In Mexico, Antonio Kravinoff was a famous Bull Fighter, most known for killing the bulls with his bare hands. Antonio was admired by many people, and was constantly swarmed by his fans in public. However, when he got alone time he went into the woods to hunt animals with his stolen tech.
Offer That Can't be Refused
Eventually, a man named Norman Osborn approached him an offered the chance for the hunt of a life time. Antonio didn't see any reason to say no, so he agreed and was taken back to America for the hunt of his life.
On his way to Oscorp labs, Norman assigned him the code name of the Hunter, which Antonio immediately refused, saying he will be called Kraven. Norman did not argue, out of fear for his life. Kraven was genetically altered by Norman and his associate, Wilson Fisk. His senses were enhanced, he was also given super strength and enhanced speed and durability.
Kraven was given his target, and he immediately sped off in an attempt to kill him. During his first conflict with Spider-Man, his new powers proved to be not enough to take him down. After Spider-Man got away, Kraven returned to Osborn, asking for more enhancements. Norman informs him that more enhancements could kill him, so he instead gives Kraven an array of weapons. After failing to capture Spider-Man several times, his bail was payed by Osborn, and Kraven instead became his body guard.
