Biography

The young life of Sergei Kravinoff was very difficult as the son of Russian Aristocrats in Volgograd and St. Petersburg, Russia. With Dimitri becoming the illegitimate son of Sergei’s father, Sergei would torment his talented half-brother in response from the beatings he received from his own alcoholic father. Yet the relationship among the Kravinoff’s were unstable, Dimitri still admired his older half-brother as he entertained Sergei with his mimicking abilities. Life would hit hard for the Kravinoff’s when the Bolshevik Revolution forced the Kravinoff’s into immigration. When Sergei’s father died, his mother was forced into an asylum as both Sergei and Dimitri were forced into becoming orphans. Upon visiting his mother, Sergei would gain arachnophobia after seeing his mother mentally tormented in a spider-infested asylum. Later his mother would commit suicide and this would increase Sergei’s fear for spiders and be the first step for developing an unstable and obsessive personality. Sergei learned that the only way to life was survival, and this caused Sergei to travel broadly throughout various parts of the world as he managed to sneak aboard on stowaway ships and trains. Living within various cities located in throughout Asia and Europe, Sergei and Dimitri would eventually depart and go their separate ways.

As a young adult, Sergei would finally relocate himself in Africa where he found a natural talent for hunting. Changing his name to Kraven, Sergei pursued his talents as he increased his hunting and survival skills throughout the safari. As years passed, Kraven became notorious and extremely wealthy as big game hunter. Kraven would eventually stumble upon the lair of a local witch doctor in the Belgian Congo and take notice of an herbal potion that was believed to give increased strength, reflexes, and stamina. Blinded by the need for excitement with his hunting career, Kraven stole the potion and consumed it, causing to gain the potions benefits. With his new found abilities, Kraven’s reputation increased worldwide as he became a game hunter who tested and challenged himself with each dangerous and rare hunt. Eventually Kraven partnered with Smerdyakov in a business that exported extremely rare and possibly illegal animal skins and ivory. Not only did Kraven gain a reputation with his hunting career, but also became a very well known ladies man who fathered several children with several women throughout various countries. Even though Kraven hardly participated any acts of being a father to any of his children, he only favored one son known as Vladimir who was mostly watched by Kraven's assistant. It was also known that within this time period, Kraven was secretly recruited by Nick Fury to join his selected team to infiltrate the Nazi forces and assassinate the Red Skull. After his stint with Nick Fury, Kraven returned to Africa to continue pursuing and challenging his career as a game hunter.

Hunting the Menace of New York City

Dimitri, who was currently residing in America and a criminal spy known as the Chameleon would later contact Kraven. Enticing the hunter into assisting him gain revenge on Spider-Man for his recent capture, Kraven accepted his half-brother’s offer out of curiosity and publicly made his travel towards America. Upon his arrival to New York, Kraven was introduced with fanfare and demonstrated his abilities to the public after single handily capturing dangerous zoo animals that managed to escape from their cages. Secretly meeting with Dimitri and also sharing his potion with his half-brother, Kraven would take a special interest with the proclaimed menace known as Spider-Man. After Dimitri hired henchmen to stage a robbery to attract Spider-Man, Kraven would study this menace that wore and represented the symbol of his greatest fears. Instantly knowing the good nature in the hero and that he was of young age, Kraven would also gain more interest with Spider-Man after witnessing him in action. Seeing him as an equal, Kraven felt that Spider-Man was more than a coincidence, but the ultimate challenge that Kraven must accept to restore honor in his family’s name. Kraven engages against Spider-Man to test his skills and abilities only to find the hero fleeing from Kraven. Spider-Man would later encounter Kraven once more when this time the hunter was assisted by Dimitri to trick Spider-Man while he was disguised as Kraven. Even though Spider-Man quickly caught on to the act, the web slinger still managed to take down both Chameleon and Kraven and left them for the authorities. Even though Kraven never committed a crime by fighting against Spider-Man, his partnership with a wanted criminal spy forced both Kraven and Chameleon to face charges as criminal spies and be deported back to Europe

