Black Fox (Thief) (Earth-616) from Black cat Vol 1 4 0001
The Black Fox is an audacious jewel thief who has had a long criminal career in the United States and Europe. His crimes have brought him repeatedly into conflict with the hero Spider-Man.[4]

He even tried to escape Spider-Man by moving to Los Angeles, where he occupied the mansion of a rich couple while they were on vacation in Switzerland. Unfortunately Peter Parker aka Spider-Man was in Los Angeles at the same time for a book signature event and defeated him again, although he had mercy and let the Black Fox avoid prison.[5]

Spider-Man finally recognized that he had a soft spot for older men due to his memories of Uncle Ben, and that was why he repeatedly let the Black Fox go. Resolving these issues, he captured and incarcerated Black Fox.[6]

The Black Fox later became unlikely friends with the unlikeliest of heroes, Eric O'Grady.[7]

Black Fox later hires Black Cat to stole a painting. It's revealed that Black Fox was the one who trained Walter Hardy[2] and Felicia[3].

Abilities

The Black Fox is a highly skilled trained athlete. Although thanks to his advanced age he is no longer as proficient as he would have been when young, he is still incredibly agile. He can for instance swing on a line from one building to another, and scale the sides of buildings.

Strength level

Black Fox possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise.

Weaknesses

Black Fox is rather cowardly, and apparently has little training in hand-to-hand combat.


Equipment

Black Fox carries a pack containing smoke grenades and flash grenades. He also carries rope for swinging between buildings, a glass cutter, and an electronic device that can disable most burglar alarms.
