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.

Taking care of his family in Savage Land, Kraven the Hunter wishes to rebuild his legacy with help from High Evolutionary.

However, instead of going after his loved ones they went after all of Spidey's costumed enemies for a grand plan.

Many references to past events that leads back to both Kraven and The Lizard from "Kraven's Last Hunt", "The Gauntlet", "Grim Hunt" and "The Clone Conspiracy" were made throughout entire course of the story.

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.

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.

Venom – Homecoming

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.
