Actually, it’s Luke Cage: Hero For Hire #50 and PM&IF #1. This was the first issue where they co-headlined and got the logo they’d keep for their entire run…


The story is largely forgettable, except for the moment, above, when Luke catches a bullet fired by Misty Knight at point blank range, saving the life of a murderer. There are a few reasons why this is different from what you expect. First of all, it’s the woman who wants the revenge killing. Second, a hero is capable of this kind of murder: Again, her gun is a few feet from the target’s face, and the villain was already neutralized and presented no threat. That’s cold-blooded.

And finally, it hurts Luke to catch a bullet? Really?
