Guff (Iron Man enemy) (Marvel Comics)


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game


Guff is a mediocre character who appeared once on one page, in a terrible 1973 Iron Man issue (vol. 1 #57, if you must know).

So obviously he gets a profile whereas *your* favourite character still has zero coverage. 🙁

  • Marital Status: Unrevealed.
  • Known Relatives: None.
  • Group Affiliation: Gene Kahn’s union.
  • Base Of Operations: East Coast of the US.
  • Height: 6’5” Weight: 230 lbs.
  • Eyes: Brown Hair: Brown


Powers and Abilities

Guff is a big brawler. His fists do not feel pain, and are further reinforced by brass knuckles — allowing him to hit like a piledriver. He’s very good at punching people.

His buddy, Mack, is a tough thug with a metal bar.


Guff, a legbreaker for hire, was employed by the Mandarin. The Mandarin was then using his “Gene Kahn ” identity. “Kahn” was an union leader who triggered considerable trouble within and without Stark Industries by accusing Stark of being in league with communists.

When Iron Man assaulted “Gene Kahn”, the “union leader” called Guff and his buddy Mack in. Guff punched Iron Man something good, but was taken out with one blow.

All the other thugs and union men then fled, leaving the Mandarin to confront Iron Man alone.

Maybe Guff knows Manslaughter Marsdale, who is much more famous. I mean, relatively speaking.



See peekchur.


Just a basic brute with poor grammar. What else ?


“Know why Mr. Kahn hired me, Iron Man ? ‘cause I got fists that don’t feel pain ! See ? I can pound you — batter you ! It don’t hurt me at all.”
