attack by Apocalypse's
Four Horsemen against Manhattan resulted in a blackout,
convincing many residents that a nuclear war had erupted.
A Vietnam veteran calling himself Ammo
organized a gang which included an unruly pair of street-dwellers
who called themselves the Wildboys. Ammo believed the
doctrine that only the strongest should survive, and he
sent the Wildboys to steal food, fuel, weapons, and drugs
during the blackout. The Wildboys intended to take over
the entire city, but Ammo was imprisoned by the costumed
crimefighter known as Daredevil
and the city soon returned to normal.
The Wildboys lost their delusions of grandeur
and began committing crime sprees of a less dramatic nature.
The following Christmas, the Wildboys began looting and
pillaging the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen in their
souped-up 1968 Pontiac convertible. Daredevil ended their
reign of terror and placed them in police custody.
Sometime later, the Wildboys were freed
by the criminal seductress Typhoid. Together with Ammo,
they defeated Daredevil and nearly killed him. The Wildboys
then continued to terrorize the streets of Hell's Kitchen.
At one point they inadvertently brought a cocaine dealer
to justice when they attempted to steal his drug profits
and ran afoul of the police.
The Wildboys, Jet and Spit, remain at large
at this time, still committing violent acts of vandalism.
It is unknown whether the Wildboys have any other members
than the two listed here.
Jet and Spit possess the normal human strength
of men their ages, heights, and builds who engage in intensive
regular exercise. Neither of them have any known superhuman
powers. Jet and Spit are highly formidable street-fighters
and are greatly skilled in the use of knives and other
conventional street hardware. Spit is also very acrobatic.
