Luke Cage is from the Yost Universe series The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Luke Cage, formerly Power Man, is a superhero and part of both the Heroes for Hire and New Avengers. He is mostly seen with his partner Iron Fist.


He formed the Heroes for Hire along with Danny Rand, also known as Iron Fist. He used to by the name Power Man, but for reasons unknown he no longer likes that name.

They were hired by Hank Pym to investigate the theft of his Ant-Man technology. They investigated a robbery at a bank operated by HYDRA. They tracked the robber to the thugs Mangler and Scythe. He defeated Mangler while Iron Fist fought Scythe. They found the robber but were defeated. With Pym's help, they tracked the new Ant-Man to a hotel where the man was revealed to be Scott Lang. Lang explained that he turned to a life of crime to help his daughter Cassie. When Crossfire kidnapped his daughter he stole the Ant-Man technology to get her back. Lang escaped and they followed him to a warehouse. Luke, Iron Fist, and Pym defeated Crossfire's thugs while Lang defeated the boss and rescued his daughter. Iron Fist offered Lang a position on the Heroes for Hire while Luke wondered where the bill should be sent.

Former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury investigated Cage to see if he was a Skrull.

Following the apparent death of Pym, Luke and Danny attended his funeral. Pym later reappeared using the name Yellowjacket.

After the Avengers disappeared, Luke and Iron Fist were recruited into the New Avengers.

When Galactus and his heralds came to Earth, Luke joined the Avengers, New Avengers, Fantastic Four, and many other heroes in defending the planet.


Luke was voiced by Christopher B. Duncan.
