"The Gauntlet" and "Grim Hunt" are 2009-2010 storylines published by Marvel Comics. Despite being more issues "The Gauntlet" was solicited as leading up to the "Grim Hunt" story, and the two storylines are interconnected. Written by The Amazing Spider-Man architects (Mark Waid, Marc Guggenheim, Fred Van Lente and Joe Kelly), "The Gauntlet" is not a strict event or storyline; it is the branding that indicates the direction of Spider-Man's life. In effect it is an event similar to Dark Reign only focusing on Spider-Man and his circle.[1] "Grim Hunt" directly follows "The Gauntlet" and acts as a sequel of sorts to "Kraven's Last Hunt".

Premise[edit]

The story features many old Spider-Man villains: Sandman, Electro, Chameleon, Mysterio, Hammerhead, Lizard, Morbius, the Living Vampire and Rhino[2][2][3] as well as appearances by Deadpool,[4] Scorpion II, Vulture (Jimmy Natale), and Juggernaut.

"The Gauntlet is basically the over-arching theme of the Spidey stores starting in November. It's built of individual stories bring back Spidey's classic enemies. So it's not some 18-part story, where you're going to see "The Gauntlet Part 7" and "Part 8" and so on. What it is is sort of a branding for the level of conflict building in Spider-Man's life. The classic villains returning one after the other, but they're not necessarily working together. There's not some secret mastermind behind it all, bringing them all together. The fact that it's so relentless and that these battles and fights build throughout several months is going to have a cost for Peter Parker, and perhaps someone is going to take advantage of that." --The Amazing Spider-Man editor Steve Wacker[1]

The Gauntlet[edit]

Power to the People[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #612 through #614, titled the "Power to the People," the story describes how Electro runs a public movement called "Power to the People" against Dexter Bennett and the New York Stock Exchange, because his life is in ruins. Because of this Electro is believed to be a hero in New York and Spider-Man is criticized by the people of New York after attacking Electro. Electro makes a deal to Dexter Bennett to be cured by calling off the campaign. The Mad Thinker attempts to cure him until Spider-Man interferes, making Electro an artificial electrical thunderbolt. He uses this power to betray Bennet. Spider-Man eventually defeats him but not until Benett is crippled by falling debris and the Daily Bugle is destroyed. Electro is then shown in the epilogue running into Sasha Kravinoff and the Chameleon in his new jail cell.

Keemia's Castle[edit]

Someone manages to steal three top secret files about the three murders. Spider-Man traces the murderer to Governor's Island, where he finds Keemia. Sandman is revealed to be on the island and he proclaims himself as Keemia's father. In the very next issue, a few of the copies of Sandman, after confronting Spider-Man, confess that they are the actual killer of the mother and two others. Sandman, shocked that his own duplicates could free themselves from his control, begins battling his other duplicates. Spider-Man then obliterates Sandman with a fan, and gets back to Manhattan with Keemia. Keemia is then taken into foster care against her and Peter's will.

Rage of The Rhino[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #617, titled "Rage of The Rhino," a new villain in a Rhino suit is told by Sasha Kravinoff that he can gain honor by killing Aleksei Sytsovich, the original Rhino. However, Aleksei no longer has his Rhino-suit and is living with his new wife, Oksana. Meanwhile, Peter begins working full-time at the Front Line and on his first story the new Rhino attacks Aleksei. Spider-Man fights the new Rhino to protect Aleksei and is defeated. He later meets up with Aleksei who managed to get away and convinces him not to put his Rhino suit back on.

Mysterioso[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #618 through #620, titled "Mysterioso," the issues reveal that the Maggia is on the brink of destruction due to the loss of Silvermane during his gang's shoot-out against Owl's gang, Bruno Karnelli's bad leadership, and fighting with Mister Negative as well as Hammerhead siding with him. The Maggia hires Mysterio to help them get out of their problems, but he accepts only to serve his purposes. In a fight between the Maggia, Mister Negative, and Spider-Man, most of the Maggia die and Mysterio loses all of the money he gained through this endeavor. Afterwards, Mysterio is approached by Chameleon (disguised as Jean DeWolff) who tells Mysterio that he has some friends that are "dying to meet him."

Out for Blood[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #621, titled "Out for Blood", the Black Cat helps Spider-Man to steal the vial of Peter's blood that Mister Negative has and replaces it with a vial of pig blood so Mister Negative is unaware of losing the ability to kill Spider-Man through his Devil's Breath formula.

Scavengers[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #623 and #624, titled "Scavengers," Electro breaks the new Vulture out of prison. He wants revenge on the person who turned him into a monster, and he is told that J. Jonah Jameson did this to him. The mob starts pulling up fake claims that Jameson had created the new Vulture and the media gets a hold of it. Spider-Man finds out and arrives at City Hall just in time to save Jameson. The Vulture manages to escape when Spider-Man runs out of web fluid. The Vulture learns the truth about Jameson and the mob and attacks the gangsters. Meanwhile, Peter decides to edit a photo to prove Jameson's innocence. However, Jameson reveals that the photo is a fake and fires Peter in public who ends up running out of city hall. Peter wonders how things could get worse for him as the Vulture flies overhead.