The Sinister Six

Managing to escape the ship that was deporting them, both Chameleon and Kraven would wash up on the shores of Long Island. Coming across a Stark industries plant, Kraven entered the facilities only to find himself fighting and quickly being defeated by Iron Man. However his half-brother Chameleon who was seeking to be better than Kraven did manage to fair better as he was responsible for manipulating Iron Man and Captain America into fighting each other. Managing to escape authorities, Kraven was now a common criminal who was blinded by the goals of hunting down Spider-Man before leaving America. After being offered by Dr. Octopus to join his group of villains who were each obsessed with gaining vengeance against Spider-Man, Kraven took the offer of joining Dr. Octopuses Sinister Six, despite his attitude by joining forces with other criminals who stood in his way of hunting down Spider-Man. As Dr. Octopus staged each member in a gauntlet style to fight against Spider-Man, Kraven was confident that he would be able to take down him while being assisted by two Leopards. As Kraven tried his skills against the hero, he still found himself unable to take down Spider-Man as the hero left him defeated and left for the authorities while he took on the next Sinister Six member.

More Ways to Hunt a Spider-Man

Kraven would later be hired the Green Goblin (who was secretly Norman Osborn at the time) to kill Spider-Man, however Kraven was overconfident on killing Spider-Man that he demanded half of the payment which was obviously denied. Angered as to how his demands was shrugged off, Kraven sworn that after killing Spider-Man he would kill Green Goblin as well. Managing to track the Goblin to one of his lairs, Kraven deduced the fact that both Norman Osborn and Green Goblin were the same man. As a way to attack Spider-Man, Kraven disguised himself as the hero and attacked J.Jonah Jameson at the Daily Bugle to have New York City against his prey. With Jameson posting a hefty reward for Spider-Man that caused local gangs to hunt after the hero, Kraven found the better opportunity to defeat Spider-Man. Spider-Man managed to fend off against both Kraven and a local gang; the on looking Green Goblin would distract Kraven. With Kraven unable to defeat Spider-Man and facing another defeat, Kraven would respectfully admit framing Spider-Man and attacking Jameson. Forced into deportation once again, Kraven was angered as to how he almost managed to defeat Spider-Man if not for the meddling Green Goblin. Feeling that he rightfully deserved the offered payment from the Goblin, Kraven returned to New York once again to track down Osborn and collect payment. Unable to find Norman Osborn, Kraven decided to kidnap his son Harry at a local party and hold him as a hostage as a way to drag out Norman Osborn. Managing to attract Spider-Man as both men fought a construction site, Norman Osborn would come onto the scene only to be snatched by Kraven. Demanding his payment from Osborn, Osborn would have no memory of being the Green Goblin or making an offering. Seeing that Osborn wasn’t lying, Kraven released Osborn and escaped capture from both Spider-Man and the authorities. With his reputation and pride challenged by being fooled by Green Goblin and fleeing from Spider-Man, Kraven would be angered when the local papers published an article that mentioned the Vulture (Blackie Drago) not only defeated Spiderman but was also labeled as the most feared man throughout New York. Feeling that this Vulture would take down his enemy that was rightfully his to kill, Kraven attacked the new villain and ironically both villains would form into an alliance. With both Kraven and Vulture planning on taking each other out after defeating Spider-Man, Kraven only agreed to form an alliance with Vulture as a way to gain a better chance of claiming victory over Spider-Man. As both villains fought the Spider-Man at a designated location, the hero managed to bring down both villains and leave them for the arriving authorities.

