The Vulture: Blackie Drago

Ah. Well, it looks like I was right on the money when I said it looked like Blackie Drago. Now, I've never seen Blackie Drago in action so this should be an interesting experience.

it's about time somebody called one of these characters out for talking to himself

And by striking at the very heart of a Spiderman character too - what threat could be greater than loss of TV priveleges?

I like the guard's attitude. "Say, that Drago guy is talking to himself about he's planning to bust outta here tonight. Better shut him up before he gives any details that would assist us in stopping him! Now where did I leave my neck?"

I'm fairly sure this is the first time I've seen the word "interesting" used to describe a plot in this strip. At least without a modifier of "un-" before it.

Just replace "Vulture" with "The Monarch" and you have an episode of the Venture Bros.

Somehow, though, I don't think that the guards can strip a guy of his privileges just for talking...yelling, maybe, but not for talking.

Anywho, it looks like something good might actually come of this. Then again, this is only the second strip with the villain.

Never seen Blackie in action? Have we ever seen ANYONE in Spider-Man in action?

Scott- They should make a Venture Brothers comic strip. That would be perhaps the greatest thing ever.

Okay, so you got yourself a super-villain in the slammer. Where do you put him? Maximum security? A specially-constructed impervious cell in the super-villain wing of Alcatraz? Airlock on an asteroid?

Nope. You stick him in a plain ol' jail cell right out of Andy of Mayberry, and leave No-Neck in charge of containment. No-Neck, who doesn't bat an eye when Vulture openly talks about his escape plan right in front of him? Smaaart.

Ooh Blackie Drago, that was quite a surprise there. Nice. LOL at guard telling him to STFU! ^_^
