    So yeah I was seriously inspired as a kid by Night thrasher, I wish he was more prominent.
    Brutally honest here, since marvel said "Commitment to Diversity" I'd thought they'd bring him back to the forefront... instead Miles Morales. Smh ffs.


    Huh... Alliteration?
    He's just grandfathered in and no one questions it.

    The fact that he's a "COSMIC" entity is another reason you expect to see aliens doing all kinds of weird shit, and it isn't particularly narrative breaking.

    Meanwhile...
    A guy skateboarding down the side of a building then performing martial arts wonders on you... definitely elicits the (>_>) w...t..h.. response.
    As a kid I was squinting at that situation pretty hard I guess.

    Thats why I mentioned just replacing it with a Goblin Glider type apparatus, blacked out B2futures style hover board or a williams x-jet looking thing. I think the last person with one I saw was the executioner in thunderbolts... or moonknight?
    But... ultimately flying is more legit to the super hero aestetic that most other means of transformation (Batmobile being the notable exception that proves the rule".
    Hover disc would be my preference

    Thankful for Night Thrasher that his name can been seen "Thrasher" as in beat the crap out of something and skateboarding does not have to play a part. Night thrasher costume has really cool elements

    Too bad that's Tony Stark

    "Night thrasher' is apparently British slang for someone who masturbates . I have seen British magazines and comic indexes mock him for this. Outlaw, the British Punisher, seemed amused by his name as well. He seems caught in the "Richard Ryder" innuendo trap. Maybe Thrash might be a better name for him.

    Would love 'thrash in the MCU. The Wakandan centre could help out folks like Rage, thrash, Riri and others...

    And Speedball is slang for a drug, who cares?

    This is the U!S!A!

    And we don't give up on Thrasher!

    If it is British slag, it's a very little used slang.

    it wasn't a criticism. i'm legitimately disappointed that it wasn't Dwayne and just Tony wearing some kind of faux-Night Thrasher costume (as if it that makes sense).

    not my #1 priority. but, if I had a time machine, i'd probably suggest to Fabian Nicieza that he not handicap half of his New Warriors roster by giving them really stupid names. if they had saved 'Nightwatch' for Dwayne, he'd probably be an Avenger by now. don't get me started on Speedball or the toxic av...er, I mean Rage. yeah, the angry black kid named 'Rage.' that will age well.

    Joe Quesada and Brian Michael Bendis, apparently. one might argue that Robbie would never have become Penance if not for that aspect of his moniker. right or wrong, I can easily imagine the conversation about it. Bendis: Speedball? durrr, does he have drug powers? when can I kill him?" Quesada: "yeah it's a crappy name. but he has fans. it's weird. maybe don't kill him. you can poke fun at him in Alias. but we also sort of need a sacrificial lamb for Civil War."

    Fabian didn't create or name Rage, well, Rage, that was the Avengers writer. He simply took Edwin in when the Avengers writer wanted to toss him. Speedball was named by Steve Ditko, IIRC

    Edwin is Jarvis's first name, lol. But yeah, I'm pretty sure that's a typo.

    New Warriors villain Midnight's Fire appeared in Ironheart #3.

    He was certainly an unexpected treat in that issue. Wait a second . . . if Midnight's Fire is in there, how long until Night Thrasher comes around recruiting for a "new" New Warriors?
    The spider is always on the hunt.
