Nick Spencer Rewrites Continuity to Give Kraven His Own Clone Saga in Amazing Spider-Man #16

Kraven the Hunter has been capturing animal-themed characters in the background of Nick Spencer's Amazing Spider-Man run (with artists Ryan Ottley, Humberto Ramos, and Chris Bachalo), and it's all been leading up to Hunted, the story so big it can't fit into the regular Amazing Spider-Man issues and requires multiple ".HU" issues of Amazing Spider-Man each month.

But if you think that's just typical Marvel excess, you might want to consider that there's actually a good reason the story needs so much space. Because in this preview of next week's Amazing Spider-Man #16, Kraven adds a few new members to his family. 87 of them in fact, all clones of himself, created by the High Evolutionary to age at an accelerated rate so that Kraven can quickly raise them into men and turn them into Hunters.

Because if there's one thing the Spider-Man mythos needed, it's another Clone Saga?

We'll see how this pans out as the Road to Hunted begins in next week's Amazing Spider-Man #16.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
