I've been fleshing out some ideas for a story dealing with Marvel's organized crime figures, done in a MAX style with very few appearances by actual superheroes or supervillains. So far, I've got Kingpin, Hammerhead, Justin Hammer, Big Man and the Enforcers, The Rose (Richard Fisk) and Sammy Silke in the mix but I'm sure there are some I am missing. If anyone could throw some names to research my way I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for jogging my memory! I can't believe I forgot about the Maggia.


Tombstone

Mr. Fear

The Owl

Purple Man

I suppose Mr. Negative would count some how

Not so much these guys, unless I can somehow make them a little more lifelike. I'm mostly looking for characters who are more like a real-life gangster than a supervillain, i.e. no powers, no tights, and I'm still debating on wether or not I even want to use experimental weapons, armors and that kind of stuff (might take Justin Hammer out of the picture if not.) The Owl might work, though, but I'd have to take away the whole "Sherlock Holmes villain" look. I've got plans for Purple Man in a different kind of story.

Does The Hood count?

I've been working on something for the Hood, actually, but I don't know if I'll actually use it. It's tenative.

Good call, Overlord. I was already working on Madame Masque and the entire Nefaria family. Took a lot of the fantastical elements away, of course, pretty much stripped them down to their old-school roots.

I had Silvermane in there too, not the cyborg version of course, but took a little bit of the reasoning behind the cyborg version so he's pretty much like the old boss who just won't die.

Wasn't aware of Phillipe Bazin though. That's something to look into, anyway. I figure I could use him in the same kind of capacities I had planned for Sammy Silke.

Isn't Philippe Bazin that bad guy from the very early issues of Darkhawk.

Yes, I collected Darkhawk.

Don't judge me.

If you want you can add some characters to be supporting characters to some of the gangsters so they can have someone for them to play off, like the interactions between the soprano family members.

For example Silvermane has a son Joseph Manfredi, he was a super villain until recently when he decide to hang up the tights and follow in the family business. Their relationship is the opposite of the Wilson and Richard Fisk relationship, Joey wants to please his father, but Silvermane regards him as a failure and has threatened to kill him.

Also there's Caesar Cicero, a character introduced in silvermane's first appearance, he was Silvermane's lawyer and has planning to overthrow him and take his position:

Of course there is also Ma Gnucci and her family:

Also there is the Arranger (real name Oswald P. Silkworth) , a guy who was more or less the Kingpin's assistant, until he screwed up and the kingpin had him killed:

Also there's Jigsaw, he doesn't have powers or a costume, just a messed up face, he can like the psycho gangster, like Tommy from good fellas:

Don Vincente Fortunato is another non powered gangster:
