Kraven buried Spider-Man's body on the grounds of his own estate. The next step was for Sergei to become his enemy. Kraven dressed himself in a Spider-Man costume, and began patrolling the city. Although he did save lives,(including Mary Jane Watson's) he actually killed some criminals. Kraven bested Spider-Man's talents by capturing the villain Vermin, whom Spider-Man was unable to defeat on his own.Two weeks after his defeat, Spider-Man awoke inside his coffin. He had only been shot with a tranquilizer, and was buried alive. An enraged Spider-Man broke free and began to hunt down Kraven. Upon discovering Kraven's location Spider-Man started attacking him. Kraven felt no need to fight back. It was over, and the Hunter had won. He challenged Spider-Man to have a turn with the Vermin, but he refused, and the villain attacked him. Kraven helped Spider-Man, and later ended his own life.
