Religion: manifestly non-religious
Name: Tommy Fude
First Appearance: Daily Bugle (vol. 1) #1 (Dec. 1996): "Front Page"
Number of Appearances: 3
Employer: Food Factory restaurants chain
Occupation: business owner
Reporter Betty Brant interviewed Tommy Fude about his restaurant chain, Food Factory. Mobsters gunned down Tommy's brother, who was co-owner of the business. Tommy later kidnapped Betty from her apartment. Tommy told the reporter about how his business had been losing money and needed cash. Tommy had borrowed money from mobster Morgan Hall. When Jimmy found out about the mob money, he tried to tell Betty, which is when he was gunned down. When police surrounded the building they were in, intent on rescuing Betty and arresting Tommy, he shot himself in the head and killed himself. Tommy Fude did not necessarily commit suicide out of guilt. He appears to have been a fairly crooked and immoral person who was willing to deal with mobsters and kidnap an innocent woman to prevent his secrets from being exposed. Tommy's criminal actions mark him as manifestly non-religious and his suicide makes it more clear that he was non-religious.
