History:

(Fantastic Four and Power Pack#2 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Kraven fought Spider-Man to a standstill. Later, Kraven took up mercenary work, including for the Latverian dictator Doctor Doom to capture the boy Franklin Richards alive as part of Doom's efforts to destroy the child's parents' team, the Fantastic Four.

(Fantastic Four and Power Pack#2) - Using Doom's technology, Kraven tracked Franklin via nanomachines that had been injected into the boy by his cautious parents. Kraven found Franklin adventuring in the forest with Jack Power (the super-powered Mass Master) and set down his helicopter to pursue the boy on foot with his four-canine pack. Kraven knocked out Franklin using a blow dart, but was then confronted by Mass Master, who had reunited with his three siblings in Power Pack (Energizer, Lightspeed and Zero-G). Kraven unleashed his dogs on Power Pack and the children panicked, allowing Kraven to set an energy bauble that would automatically transport Franklin to Latveria. Energizer bravely blasted away several attacking dogs, then Kraven to keep him away from Franklin; this angered Kraven and he was ready to fight the children but a falling tree knocked him unconscious. However, the bauble still rolled near Franklin and activated; Kraven's mission was achieved.

Comments: Kraven originally created by Stan Lee & Steve Ditko. Adapted by Fred Van Lente & Gurihiru (Chifuyu Sasaki & Naoko Kawano).

It's assumed this Kraven has much of the same family history, name and physical characteristics as his Earth-616 counterpart (although his eye color is a first point of difference).
