In a stunning instant of shocking violence, Kraven stands finally triumphant over Peter Parker's seemingly dead body. And to prove that he is the hero's master, Kraven will don Spider-Man's costume - and become him! Experience the classic, genre-defining Spider-Man shocker like never before in this new adaptation!
