- "You know when I went away to do my ten, every newspaper in town dragged my name through the shit. You were the only one who did it without mentioning my kids, always grateful for that."
- ―Silvio to Ben Urich
Meetings with Ben Urich
Silvio had a meeting with Ben Urich to discuss the recent criminal activities in Hell's Kitchen. Silvio claimed the previous head mobster had been murdered and there was a new criminal leader, only nobody knew who it was and what they were planning. Silvio made it clear that the reason he had given Urich the information was that when the newspapers wrote articles exposing his mob, Urich was the only one who did not mention Silvio's family in his article. After the meeting with Urich, Silvio moved to Florida fearing he could become the next victim of the new leader.
- In the comics, there was a notable crime lord named Silvio Manfredi who was an aging criminal that kept seeking the fountain of youth. This ultimately lead to him becoming a cyborg and battling the likes of Spider-Man, Cloak and Dagger. It is possible that this Silvio just has the name by coincidence as it is implied to be his surname rather than his first.
