The Death-Throws juggle almost all the time, even when discussing with somebody else.

The Death-Throws practice juggling

When springing Crossfire, Ringleader relied heavily on :

  • Smoke grenades.
  • Sudden and well-coordinated attacks to take out cops all at once.
  • A getaway van.

When ambushing Cap and Hawkeye, they relied on :

  • A dark warehouse.>/li>
  • A sudden flood of dazzling light.
  • Pre-positioned Death-Throws.
  • A huge steel mesh nets with heavy weights.
  • Rehearsed moves to quickly surround an opponent.

Catching isolated targets in a crossfire seems to be his preferred tactic.


Quotes

“Twenty feet away. Everyone’s in position. I’ll give the signal.”

“As you may recall, you have yet to pay Oddball and Bombshell for their assistance during your ill-fated with Hawkeye. At a thousand dollars a day for five days each, that comes to ten thousand.”

“Objects in motion, everyone ? Switch !”

“Execute formation !”

“You are surrounded and outnumbered. Each of us is highly proficient at a different deadly projectile. Throw down your weapons at once or you won’t know what hit you !”
