Frederick Foswell (of Earth-616) is a villian who tried to take control of the New York City's gangs after Spider-Man temporarily stopped being a hero.


When Spider-Man temporarily hung up his costume, Foswell attempted to take control of the resulting conglomeration of the city's gangs, though to what end, it was unrevealed. Foswell was eventually killed by the Kingpin's henchmen when he took a bullet for Jonah Jameson. He said that Jonah was the only one who ever gave him a second chance, and was content to die having finally repaid his debt. At one point, Foswell took up the identity of the Big Man, who lead a well-organized and powerful network of underworld mobs and gangs. In order to hide his identity, he wore special built-up shoes -- an over-sized padded jacket, and a small amplifier to disguise his voice. He took over all the rackets in the city and declared himself as the head of the crime syndicate. He used his Enforcers to make sure that all his orders were carried out. After serving time for his crimes as the Big Man, Foswell was given a job at the Daily Bugle. He was able to obtain information on underworld goings-on through the use of his fake identity, "Patches" the stoolie. Quick-witted and intuitive, Foswell, on more than one occasion, came close to discovering Spider-Man's secret identity.
