Power Man #35
Issue(s): Power Man #35
This issue is the conclusion of the Spear/Mangler story.
It turns out that their brother was dying and Dr. Burstein attempted to save his life with an experimental process that killed him...
...but Spear and Mangler blame Noah for the death. Considering this was McGregor's plot up until this issue, i am suspicious that this simple misunderstanding was McGregor's original idea. Noah does display an almost irrational amount of guilt for his actions at the time as if he was ready to believe the worst about himself.
The Vending Machine travails continue.
This is the last appearance of Quentin Chase, the policeman that was friendly towards Cage but suspicious of his past. With McGregor's departure that is dropped along with the subplot of the chemical company exec that was pursuing criminal charges against Cage for roughing him up.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: Cage starts this issue racing to the docks where Noah has been injured by Spear. Next issue is a reprint. Luke Cage appears in Power Man annual #1 and then some Defenders issues before next appearing in issue #37.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Inbound References (1): showAlex Simmons, Bertha, Beth Simmons, Claire Temple, D.W. Griffith, Luke Cage, Mangler (Luke Cage villain), Noah Burstein, Quentin Chase, Sandra Simmons, Spear
FOOM#16 stated that McGregor wanted to end the Spear story with a big fight at Rockefeller Center on Xmas Eve atop the giant Xmas tree there.
