Nighthawk (Marvel)(02 - Joaquin Pennysworth)

None. Pennysworth relies on his costume, and his hand to hand combat abilities. His costume is jet-powered, allowing for flight, and is equipped with weaponry such as laser cannons and titanium claws.

Pennysworth's father had a shameful past as a leader of the racists Sons of the Serpent. Ashamed of this, Pennysworth sought out a life as a hero and was recruited into S.H.I.E.L.D., sponsored by Kyle Richmond (the original Earth-616 Nighthawk).

Quickly making his way up through the ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D., Pennysworth was put in charge of Operation Peanut Dumpling, which was a mission to destroy an insanity-causing Mad Bomb created and designed by the newest incarnation of The Sons of Serpent. The operation went horribly wrong, and all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, with the exception of Pennysworth were killed in action.

Pennysworth managed to evade capture, and laying low within the Sons of the Serpent's hideout, he secretly planted bombs over the next few weeks, preparing to destory their base.

Pennysworth was rescued by Kyle Richmond in his Nighthawk guise, and She-Hulk, after Richmond put together a new team of Defenders, sponsored by the 50 State Initiative after the Civil War. As the three escaped, Pennysworth detonated the bombs.

Pennysworth was then taken off active duty as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. Frustrated that all his training would simply lead to a desk job, Kyle Richmond offered him an alternative. Richmond was no longer allowed to be Nighthawk, forced by the government to retire after breaking federal laws, so he offered the role to Pennysworth. Pennysworth became the new Nighthawk, and alongside She-Hulk, Son of Satan (Damion Hellstrom) and Krang, the four became the newest incarnation of The Defenders. According to The Defenders' enemy Yandroth, the foursome are destined to work together as the perfect combination of The Defenders.
