Amazing Spider-Man – Hunted | Comics

Kraven the Hunter returns to hunt and this time he is after animal-themed villains of Spider-Man for one big hunt.

After rekindling his relationship with Mary Jane Watson once again, life was going good for Peter Parker. He has crossed paths with mercenaries Black Ant and Taskmaster a few times as Amazing Spider-Man. Taking down those baddies, he didn't notice that these two are kidnapping some of those bad guys from his rogue's gallery.

In one of their recent encounter, he saw them chasing after Rhino and they managed to bag Aleksei Sytsevich when he was busy saving Aunt May. What he doesn't know is that these super-villains are being delivered to Kraven the Hunter, who has returned once again and teamed-up with evil genius Arcade for a secret scheme.

Going back to Savage Land, Kraven decided to start a new family and begins hunting humanoid Ani-Men, created by High Evolutionary. Seeing his beloved creatures getting slaughtered, he complied with Sergei and made 87 clones of him. These kids grew into adults pretty quickly and he sent them all throughout world to become hunters.

Meanwhile, he spent time building a fortune and reclaimed his kingdom in anticipation of their arrival but only one of them showed up. It appears that, the last son of Kraven has hunted down all his brethren to prove himself worthy, to which his father felt proud but his heir refused to settle down just yet without killing Spidey.

He then explains his son that nature of hunt has been changed and therefore, they should change their way as well. Due to climate change and increased number of poachers, their kingdom is dying now but instead of hunting these unworthy humans, he wants them to hunt super criminals that take inspiration from animals.

These villains have taken their names from the beasts without honoring their soul and Kraven wants them to feel how it is like to be hunted. He attends a party of wealthy elites of society hosted by Arcade and following introduction, offered them the greatest hunt of their lives by arranging for them to hunt down vicious baddies.

Previously in a family dinner with Mary Jane and Peter Parker, young Billy Connors had a heated argument with his father, Curt Connors and he sneaks up to get into a party with friends but gets kidnapped by Black Ant and Taskmaster. The Lizard contacts Pete to ask him send Spider-Man after him and help find his son if possible.

Billy was found by Black Cat at New York port who got baited by her old partner Hammerhead. Before getting knocked out by those two mercenaries, she sends a message through a modified Spider-Tracer that Spider-Man gave her years ago. He immediately ruses to their location while she tries her best to comfort Billy trapped in Plaza Hotel.

In his weakened state, Spidey managed to reach to coordinates sent by Felicia but sees no one there and then he suddenly gets ambushed by Last son of Kraven. A mysterious green mist is released in air that made him hallucinate about a grim future where he sees Mary Jane lying in blood and he gets beaten senseless in the mean time.

He wakes up later in Central Park wearing his infamous black costume and surrounded by all of those abducted villains. Believing him to be responsible for their capture, Scorpion attacks him but their fight is very short-lived when a group of Kraven-Bots came shooting at them all and everyone quickly start running for their lives at once.

Beetle tried to escape for her life but is hit by a large force field, which traps everyone within boundaries of Central Park as a prey. Inside of Plaza Hotel, Arcade invites wealthy elite group of hunters to join him and explains how they can take part in a great hunt by controlling an army of Kraven-like androids using advanced VR device.

Spider-Man was able to save Gibbon from an angry mob of Hunter-robots but was convinced to side with Vulture. In a shocking turn of events, Taskmaster ended up betraying his pal Black Ant and zaps him for a huge bounty. Back at home, MJ waits for Peter to return and worries for him as she is being secretly watched by a mysterious entity.

The Lizard has managed to get his way into this chaos looking for his son and encounters young son of Kraven in combat. Spidey made a shocking discovery coming across Black Ant of what has been originally planned here for those hunters. Then Sergei Kravinoff eventually showed up revealing his true intention about all this to Web-Head.

Amazing Spider-Man – Friends and Foes | Comics

Peter Parker's roommate Boomerang takes him to the Bar With No Name only to get in a brawl with a mob of super villains!

Earlier, Adrian Toomes chases one of his henchmen, Dougie as Vulture for stealing from him. Toomes picked him up from the car he was running in and got taken aback when the barbeque sauce on Dougie's t-shirt starts talking, only for Black Ant to come out punching before Taskmaster took him down with an electric net.

Peter Parker has been back on his rocker swinging as the Amazing Spider-Man he is and luckily got back with his supermodel girlfriend Mary Jane Watson once again. Many of his regular villains have sort of disappeared but he still cannot stop thinking about his roommate Fred Myers, who is also a known super criminal named Boomerang.

