"Can I help you?"
"My name is Luke Cage."
―Jackie Albini and Willis Stryker[src]

Albini, a veteran within the New York City Police Department, was making his morning walk through Harlem, greeting the people he knew. While buying socks for his wife from a street merchant, he was being approached by a man dressed like Luke Cage. When noticing someone was standing behind him Albini turned around and asked the man if he could help him. Instead of an answer to the question, the man told Albini that he is Luke Cage before he punched Albini in the torso with his Judas Gauntlet. This caused Albini to fly 20 feet through the air, landing on a pile of carton boxes, with Albini dying on impact due to his chest being caved in. His murderer walked away, shouting that he was Luke Cage.[3]
