History:
(ToyFare Spring Special - "Singular Sensation" article) - Due to unrevealed circumstances, equal parts of the villains Vulture and Lizard were combined to form the entity known only as Raptor.

Comments: Created by Pablo Raimondi.

    The character of Raptor was created as an action figure prototype sketch by Pablo Raimondi for Toy Biz's Spider-Man: Arachniphobia toy line. Unfortunately, since the action figure was never made, we don't have a card or box with flavor text to give more of a background on the character, other than he mixed equal parts Vulture and the Lizard.

    It is likely that Raptor exists in the same reality as the other Arachniphobia mashup characters, Earth-96201. While we did not have confirmation in the article, Raptor is likely some sort of human mutate, given his lizard-like appearance.

    Oh, and for the record, Man-Lizard, a figure that WAS released in the Arachniphobia toy line, was a mashup of Spider-Man & Lizard sort of. While this character, Raptor, appears to be an amalgamation of Vulture and the actual Lizard, Man-Lizard's mashup occurred because Dr. Curt Connors used the neogenic recombinator on Spider-Man during a period where Spider-Man had been transformed into the monstrous Man-Spider and a freak accident caused some of Dr. Connors' own DNA to combine with Spider-Man's without any change whatsoever to the actual Connors/Lizard.
