Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #44-45
Issue(s): Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #44, Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #45
The Vulture tries to take over the New York mob but Spidey mucks things up. It wasn't really a good fit for him anyway, in my opinion.
A lot of the Vulture's business is run by his nephew, Malachai.
Malachai is killed in this issue
The Vulture's main competitor is some guy who thinks he should run the mob because he can lift a lot of weights.
And to be fair, that is a lot of weights.
Not a terrible story but not anything special, either. A little weak for Roger Stern, but it did start with Wolfman. I generally like Leialoha, and Severin is a competent veteran, but i really can't say much for the art in either issue.

This may have been an uncompleted inventory story; Marv Wolfman had defected to DC by this time.
ive never understood how un-super villains like the vulture and doc ock could absorb punches to the face like those in the above panels. since he has no head protection youd think vulture would be out with one punch.
Roger Stern eventually retconned the Vulture so that his flight harness gives him minor superhuman strength.
yeah, but that still doesnt explain why a spidey punch to his unprotected head doesnt knock him out.
