New Warriors alum Night Thrasher has been added to Kabam’s Marvel Contest of Champions mobile fighting game. In addition to adding him to the game, Kabam’s description for him casually mentions that – spoilers – the entire New Warriors team (minus Dwayne) died in an explosion.
“Genius weapons designer and masked vigilante skateboarder, Dwayne Taylor trained himself to peak human perfection before taking on the mantle of Night Thrasher. Forming the New Warriors, Taylor sought to take revenge on the criminal underworld that killed his parents. Night Thrasher was transported to the Battlerealm moments before an explosion claimed the lives of his teammates leaving many to presume him dead. Night Thrasher now fights alongside Earth’s mightiest heroes in The Contest of Champions.”
Originally created in 1989 by Tom Defalco and Ron Frenz, Night Thrasher was the leader of the original New Warriors team. The Marvel Contest of Champions design for him is based on Skottie Young’s 2005 redesign.
Marvel Contest of Champions is available now on iOS and Android platforms.
