Stomach Tether

All right. If you look closely, you can see that the briefcase is somehow tethered to his stomach, with some sort of loop thing coming out of his costume. Which is functional, but at the same time ridiculous. However, one has to wonder where he was keeping that web spray. I'm guessing he was keeping it in that ruffle of feathers on his neck, as that's the only possible place he could be keeping it.

Oh, and if Spider-Man falls, he can just web-sling to a building. So he's really in no danger at all, unless he runs out of web-fluid.

Wouldn't it be easier to cut the webbing?

Dammit, Vulture. You know he'll survive the fall by making a web trampoline between two buildings or something!

Meanwhile, you're in New York. The ocean is right there. Fly out there and let him drop.

I may be missing some background here, but Vulture doesn't strike me as a particularly intelligent super-villain. There's been no sign of a Doc Ock-style secret laboratory where he invents new and useful tools of villainy. Plus, the Vulture just recently broke out of jail -- what, two days ago in strip time? -- and hasn't had time to do anything more than sign a lease on a Villain's Lair and rob a rooftop shindig.

So where did he get this special Spideyweb-destroying spray foam? Buy it at Home Depot?

Is the vulture secretly Batman of stately Wayne Manor?

The original Vulture, Adrian Toomes, is a pretty smart guy. I could see him inventing the web-dissolving spray. Blackie Drago, this new Vulture, just looks like some thug who knows how to put together a flight harness. So I have no idea where he got a web dissolution spray. Chances are it's a can of Lysol in a special gun.

Didn't Drago get his clock cleaned by the original Vulture in ASM #63? Been years since I read the issue but he probably got defeated because he was doing stupid stuff like this. I can see Spidey having trouble with Toomes, but Drago, when he's behaving like an imbecile?

I also have to add, that these must be the not razor-tipped wings, otherwise, the shark-repellent, er, I mean, the web-dissolving spray, is superfluous at best.

I don't think Drago has razor-tipped wings.
