Powers/Abilities: Kraven the Hunter is a
highly trained fighter, skilled in several types of hand-to-hand
combat, as well as weapons such as blow darts (although he prefers
direct combat with adult foes). Kraven is an expert tracker, and has
enhanced strength and durability (probably from unique
herb compounds like his Earth-616 counterpart). He has a pack of four
vicious but loyal canines (bloodhound, wolf, hyena and a dingo-type)
that he controls with a dog whistle.
Weight: 235 lbs.
(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).
