He is portrayed by Nicolas Cage, who also played Randall Raines in Gone in 60 Seconds, Big Daddy in Kick-Ass, Ben Gates in National Treasure, Ghost Rider in Ghost Rider, Grug Crood in The Croods, Balthazar Blake in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Spider-Man Noir in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Zoc in The Ant Bully, and Stanley Goodspeed in The Rock.

Biography

Poe is a former Army Ranger who was sentenced to 7 - 10 years in a maximum-security penitentiary for manslaughter for killing a drunk who was attacking his pregnant wife, Tricia. Because of his sentence, Poe never met his daughter, Casey. Eight years later, he is paroled for good behavior. He and his cellmate and best friend "Baby-O" are boarded onto a plane that is also transporting several murderers to another facility. One of these murderers, Cyrus "The Virus" Grissom, hijacks the plane, forcing Poe to defend himself and "Baby-O".

Poe tries to rescue the plane by secretly communicating with Air Marshal Vince Larkin, but Grissom finds out and tries to kill him. Ultimately, the plane crash-lands in Las Vegas, and Poe and Larkin give chase as Grissom tries to get away on a stolen fire truck. During a scuffle on the truck, Grissom threatens to kill Casey; enraged, Poe knocks him out and handcuffs him to the truck's service ladder, which goes flying through an overhead walkway and onto some power lines, and Grissom is killed when he lands on the conveyor belt of a pile driver, which comes down on his head. Poe is lauded as a hero, and reunites with Tricia and Casey.
