What makes Night Thrasher unique is the fact that he realized pretty early on that he wouldn't last long in a world where an awful lot of criminals, even the petty ones, had superpowers. So he made his own superhero team called the New Warriors who focused more on smaller scales crimes that the Avengers and FF were too busy to take care of, but still bigger than a single hero could handle
