Was that Ava I heard?

Wasn't it Stern who was the one that gave the Vulture his origin story here? And before Stern had the Vulture ever displayed super-strength before? During all the Lee appearances isn't he just a man with wings?
The Crawl Space is well worth the cost of a single comic book a month.

Nice job as always. A couple of additional points you might find interesting:
1. The cop who was giving Spidey a hard time at the Symposium was none other than Lt. Keating. Presumably before the Foreigner killed him and had him replaced.
2. The farm silo where the Vulture brought Bestman after kidnaping him was the Vulture's old headquarters from way back in Amazing Spider-Man #7 (maybe seen in other appearances as well; not sure). It's little continuity touches like that which make Roger Stern one of the best writers Marvel ever had.

Roger Stern did a great job with Adrian Toomes's backstory in these issues, but my favorite Vulture story will always be Funeral Arrangements by J.M. DeMatteis.
