Closing the restaurant for the night, Connie Lin planned to clean the remaining tables and count their earnings. Unbeknownst to her, Cornell Stokes armed himself with a bazooka cannon, ready to take out Luke Cage. With only seconds to react, Cage saw the oncoming attack and quickly wrapped himself around Lin. A powerful blast rocked the foundation of Genghis Connie's, leaving one side of the building to collapse on itself.
Believing the explosion to have killed Luke Cage, Cornell Stokes returned to Harlem's Paradise. However, Cage and Connie Lin had found themselves beneath the cave-in. While Cage had no injuries, he found Lin with some scrapes, bruises, little blood, and a broken leg. Outside, Misty Knight, policemen, and firemen were on the scene, removing rubble and keeping spectators from crowding the immediate area. As Cage came to Lin's rescue, he disclosed his secret to her, that he possessed unbreakable skin and enhanced strength. With her cradled in his arm, he punched the debris and freed her and himself.
Quickly, medics came to aid Connie, while her husband Jin Lin made it to the scene. As Cage tried to walk away, news reporters continued to surround him, asking about his heroic rescue. Though he did not want to be interviewed, he gave out his name to be Luke Cage.
