Brief History

Gripes was a petty thug and bully that was taken to jail alongside his buddy, Sugar Face after they were taken down by Spider Man during a mugging. Gripes, Sugar Face and two fellow prisoners named Pigeon and Honcho befriended the Vulture during their stay. Honcho was an engineer that attained the information on the Vulture's flying suit and created their own vulture wings after all four men were released early for being model prisoners. All four men were given a suit and called themselves the Vulturions. They pulled a bank robbery with their wings one time but Gripes continued to mug people and stole a woman's social security check while Honcho repaired their wings a few days later. Honcho wanted Gripes and the rest of the Vulturions to test out their suits and ordered them to not engage Spider Man if they see him because it was just a scouting expedition. However, Gripes saw Spider Man and decided to take him on before his back up arrived. Spider Man would eventually engage all four Vulturions but Gripes and the rest of the gang were easily defeated.   


Gripes was created by Louise Simonson and Greg Larocque in 1985 and first appeared in Web of Spider-Man # 1.
