Jeff Jeffers

Jeff Jeffers was the Borough President for Brooklyn who sought to drive out local residents so that a new shopping center and stadium could be built, and used heavies like Lone Shark to intimidate the residents so that they would leave. Jeffers also capitalized politically on the destruction left in the wake of battles between heroes and villains. He was about to be elected unopposed when Luke Cage uncovered his plans and he was subsequently arrested.
