulletproof skin, allowing him to break out of prison. Lucas changes his name, hits the street, and hires himself out as a hero. The Daredevil issue is a quick story from the early days of DD and Cage's careers, matching them up in a friendly fight that turns dangerous. The mini-series, Town Without Pity, shows Cage in Philadelphia, tracking down the attackers of an old friend and digging into the drug trade there. I checked this collection out to get some insight into Luke Cage, who has a Netflix series currently in development.
Cage was created to capitalize on the Blaxploitation films of the '70's, but his character has been modernized and given added depth since that time, remaining popular enough for him to be a staple of the Avengers for the last decade. Despite that, this volume didn't make an impression on me and it seems to be an average showcase at best. The origin was the most interesting and entertaining in its over-the-top obviousness, and the Daredevil match-up was pretty tame and felt limited and unnecessary. The miniseries was decent but mostly notable for showing Cage as a loving husband and father, and borrowing concepts from the early seasons of The Wire.
