Okay time to start over here for one I hated the way a visor would look on a dark character so no more visor. Instead those are the only powers he actually will have night-vision where his eyes will glow green when he uses it, and thermal vision in order to track down perps where his eyes will glow red. Anyway other than that he stays the same as above except he goes by Johnny Dark.
Dating back to the time known as the Medieval Period or Dark Ages there has always been a member of the Dark family watching over their respective cities. William Darksmyth was a knight in the service of the Baron of Loch and was conscripted to take down a cult of sorcerers known as Death's Hand. He donned black armor and assumed the title of the Black Knight at the Baron's suggestion.
During his battle with the sorcerers he was struck with glowing green and red energies unleashed by their vile ceremony. His vision became a blurry green haze until his eyes adjusted to the dark area in which he found himself. He could see in the darkness though everything was some shade of green!
One of the Death's Hand lit a torch and swung it at him. The heat from the torch was a bright red like it was burned into his eyes. He screamed out in anguish wondering what they had done to him. In a rage he slaughtered every member of the cult with his giant sword until his black armor was covered in red blood.
As years went by William Darksmyth's image was turned from noble knight to dark murderer by the enemies of Loch who wished to bring down the Baron. History soon feared the name of the Black Knight and he was driven into hiding unless he face death at the hands of the King of England.
I will continue the origin with a couple of the other ancestor's before I get to present day and the Midnight Avenger. Hope you guys like it.
