Scorpions are nocturnal hunters that specialize in preying upon insects, spiders and earthworms. Their menacing tails contain poison to kill prey quickly while protecting themselves from potential threats.
Before Jack Abramoff became America’s most scrutinized lobbyist, he made only one movie: 1989 Cold War classic “Red Scorpion”, featuring Dolph Lundgren. The film became notorious for its overt propaganda, collaboration with South African apartheid government, and financial misdeeds.
Early Life and Education
Once Citizens for America had been disbanded and law school was completed, Jack Abramoff relocated to Los Angeles and started writing the screenplay for “Red Scorpion,” his Reagan Doctrine parable in action-packed Technicolor.

Gargan possesses superhuman strength thanks to being genetically enhanced with that of the Scorpion’s. Furthermore, his reflexes are enhanced.
Gargan was known for his exceptional strength and speed. Additionally, he used his mechanical tail as an attacking weapon to attack opponents, adhering to surfaces and wall crawling for extra mobility. Once confronted Spider-Man in The Raft and attempted poisoning New York City’s water supply but was foiled by him – later becoming one of his main adversaries and still owned by its original founders.

Scorpion Jacks of California specializes in manufacturing double-acting heavy equipment jacks and floor stand systems for use in mining operations. These double-acting models come equipped with single-stage, 2-stage and multistage telescopic rod configurations and feature load locking blocks as an added safety measure.
Their end user is typically a repair technician working in a truck shop, truck lube shop, fleet maintenance facility or municipal maintenance facility. Jacks may be used for removing tires, performing brake or lube work or for general lubrication maintenance tasks.
The Scorpion Jack allows technicians to lift either the front or rear of a truck at one go, unlike conventional bottle jacks which lift one corner at a time. It is safer and keeps technicians off of the ground longer to reduce fatigue and injuries while increasing through-put for shops.
