March 3, 2010 - "Kraven's Last Hunt" lives in infamy, not only as the death of a well-known Spider-Man villain, but also as one of the greatest stories in the wall-crawler's history. That's why Joe Kelly and Michael Lark's upcoming "Grim Hunt" storyline is so significant. As the final chapter in the lengthy "Gauntlet" saga, "Hunt" seems poised to bring back the legendary Sergei Kravinoff after a 20 year absence from the Marvel Universe.
I know I should be inserting a joke about death never sticking in comics here, but I find this interesting. Aside from Gwen Stacy, I never imagined Marvel going down this well again, yet here it is. I guess in comic book standards, they should be commended for managing to go 20 years without reaching back in and bring back Kraven and now's as good a time as any to bring back the genuine article.
Hell, between him and Quentin Beck, we're just about ready to reunite the original Sinister Six.
Well-timed resurrection or yet another guy that should have been left dead? Discuss.
God, why? I meet J.M. DeMattis last summer and one of the coolest guys ever. One of the best Spiderman stories written and once again the editorial regime comes in and ruins it. I can't wait til they finally put everything back before Civil War.

And then put everything back to after the Civil War.
Meanwhile, DC will have Liefeld writing Watchmen 14 while Bart Allen dies and comes back to life a minimum of 6 times.
I still remember the Superman:TAS where they killed off Turpin and did a black screen Kirby tribute. You knew right then and there Bruce Timm and Company got it. I kinda glad he didn't live to see Final Crisis, but I am sure JLU would have made him smile....
