"Maw" Famon was the mother of Cut and Muscle Famon. She was an older woman with short dark hair.

When Cut and Muscle were being arrested by Jim Trailer and Dick Tracy, they were able to get a signal to Maw in her home. Maw freed her sons from the authorities, but was soon mortally wounded during a shootout with police and federal agents. Before dying, she changed clothes with Cut so he would have a chance to escape.

Notes Edit

  • While Maw was aware of (and apparently approved of) her sons' criminal activities, it was not established how much she was involved on a day-to-day basis. It therefore cannot be determined if the other members of the gang were her associates.
  • Maw Famon was apparently inspired by Ma Barker, the matriarch of a notorious criminal family. Ma Barker had been killed by FBI agents in early 1935.
