The Many Foes of Spider-Man - Silvermane

He is one old mother and he isn't that cool. He's Silvermane.

Silvio Manfredi, nicknamed "Silvermane" for his near-white hair, is a professional criminal who has been a long-time nemesis in the Spider-Man comics. He started his criminal career in an organized crime group called the Maggia. Climbing through the ranks and becoming head of the crime family, he eventually formed an alliance with HYDRA, a worldwide organization determined to take over the world. Silvermane has hired many criminals, such as Hammerhead, and he has also been known to be a rival of the Kingpin.

In his old age, Silvermane attempted to prolong his life by transforming himself into a cyborg. He has occasionally attempted to boost the power of his remaining organic parts by harvesting parts from the superhuman body of his nemesis, Spider-Man. He is still an active member of the Maggia.

Did you hear that nbc.com had seven minutes of Spider-Man 3 available for download the other day? It was awesome! I thought that the Harry story was going to be a weak point but I think it'll actually be really good.
