Criminal Willis Stryker is a member of the Syndicate and uses his expert knife combat and throwing skills to defeat his biggest foe, Luke Cage.
Willis Stryker grew up alongside Carl Lucas, hustling to get by in a local gang. But they grew up, Lucas chose a new path and became Luke Cage. Stryker, however, maintained his criminal course and became the dangerous drug boss known as Diamondback.
Carl Lucas was a Harlem-bred kid who found himself on the wrong side of the tracks – and the law. While behind bars he received an experimental treatment, granting Lucas bulletproof skin, super strength and endurance. This hardened ex-con is now Luke Cage, a.k.a. Power Man, a hero dedicated to keeping his streets safe.
