Took and original Vulture cut off his head and replaced it with a Christopher Walkin head from "Sleepy Hollow". Did a black wash on the body, arms and legs to bring out the lines and to make the figure darker. Then painted the wings black and came back with a green dry brushed. Comments and suggestions welcomed.
After an alleged accident Adrian Toomes, the Vulture, told his cellmate, Blackie Drago, the location of his Vulture costume. As Toomes lay on his death-bed and wanting revenge on Spider-Man , he easily gave the information to Drago. Drago lied as he promised Toomes he would use the costume to defeat Spider-Man once and for all.
Later, Drago hijacked a prison car and drove through the prison gates. He found the vulture wings exactly where Toomes said they would be. Drago practiced his flying skills over Manhattan. Drago found that he was stronger than Toomes ever was and more inventive and thus designed a helmet with a short wave receiver. Blackie wasted no time starting a one-man crime wave adopting the mantle of the Vulture. The Vulture became the hot news topic in a matter of days. His only goal was to make money by performing acts of air-piracy. Due to Spider-Man's cold and apparent weakness, Blackie attacked a helicopter and stole its shipment of uncut diamonds without difficulty. His infamy as New York's greatest villain attracted the attention of not only Spider-Man, but also one of Spider-Man's greatest enemies, Kraven the Hunter.
