In accordance with the naming conventions, it has been suggested that this page be moved to: Rhino (Kraven) (Earth-616) (Discuss). Please do not move this page yet, as the correct name could still be in discussion and may change again soon. A robot will make the necessary page moves once any discussions are resolved.
When the original Rhino turned down Doctor Trama's offer to be upgraded, she was forced to look elsewhere. She eventually found someone and equiped him with an all-new Rhino costume. His first act was to seek out Aleksei to kill him, so that he could ascend as the one true Rhino. When Spider-Man interferred, he left because there was no honor in killing a broken old man.
The Rhino later attacks Aleksei and ends up murdering his wife Oksana forcing Aleksei to once again don the Rhino costume. After destroying the other Rhino's armor, Aleksei then kills him despite his pleas.
