Synopsis for "Heroes for Hire!"Edit

Following the bust of a bunch of thieves, Power Man has a meeting with Jeryn Hogarth who has ideas on how to make Cage's Hero for Hire business more lucrative. Meanwhile, Danny visits with Joy Meachum and relinquishes control of his share of Rand-Meachum to her until such a time that he believes he's earned the wealth from the company.

When a new costumed criminal named the Incinerator appears and tries to rob Manhattan National Bank, Power Man is called into duty to stop the robbery, Iron Fist joins along. After a brief battle with the crook, they manage to defeat him when they activate the banks sprinkler systems, rending his flame suit useless and making him easy prey for Luke Cage's superior strength.

After the successful mission, Luke and Jeryn announce to Danny that they intend to include him in their new venture: Heroes for Hire. Iron Fist gladly agrees to join the organization.
