POSITION: Hunter COMIC-BOOK CREDENTIALS: First appeared in Amazing Spider-man #15 in 1964 and quickly became one of Spidey's greatest villains. His greatest moment in comics was during the epic storyline Kraven's Last Hunt in 1987. COMIC-BOOK WEAKNESSES: He dresses like he got changed in a fancy dress store... in the dark. This doesn't always make him look the smoothest villain in comics.
Superhuman strength, stamina and agility; keen senses and reflexes; an expert in hand-to-hand combat... oh and he's a bloody amazing hunter! In fact he's like Steve Irwin on speed. RIP Steve Irwin.
REASON FOR RECRUITMENT: The Ultimate Super Villain Team-Up needs a hunter and there's no one better than Kraven at hunting. Heck the clue is in his title! Kraven has also proved that he can give Spidey a run for his money and would prove very useful at tracking superheroes and eliminating them. Kraven has also got contacts in the criminal underworld as his half-brother is the villainous Chameleon... who could also become a useful contact for the team.
POTENTIAL RISK: Kraven does tend to have his own goals and this could create problems within the group if he goes solo. Plus he might leave one of his pet lions unchained at Super Villain HQ, which will not go down very well with team mates unexperienced at dealing with wild cats.
CHANCES OF SURVIVAL: Pretty good. Kraven is a hunter, so he's used to tackling the crazy creatures and beasts of the jungle and shouldn't have problems with heroes. He's also cheated death a few times too!
IN EVENT OF DEATH BEFORE MISSION... LIKELIHOOD OF REPLACEMENT WITHDEADPOOL: Not likely at all. Deadpool hates lions. Probably.
