A Brief Look At The Biography of Kraven the Hunter

Sergei Kravinoff was born and raised in Volgograd and St. Petersburg. His alcoholic father would beat him and Sergei would in turn take out his frustrations on Dmitri, his half-brother. The Bolshevik Revolution forces the Kravinoff family to emigrate. Sergei loses both his parents and is forced to learn to survive on his own. He travels as a stowaway aboard ships and trains from country to country. He discovers his passion for hunting in Africa. He also changes his name from Sergei to Kraven.

He becomes a wealthy game hunter because of his remarkable hunting skills. He steals a witch doctor’s potion during his time in Africa which enhances his physical prowess and abilities to hunt. The potion helps to decelerate the ageing process, thus Kraven looks like a thirty year old man, even though he is much older. He is stronger, faster, agile and can jump very far. You can find rifles, darts, axes, spears, whips, gas bombs and even blowguns in his weapon storage. However, he comes with many tricks up his sleeve such as poison-tipped teeth in his belt and electronics in his lion’s head vest.

He forms a partnership with Dmitri to help with trading animal skins and ivory that he acquires during his hunting sprees. However, big game isn’t the only targets on Kraven’s list. He meets his match, the web-slinging hero, Spider-Man but Spidey evades him most of the time. Kraven joins up with Dmitri and even the Sinister Six at a later stage to take on Spiderman. He is no stranger to the Avengers. He joins Dum Dum Dugan’s original Avengers’ Initiative alongside Nick Fury, Namora, Sabretooth, Ulysses Bloodstone, Dominic Fortune, and Silver Sable.

Kraven shared the herbs with Dmitri to give them both an edge in combat, especially when squaring off against Spider-Man. He saw the friendly neighborhood hero as a monstrosity and fueled by both fear and rage never quit taking on the wallcrawler, but Spider-Man secured a win over both Kraven and Dmitri, now known as the infamous Chameleon. This resulted in them being deported back to Europe, but Kraven and Dimitri found their way back to America. Doc Ock recruits Kraven and other members into the Sinister Six, but even this team is no match for Spider-Man and this results in their capture and imprisonment.

Kraven is eager to do jobs for other famous villains such as the Green Goblin and Mister Sinister. His job with Mister Sinister requires him to obtain DNA from other mutants. This physical altercation results in another face-off with Spider-Man. A face-off against the Vulture resulted in both Kraven and Vulture being captured by Spider-Man. Kraven even landed in hot water with law enforcement and the Fantastic Four when he got caught supplying hallucinogens to other important role-players in New York.

The above are mere highlights of Kraven’s stories and meant to serve as an appetizer.

Final thoughts

I’m honestly excited for this production and can’t wait to see how it links to the wider Sony Spider-Man’s Universe. Looking forward to all the possible action and fight scenes. And will we get to see Spider-Man? Let’s wait for hunting season to begin at a cinema near you.

Ezekiel Sims: Character Profile

Published

on

Ezekiel Sims (Marvel)

Founder of the Spider Society. A successful, but sinister business man. A Spider-Mentor. Here follows a brief background of Ezekiel Sims.

Hidden Motives

Ezekiel used his financial capital and influence to save a temple in Peru from being demolished all because of the chance to be a subject of the ritual that would grant him spider-like abilities. However, as a power-hungry man, he never feels satisfied for the quest for power. He obtains superhuman strength, speed, reflexes and superb resilience. He can stick to wall and also possess spider-senses. He however, does not rely on web-shooters or any other artificial gadgets and tools. He studies all the various ceremonies of the Spider-Clan.

Friends and Foes

Ezekiel finds himself helping out the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man many times but usually with his own agenda in mind. He even trains a new protégé and is forced to protect her from a vampire. Lets see who can guess who the vampire is, and no, I’m not referring to Morbius. Ezekiel finds himself the target of some sinister characters beyond the astral plane and he sacrifices himself to save the life of Peter Parker.

Sinister beginnings but with a noble ending, that is Ezekiel Sims. However, Tahar Rahim plays the primary antagonist in the Madame Web movie that has released last week. What is his motives or objectives this time?
