I'm a Luke Cage fan too, but I will say I liked him better paired with Iron Fist. I don't think either should be pushed out to solo status as I think their quirky chemistry works well. I also hate that Cage is like the only "Avenger" who looks like a schlub. I mena a wife beater and jeans? Look, I read super hero comics so I accept the fact they wear costumes and have secret identities. This I will nail Bendis on. His love for thinking he has to update everything for fans of today. Give Luke Cage a costume and it is ok if you call him Power Man as well.
I agree that the skull cap, wife beater, leather jacket and jeans does not a costume make. Just for fun I'd love to see the yellow silk shit, and tiara look, just so Power Man would have a reason to whoop someone.
