Also one of Spider Man's adversaries...

The Vulture made his first appearence in Spider Man #2 in May 1963.

The Vulture wears a green body suit and has a pair of mechanical wings which enable him to fly and increase his strength to peak human condition, even though Toomes is an old man.. He's mostly a petty thief and not some world destroying super-villian. Still he is a key villian in Spider-Man's rogues gallery.

During the 90's Marvel Comics tried to soup up the Vulture by teaming him up with someone who gave him a device that sucked the life force out of Spider-Man and made the Vulture young again. It also cured his fatal cancer as an added bonus.

This lasted for about a year until they made him old again, by having some villain named DK (decay) drain the life out of him. All very silly in the long run, but that was Marvel in the 90's. ______________________________________