King of the Savage Land

Deciding to sharpen his skills and take a career as a fully hired mercenary. After being hired by Mister Sinister alongside with Blob to infiltrate the X-men compound to obtain their mutant DNA, Kraven managed to break in and managed to blackmail Beast into assisting him. However Beast overcame Kraven’s blackmailing scheme and attacked the hero in a berserk fury. Even though Kraven proved successful, he was unaware that Mister Sinister secretly obtained Kraven's own DNA for his own purposes. Fearing public exposure, Sinister erased the incident from the mind of Kraven and released him with no recollection. After taking notice of the rare Saber-tooth Tiger known as Zabu, Kraven traveled to the Savage Land and successfully captured Zabu. Managing to return to New York with Ka-Zar in pursuit, both men would desperately fight each other until Ka-Zar proven victorious over Kraven and saved Zabu from Kraven’s clutches. Angered as to how Ka-Zar ruined his capture over Zabu and facing a humiliating defeat, Kraven returned to the Savage Land to gain revenge on Ka-Zar only to find himself coming across a found extraterrestrial alien. Adopting the strange alien, Kraven named it Gog as it quickly grew into gigantic proportions. Seeing Gog as a chance to help him gain revenge against Ka-Zar and rule the Savage Land, Kraven would use Gog to kidnap Gwen Stacy to be his queen after Jameson, Peter Parker, and herself were investigating investigating attacks on a research team. This quickly caught the attention of both Spider-Man and Ka-Zar as the web-slinger managed to trick  Gog into sinking in quicksand pit and Ka-Zar saving Gwen Stacy from Kraven as the hunter fell from a cliff and was presumed dead.

Hunter and Mercenary

Managing to recuperate from his recent defeat, Kraven went through a two-week recovery period while searching for the remains of Gog. Finally finding the deceased alien, Kraven swore vengeance against Spider-Man and traveled to America to hunt down Spider-Man once again. Managing to track the hero, Kraven was still healing from an injured arm and found that by attacking Spider-Man would be pointless, but instead found something else interesting when he noticed the costume Gibbon (Martin Blank) desperately trying to impress Spider-Man into being his partner. Noticing how Spider-Man denied his requests, Kraven took interest on how Gibbon was furious with Spider-Man turning him down and decided to manipulate Gibbon into helping him gain revenge against Spider-Man for ridiculing him. After introducing himself to Gibbon and offering to help Gibbon’s costume career, Kraven gave Gibbon one of his potions that increased Gibbon’s powers but also caused Gibbon to go mad. Even though Kraven was forced to subdue the insane Gibbon, he sent the temporary calmed Gibbon to go after Spider-Man and use the rage he had against the hero as a way to defeat him. Even though Gibbon’s powers were increased, Spider-Man still managed to defeat Gibbon as Kraven’s attempt for revenge was foiled again.

Later Kraven took his skills back to being a mercenary when he was hired by Kerwin J. Broderick to kill Daredevil. Managing to kidnap Daredevil’s partner Black Widow as a way to lead the hero into a trap, Kraven managed to almost succeed on killing Daredevil when the hunter threw him off a cliff. Believing that the hero died from the fall, Kraven didn’t know that Daredevil was transported away by Moondragon. Even though Kraven was arrested, he managed to escape confinement as he was hired byHarrison Turk to capture Man-Wolf and to kill J.Jonah, Jameson and his fiancée, Kristine Saunders. Deciding to pit both Jonah and his son against each other before taking out the survivor, Kraven gave Jonah a rifle to use against his own son. However Kraven would be arrested once again before he could properly fulfill his contract. When Kraven managed to free himself, he decided to find a way to augment his powers by kidnapping Dr. Herbert Malraux. Even though Kraven did manage to kidnap Malraux, he also captured the attention of Tigra who pursued Kraven to an abandoned circus arena. Even though Kraven posed as a greater threat against Tigra, she managed to ultimately defeat Kraven as he suffered from fatal injuries.

