Biography

Battle of New York Clean Up

"When I was a kid, I used to draw cowboys and Indians."
"Actually, um, it's Native American."
"Yeah. Tell you what, though. Not bad, is it?"
"No, yeah. Kid's got a future."
"Yeah, well... we'll see."
Adrian Toomes and Phineas Mason[src]

After New York City was saved from the Chitauri Invasion due to the actions of the Avengers, Liz Toomes drew a picture of Hawkeye, Hulk, Black Widow, Captain America and Iron Man, revering them as heroes, and gave the drawing to her father, Adrian Toomes. Toomes brought the drawing with him to show to his friend Phineas Mason when they were cleaning up the mess at Grand Central Station, with Toomes remarking that he drew "cowboys and Indians" as a child as opposed to his child's drawings of the world's new superheroes. Mason acknowledged Liz's artistic ability and told Toomes that she had a future ahead of her, to which Toomes glanced up at Stark Tower and declared "We'll see".[2]

"Did Liz get a new top?"
"No, you've seen that before. But never with that skirt."
"We should probably stop staring before it gets creepy though."
"Yeah.""
Peter Parker, Ned Leeds[src]

In the weeks leading up to the Homecoming dance, Toomes was seen during most of the setup work, indicating that she was heading the project. [2]

Studying for the Decathlon

While quizzing the team for the Decathlon, Peter told the team he could not make the Decathlon because he needed to be in New York in case Stark needed him for the "Stark Internship". Toomes expressed her disappointment at this because Peter was their best teammate.[2]

Liz talking to her friends about the Avengers.

Toomes discussed Spider-Man's attempt to foil the Robbery at Queens Community Bank and announced her romantic interest in him, prompting Ned Leeds to impulsively declare that Peter Parker knew Spider-Man and that they were friends, despite Parker's attempts to dissuade them. Unwilling to believe Leeds, Flash Thompson challenged Parker and Leeds to show up at Toomes' party that night and to bring Spider-Man. Toomes replied that she did not mind if Parker comes but was aware that he might not be able to since he was usually preoccupied.[2]

House Party

Liz hosted a party at her house later that night with many of her classmates showing up. When Leeds and Parker showed up, Toomes expressed her delight and surprise, as she was not expecting them to attend the party at all. Much to her disappointment though, Parker left the party soon after, initially to change into his Spider-Man outfit, but winding up investigating an arms deal by her father's subordinates.

Peter, learning that the Vulture is planning a heist in Maryland, decided to rejoin the Decathlon team due to Maryland's close proximity to Washington, D.C.. On the bus Toomes quizzes the team and when Parker answered she told him it was good to have him back.

Liz talking to Peter about her plans for the future.

When they arrived at the Hotel, Parker decided to leave for Maryland. Leaving his room however, he ran into Toomes and his teammates going to the pool because Toomes read that rebellious group activities bring them closer together. She told Peter to join them in the pool, but Peter leaves for Maryland anyway. In his fight with the Vulture however, Peter is knocked out and subsequently trapped in the D.O.D.C. vault, causing him to miss the Decathlon, which they end up winning.

Toomes then puts the phone through the X-Ray and the call is disconnected. The team went up the monument when the bomb in Leeds' backpack detonated, trapping them inside. By the time Parker arrived the only people left in the elevator were Leeds, Toomes, and the Decathlon teacher. Peter saved Leeds and the teacher but barely saves Toomes from falling before falling himself.[2]

"You do?"
"You're terrible at keeping secrets."
"You'd be surprised."

After Parker was reprimanded by Stark for destroying the Staten Island Ferry, he returned to a normal life and bumped into Toomes later on. In this meeting, Parker confessed his crush on her to which she responded that she knew and reciprocated his feelings. Parker, emboldened by this turn of events, asked Toomes to the dance, which she accepted.[2]

Toomes is left behind by Peter Parker

"I gotta go. I'm... I'm sorry. You don't deserve this."
Peter Parker to Liz Toomes[src]

When Parker arrived at her house he was unnerved to discover that the Vulture was Toomes' father. When dropping the two off at the dance, he tells Toomes to go in first, so he could give Parker "the Dad Talk" (in actuality, he threatened Parker to stay out of his way and to not reveal anything to Toomes). Parker, conflicted, ultimately chose to leave Toomes in order to prevent the Vulture from hijacking and raiding the Stark Supply Plane headed to the New Avengers Facility, which he succeeded in.[2]
