Following an initial mention earlier this month, the Daily Bugle viral site has posted another story that mentions some of Spider-Man’s oldest villains, the Enforcers. This latest article, posted below, is even written by Frederick Foswell, who comic book fans might recognize as the alter-ego of the Enforcers’ leader, the Big Man.
With reports of Russian mob activity at an all-time high in the city, many have wondered who these (mostly) men are and what they are trying to accomplish. New Yorkers are no strangers to organized crime, but this time it seems different. Gregarious, boastful men fill the Brighton beach night scene — every single one of them with a spectacular guttural baritone voice that makes one wonder if there are any gangster tenors.
Mob activity is the suspected cause of a spike in crime across all five boroughs. Not content with hijacking retails goods, sports betting, or drugs, more crime families have become involved in high-tech crimes such as the theft of microchips, processors, experimental metal alloys, and advanced weaponry.
Fancy Dan Brito said during his arraignment for the recent Brighton Beach shootout, “Everything has a price. Including the head of so-called superheroes.”
There’s no word yet at to whether or not the organized crime team might appear in next summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which hits theaters on May 2, 2014. The Marc Webb-directed sequel also stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field, Chris Cooper, B.J. Novak and Sarah Gadon.
