Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
Spider-Man had been a public menace for much of last year, getting into a confrontation with a women in Times Square, stealing $6,000 in cash and fighting two Captain Americas on Hollywood Boulevard before getting arrested in Pittsburgh following a store robbery.
