Friday Night Fights: Neck Shrapnel!

Opponents wrap chains around Luke Cage's neck at their peril.

In this scene from Cage #1, a villain whose name escapes me does just that. He also makes the mistake of referring to Luke Cage by a previous sobriquet, Power Man, which totally pisses him off. This must happen all the time to Sean Combs. "It's just Diddy now, man."

Cage inflates his incredible neck muscles so much that the chain not only breaks, it EXPLODES! That's a strong neck, am I right? That's a Henry Rollins neck right there.

Because Bahlactus demands it!

Luke Cage also has the ability to collapse his neck down to the size of a bendy straw.

You should see this guy's neck workout. His week is like, Monday: legs and back, Tuesday: abs, Wednesday arms, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday: neck.

As part of the process that gave him superpowers, Luke Cage's neck-DNA was fused with DNA from puffer fish and Dizzy Gillespie's cheeks. No turtleneck sweater on earth can hold him.

I think that villain is Hardcore (snicker), who was possibly moonlighting from gay porn at the time of his unfortunate encounter with Luke Cage and his mighty neck.

What I want to know is, if Cage gets that pissed when you call him Power Man, how does he react if you call him an asshole, or worse?

Hey there......I think you should give the villain a break. Maybe he had a hard day too ;-) And anyways I'm sure there was an apology in the wings, am I right Cage???
PS: Love big necks

Maybe that's why his kid looks like a Skrull...the neck thing is just throwing everyone off.

The bad guy is called Hardcore (he apparently died when a taser gun exploded in his car when it fell into a lake or somethign like that)

silly bitch your weapons cannot harm me I'm Luke Cage, bitch

So that's what happened to Hardcore. I thought he'd fallen into that distant corner of Limbo that all 90s supervillains have gone to. Another Cage villain who has fallen off the map: Coldfire (who was actually pretty cool).
