Luke Cage, better known as Power Man, is a superhero. At some point prior to his first appearance (presumably during the events in first episode), he was trapped inside a DISK, which then ended up in the hands of Joel Murphy.[1]

When Ed and Hulk infiltrated the Raft, where Abomination had set up 1 of the 5 bases from which Red Skull intended to destroy the world, Ed ran into Joel, who gave him the DISK containing Power Man since he too wanted Red Skull’s plan to fail. Power Man thus became Ed’s second hero. [1]

When Ed first D-smashed him, Power Man quickly grew fond of his new partner and even addressed him as ‘boss’. He helped Ed break into the area of the Raft where the Gaia Anchor was located, but once there they were confronted by Abomination. Power Man tried to fight him, but lost the battle due to Abomination having received a powerup from the Dimension Sphere. He returned to his DISK when his time limit was up.[1]

Power Man was D-smashed again to help defeat Red Skull's giant robot. In this fight, he teamed up with Hulk to tear the robot's limbs apart. The two immediately turned this into a game to see who was stronger. [2]

Power Man and Hulk teamed up again against the Wrecking Crew when they came to steal the Solar Crown, the last of the infamous Treasures of Darkness, from an Egyptian Pyramid. The two powerhouses were stronger than the four Wrecking Crew members combined and with a series of team attacks defeated them all.[3]

When the Avengers learned of Loki's plan to open a gate to the Dark Dimension and release Dormammu, they planned to destroy the Dark Gate device to prevent this from happening. Power Man was D-smashed to help defeat Iron Monger and Bi-Beast, 2 of the villains guarding the Dark Gate.[4]

After the Avengers managed to rescue Professor Akatsuki from Dormammu's influence, he build a new Biocode Installer and gave Nick Fury a complete biocode. Fury used this new power to permanently release all captured heroes from their DISks, including Power Man.[5]

Power Man participated in the final battle against Dormammu. He helped defend the Helicarrier against Dormammu's army of Mindless Ones when they came to destroy the 10 laser cannons that the heroes intended to use against Dormammu[6]. In this fight, he teamed up with his old partner Iron Fist. The first attack was succesfully repelled, but when Loki unleashed a second squadron of Mindless Ones inside the Helicarrier, and powered them up by sawing despair among the crew, Power Man was defeated and thus unable to participate in the Avengers' last battle with Loki.[6] Power Man had his injuries treated in the helicarrier's infirmary. He was last seen among the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and other heroes after Loki was defeated.[7]
