Blade - Born in a whorehouse to a prostitute.
Luke Cage - Imprisoned for a crime he did not commit.
Bishop - Street urchin who resorted to theft to survive.
Cyborg - Rebellious youth and former gang member.
Spawn - Sold his soul to the devil.
Storm - Orphaned thief.
Misty Knight - (Nothing bad in her bio, I just liked this rendering of her)
