Synopsis for "Hunted: Part 1"

Spider-Man feels bad, but still rushes to the aid of Felicia and Billy, telling himself that so far the kidnappings of Black Ant and Taskmaster had not affected him much but now that they have also taken the Black Cat, it has changed. Felicia does her best to comfort Billy when Kraven shows up in front of them and knowing that he wants to use her as a bait to lure the spider into a trap infuriates the cat.

Meanwhile, Spidey reaches the place from which Felicia sent his SOS, and is further weakened by mysterious chemicals. Peter has now guessed that Kraven is behind it all, but he doesn't understand why he hired two mercenaries when he was attacked by Kraven's Last son. The spider is fighting as best he can, even managing to score some good shots, but he is too weakened in addition, the mysterious green mist that it has breathed makes him have a premonition of the future in which Mary Jane is on the ground and losing blood. This distracts him and Kraven's clone manages to capture him.

Spider-Man wakes up in Central Park wearing the black costume, surrounded by super villains. The Scorpion attacks him, but their clash is interrupted by the assault of an army of hunter-robots.

Solicit Synopsis


We’ve been teasing a huge Kraven story since ASM #1 — and “HUNTED” is here to deliver it! Sergei Kravinoff and his minions have been kidnapping animal-themed characters for months, but they need one more to complete the collection — the Spider. But what does Kraven even want with all of them?! Find out in “HUNTED”!


  • This issue clarifies the status of Kraven's immortality saying that his temporary death in Scarlet Spider (Vol. 2) #23 at the hands of Kaine didn't break the curse.
