E is for Enforcers
ABCs of Mediocre Marvel Villainy
I love the Enforcers. In fact, I'm not going to say anything bad about them
Early, early Spider-Man villains they are the working class of the Villain Underground.
From left to right:
Montana is a lasso expert. That's right. He can rope you. If memory serves, Montana is the brains of the team, which isn't saying much. His expertise is a rope.
Ox is the muscle. He's, you know, strong as an ox.
Fancy Dan is both stylish and a master of judo.
Do The Enforcers fight the Avengers? Of course not.
The Enforcers do collections for your protection racket.
Do The Enforcers have a rocket ship? Or anything?
No. They usually work for an even more obscure character called Mr. Big and generally show up doing a little work for your normal street level boss-types (Kingpin, The Hood, Norman Osbourne, Crime Master, etc).
I love them. Blue Collar Super Villains.
