Kenny's father, [[Dr. Stanton]], was a therapist who ran [[Gotham Youth Counseling Center]], where he spent great amounts of time helping afflicted kids. However, in doing so, he ended up neglecting his own son. Tired of being dumped to the care of [[Howard Lewis]], the center's librarian and sculptor, Kenny turned his rage on those who had been bullying or abusing teenagers. He also deduced that if he solved the problems of his father's patients, he'd finally have more time for him. So, Kenny put on a 6 feet tall exoskeleton and stole Lewis's hilt to use as a laser whip. Dubbing himself Payback, Kenny cast himself in the role of a vigilante on par with [[Batman (Terry McGinnis)|Batman]], or so he liked to think.

== Behind the scenes ==
 
Payback was similar to [[Phantasm]] in both characterization and appearance. Both characters wore mostly black and carried an unusual weapon for their vigilante practices (Phantasm wears a handheld scythe on her right forearm, and Payback uses a laser-whip), both characters also had secret identities that neither of the respective Batman initially suspected (Phantasm was Andrea Beaumont, Batman's former lover, and Payback was the son of Dr. Stanton, Kenny Stanton), both have aliases that start with a "P", both had characters who were initially suspected to be their true identity until circumstances cleared their names, and were likewise also voiced by the same actors (Phantasm was initially suspected to be Carl Beaumont, a man who was in hiding from the triad mafia, and both Phantasm and Carl were voiced by Stacy Keach Jr., likewise, Payback was initially suspected to be Howard Lewis, a person close to the patients at the rehabilitation clinic who matched the physical profile, had access to the patient's files, and had a similar welding tool for carving figurines to Payback's primary weapon, and both he and Payback were voiced by Bill Fagerbakke.), lastly, their motivation for doing the vigilante work that results in the targets deaths as well as the nature of his targets themselves dealt with their father (Andrea Beaumont's father was murdered by Valestra's triad gang using their hitman, the man who would later become the Joker, so she specifically targeted Valestra and his triad, as well as the Joker to avenge her father, and Kenny Straton was himself neglected by his own father, so he tries to attack the people who were bullying or abusing his patients so he wouldn't have to be neglected.), and both characters, while doing their vigilante work, also framed the respective Batmen in the process.

Payback's attacks were pretty brutal, even killing didn't seem to bother him. He nearly killed a shop manager, and plunged a moving car off a cliff. On both instances he would have murdered his victims, had Batman not intervened on time.

After listening to Terry McGinnis's rant about Bruce Wayne, Payback chose the latter as his next target. Little did he know he was walking into a trap laid down by Terry, in an attempt to draw him out. Payback attacked Bruce in the inauguration of the Vreeland Marquis Hotel. He cut the brakes of an elevator, and Bruce would have fallen from several stories, if Batman hadn't promptly stepped in. Then Payback severed a stone pillar and hurled a massive boulder at Batman. In doing so, however, the floor he was standing on caved in, and Payback plunged to the ground. Batman caught him in midair, at which point his mask fell off, revealing his true identity. Ashamed, Kenny broke into tears and then was taken into GPD custody.