Failing Honor and Reputation

After healing from his wounds, Kraven would face another defeat from Tigra when she was investigating a murder caused by Kraven. Captured and left for the authorities, Kraven managed to avoid the murder charge because of Tigra being unable to testify in court by not making her appearance. Still apprehended, Kraven easily escaped custody to pursue his mercenary career but was forced to hire his services at a lower price because of his bad reputation. Hired alongside with Tarantula by Dr. Edward Lansky, both men were ordered to kidnap and deliver Richard Gorman. With Spiderman catching onto both villains, Tarantula managed to deliver Gorman while Kraven desperately fought Spiderman on the roof of a movie marquee. Spiderman would defeat Kraven when he accidentally electrocuted himself and was left for the arriving authorities. Before being sent back to prison, Kraven made his escape and returned to one of his original hideouts. When Tigra learned of Kraven's escape, the confident hero made her attempt on bringing Kraven to justice once again only to find herself being trapped and enslaved by Kraven. With Tigra at his command, Kraven knew how dangerous and useful Tigra can be for another attempt on gaining revenge against Spiderman. Managing to kidnap Spiderman and bring him to his lair to force Tigra into killing the hero, Kraven’s plan backfired when Tigra escaped from Kraven's clutches as both heroes successfully overpowered and defeated Kraven. Defeated and humiliated by another loss, Kraven left America to the Carribean islands to rethink his plans and how to restore honor in his name. Knowing that Spiderman was his primary challenge and that his tactic of using Tigra to kill his prey was an unhonorable attempt, this was the developing step of Kraven's unstable ego that slowly became an obsession.

For Calypso's Love

Taking a different path on restoring his name, Kraven respectfully returned to his hunting lifestyle and transporting zoo animals to various countries. He also would encounter and became romantically involved with Calypso Ezili who was a local voodoo priestess. Taking an interest within Kraven because of his former criminal nature and obsessive need to hunt, she would quickly be disappointed by the fact that Kraven strictly followed his own morals of gaining honor. As Kraven denied her goading as she pressured and taunted Kraven into returning to his pointless vendetta against Spiderman, Calypso would frame Spiderman of releasing Kraven’s animal shipments in New York City. Managing to subdue all animals with the help of some civilians, Kraven would suspect foul play when Calypso quickly blamed Spiderman for the incident. However her continuous gloating managed to pressure Kraven into fighting Spiderman as he tricked the web slinger into meeting him at the Museum of Natural History. With Spiderman showing up to investigate a break in, Kraven showed himself to Spiderman before confronting the hero of zoo animal incident. As both Spiderman and Kraven began fighting, Calypso was watching elsewhere until the arriving authorities managed to capture her. With Kraven nearly succeeding on killing Spiderman and becoming overconfident, Spiderman managed to save himself from near death and continue his struggling fight with Kraven. Overcoming Kraven and chasing him as he began to flee, Spiderman caught up to the hunter as he gave him a devastating punch that Kraven out the door of the museum and next the feet of the authorities. With both Kraven and Calypso arrested, both of them managed to escape custody as the obsessed and angered Kraven plans his next step alongside with Calypso.

Remembering how close he came to fully accomplishing his primary goal with his recent encounter with Spiderman, Kraven desperately trained himself for his next hunt against Spiderman. With Calypso still at his side, Kraven cared less for her continuous gloating and attempts on manipulating her lover for her own twisted desires. Prepared and ready for his final challenge against Spiderman, Kraven managed to track the hero down and attack him with a variety of hunting weapons. Even though Kraven was confident that Spiderman would be defeated, the on-looking Calypso realized that Kraven was outmatched and secretly decided to use a blowgun and shoot Spiderman with a rare hallucination dart. As Spiderman started to feel the effects of the dart and fend off against Kraven’s continuous attacks, Kraven would suspect something wrong when he began realizing that Spiderman was acting differently. Seeing the hero frantically fall victim to the hallucination, Kraven would be disgusted by Calypso’s tactics and decided to save Spiderman from being hit by an oncoming bus. Believing that victory was cheated from him again, Kraven left Calypso to her own fate as he honorably surrendered himself to the authorities.

First Blood

After being freed from prison by an AIM agent who was seeking his services to capture Ka-Zar alive, Kraven cared less about what the agent wanted and decided to gain vengeance on Ka-Zar for his recent defeat. Nearly successful on killing Ka-Zar, Kraven would ironically be saved by his enemy when both men nearly fell to their death. Out of respect for Ka-Zar saving his life, Kraven gave up his vendetta against Ka-Zar and helped him recover from his recent injury by AIM.

