Wormy Marron

One of the most grotesque villains in the entire history of the strip; Wormy’s face looks as if it is made of live earthworms. He chained Dick Tracy to the back of his car and drove at top speed down a highway, intending to drag Tracy to death but merely injuring him.  He would later get a show on Ted Tellum’s radio station and nearly killed the broadcaster before Tracy shot him and took him to jail.

In 2011 we learned through a simple conversation and newspaper headline that Wormy and Thistle Dew were killed in an Armory Fire in another U.S. city.
