NAME ORIGIN
    Malboro is thought to be a reference to Marlboro cigarettes, which the brand itself is named after Great Marlborough Street in London where the original cigarette factory was located, due to the creature's penchant for exuding toxic fumes. A menace is something that threatens to cause evil, harm or injury. The word comes from the Latin minaciae meaning "threats".
