From my vulture I'll often gloat,

Sky pirate Don Karnage, originally from the 90s cartoon Tale Spin flew (and often bragged about) his ship "The Iron Vulture." He wears a blue coat with shiny gold buttons. He was brought back for the 2010s revival of DuckTales, in which he sings, dances, and leads his crew in elaborate musical numbers. Not returning for the DuckTales appearance, though, was his nemesis from Tale Spin, Baloo, the bear.
