Night Thrasher (21 issues, 1993-1994)

Night Thrasher is the founder and leader of the New Warriors, and head of the Taylor Foundation. Although he possesses no superhuman powers, he has trained himself extensively in many martial arts, and is adept at building technological devices.Night Thrasher is very similar to DC Comics' Batman, with almost exactly the same origin story (driven to fight crime after parents murdered in front of him as a child, although the circumstances of his parents' deaths was later greatly elaborated upon as something more than simply a random criminal act) and power set (trained human with gadgets).
