(Daredevil II#17 (fb) – BTS) – Detective Mantegna responded to a distress call and heard from Allison Lange that her husband Buford, the Leap-Frog, had gone missing. He figured Lange had just run for it and didn’t bother to investigate, glad that the costumed trash was gone. 

(Daredevil II#17) – Mantegna was in the shower when reporter Ben Urich snuck in to ask him about the Lange case. He refused to feel bad about the case and didn’t provide much information. He expressed his resentment of heroes, then sprayed Urich with the shower when he didn’t leave quick enough.
