The Duel at Coney Island was the third confrontation between Spider-Man and Vulture that took place after the hijacked cargo plane they were fighting on crashed.
Peter Parker left the homecoming dance to stop Adrian Toomes from selling illegal weapons despite his threats. Parker was confronted and nearly beaten by the Shocker, only to be saved by Ned Leeds.
Parker tells Leeds to help him track down the Vulture. When Spider-Man found him at his lair, Toomes tries to justify his actions in which Spider-Man refuse to listen. Toomes summoned his Exo-Suit and breaking the support beams around his lair, trapping Spider-Man under a pile of rubble and leaving him to suffocate.
With Parker seemingly being crushed to death as his hideout fell apart around him, Toomes stepped outside and donned his Vulture Wings which had been upgraded by the Tinkerer.
Encouraged by this realisation, Spider-Man regained his resolve and began to painfully push the rubble off of him. Finally, Spider-Man broke free of his entrapment and determinedly pursued Vulture.
Spider-Man webbed on to Vulture as he flown toward the Stark Cargo Plane. Unaware of his presence, Vulture continued his hijacking. Crawling on the plane, Spider-Man attempted to remove Vulture's Wings that were covering the hole he made. It wasn't long before Vulture learned about his presence and another fierce fight happened in the sky.
Lacking his tech suit's advanced capabilities, Spider-Man could only improvise and dodged Vulture's relentless attacks. Their fight resulted in extensive damage to the cargo plane.
When Spider-Man realised that the plane was about to crash into New York City, he used his Web-Shooters and strength to change the direction of the plane. Spider-Man succeeded and the plane crashed into the beach of Coney Island.
