Synopsis for "Kraven Is the Hunter"Edit

Hitching a ride back to Manhattan on a tug-boat after his fight with the Kingpin, Spider-Man stops to thank Curt Connors for his assistance. After Spidey leaves, Connors begins to feel sick.

Meanwhile, Kraven the Hunter is back in town and upon arriving the meeting place of his employer, he is attacked by the Tarantula. After a brief battle, their employer orders them to stop and tells them that they are to work together to capture school chancellor Richard Gorman, dead or alive.

As Peter visits his Aunt May and Anna Watson, Kraven and the Tarantula succeed in capturing Gorman alive. While at the Daily Bugle, Peter Parker brings Glory to get a job as J. Jonah Jameson's secretary. Surprisingly, she manages to tame the temperamental Jameson, to the shock of everyone present. When Peter learns about Gorman's kidnapping, he goes into action as Spider-Man to try and find Kraven and the Tarantula.

While Spider-Man fights Kraven and his tigers in Central Park, the Tarantula delivers Gorman and to collect payment. His employer however knocks out the Tarantula with gas. While Spider-Man and Kraven's fight takes them over the top of a marquee of a movie theater where Kraven ultimately seals his own defeat when his knife hits one of the marquee's light bulbs, electrocuting Kraven until he passes out.