After his incident with Ka-Zar, Kraven’s mind started becoming unstable because of how he felt limited and that achieving honor was the cause for his ruined reputation. Giving up his moral code, Kraven continued his career as costumed villain who began robbing stores and various buildings. Kraven would later run into another enemy, when the furious Tigra encountered Kraven after investigating a robbery at a local museum. Not wishing to fight Tigra, Kraven made the attempt to avoid the hero only to find himself forced into fighter to the death after she drew first blood. As the fight took itself to Griffith Park where several onlookers were witnessing the fight, Kraven was unaware the among the crowd was the villain murderer known as Scourge of the Underworld who was planning on killing Kraven. As Kraven fought against Tigra dishonorably, he nearly could have killed her if it wasn’t for the arrival of the West Coast Avengers. Apprehended once more, Kraven would be released by an agent of Mephisto known as Mr. Bitterhorn to recruit Kraven to join a massive army against the arriving being known as the Beyonder. Instead Kraven was one of the many villains who were defeated by an empowered Thing and quickly finding himself returning to jail.

Kraven's Last Hunt

One of the darkest chapters in Kraven’s history was when he finally realized what has become of him. After being released from prison, Kraven began suffering from night terrors and feared that his sanity was lost because of how he lost honor to his name for all the prior defeats he suffered from. Believing that Spider-Man was the source of all his problems and fears, Kraven needed to find a way to regain honor by overcoming his fears and seeing himself better than Spider-Man. Kraven obviously altered his self-proclaimed ways to achieve honor and decided that if he couldn’t beat Spider-Man, he could be better than Spider-Man at what he does. With a hunting rifle loaded with tranquilizers, Kraven quickly tracked down Spider-Man and easily overpowered him because of his change of methods. Managing to have Spider-Man deeply unconscious, Kraven buried Spider-Man alive as he moved onto the next step of his plan. Wearing the Spider-Man costume, Kraven patrolled the streets like Spider-Man usually did and expressed his violent form of justice as a desperate attempt to be the better hero. Kraven would encounter and save Mary Jane from two muggers as she quickly realized that it wasn’t her husband after witnessing Kraven viciously beat the muggers to a pulp. Upon learning of the cannibalistic murders of a monster known as Vermin, Kraven knew of Vermin’s history with Spider-Man and how the monster nearly killed Spider-Man and also finally found the chance to prove himself better. Hunting the creature down as Spider-Man, both Kraven and Vermin viciously fought each other until Kraven proved more dominate over the monster.

Taking him back to one of his lairs to be tortured and caged like an animal, Kraven would wait for the final part of his plan, which was the resurrection of Spider-Man. Buried for two weeks straight, Spider-Man revived and escaped from his grave, first thing that Spider-Man did was hunt down Kraven. With Kraven expecting Spider-Man, the hunter would take Spider-Man’s beatings as he revealed himself successful against Spider-Man. With Spider-Man confused, Kraven had to be sure that he was better as he claimed to be and led the angered Spider-Man into trap that forced both Spider-Man and the scared Vermin into fighting each other. With Kraven watching the fight, Kraven stopped the fight when Vermin was seconds away from killing Spider-Man. Letting the monster escape, Kraven helped the defeated Spider-Man to his feet to pursue the monster. But before Spider-Man left, Kraven sworn that he would never hunt again as he finally found honor within himself because of Spider-Man. Kraven later committed suicide that night after signing a confession with pictures that Spider-Man was innocent of Kraven’s vigilantism during his time as Spider-Man. With Spider-Man left traumatized from the event, Kraven was laid to rest next to the same grave that Spider-Man was buried in. Even though Kraven's tombstone was marked that he died honorably, it was a fact that it was only a self-proclaimed delusion that forced the desperate Kraven to find honor within his name.

