(A fan continuation of's old Marvel Genesis: Luke Cage stories)
Never able to stop...
Luke suddenly got down on his knees, near a lake in the woods, and looked into the water. He didn't see the reflection of Luke Cage... he saw Carl Lucas. But that life is over. This is a new life, supposed to be a second chance... supposed to be better...
Suddenly, a hand came out of the water, grabbed Luke by the face, and pulled him in.
"Hahaha!" the fish-like monster punched him.
Luke quickly swam above the water to catch his breath, and got up and ran as fast as the wind could blow.
The beast got out of the water, chased him.
"You cant escape, Carl!" he shouted "Nobody escapes Mister Fish!"
"I'm not Carl Lucas" yelled Luke, trying to run even faster "I'm Luke... CAGE!"
Luke grabbed a boulder and flung it at Mister Fish's face.
"Tell HAMMER to leave me alone!" Luke shouted as he kept running.
AT HAMMER HQ...
"You sure you want this?" said the man, standing in the shadows
"Yes" said Arch Morton.
"Your choice" the man looked towards the scientists "Hurry up!"
A scientist got a needle and brought it to the man
"Here we go..." mumbled the man, injecting Arch with the strange formula in the needle.
"AAARGH!" Arch's skin suddenly became metal, forming a red and silver exoskeleton suit of armor around Arch.
"Chemistro LIVES!!!!" shouted the man.
Luke stood across from Mister Fish, ready to attack.
"Come on, Lucas" taunted Mister Fish "Guess I can call ya that no matter WHAT yer callin' yourself! HAHAHA!"
Luke and Mister Fish charged at each other, and jumped into the air, punching each other at the same time and sending both of them flying into the air.
Cage got up off the ground.
"Come on, Fish-Stick!" taunted Luke.
Suddenly, Luke passed out after being electricuted by HAMMER's latest creation...
