When Luke Cage decided to move forward with Heroes for Hire, Jeryn helped Power Man understand the business side of his endeavor. Over the next few weeks, Hogarth helped Cage apply for licenses, meet with potential clients and negotiate loans. He also convinced Luke to bring Danny in as a partner in the business leading to a long-running venture between the two that helped grow an incredible friendship.
Hogarth continued to help and even run the Heroes for Hire organization. He also helped the Avengers during a Senate inquiry, which proved one of many attempts by Hogarth to appeal to a higher-class clientele than the one the Heroes for Hire usually served. That didn’t stop Iron Fist and Power Man from accompanying Hogarth’s daughter Millie to her debutante ball where Nightshade, Discus, Stiletto, the Eel, and Man Mountain Marko attempted to kidnap her, until they came face-to-face with Heroes for Hire. Thinking that Danny had been killed and Luke framed for the crime, Jeryn shut down the original Heroes for Hire operation.
A few years after Heroes for Hire folded, Jeryn took a job with the Chicago Spectator Newspaper and reunited with Luke Cage. He appeared on television to defend the one-time Power Man’s actions. When Iron Fist was revealed to be alive, Luke was cleared of the murder of Danny Rand.
