Once an operative of the elite intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D., Blackie Drago was decommissioned for unknown resons and became a criminal mercenary. He was hired by disgruntled inventor Elijah Stern to kill Donald Roxxon, head of the Roxxon Corporation, as part of a revenge scheme. Stern wanted to use Vibranium as a theoretically limitless source of power, but Roxxon failed to see his work's potential, and then fired him as part of a corporate downsizing. Stern stole money from Roxxon accounts to fund his work, and resolved to destroy Donald Roxxon using technology he had invented for the corporation, including a flying combat suit resembling a vulture. He came into direct conflict with the Wild Pack, who were hired to protect Roxxon, and was defeated by Spider-Man and taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, imprisoned in the Triskelion.
The Six & Death of Spider-Man
Vulture was again detained at the Triskelion for some time before being freed by Norman Osborn and subsequently joining him and the other freed inmates. He and the escaped inmates re-approached Elijah Stern in providing them equipment, where Drago regained his wings, before arriving at the Parker's residence. Drago and his allies fought the Human Torch and Iceman and was subsequently subdued again by Spider-Man. He tried once more to attack Spider-Man, but was electrocuted when Electro shorted out.
