The Magnificent(yet convoluted)Origin of NightmanIn his childhood days, Jared Maroon was a helpless victim of bullying by the tough kids at elementary school due to the fact that he always bring his comic books and read them while ignoring the social life. Even though he got picked on in his past, he's always look at the lighter side thanks to reading comic books (and had thoughts that one day, he wanted to be one of those superheroes.) One day when he's in middle school, he happened to take a wrong turn from school to home because of can't taking his eyes of a reading the comics, as he found himself ambush by street gangs in a dead end alleyway. Fortunately, before he got hurt or worse... he was saved by an unheard superhero, "The Shadow Avenger" (who wears the same suit but a different mask and has a hat. He was also the original carrier of the trademark Multi-Gun.) Jared's rescue left him amazed and immersed (the fact that he never knew superheroes do exist) by his obscure, yet bold savior; and it wasn't the last time he sees him.
