As one of Marvel’s most iconic anti-heroes and one of Spider-Man’s most fearsome enemies, Kraven, aka Sergei Kravinoff, is a formidable hunter who is obsessed with capturing increasingly elusive prey. Over the course of his career, he has clashed with Venom, Black Panther and many others.
The character was first introduced in 1964 in The Amazing Spider-Man. He was officially born as an antagonist in the Spider-Man comics, but at the moment, the possibility of seeing him engaging in his hunt for Peter Parker is quite unlikely.
