#41 is the debut of Goldbug. He’s a minor villain, but he has the distinction of first appearing in Luke Cage’s book and not having a name that’s a spin on racial stereotyping. From here, he’ll disappear until appearing in The Hulk in about five years.
Marv showed Luke to be a ladies’ man. Here, he made that nice Claire Temple girl cry. Shame on you, Luke.
