The Enforcer- Ghost Rider & Spider-Woman Villain:
-The Enforcer is a CLASSIC Jobber, but his costume is surprisingly decent- the simple two-colour scheme is much more design-friendly than some of the garish monstrosities you'll see among the rest of the victims of the Scourge of the Underworld (apologies to Turner D. Century's legions of fans), and its metallic sheen makes it look pretty sharp. He might have been decent, but he got stuck with the "forgotten" books- Ghost Rider
stuff was all he ever really got. He allies with Daredevil's foe The Gladiator in order to kill the Eel and steal his gear, and begins wielding a Disintegration Ray. His concept was kind of interesting eventually- a Gimmick Weapon User, but with an authentic PISTOL instead of a bow & arrow or juggling balls or something comic-booky. He then tries to take over his father's movie studios from a criminal gang, vaporizing their boss in the process. The original Ghost Rider is then able to defeat him, and Enforcer's miniaturized Disintegration Ring falls into the ocean.
-He recovers the Ring and allies with the Water Wizard against Ghost Rider, but again loses- GR is depowered and tied to a motorcycle, which is then dumped off a cliff, but he survives and beats both villains. After this, he shifts to other rogues galleries- he threatens Werewolf By Night and Spider-Woman, losing again, and giving his name as Carson Collier instead of Charles Delazny, as in the GR
appearances. He poisons an associated of Spider-Woman's, and forces her to work with him on a variety of heists in order to get the antitode- finally, he admits it was all a ruse and he HAD no antidote, so she ruined her reputation over nothing... then he just turns himself in like a complete dick, denying her even the satisfaction of capturing him! Okay, that's pretty amazing.
The Enforcer Dies:
-Later escaping prison, he is hired by some gamblers to fix a race between Johnny Blaze & Flagg Fargo, shooting Flagg and stealing a ton of money from the joint- he is driven into the lake in his exit, and avoids capture. Later, Madame Masque hires him to kill the criminal known as Termite, but on the mission, the Enforcer suffers the most ignoble of fates- he becomes the first criminal to be killed by the Scourge of the Underworld. This ongoing story-arc leads through many titles and ends in Captain America
, with Cap capturing "Scourge", who reveals that he kills criminals over a family shame- he is the YOUNGER BROTHER of the Enforcer, and killed him and other villains in retaliation for embarassing the family. Gruenwald later came to regret wiping guys like him and the other Scourge victims out- at least SOME of them could have potentially been saved. However... it's probably 100 times more likely that they'd just become Background Jobbers, as the '90s didn't use many classic Jobbers, and the 2000s turned them into The Hood's goons. A second Enforcer, named Mike Nero (the nephew of the first), debuted during Dark Reign
being written by Frank Tieri, and he had some Magic Weapons and befuddled the Hood & the Wrecking Crew. He has yet to reappear. And curiously, despite a Punisher
arc resurrecting most of Scourge's victims, the Enforcer was not included among these- Death Adder, Letha, the first Titania, and TURNER D. CENTURY all got reborn, but THE ENFORCER? Nope.
-The best thing about him, though? THIS:
That's right- an ENORMOUS debate on the Official Handbook website has sprung up regarding the real identity of this loser gimmick, all based off of some continuity errors (two different writers using two different real names for the guy) and bad writing. I love the internet for stuff like this- people spending hours upon hours trying to explain what's going on, to the point where there's like TWO PAGES OF TEXT on this one guy and a minor screw-up in character names.
The Enforcer's Capabilities:
-The Enforcer is a PL 8 all-around, packing half-decent accuracy and a Gun with some funny add-ons that make it a Device rather than Equipment (since it's gimmick-defining for him). He does little damage like most "Gun Guys" (Guns just aren't that dangerous to superhumans in the comics, really- Scourge is an exception). He could tangle with '70s-era Ghost Rider & Spider-Woman, who were both rookie heroes, but someone in the PL 10 weight class would make mincemeat out of him. His Protection is okay- +6 isn't bad for a human-level guy, but someone like Scourge just ate right through it. His weapons are more interesting- a Blast, an Incendiary dart that allows him to make a post-hypnotic suggestion that allows him to make people WILL THEMSELVES AFLAME (I guess that's Affliction- Compelled and a Blast), a Fire Burst, and a dart that Blinds people.
-Note that Enforcer carted around a Disintegration Ring in his early appearances which was INSANELY powerful, probably making him a PL 10 guy or worse- he apparently disintegrated a DESTROYER (ie. one of the giant freaking ships) with it.
