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.
After undergoing a variant of the Super-Soldier treatment in jail for a crime he didn't commit, the man formerly known as Carl Lucas was given superhuman strength and unbreakable skin. Adopting the name Power Man, Luke Cage became a Hero for Hire and a defender of New York City.
