Who Are The Tracksuit Mafia?
The Tracksuit Mafia were also dubbed as the ‘Tracksuit Draculas’ by Hawkeye, and are a Mafia group that operates in New York City. They first appeared in Hawkeye Volume 4 #1 back in 2012 and have become prominent enemies of the famous archer.
Unlike many of the other characters in Marvel, the Tracksuit Mafia have no powers or abilities and simply use their brute force and weapons to fight against Hawkeye and Kate Bishop.
One of the most famous characters to come from the Tracksuit Mafia is Lucky The Pizza Dog, who was previously owned by the Mafia until turning on them to help save Hawkeye.
The group first come into contact with Hawkeye when one of their members attempts to take over a building owned by the fellow avenger. Hawkeye goes on to defeat the Tracksuit Mafia and keeps a hold of the building, but the mafia then proceeds to hire Kazimierz Kazimierczak, also known as ‘The Clown’, to take out Hawkeye.
Of course, this only ended poorly for both The Clown and the Tracksuit Mafia as Hawkeye had the help of Kate Bishop to take them down.
We’ll have to see how things go for the Tracksuit Draculas in Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye next week when episode 3 streams on Disney Plus.
