LUKE CAGE: POWER MAN #43-46

IMG_9451

The return of Mace, and the end of Marv’s run.  He leaves with a whimper, giving us lesser issues at the end.

These issues continue from the previous ones–it’s basically one long story, but there are several good stopping points throughout.  This arc begins with Luke changing his name to avoid the IRS (like that’ll work) but being recognized by his old enemy Mace.

Mace puts an A-Bomb in the heart of Chicago, and Luke has to track it down and disarm it.  Mace seems to die in the course of the story.  But he’ll return for one more fight, in Spectacular Spider-Man. 

Creators: Marv Wolfman and Lee Alias
