Episode Summary

EDIT
The Vulture Has Landed
Spidey encounters the Vulture attempting to kidnap a scientist from his apartment, but is unable to stop him. The Vulture has kidnapped a number of scientists recently, and Peter is sent to contact Harry Osborn by Jameson to get a good quote. After losing his clothes as Spidey, Peter borrows some of Harry's clothes from his apartment, and is soon mistaken for Osborn by the Vulture, who kidnaps him. The Vulture takes Peter to his airship base, where he finds the other kidnapped scientists being forced to work for the Vulture. He forces Peter to develop enough radar-jamming paint to cover his ship, and Peter develops it using Harry's notes. After coating the Vulture's ship with the invisible paint, the Vulture leaves and Peter becomes Spider-Man. The other scientists are freed, but Spidey is thrown off the airship when the Vulture returns. Spidey lands safely and later discovers that the Jupiter space probe containing rare space rocks is scheduled to splashdown in one hour. He figures out that the Vulture's plans are to capture the probe and steal the rare gems. Spidey makes it on the recovery ship, and prepares to battle the Vulture to prevent the theft of the space probe.moreless

      • This episode is available on the VHS Marvel Comics Video Library Volume 12 "The Vulure: The Vulture Has Landed".

      • Harry Osborn is mentioned (but not seen) and described as Peter's "millionaire inventor friend" by Jameson. There is no mention of Harry being related to Norman Osborn (the Green Goblin), implying that this episode was written as if to take place after Norman's death (which had occurred in the comics a few years prior), when Harry was indeed wealthy as a result of his father dying.
