Default Re: Luke Cage introduced in Avengers 2, Hulk blasted into space

Wikipedia's credibility doesn't really matter when they link their sources at the bottom.

As for killing Powerman... plastic explosives at base of the spine, or brainstem dissolving chemical, or even just the old fashioned million volts collar if tampered with.

The solutions you came up with: AIM running a prison, controlling empowered prisoners, Cage being assumed to be on the side of evil... that all seems very straightforward and easy to come up with. Realism on tap, basically.

Cage is trying to get back home to save his girl, and he has a hero's heart, he's going to be a trouble maker in prison and he's going to play along with whatever he thinks might get him out. AIM thinking he's going to be under their thumb kinda writes itself, I think.

The only fear I'd have is too much phlebotinum, if you got super bio science, super killchip tech AND scraps of Asgardian metal running around, that's a lot to ask, but it might be okay since AIM and Asgard are already established.

That's true in most cases, but has anyone been using the official ratings as a guideline for Luke Cage? Certainly not Bendis.
