Powers/Abilities: Slade Mallory was a common criminal who could easily fire a handgun, although his aim was not that good.
(Human Fly#6 (fb) - BTS) - Known by the police for his criminal activities, Slade Mallory secretly ran a stolen car ring under Funland Amusement Park to supply otherwise expensive cars to dictators in South America.
(Human Fly#6) - Accompanied by his henchman Clyde at Funland Amusement Park, Slade Mallory used a target shooting stand to activate a hidden door that led to his underground garage of stolen cars being fixed for black market export. Suspicious, stuntman the Human Fly followed him, overcoming another henchman, Harry, in a slow boat Tunnel of Fear ride. Harry alerted Slade, who tried to shoot at the Human Fly, but was instead knocked into the water by him. The Human Fly discovered the workshop, but was pursued by Slade, who fired his gun without much accuracy. The chase led to a parachute jump spinning ride where Slade and several henchmen took the ride up, shooting at the Human Fly as he clambered up. However, the stuntman's friends instead caused the ride to spin much faster, leaving Slade and his men dizzy and sick. Still giddy, Slade was arrested by the police.

I'm guessing he answered to a bigger crime boss, but who...?
He had a purple suit on the front cover, but orange in the inside pages.