Grim Hunt

After Sasha learned how to revive her deceased husband through means of sacrificing the one thing that Kraven feared, which was spiders. Forming an elaborate plan to capture and kill/sacrifice all those who wore the spider symbol, Sasha ensured that Spider-Man himself would be the last victim of her scheme. Managing to kidnap Madame Web and use her as an advantage, Sasha formed the Kravenoff family and managed to capture Arana, Arachne, and Mattie Franklin. With the help of Diablo, Electro, and Mysterio, Sasha first sacrificed Mattie that revived Vladimir who has reformed himself into a monstrous beast. With the belief that they later captured Spider-Man in a trap, Sasha would finally revive her husband from the grave after sacrificing the hero. Revived and angered that he was taken away from eternal happiness that was given to him years ago with the help of Spider-Man. Kraven was disgusted with what became of his family besides his dedicated daughter Ana. What angered Kraven the most was the fact that he can no longer die because of the sacrifice and that only Spider-Man himself can kill Kraven.

Knowing that the Spider-Man Sasha sacrificed was the clone known as Kaine, Kraven would take the advantage of the situation and force the real Spider-Man into a fight that would end with Kraven’s death. As Spider-Man gained extra strength and abilities because of his rage, the enraged hero managed to take out each individual of the Kravinoff family and finally face Kraven in a fight to the death. As both Kraven and Spider-Man faced each other in a brutal fight, as Kraven predicted, Spider-Man gained the upper-hand and was one kill-blow away from ending Kraven’s life. Yet, Spider-Man would spare Kraven’s life after witnessing the future outcome of Kraven’s death and deny Kraven from his demanding request. Managing to escape the scene with his family, Kraven and his family moved to the Savage Land as a way to rebuild a better and much more stronger Kravinoff family. With Sasha angered with Kraven’s decision, Kraven finally killed Sasha by snapping her neck for the recent events. As an expression of love for his favored son Vladimir, Kraven gave his son the one thing that he wanted, which was death. With two members of the Kravinoff family dead by Kraven’s own hands, Alyosha left Kraven in a fit of disgust. Noticing that his daughter Ana was the only dedicated member and wasn’t afraid of her father, Kraven offered her chance to help rebuild a better family after giving the command to go hunt and kill her brother Alyosha.

While he is in the Savage Land, Venom lands in the area on an unrelated mission from the federal government. Mistaking him to be Spider-Man, Kraven attacks him and gains the upper hand before Venom escapes.

Hulk discovers that Bruce Banner had hired Kraven to find the lost city of Sasquatches. Although Hulk was uninterested with helping the Sasquatches deal with Kraven, he changes his mind and beats up Kraven the Hunter.

Personality

Kraven is a very skilled and experienced hunter. With his developed and taught abilities, Kraven’s hunting skills were world- renowned. He was possibly the worlds greatest hunter. Kraven studied his prey to find any possible weakness before making an attack; because of this, Kraven could individually hunt the most dangerous and challenging animals with success. Even though Kraven had gained his experience within the environment of the African safari, he could easily analyze and study any type of environment and use it as an advantage over his prey. Even within urban areas such as New York City and San Francisco, to nearly undiscovered lands like the Savage Land.

Kraven had also developed a self-taught fighting style that strictly focused on capturing and gaining an advantage over an opponent. Most likely developed from his experience with taming animals, Kraven was very well known for his nerve punch attack that could even paralyze super powered opponents. Aside from his experience in hand-to-hand combat, Kraven was very proficient with all forms of hunting and animal taming equipment. Even though Kraven was seen using tribal-like weaponry and equipment such as spears, shields, and axes, he had been seen using conventional forms of hunting equipment such as rifles and bows despite the fact that he prefers more antiquated weaponry.


Kraven was also a very experienced animal tamer and a manipulator for any type of super powered individual who displays any animalistic features or traits. Mostly through methods of physical restraint, usage of mind-altering herbs, and manipulation, Kraven was experienced in having any form of animal bend to his will through means of dominance, even if they are extra terrestrial.

Powers

Aside from his knowledge and experience with hunting and animal taming, Kraven was also very experienced with foreign and exotic jungle herbs and creating and designing a variety of potions with them.

Kraven could lift approximately 2 tons and run in short sprints approximately at 60 mph, and he can do a standing broad jump up to 20 feet long, as well jump or land from great heights.
