(Shadowland: Power Man#2 (fb) - BTS) - In an effort to recover the visor she crafted for Shades, Deadly Nightshade targeted his son, who had since taken on the moniker of Power Man, and recruited a group of enforcers to achieve this.

(Shadowland: Power Man#2) - One of Nightshade's gang members spotted Power Man in a fist fight with Iron Fist and Luke Cage, and immediately alerted Nightshade. She then texted the location to her Flashmob. The group of six villains arrived together very quickly and confronted Power Man. One after the other -- Cheshire, Cockroach Hamilton, Mr. Fish, then Spear -- attacked Power Man, draining him of his energy. Cage and Iron Fist then intervened, helping to knock out the mercenaries.

(Shadowland: Power Man#2 (fb) - BTS) - The Flashmob was rounded up and incarcerated at Riker's Island. Donovan, Nightshade's solicitor, was able to secure three of the Flashmob's release, but Commanche, Chemistro and Cheshire Cat had warrants/parole violations and had to stay in jail.

(Spider-Island: Heroes for Hire#1) - The Flashmob, along with Cottonmouth, tried to leave spider-infested Manhattan via a bridge, but were stopped in a furious battle with Misty Knight and her Heroes for Hire (Black Cat, Falcon, Gargoyle, Paladin, Silver Sable).

Nightshade's Flashmob was basically a group of enforcers and could easily re-appear with other established characters.