While they were making out in Peter's apartment, Fred was sneaking up on them like a creep and then introduces himself to MJ. Even though she thinks he is a decent guy and his other roommate Randy Robertson is all for giving Fred a second chance, Peter cannot bring himself to believe that a scumbag like that can change all of a sudden.

Previously, Boomerang has robbed the Museum of Natural History and took something that even got Mayor Wilson Fisk very interested. However, the former Kingpin never really admitted it to public and swept it under the rug for some unknown reason. Wearing his work costume, Fred takes Peter to the Bar with No Name to hang out for a night.

amazing spider-man friends and foes nick spencer marvel comics
Amazing Spider-Man – Friends and Foes | Comics

In actual, he took Pete there to win big at "Spider-Man Trivia Night" when he learned from Randy that he has been a photographer for Spidey and knows an awful lot about him. Although largely against the idea, Peter soon starts having a lot of fun answering trivia questions of his alter ego, surrounded by a room full of his worst enemies.

News of Fred being there reaches to Mayor Fisk and his assistant tries to reach out but it failed miserably because of Boomerang being a jerk. To teach him a lesson for his defiance, an extremely infuriated Fisk offers a hefty prize on his head that got every other patron of the bar interested in breaking the sacred rule of the Bar with No Name.

Things turned out pretty heated there and Peter is forced to team-up with one of his former foe to get out of the mess. Not only did they put up a great fight but Fred even took a blast from Scorcher to save his bunkmate. Fisk deices to go all out on them but the mysterious entity with a huge centipede then pays him a visit to stop him from doing that.

Odessa Drake took it upon her to restore the honor of Thieves Guild as its leader and announce their rebirth by sending each members of their group to steal anything and everything valuable from superhero community and Spider-Man is called in by Tony Stark when they swept clean entire Avengers Mansion and Hall of Armor in Stark Tower.

Their chaos has claimed Captain America's Shield, Cyclops' Visor, Eye of Agamotto from Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider's Hell Charger, Punisher's armory of weapons, Thor's hammer and even his Web-Shooters when he was in mid-air. Falling down with no hope of rescue, his old accomplice Black Cat suddenly snatches him out of nowhere.

Although she saved Spidey mid-freefall, the world-class cat burglar did not waste time to take a jab at him soon as they land for being a jerk after the lab accident earlier (Back to Basics). Now these two allies must set aside their differences once again to stop the uprising of Thieves Guild before it is too late for Odessa Drake to pull off a grand heist.

Amazing Spider-Man – Friends and Foes

Following the success of previous storyline "Back to Basics", writer Nick Spencer (Ant-Man – Second-Chance Man, Doctor Strange – Damnation) has returned to collaborate with artist Humberto Ramos (Champions – Change The World, Extraordinary X-Men – X-Haven) for his second arc in Amazing Spider-Man monthly ongoing comic-book series.

Titled "Friends and Foes", the story collects issues #06-10 from the series and explores Peter Parker's relation with one of the costumed enemies of his alter ego, Fred Myers AKA Boomerang in aftermath of "Secret Empire". Spencer has created new room for character development of this second-string mercenary, who is still playing coy.

Once Friend Once Foe

Spidey also patches up his ties with Black Cat and these two goes on a buddy-cop adventure together against a newly formed Thieves Guild. More aspects of his relationship with Mary Jane are given focus and props to Marvel Comics for that. Peter's ex-girlfriend Carlie Cooper returns to inform her of a support group called the Lookups to join.

A mysterious enemy still watches over him from the shadows and it is definitely not Kraven the Hunter, who is also planning his own twisted plot. With more of his old adversaries will be popping out of nowhere with their uniquely sinister agenda and J. Jonah Jameson will tag along in his next action-packed adventure "Lifetime Achievement".

Defenders – Kingpins of New York | Comics

The Defenders have gathered to fight for the people of New York! However, bad press follows them and Diamondback wants to be the next lord of crime!

When Diamondback came back from being dead after a long time, he faced the Defenders of New York. He was taking a drug to enhance his strength but got his butt kicked anyway. He was arrested and readied for transport, where he met the fierce vigilante Punisher.

Stryker was able to invoke Frank Castle into attacking him and he escaped. While on the run, he showed up at the penthouse of Black Cat and she calls off their alliance considering him being a fugitive only to get repeatedly shot at by him.

In desperation, he decides to take all of the remaining at once to get home and got extremely jacked up. Completely unknown about what he has been up to, a badly wounded Black Cat came back to take a dig at him but she barely made a scratch on him.

Stryker was about to deliver a finishing blow on her when Daredevil and Iron Fist intervened at the nick of time. Jessica Jones came charging at him with a car and Luke Cage followed up by landing a barrage of punches until he is finally taken down for good.

