Power Man & Iron Fist #89
Issue(s): Power Man & Iron Fist #89
He attacks Cage (and Danny) but fails to hurt him, and the man is taken to prison. Dishonored because he was defeated by a black man, he kills himself. The cover shows him having committed suicide with a gun, but in the story, it's actually poison from a minion's hollow tooth.
To regain their leader's honor, the rest of the paramilitary group try to kill Luke and Danny.
They fail, and they all take cyanide capsules themselves.
It's a weird story. Not really fleshed out very well. And i'm really not liking Cowan's chicken-scratch artwork.
On the plus side, this issue does feature Luke Cage in a puffy coat. He's wearing it to hide a bulletproof vest; protection against the soldiers' armor piercing rounds.

I'm surprised no connection was made between the paramilitary group and Cage's old foe Mace.
