Adrian Toomes is the super villain the Vulture.


Early LifeEdit

Adrian Toomes was a successful businessman who dreamed of one day creating an electro-magnet that would enable a man to fly. His life of crime began when his unscrupulous partner took over their company and fired him. Enraged by what had happened, Toomes stole his prototype harness and swore revenge on his former friend. Using his flying harness, Toomes broke into his old company and robbed them blind. Intoxicated by his new found sense of power, he decided to embark on a citywide crime spree and renamed himself the Vulture! At some point, he teamed up with Shocker.


Vulture hit Spider-Man while he and Shocker were robbing a bank and left Shocker to deal with him while he headed to his lair: an old clocktower on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Spider-Man then climbed his tower, but Vulture escaped, though he was Spidey defeated him atop the Chrysler Building.
