A new Power Man. He is first seen stopping Cottonmouth
from pimping a young girl who turns out to be a runaway teen. When he returns the girl to her family he is paid in cash and we learn that Vic Alvarez is a hero for hire.
He uses glowing energy the Screaming Eagle Slap to shatter a Hand ninja's katana blade. The Hand then visit Daniel Rand because Daniel Rand is the only one in the vicinity who teaches that move. The original Heroes for Hire, Luke

According to Deadly Nightshade
after Luke Cage left Vic (Shades) and Comanche's gang, Comanche and Shades, wanted to step up their game (criminal enterprising) and so they came to her , for new weapons. She gave Shades a new visor which generated optic blasts by pulling in bioelectric energy from the environment. According to her the absorbing crystal became embedded in Victor's skin when Bullseye blew up his city block killing 107 people in the process and instigating the Shadowland arc.
However, according to Iron Fist
Vic's powers aren't based in technology, but spirituality. Danny says that when Vic's building exploded he absorbed the lifeforce (chi) of all the deceased people in self-defense, including one of Iron Fist's Thunder Dojo students, Javier. Javier was the only student who mastered the "Screaming Eagle Slap" but was killed in Bullseye's blast. Danny surmises that this is how Victor knows K'un L'un technique without having ever practiced it himself.
- His email address is not entirely visible but it appears to be Powerman123@hotmail.com.
- His Craigslist advertisement notes that he is indeed a Hero for Hire and he charges reasonable rates. PayPal is preferred.
- When the Hand visit Shang Chi is teaching about mastering chi. While it is currently unclear how he knows K'un L'un style Kung Fu it could be that Power Man's glowing energy abilities are derived from chi mastery.
- Apparently, he primarily operates in Spanish Harlem.
