Luke Cage

While serving prison time for a crime he didn't commit, former gang member Carl Lucas volunteered for an experiment that gave him enhanced strength and unbreakable skin. He promptly used his new abilities to escape prison, returning to his boyhood streets of Harlem.

Rather than returning to crime, he took the name Luke Cage and became a mercenary "hero for hire," using his powers to help anyone who could afford his asking price.

Black Panther

T'Challa rules the technologically advanced African kingdom of Wakanda. In addition to having peak human physical abilities, his mystical link to the Panther God grants him superhumanly acute senses and allows him to also wear the ceremonial mantle of the Black Panther.

Black Panther must balance his duties as a king with his responsibilities as a hero. This tension occasionally strains his standing with his allies in the Avengers, as well as the respect of his own people.

Scarlet Witch

Born to a mutant father, imbued with sorcerous potential by a demon trapped in Wundagore Mountain, and raised by her adoptive gypsy parents, Wanda Maximoff's life was full of intrigue long before she became aware of her powers.

The Scarlet Witch began her career fighting the X-Men as a member of her father Magneto's Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.

But she became disillusioned with villainy, instead joining the Avengers after several of that team's founding members left.
