Luke Cage Synergy Guide

Luke Cage is a Science class champion in the Contest of Champions who forms a synergy with 7 other characters, available as a 3-Star, 4-Star, 5-Star and 6-Star champion.

Framed and sent to prison for a crime he didn't commit, Carl Lucas became the "volunteer" for a series of scientific experiments to create another Super-Soldier. When a sadistic prison guard intervened with the experiment, Lucas was granted superhuman strength and near-impenetrable skin. Using his new-found abilities to escape prison, Carl changed his name to Luke Cage and set up shop as a Hero for Hire, vowing to assist any who needed his help … for the right price.
