Comments: Created by Chris Claremont and Steve Leialoha

Profile by the Beetle

“Squid” has no connection to:

- Scungili, Connie - Connie is the real brain in the family, escaped alongside Sonny after the first attempt to steal the Robbins Emeralds

- Scungili, Sonny - The muscles in the family, but certainly not the brains. Sonny and Connie escaped from the first attempt to steal the Robbins Emeralds but were defeated at the second attempt by Spider-Woman (pictured above)










- Scungili, Fredo - After the failed attempt to steal the Robbins Emeralds, Sonny and Connie called their brother Fredo to have him in on the next attempt to steal the Robbins Emeralds. Fredo was defeated by Spider-Woman







- Scungili, Michael "Mickey"- (according to Lt. Bree; S.F.P.D.) the youngest member of the nastiest gang in San Francisco. When the family tried stealing the Robbins Emeralds they were attacked by Impossible Man and Spider-Woman. While his siblings escaped, Michael was taken in by the police







- “Squid” - The youngest and most dangerous of the family ( “Squid” might be a cousin or something since both Mike and Squid can’t be the youngest of the team, right?), after the first attempt to steal the Robbins Emeralds failed, Connie and Sonny called on “Squid” to participate in the second attempt. “Squid” was defeated by Spider-Woman
