This is the article on the character from the main dimension. For the character's vampire counterpart, head to Vampire Power Man.

Luke Cage is the son of Walter and Amanda Cage. Years ago, Luke's parents were working on replicating the super-soldier serum for S.H.I.E.L.D. at a secret facility during a family vacation with their son. On their flight back home, Scorpio, the leader of Zodiac, ambushed them to steal the serum. To protect him, Luke's parents made him drink the serum and pushed him out the plane. As a result, Luke received superhuman strength and indestructible skin, which allowed him to survive the fall. However, the plane exploded with his parents still on it, presumably killing them and leaving an orphaned Luke devastated. Afterwards, Luke approached the director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a close friend of his parents, Nick Fury, who offered him to train with the agency to become a superhero. Luke gives himself the code name "Power Man" after meeting Spider-Man, the leader of their team.
