    So, Joseph Manfredi. I guess they're taking advantage of finally having the Spider-Man IP rights. For those who don't know, "Manfredi" is the last name of the crime boss Silvermane, real name Silvio Manfredi, one of the Kingpin's major rivals for top boss of the New York City criminal underworld and a fairly recurrent enemy of Spider-Man.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    Yeah, Veronica Mars is where I know him from. Vinnie Van Lowe was such a hilarious scumbag.

    They used a character who was clearly Silvio Manfredi (although they only called him by his first name) in the Daredevil series, which was done before the Sony deal was finalized.

    Rights to Silvermane don't factor into this. In comics Joseph Manfredi is Silvermane's son, goes by Blackwing, debuted as Daredevil's foe and has never appeared in Spider-Man titles.

    It's not necessarily that clear cut. Kang has been almost exclusively an Avengers villain, but because it was revealed--20 years after his debut--that he's Reed Richards' father, Fox owns the character's movie rights.

    Since when he's Reed Richards' father? If he's tied with FF rights, it's more because he's also Rama-Tut, and thus first appeared in Fantastic Four.
