LUKE CAGE: POWER MAN #22 (1974): 1st Discus


Tony Isbella and Ron Wilson take over the title for another sub-par run.  Bad writing, worse art. Luke Cage’s rogues gallery is virtually nonexistent, and what there is are generally a collection of gangsters with stereotypical patois. Stiletto and Discus are the closest thing he has so far to actual super-villains.

The Stuart Brothers are sons of a Seagate prison guard, and they blame Luke for daddy’s death. I’m sure you’ve already guessed their power sets.

Stiletto shoots knives. Discus, like Gladiator, shoots circular blades.

So why are they using their fists?
