The Enforcer was a criminal mercenary and assassin for hire, operating mainly on the West Coast of the United States. As a villain, the Enforcer fought Spider-Man, Spider-Woman,[2] the Ghost Rider[3] and the Werewolf by Night. The Enforcer used special silver-treated gear in order to fight the Werewolf, but was nevertheless defeated.[4]

The Enforcer was the first known target of the Scourge of the Underworld. He disguised himself as a bag lady with a hidden gun and tracked the Enforcer, who was at that time on a contract to kill the super criminal Termite. Scourge found him and shot him point-blank before he suspected.[5]

After being captured by Captain America, Scourge claimed to be Enforcer's brother, taking revenge on him for besmirching the family name.[6] However, the "Scourge of the Underworld" was later revealed to be an entire organization with multiple Scourges, who typically claimed to be related to or personally malice by super-villains when caught, throwing his story into doubt.[7]


The Enforcer was an expert at using firearmns, a skilled hand-to-hand combatant, and a trained hypnotist.

Strength level

The Enforcer had the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engaged in intensive regular exercise.


The Enforcer wore a mask that included infra-red lenses, to enable him to see in the dark. He also wore a lightweight suit of armor that included a silver-nitrate-covered vest to protect him from werewolves.


The Enforcer wore a disintegrator amulet, later a disintegrator ring that could disintegrate matter by weakening its molecular bonds. It was efficient, although only at short range.

The Enforcer carried two .45-caliber guns loaded with special ammo, including silver bullets, tranquilizer pellets and a "tingler" that implanted a post-hypnotic suggestion in the victim, that could be used to make them burst into flames.
