History

The organization known as VULTURE (not an acronym) was a vast international crime cartel that was infiltrated, thwarted and eventually completely destroyed by J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter. Their secretive leader utilized a number of different aliases including: Mister Vulture, Mister V, and Faceless (a.k.a. Marco Xavier).

Shortly after retiring his John Jones persona, J'onn came into conflict with cartel operatives when he traveled to the French Riviera. While in the Riviera, he investigated Marco Xavier, an international playboy with supposed links to organized crime. He used his shape-shifting powers to follow Xavier as he left his villa in a high-powered sports car. Xavier lost control of the vehicle and it plunged off a mountain road, apparently killing him in the process, his body consumed by the blazing crash. J'onnz took advantage of the accident by quickly transforming himself into a Xavier lookalike, and then dangled himself from the branch of a cliffside tree before the police could arrive. The disguised "Marco Xavier" was taken to his villa to recover. Slowly but surely, using his disguise as Marco Xavier, the Martian Manhunter worked his way up through the cartel, while maintaining the original Marco's role as an outside contractor uninterested in joining VULTURE. Eventually, J'onn managed to bring the organization down while working on the inside.
