Owl is one of the biggest crimelords in New York City.


Little is known about the life of the man known only as Owl.

For some reason his eyes are pure white.

Crimelords Meeting

Somehow he managed to move up in the criminal underground. So much that he became one of the biggest names and was part of a special group headed by the Kingpin of Crime.

He was invited to a meeting among the crimelords held by Kingpin and attended by himself, Silvermane, Hammerhead, and several other crimelords. The meeting was held in a mutual location in a large skyscrapper with a dome on top. Despite this, Kingpin was still at the head of the table surrounded by the others and it was he who hosted the event.

Silvermane Owl Meeting

Owl and the others were sitting around a round table. They listened as Kingpin explained that their collective criminal empires had received record-breaking incomes.

However, Silvermane interrupted pressing a button that trapped the criminal giant. Silvermane started a video saying that the superhero Spider-Man was interfering with their operations.

Owl Hammerhead Shocked

Owl and Hammerhead were shocked when Kingpin suddenly broke out of his restraints.

Kingpin stood and told them all that he was undergoing an operation to rid the world of the Spider-Man once and for all.

Soon after Kingpin broke Chameleon, Mysterio, Scorpion, Shocker, Rhino, and Doctor Octopus out of Ryker's Island forming the Insidious Six. However, Kingpin and Silvermane began a war between the two that lasted several months.

It is unknown what happened to Owl during this war and afterwards.


Owl was unvoiced.

This is the first version of the character outside the comics and currently the only animated version.
