IN THE BEGINNING..., Part 2 of 2. Origin of the Vulture (in flashback).After clashing at the New York Coliseum, the Amazing Spider-Man pursues the Vulture to Staten Island. The cagey old bird has kidnapped his former business partner and taken refuge in a farmhouse (previously used as a hideaway). The Vulture thinks he's given Spidey the slip. But instead he's given the web-slinger a chance to clip his aged wings. It's another titanic tussle between the Vulture and your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
