Bio:

Alex Banyon was a fresh out of college researcher working on unlocking the potential inherent in the genetics of marine animals for regeneration, recovery and other abilities humans lack. He was working late one night when four men broke into the lab where he was showing off his current research to his fiancee.

The intruders attacked the young couple and wrecked the lab. On a lark, the thugs strapped Alex and his fiancee down and subjected them to a random combination of Alex’s retroviral test samples. After that, the thugs wrecked the lab and left.

Alex barely survived, his fiancee didn’t. It wasn’t until later that Alex learned that the thugs were enforcers for a local loan shark and crime lord. It was only a week after the assault that the first sign of Alex’s powers developed. That was when the local Seattle vigilante named Dark Angel began to take a great interest in Alex.

Through Dark Angel’s training, Alex learned to control his abilities, as well as augment them with custom gadgetry and other crime-fighting skills. Alex took on the name of Knight Thrasher. This continued for some number of years until, Dark Angel vanished with no trace.

Assuming that he had retired, Alex took his own gear and moved out of Seattle. A new brand of hero had shown up there and Seattle had no need of the Knight Thrasher then. So Alex took his cousin up on a long standing job offer and moved to a bedroom community outside New York. During the day he worked as an analyst and software engineer. Away from work, and the public eye he resumed his work as the Knight Thrasher.

Alex is 5’11" with dark brown hair, cut short, and brown eyes. He’s caucasian with usually a light tan and in good shape. He’s incredibly smart, though at times his common sense fails him.
