Fiorello La Guardia was a politician and best known as a mayor of New York City.

Fiorello La Guardia's earliest recorded appearance was during a public appearance in 1934 to dedicate the opening of a new building. Unknown to La Guardia he was targeted for assassination during this appearance. This attempt was later foiled by Doc Savage and his Fabulous Five.[1]

In 1939, the city of New York was being terrorized by a gang calling themselves the Six Big Men. La Guardia swore in a group of what he believed to be upstanding citizens to be part of a special investigation into the group. La Guardia was unaware that Doctor Lang was secretly the Six Big Men's leader. The gang was later decimated by the costumed vigilante known as Angel.[2] A year later, La Guardia's office sanctioned the android Human Torch as a New York Police. The mayor also threatened to call the National Guard to deal with the threat of the Sub-Mariner. Such threats were met with mockery and laughter from the undersea monarch, which prompted the New York City Police Department to send the Human Torch after him.[3] The Torch and Sub-Mariner later fought across New York, but eventually Namor was convinced to cease his hostilities toward the city.[4]

Fiorello La Guardia was a historical figure who was an American politician and best known as 99th mayor of New York City. He died of pancreatic cancer on September 20, 1947 at the age of 64. Presumably his history on Earth-616 mirrors that of his real world counterpart.

He was known to say "when I make a mistake, it's a whopper!", being quoted by Mr. Fantastic at least once.[5]