Willis Stryker was eventually bailed out in court when his lawyer was able to make it look like Stryker is a victim of vigilantism. Reporter Ben Urich from Daily Bugle came to the hospital where Black Cat is admitted and Hammerhead showed up too announcing an upcoming gang-war. Since things are going crazy-pants, Jessica called in an old favor and recruited Deadpool for help.

Elsewhere, Diamondback meets his secret benefactor, who turns out to be former Kingpin, Wilson Fisk. Stryker is advised to tighten loose ends of their plan and is warned about new players like master assassin Elektra being in town.

Elektra Natchios came across Danny Rand on a rooftop as the latter asks why she previously broke into their office. Instead of answering, she responds by starting a fight with him, which is officially their first ever. She bested him for a while and had Danny on ropes but he only knocks her out by using his chi energy.

Meanwhile, Diamondback walks into Hammerhead's pub with intent to take it for himself and he does so when one of his own men tipped off by the former shot the latter in head with a high-caliber gun, killing him.

Daredevil asks Elektra about why she broke into their office and what she knows about Willis. When he let her go afterwards, a friction among his peers create regarding trust issues among them. The Punisher was trying to snipe on him from afar but Deadpool decided to butt in, literally. Their fight alerted the Defenders and they came after Castle.

However, adding Wade Wilson has only caused them trouble and the Merc with a Mouth soon took an exit. As Willis Stryker assembles Fixer, Moonstone and Titania to be part of his new crew, The Hood returns to bring on more chaos.

Defenders – Kingpins of New York

"Kingpins of New York" steps into the second phase of a bigger plan that started following the events of "Diamonds Are Forever" storyline. Collecting issues #06-10 of the fifth ongoing volume of Defenders monthly series from Marvel Comics, the arc was plotted by writer Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers Disassembled, House of M) and artist David Marquez (Civil War II, Invincible Iron Man – Reboot) helped him portraying his layout.

The current series bears heavy influence from Marvel's The Defenders TV show from online streaming-service Netflix and even the roster is following TV line-up of Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist.

As former Kingpin of crime in is out from his regular business, there is a power vacuum created in his absence and every other bad-guy of New York is seemingly trying to earn that title. Many characters have gone through shocking experience while many showed up as a guest; most notably Elektra Natchios.

During the Elektra/Iron Fist confrontation, she fairly made a point fighting the Immortal Iron Fist that why even a guy like Wolverine seeks to train with her when is in trouble. Also, special appearance by Colleen Wing, Echo, Misty Knight, Spider-Woman and White Tiger was quite a fresh breeze.

Defenders – Diamonds Are Forever | Comics

Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage must form The Defenders to keep the streets safe from a deadly enemy of past.

Harlem's very own bulletproof man Luke Cage was coming back home from the market and talking to some schoolgirls of the neighborhood when he is suddenly ambushed with a rocket launcher. Cage quickly jumped off to save the bystanders.

He then rushed to a nearby building rooftop to chase the assailant but found a few diamond on the ground. He then receives a call and went to hospital to see his wife Jessica Jones, who was also attacked in her Alias Investigations Office and left heavily injured.

Daredevil came following them as someone attacked his alter ego Matt Murdock too in broad daylight and points out that someone has targeted four of them. Before Luke could ask about the fourth victim, Danny Rand, the Iron Fist was also marked.

As they were discussing who it could be, Jessica regains consciousness only to reveals it was Diamondback who came at her office to talk to her about a recent raid by vigilante hero Daredevil, Iron Fist and her husband Luke Cage at Club Ultimate. When she asks him to leave, he shot at her and then left some diamonds by her side.

Black Cat then goes to meet Diamondback at his club and asks him about his intention, also pointing out his unusual return from being dead. As he explains his plan to take over New York while Hammerhead makes a call to Luke Cage to inform him on Willis Stryker.

Shortly, Cage comes crashing down seeking revenge over Willis for shooting his wife but the latter came prepared as he incapacitates Luke with toxic dust and left him to die after giving him a severe beating while Black Cat watched it all in horror.

Jessica meets Daredevil and Iron Fist in a bar as her investigation gave her no lead on Diamondback so far and Matt proposes that they should team up. She rushes to Night Nurse's clinic as soon as she hears Luke's news. With assistance from Vampire Hunter Blade, Nurse Linda Carter eventually manages to save Luke.

Jessica goes straight up to Club Ultimate to confront Diamondback as Matt and Danny join her but the villain surprisingly overpowers them all and ran. The trio then gave him a chase on street only to be gunned down by another vigilante known as The Punisher.

