History

Dubbed by Hawkeye as the "Tracksuit Draculas", this mafia worked in New York City. They had many encounters with the archer, including facing him when he tried to force Ivan Banionis, one of their members, to sell his apartment building to him;[1] fighting against Barton when they attempted to kidnap Ivan‘s runaway wife, Cherry, whose connection to them was unknown to him;[2], and, finally, trying to force Barton to return the building to them. Despite their threats to kill all of its residents, Hawkeye managed to confront and defeat them.[3]

They hired the assassin known as The Clown to finish off Barton once and for all,[4] as the company they were connected to wanted to raze the buildings in the neighborhood to build a shopping mall, but couldn't because of Hawkeye's control over that one.[5]

After Ivan's return,[6] the tracksuit mafia raided Barton's building but were opposed by heavy resistance from its inhabitants.[7] In the end, Kate Bishop subdued Ivan, and Barton dealt with the Clown while the rest of the neighbors contained the remaining tracksuits until the arrival of the police.[8]
