Hero for Hire #1 (1972)

In the Marvel Universe, scientific experiments can lead to unexpected side-effects - this is what happens to Carl Lucas in Hero for Hire #1. Framed for cocaine possession and suffering abuse at Seagate Prison, Lucas is offered a chance of parole by participating in a beta-stage experiment. However, the experiment designed to help people's health goes wrong and leaves him with skin as hard as steel. Now known as Luke Cage, he becomes a Hero for Hire and fights crime in New York, unknowingly going up against his former friend and current robber Willis Stryker, aka Diamondback.
