Synopsis for "Hunted: Prelude"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 #16.

Kraven kills the guide of a poach hunter named Bob, however to his surprise, he declares that he does not want to kill him, but wants to make him a hunter. A flashback reveals Kraven's plan: after moving to the Wild Land, he began killing humanoid animals created by the High Evolutionary. The latter eventually gave up and said he was willing to do whatever Kraven wanted to stop him from killing his creatures.Kraven ordered the geneticist to clone it 87 times, and to make the clones become adults in a short time. Windham obeyed, but Kraven's daughter Ana learned of her father's plans and left him in disgust. When his "children" became adults, Kraven sent them around the world to hunt, and then ordered them after some time to return. However, only one returned after killing all the other clones, much to Kraven's satisfaction. The hunter then explained to his son, how his climate was dying due to climate change and how poachers were unworthy of hunting because of their methods. Given that killing or frightening them all would be impossible Kraven decided to push them to hunt all the super criminals whose identity is inspired in some way by the animals: in fact, according to the hunter, they committed the sacrilege of having given themselves the name of the beasts without honoring their soul. And now Kraven will teach them what it means to be hunted. Billy sneaks out to go to a party and his father Curt calls Peter Parker to send Spider-Man to find him. Peter feels unwell, but still goes out in search of Billy. The appearance of the latter, triggers panic at the party and the boy runs away to the street, where he is kidnapped by Black Ant and Taskmaster. While looking for the little Connors, Spider-Man is found by a Spider-Tracer-Tracker who had given to the Black Cat, on which the latter recorded a message: Felicia says she ended up in a trap and that the Lizard's son is with her.

The Black Cat learned that her ex-partner Hammerhead is looking for her, bursts into her hiding place and slaughter his subordinates. This helps her release the tension: in fact since Spider-Man has revealed her identity again, canceling the effects of the spell that had made her forget it, Felicia has continued flashbacks of her relationship with Peter, and it does infuriating. Hammerhead tells her that after she stopped being a crime boss, he found another partner, the Owl but that Taskmaster and Black Ant kidnapped him, and that he needs his contacts for expansion . The criminal asks Felicia to track down the Owl by offering her the position of the caveu in exchange, so that she can plunder it at will, and after some hesitation Felicia accepts.Felicia locates the two ex-agents of the S.H.I.E.L.D. on a ship, and while looking for the owl he runs into Billy Connors. The cat reassures him with a little lie, and goes away determined to free the Owl and warn the spider and other superheroes. But when she finds out that the two mercenaries have decided to take the boy away, she goes back to free him, to be attacked by Taskmaster and Black Ant. The cat ended up in a trap that Hammerhead joined to take revenge on the way she ditched him when she came back good. As she struggles, Felicia comes back to her mind when she believed that Peter wanted to ask her to marry him, when instead he just wanted to give her a modified Spider-Tracer to locate him, so that the cat could contact him. Felicia manages to distance the two enemies as long as necessary to use the Spider-Tracer to send an S.O.S. to Spider-Man.

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.

Lizard reveals to Taskmaster that the effects of the toxin he has given him will fade on their own over time. The Black Cat and Billy are attacked by one of the hunters.

Meanwhile, Black Ant reveals to Spider-Man that in reality the hunter-robots have a weak point, and that due to the neural connection, if the robot is destroyed whoever controls it will die. Kraven will make sure that those he deems dishonorable annihilate each other. Enraged, the spider gives Kraven's position from Black Ant, but when he goes he is attacked by the Vermin.

Spidey wakes up in a cage wearing a new costume (the other had been damaged in the clone fight) next to Curt Connors and in front of a screen showing what Billy and the Black Cat are doing. Billy reveals to the cat that he has vague memories of Lizard who kills him, which he also understood. Felicia is shocked to learn it but at that moment the two are attacked by Kraven's clone. Spider-Man is determined to run to their rescue, but he is chained and the only way is to tear Curt's inhibitor chip so that he can turn into Lizard to fight. Taking out the chip would break Curt's backbone, but thanks to his regenerative powers, he could survive. Spider-Man is eventually forced to snatch the chip from Curt, who turns into the Lizard and heals.

Synopsis for "Hunted: Part 6"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 5 #22.

While his clone attacks the Black Cat and Billy Connors, Kraven lets Spider-Man out of the cage. As soon as he leaves the spider he finds himself in front of numerous corpses which he believes is the work of Lizard, and for which he feels responsible. At that moment Kraven appears, declaring that Spidey commits a sacrilege by not embracing the predatory nature of the spider and not killing his enemies ... despite it seems that he is doing it since he has agreed to risk killing Curt, and has left Lizard in freedom as pointed out by the hunter. To force him to kill him, Kraven assures him from Arcade, that in the event of his death, the force field will be deactivated, like the robots that the prisoners will be freed, and the Black Cat and Billy Connors rescued. Kraven's words, and another premonition in which he sees MJ dead, push the spider almost to the limit, and brutally assault Kraven but he doesn't kill them because he understands that it was the hunter who slaughtered the guards and not Lizard.To show him that his view of the world is wrong, Spidey shows Kraven how Felicia is risking her life for a child she has no relationship with and how Lizard intervenes to help them. Incredibly, Kraven understands and stops the hunt by deactivating the robots, and promising the spider that he will no longer hunt, urging him to run to the rescue of those in need. Subsequently Kraven wears the Spider-Man's Suit and posing as him faces his clone that kills him finally obtaining eternal peace.