Danny, Jessica and Matt wake up at Night Nurse's clinic beside Luke Cake, who is surprised to hear that Frank Castle has actually shot at them. While Daredevil and Luke cage goes to apprehend Castle for some questioning, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist decide to take on Diamondback.

However, Willis tossed Jessica within her car when he spotted her and then broke Danny's back after blocking one of his powerful chi-Punch with ease. The mean street of New York now just got even meaner with their entire rampage and this marks a new formation of The Defenders.

The Punisher Strikes!

They brought back one of the oldest villain from Luke Cage's life who was dead for a long time and then just to make things a bit more interesting, Marvel dropped The Punisher in the story. Looks like Willis Stryker himself was quite a handful for the four of the Defenders of New York with his newfound enhanced strength.

There was a small cameo of Elektra, who is marking her return into their lives. When this is all set and done, a certain Merc with a Mouth is called in by private eye Jessica Jones to lend a hand or two in upcoming arc "Kingpins of New York".

Venom – Homecoming | Comics

Former Army Ranger Lee Price was thinking about how life choices are so easy for bad guys and how it takes a lot of strength to do the right thing at all times to be a good guy. He is currently looking for a job in New York City just to pay his rents and his friend Tony has set him up with Mac Gargan for an interview.

Trying to intimidate his new recruit, Gargan asks him if he has ever killed anyone and what was the reason for his discharge, to which Lee responds by saying, he can kill people if needed and two of his fingers blew out in the line of duty, which has classified him as "disabled".

Meanwhile, the Venom symbiote was wandering without a host for some time after being separated from Flash Thompson. When Lee and his friends showed up at their spot at that night for the job Gargan offered, it was an exchange between Tombstone's gang and Black Cat's gang.

It went sour and Tombstone's people start pulling their guns and then suddenly out of nowhere, the symbiote arrives at the scene and almost immediately bonded with Lee. Surprisingly enough, Lee gained total control over the suit and trashed his enemies.

Venom – Homecoming | Comics

He then kills his own peers and a homeless man to eradicate all evidence from scene before taking all the crates with him to his home. Back at his place, his suit was having a psychic struggle with Lee over taking control on him but it fails due to his training in army.

The next day, he goes to meet crime boss Black Cat to return her goodies back to her and decides to join her gang. Seeing Mac Gargan working for her, the symbiote protests his idea and even made him vomit to create a scene, which Gargan finds quite fishy.

When Lee returned to his apartment, he stumbled onto an assassin named Firebug, who is here on behalf of his boss to make him pay for murdering Tombstone's gang. As the guy had power of pyrokinesis, Venom finds it hard to fight back but to save Lee's life, it helped anyway.

At that very moment, FBI Agent Coyle Bagman and Wambaugh, who were keeping an eye on Lee decides to intervene and take him into custody. Lee escapes but the agents find him again, forcing to work for them whether he likes it or not as they are capable of neutralizing him anytime they want if he doesn't comply.

Deciding to unravel what is really at play with her new hired gun Lee Price, Black Cat sends him to scare off a Daily Bugle reporter from a story he's been working on, where Gargan tags along with him as Scorpion. The assignment quickly turned into a fight between the two.

When footage of their brawl goes live on social media, it catches the eyes of Spider-Man and he decides to bump in. Still, things start getting out of hand and the person who has the most experience with symbiotes; Eddie Brock enters the scene.

Marvel Comics
hires comic-book writer Mike Costa (Web Warriors of the Spider-Verse – Electroverse, Web Warriors of the Spider-Verse – Spiders Vs.) and artist Gerardo Sandoval (Age of Apocalypse – Warzones!, Korvac Saga – Warzones!) to cook up a brand-new storyline for their re-launch of new Venom monthly ongoing title in 2017.

Classic Spider-Man villains Black Cat and Scorpion also made special appearance into this arc which collects first six issues from the series. Plus, a new host for Klyntar is found in Lee Price, who has demonstrated his capability as a psychotic killer and to become a notorious villain.

Deadliest Fanged Monster

One of Spider-Man's arch nemesis for years, Venom returns with his third ongoing monthly series but this time, the suit didn't return as "Lethal Protector" Eddie Brock was during his run, nor "Agent of the Cosmos" it became with Flash Thompson. This time, the alien symbiote finds a host that is evil and it would still be an understatement to describe him.

Things will go crazy if he ever stumbles onto another deadly symbiote Carnage in Venom suit or worse, if Carnage chose him as new host. The series will explore new turn of events in next storyline "Land Before Crime" and paves a way for a few more in line.
