#WESTANDWITHLUKECAGE AND THE WRONGFULLY ACCUSED

In ‘New Avengers’ (2006) #22, Luke Cage stays and fights the Superhero Registration Act. In Harlem, Iron Man and Ms. Marvel are present at Luke Cage’s home. Urgently, they are coaxing him to sign on to become a member of the Avengers. At the stroke of midnight, the Act becomes law. From then, the Avengers will become a legal team with pay and benefits. In addition, Luke has the chance to expunge his troubled past. Without a doubt, #WeStandWithLukeCage and the wrongfully accused.

Despite their insistence, Luke won’t sign. Disappointed, Iron Man and Ms. Marvel depart. Quickly, the former Power Man decides to send Jessica Jones and baby Danielle away to Toronto, Canada. Desperately, Jessica attempts to convince Luke to seize their money and run away to Canada with his family. But, Luke protests he needs to set an example for his home Harlem and vows to make the people responsible pay. Soon, Jessica departs with the baby for Toronto, Canada. At the stroke of midnight, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents confront Luke Cage.

FOR LUKE: AFTER LUKE STAYED TO FIGHT, HE JOINED THE SECRET AVENGERS

In the dark, Luke Cage is sitting in the living room. Furtively, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents arrive at his doorstep. Quickly, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Gabriel Jones introduces himself. When he tells Luke he wants a word with him, the hero says he is occupied. However, the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents will not go away. In response, Luke busts through the door with the sofa, beating down on S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Soon, they fire at Luke with genetic paralyzers.

After a brave battle, S.H.I.E.L.D. have the rebel on the ropes. Within a moment, Luke falls down the building. Unfortunately, Luke is down on the floor. Shockingly, one of the bystanders in the neighborhood reacts by shooting his shotgun at the agents. As a result, the people rise and start throwing projectiles at S.H.I.E.L.D. At that moment, Captain America, Iron Fist disguised as Daredevil and Falcon fly in. Quickly, these Secret Avengers make short work of the law enforcement. Soon, they depart with Luke Cage.
