    • Power Man – Luke Cage, CEO and field leader. Super-human strength and steel hard skin.
    • Iron Fist – Daniel Rand, CFO and 2nd in command in the field. Martial arts expert and occult consultant. Wielder of the powerful iron fist.
    • Spider Woman – Jessica Drew. Head of investigations. Flight, strength and venom blasts.
    • Black Cat – Felicia Hardy. Security consultant. Peak human athlete and bad luck powers.
    • Machine Man – Surveillance specialist. Walking tank and gadget factory. Flight, strength and versatility.
    • Ant Man – Scott Lang. Infiltration specialist. Shrinks and is a highly skilled hacker and engineer.
    • Prowler - Hobie Brown. Tech support. Suit filled with gadgets. Rarely takes the field.

    I know many may be finding strange that I chose Spi and not Jessica Jones, but I think a great motivator for Luke would be if he became a widower, and had to support and raise his child all by himself. So, I chose the original product (Bendis created Jessica Jones because he was not allowed to use Jessica Drew) as the head of investigations. the H4H would have two big competitors. Silver Sable and her Wild Pack and:
    Daughters of the Dragon – Home base: Detroit.

    • Misty Knight – Bionic arm.
    • Colleen Wing – She-Samurai.
    • Diamondback - Rachel Leighton.
    • Silhouette – Sil Chord.
    • Tarantula - Maria Vasquez.
    • Ms Marvel – Sharon Ventura, in human form, but still almost as strong as in her She-Thing form.
    • White Tiger – Ava Ayala

    I'd prefer Jessica Drew with Heroes for Hire, too.
    I first started reading comics when she was under Dennis O'Neil's urban hero umbrella.
    She was moved to Gruenwald just before the end of her series (with a new logo to match), and I suspect that if her title hadn't been cancelled they were gearing up to put her in the Avengers.

    I like the use of Machine Man. With cyber security and cyber threats being more topical today, they could use someone that's hands on.

    I also like your Daughters of the Dragon idea. Especially using Sharon in her human form.
    But my line-up would be:

    Misty Knight
    Colleen Wing
    Dakota North
    Jessica Jones
    White Tiger
    Elsa Bloodstone

    The Lady of the Lake bailed on him because he wanted to be with Crystal, who was a married women (to Quicksilver). I don't know what happened to his dragon friend.

    The money is not the issue. While Luke is always connected to his neighborhood he is part of a bigger scope.

    I don't think you can take Luke from NY but if HFH went bigger and had offices in other cities with other characters operated the offices that could be promising. Of course there would teamups galore but Lang with a team in one city Dane in another Luke and Danny in NY.

    Ooohhh, loved the Elsa Bloodstone idea. Definitely incorporating her to the team, maybe in the place of Tarantula. She can be the Daughters supernatural consultant.

    I see no problem in the H4H being an operation that accepts money from those that can pay. I'd be like in Busiek's Power Company over at DC, They'd support the operation with paying clients (high-paying) and that'd leave them free to do pro-bono work for those really in need. As for moving out of NY, Luke has done so before. In Chicago itself, if I'm not mistaken, over as his 90's Cage series. I frankly don't see Luke sooo attached to Harlem. He goes where the little guy needs him. Plus, anything that puts heroes working on places other than NY, I'm game.

    Peace
