Default Re: [Supers] GURPS Unofficial Handbook to the Marvel Universe, Reboot Edition

Last two from the Spidey-batch:


Real Name: Adrian Toomes.
Occupation: Professional criminal; former electronics engineer.
Legal Status: Citizen of the United States with a criminal record.
Identity: Publicly known.
Other Aliases: None.
Place of Birth: Staten Island, New York.
Marital Status: Unrevealed.
Known Relatives: None.
Group Affiliation: None.
Base of Operations: New York City.
History: Adrian Toomes was an electronics engineer who helped found a small firm with Gregory Bestman. Toomes let Bestman handle all the business aspects while he worked in the firm's research and development lab. Bestman tricked Toomes into signing over his half of the firm, then fired him for perceived slights. Without immediate legal recourse, Toomes decided to resort to burglary. He broke into the lab where he'd been working on a new invention a winged flight harness which utilized a combination of wings and an antigravity generator the firm had purchased from the Wizard and stole the suit (see Wizard).

Toomes trained himself in the use of the suit, and made his debut as the Vulture by harassing and kidnapping Bestman, attempting to force Bestman into admitting in public that he'd swindled Toomes. He clashed twice with Spider-Man before he was captured and sent to prison; in their second confrontation, Spider-Man teamed with Iceman of the X-Men (see Iceman; Spider-Man; X-Men). Ultimately, Bestman told the truth in Toomes's trial, and has been arraigned on charges of his own.

Toomes recently escaped prison in a massive jailbreak led by the Rhino, during which he either regained or duplicated his flight harness (see Rhino). He was recently seen meeting with someone who looked a lot like Mysterio from a distance (see Mysterio). Where and when the Vulture will strike next is anyone's guess.
Height: 5' 11".
Weight: 175 lbs.
Eyes: Hazel.
Hair: Bald, formerly black.
Uniform: Green and black bodysuit, green boots, wings underneath his arms which, when fully extended, extend to twice his arm length.
Strength Level: Adrian Toomes possesses the normal human strength of a man his age, height, and build who engages in regular exercise. The flight harness amplifies his strength by a factor of four, enabling him to lift (press) around 700 pounds.
Known Superhuman Powers: None; all of his abilities stem from his uniform.
Other Abilities: Adrian Toomes is a skilled engineer and inventor, but does not have the ability to create truly revolutionary superscience devices without help. For instance, he designed his flight suit but still needed to acquire the antigravity generator from outside sources rather than inventing it himself.
Weapons and Paraphernalia: The Vulture wears a battlesuit which possesses a pair of wings underneath the arms and a prototype anti-gravity generator to provide lift. The suit also amplifies his strength by a factor of four, as well as giving him protection against most police handguns. While the suit's wings are underneath his arms and extend to three times his arm length when fully deployed, his hands are left free for grabbing and carrying while in flight.

The suit enables him to fly completely silently, maneuvering by flapping his wings like a bird does. In the event that the antigravity unit is disabled, he can still glide for long distances and maneuver in flight. The Vulture is able to attain altitudes up to 11,000 feet above sea level, at which point the air becomes too thin for him to breathe. He can fly for up to six hours before tiring appreciably. The suit is able to maintain speeds up to 95 miles per hour.
