Powers/Abilities: Transformed by the Godstone, the Man-Wolf took on a lupine appearance similar to the first Man-Wolf (John Jameson), and possessed enhanced strength and speed.
(Spider-Man Family#5/2 (fb) - BTS) - Using a fragment of the Godstone that previously transformed John Jameson into the Man-Wolf, Kraven transformed an unnamed man he deemed "insignificant" into a new Man-Wolf to confront him during a hunt sponsored by wealthy socialites Dallas and Penny Gold. Kraven released his Man-Wolf with the intent of using hidden lures to draw him to the socialites during their "hunt." However, Spider-Man spotted Kraven's Man-Wolf while the beast was en route to Kraven and the Golds and, thinking it was John Jameson, tried to stop him.
(Spider-Man Family#5/2) - Spider-Man and Kraven's Man-Wolf arrived at the rooftop where Kraven, Penny and Dallas were waiting. Recognizing Penny, Spider-Man was distracted long enough for the Man-Wolf to push him into a brick wall. Kraven leapt forward, grabbing the Man-Wolf from behind. Penny, trying to help, fired her weapon, just narrowly missing Kraven who became distracted long enough for the Man-Wolf to break free. Recovering, Spider-Man stopped the Man-Wolf long enough for Kraven to grab the Godstone fragment from around his neck. Surprised Kraven knew about the Godstone, Kraven explained that he had purchased the fragment and used it on an unnamed man for an "urban safari" with the Golds. Paid off so he wouldn't file charges against the Golds or Kraven, the man was left webbed up on the rooftop with the others.
Comments: Created by Dana Moreshead (writer), Eduardo Garcia (pencils) and Roger Bonet (inks).
Kraven refers to himself as Sergei Kravinoff, and given Spider-Man's reference to the Puma in the course of the story, that leaves the small window between the Puma's introduction and Kraven's death as this story's placement. That appears to have been deliberate since the ending of the story implies the madness that propelled Kraven's last hunt, but that may have been coincidental.
The Godstone is referred to as the Moonstone in Spider-Man Family#5/2, but corrected in this profile.
Of the two socialites who hired Kraven, only one, Penny Gold, was given a full name. It's not confirmed in the story, but assumed in this profile that Dallas, the other socialite, is Penny's sister, and has the surname Gold.

Man-Wolf has no known connections to
Dallas and Penny Gold
Dallas (pictured left) and Penny Gold (pictured right) were two beautiful, young socialites who hired Kraven the Hunter for an "urban safari," a simulated hunt wherein Kraven's Man-Wolf would confront them and they would "hunt" him down. They were left webbed up by Spider-Man and told off by him for squandering their wealth and not helping others.
While the source of the their wealth was unrevealed, Spider-Man recognized Penny moments after encountering her.
