Adrian Toomes (Earth-96283)
The Vulture of Earth-96283 is almost completely identical to his mainstream counterpart, both in character as well as physically.
Adrian Toomes was also one of the first super-villains that Spider-Man confronted, along with his partner Shocker. When both Vulture and Shocker robbed a jewelry store, it was Vulture that managed to elude capture, returning to his hideout in the lower east side of Manhattan in an old clock tower. After Shocker was defeated at the hands of Spider-Man he revealed the location of Vulture's hideout. Spider-Man entered the clock tower, but apparently not quietly enough. Not only was Vulture aware of Spider-Man's presence, but the entire clock tower was booby trapped. Small explosive charges and self-destructing androids littered the entire interior of the tower, making it extremely difficult for Spider-Man to progress. In the end Spider-Man managed to make his way up into the Vulture's small workshop that was set up at the top of the tower. Once discovered, Toomes immediatly took off with the stolen jewels. Spider-Man followed in hot pursuit and probably would have caught Vulture right away if the old bird hadn't damaged overhanging girders and water towers that dangled above the city streets. None of this completely stopped the web-head though. He used his web-fluid to fix up the damages. It was then that Spider-Man once again caught up with Toomes, and the two of them had an intense aerial battle in the middle of a rough rainstorm. Eventually Spider-Man's attacks proved too much for Toomes, who was forced to land on a nearby building several times in order to recuperate. But over time, the old man just couldn't take it any more and he was eventually defeated.
