Pete, you understand?|Vulture to [[Peter Parker|Spider-Man]]|Spider-Man: Homecoming}}After the Battle of New York, Adrian Toomes and his salvage team [[Bestman Salvage]] were responsible for cleaning up the [[Leviathan]] crash at Grand Central Station. He was shocked and angered to find out that he and his fellow members were being replaced by the [[Department of Damage Control]], formed by [[Anthony Stark|Tony Stark]]. So much so that when Agent [[Foster]] claimed he shouldn't have over extended himself, Toomes punched him in the face. Afterwards, Toomes convinced his crew members, to keep the salvaged Chitauri technology taken from the Station, and turn to a life of crime to provide for his family.
  +
  +
Over the next few years, [[Phineas Mason]] developed technology for Toomes and his crew that made it easier for them to pull of heists and steal more technology to develop into weapons and sell on for profit.
  +
  +
[[Jackson Brice]] and [[Herman Schultz]] were set to make a deal with [[Aaron Davis]], but Brice was too cocky and wanted to show off what the weapons could do. This drew the attention of [[Peter Parker|Spider-Man]] who broke up the deal and made chase to Schultz and Brice. Mason made Toomes aware of the situation and, angered, Toomes donned the [[Vulture suit]] and intervened, taking care of Spider-Man himself by dropping him in a river. Toomes and his crew returned to their base and Toomes scolded Brice for his carelessness and cockiness. He fired him from the crew. Brice threatened to expose Toomes, so Toomes picked up what he believed to be an [[Anti-Gravity Gun]] and shot Brice, disintegrating him. Toomes was surprised, but handed over the [[Shocker Gauntlet]] to Schultz calling him the "Shocker" now.
  +
  +
Toomes and his crew discovered that Damage Control were transporting some salvaged goods to their Deep Storage Vault in [[Maryland]]. They set up a heist where Vulture hit the van and went inside to scope out the goods. However, they were foiled by Spider-Man. Toomes was able to escape and left Spider-Man trapped inside the van. Toomes was furious at another failed mission and claimed he wanted Spider-Man dead. Mason offered to upgrade his suit with a high-altitude anti-vacuum seal, but Toomes declined. Schultz then pointed out that Spider-Man had been in Washington and saved a decathlon team from dying at the [[Washington Monument]]. Toomes, desperate for money, asked Mason if they had enough tech to go ahead with a deal with [[MacDonald Gargan|Mac Gargan]]. Mason confirmed that they did and Toomes told him to set it up.
  +
  +
On the [[Staten Island Ferry]], Toomes waited for an affirmation that the deal was a go but, thanks to an interruption from Spider-Man and the [[FBI]], Toomes was forced to don the Vulture suit and intervene once more, getting Schultz free and attacking Spider-Man, fleeing the scene as Spider-Man inadvertently caused a Chitauri energy pulse which tore the ferry in two.
  +
  +
Toomes was once again enraged that the deal had fallen through. Schultz even considered quitting, worried that the FBI and [[Anthony Stark|Iron Man]] had now gotten involved. Toomes convinced him to stay for one final heist, giving Mason the go ahead for the Vulture upgrade meaning they could pull off one final heist, an airborne one, to rob the cargo plane transporting tech from [[Avengers Tower]].
  +
  +
On the day of the heist, his [[Elizabeth Toomes|daughter]]'s homecoming dance, Toomes greeted [[Peter Parker]] at the door as he came to take Liz to the dance. Peter was unnerved by Toomes, but he just thought it was due to nerves meeting his date's father. Toomes chaperoned the couple to the dance but during the journey he realised that Peter was Spider-Man when Liz commented that he was always disappearing around the same times that Spider-Man had foiled Toomes' plans. Toomes gave Peter a pass because he saved Liz's life but warned him that if he interfered tonight he would kill him and everyone he loved.
  +
  +
Toomes returned to his base and got ready for the heist. Spider-Man stepped in despite Toomes' warnings and Toomes activated his Vulture wings remotely, having them fly around the room taking out support pillars. Peter tried to convince him to not go through with his plans, but Toomes' mind was already made up. Peter pointed out that he hadn't hit him once and Toomes stated that he wasn't trying to. The building collapsed on Peter, trapping him under the wreckage. Vulture flew away and initiated the heist on the cargo plane, using the new technology to latch onto the outside and investigate the technology inside.
  +
  +
As Toomes looked around, Spider-Man, managing to free himself from the rubble, broke the anti-vacuum seal and brought the plane crashing down. Furious, Toomes returned to his suit and battled with Spider-Man, refusing to leave empty handed he picked up a crate and tried to flee. Peter tried to warn him that his wings were going to explode, trying to pull him back, but Toomes kept fighting. Peter eventually saved him and left him webbed up with the crates of technology for the FBI and [[Harold Hogan|Happy Hogan]] to find.
  +
  +
Toomes was put in jail where he encountered Mac Gargan. Gargan claimed that Toomes knew who Spider-Man was and asked him for intel so his guys on the outside could deal with Spider-Man. Toomes refused, claiming that if he knew who Spider-Man was, he'd be dead already.

"Eight years. Not a word from the feds, nothing from those Halloween costume wearing bozos up there in Stark Tower. And then all of a sudden, this little bastard in red tights shows up, and he thinks he can tear down everything I've built. Really? I'm gonna kill him."
―Vulture[src]

Adrian Toomes is the former owner of a New York City salvage company called Bestman Salvage who swore revenge after Tony Stark drove him out of business by replacing them with Department of Damage Control. Equipping himself with an exo-suit built from Chitauri technology, Toomes took on the identity of Vulture only to come into conflict with both Iron Man and Spider-Man.

BiographyEdit

Spider-Man: HomecomingEdit

"And don't you ever, ever interfere with my business again, 'Cause if you do, I'll kill you, and everybody you love. I'll kill you dead. That's what I'll do to protect my family. Pete, you understand?"
