- “You are gifted with wonderful powers, but still you are unable to track down the prey who matters most to you. Allow me to help you. I will make you what you were meant to be: The ultimate hunter!"”
- ―Kraven the Hunter[src]
Sergei Kravinov, also known as Kraven the Hunter, is a character featured in the video game, The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Descended from Russian nobility, Sergei Kravinoff is intent on proving himself the world's apex predator by hunting and defeating the deadliest prey - big cats, bears, dinosaurs, cross-species monsters...and men.
His exploits have made him world famous. Though he subscribes to the law of survival of the fittest, Kraven has a firm code of honor - his prey always gets the chance for a face-to-face fight, and a worthy opponent is given respect.
Like a tiger, Kraven is fascinating and charismatic - not despite, but because of how dangerous he is.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The only cross-species shown to be killed by him are Scorpion, Iguana and Nattie. How The Rhino and Vermin managed to not get killed is unknown.
- Kraven was slated to appear in the now cancelled movie The Sinister Six, as a member of the titular team. However, later reports stated that Kraven would also receive a film of his own that would serve as an interquel set between The Amazing Spider-Man and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Plot details indicate that Sergei Kravinov would have been among the many shady associates of Norman Osborn (alongside Rajit Ratha, Donald Menken, and Gustav Fiers), and would have been enlisted by Osborn to pursue Spider-Man as he recognized his powers as a result of Richard Parker's cross-species project, believing that Spider-Man's blood could hold the cure to retroviral hyperplasia. Kraven would come into conflict against Spider-Man and would have successfully apprehended and captured him, taking blood and tissue samples for Osborn. Much like his son Harry would do a year later, Osborn would have the blood synthezized into a serum to cure himself, but the serum would end up transforming him into the actual first Green Goblin (dubbed King Goblin from certain sources) and his ensuing fight with Spider-Man would show him undergoing the same degenerative breakdown Harry did and lead to his defeat, and Kraven would retrieve him, leading to his sickly state in the second film. The working title for this film would have been The Amazing Spider-Man Presents: Kraven the Hunter.
