To be fair, Smilin' Stan was savvy enough to realize that the organization he was riffing on was... sensitive about their depiction in media.The Maggia hasn't come up in FF before, but they've made themselves well known in other Marvel books, particularly Spider-Man and Daredevil; they're one of the most expansive and powerful (and relatively non-super powered) crime syndicates in the world. Which you probably guessed by the fact that they almost share their name with another famous criminal organization.
Look, sometimes Stan kind of goes for the obvious name; can't all be Otto Octavious.