Endangered Species[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #625, titled "Endangered Species," is a continuation of the story "Rage of The Rhino" from The Amazing Spider-Man #617. Aleksei, the original Rhino, and his wife try to go into hiding in protective custody, but the new Rhino attacks the vehicle taking them to a safehouse and Oksana is killed. Aleksei is so enraged by this he redons his old Rhino suit and fights the new Rhino. Spider-Man tries to stop all of this from happening, but he fails. In the end, the old Rhino kills the new Rhino.

Peter saves her, then changes into Spider-Man now that his powers are back. He saves Scorpion from The Hood and she manages to deliver the suit. When Peter gets back to his and Michelle's apartment the two agree to a truce.

Something Can Stop the Juggernaut[edit]

The Amazing Spider-Man #627 through #629 is titled "Something Can Stop the Juggernaut," which is a reference to the story "Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut!" and serves as a sequel to that story. A new Captain Universe is created by the Uni-Power to fix fractures in the tectonic plates beneath New York City that were created during the "Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut!" story. Captain Universe instead tries to kill the Juggernaut and Spider-Man gets involved trying to save the Juggernaut's life. When the new Captain Universe insists on killing the Juggernaut instead of fixing the tectonic plates, the Uni-Power leaves him and enters the Juggernaut. The Juggernaut uses the power of Captain Universe to repair the damage to the tectonic plates.

Amazing Spider-Man #628 also features a short story of Spider-Man and Iron Man fighting Absorbing Man.

Shed[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #630 through #633, titled "Shed," it starts by showing that Dr. Curt Connors has a new job and he has lost custody of his son, Billy. After his boss berates him and prevents him from taking his Lizard suppressant Connors transforms and eats his boss. Billy Connors is kidnapped by Ana Kravinoff after she left his foster mother for dead, and Ana abandons Billy when the Lizard arrives. Connors's personality fights with the his reptilian will, but the Lizard drowns out Connors's and eats Billy while Ana and Alyosha watch on. Then the Lizard sheds his skin and becomes a new form. This form is smarter than any previous form of the Lizard and has the telepathic abilities to connect to the "lizard part" of the human brain. However, some of Connors's emotions were passed to this new Lizard which causes him regret for what he has done.

Grim Hunt preludes[edit]

In Amazing Spider-Man: Grim Hunt: The Kraven Saga, a free one-shot, Spider-Man has a dream revealing the dark future that awaits him and his kin. In the Amazing Spider-Man: Origin of the Hunter one-shot Ana Kravinoff looks over some of her father's journals recounting the original Kraven's skirmishes with Spider-Man.

Grim Hunt[edit]

In The Amazing Spider-Man #634 Peter is approached at his apartment by a severely wounded Kaine. Then an explosion is heard outside and Peter sees Arachne fighting Ana and Alyosha Kravinoff, so he rushes to help her. After a battle with them, they go to Mattie Franklin's apartment where they find Ezekiel, a wall-crawling superhuman who had died prior to these events. Ezekiel starts to talk about a war between spiders and hunters. Mattie Franklin is killed by Sasha Kravinoff as a sacrifice that resurrects Vladimir Kravinoff as a large humanoid-lion creature. Sasha says they will need the blood of Spider-Man to properly resurrect Sergei.

In The Amazing Spider-Man #635 Spider-Man, Arachne, and Ezekiel go to search for Araña who is the next target. They find her already under attack by the Kravinoffs and join the fight. However, they are defeated and Arachne and Araña are captured. Kaine arrives late since the Kravinoffs already escaped and tells Spider-Man he should run. Spider-Man and Ezekiel have a long discussion before they leave for the Kravinoff's base. Once there, Ezekiel reveals himself to be the Chameleon, and Spider-Man is defeated. In the presence of the Kravinoffs and Mysterio, Spider-Man is then put on a table where he is killed with a knife. With Spider-Man's death, Sergei Kravinoff steps out of his grave.

In The Amazing Spider-Man #636 Kraven gets acquainted with his family after his awakening. Kraven states that Sasha restored him with corrupted blood, or the "unlife". They pull off the mask of the corpse of Spider-Man hung in their mantel and find out that it is Kaine in Spider-Man's costume. Peter finds a coffin with Kaine's corpse along with his black suit with a note from Kraven reading "Hunt Me".

In The Amazing Spider-Man #637 Spider-Man puts his black suit on again and goes on to take revenge on the Kravinoff family. Madame Web is killed by Sasha, but before dying she transfers her powers to Arachne. Spider-Man defeats the Chameleon, Alyosha, and Vladimir. He then ambushes Sasha and violently tears part of Sasha's face off with his wall-climbing power for what happened to Mattie Franklin, Madame Web, and Kaine. While Spider-Man fights Kraven, Araña fights both Sasha and Ana. Spider-Man defeats Kraven and is about to kill him with a spear when Kraven whispers "thank you" and Arachne begs Spider-Man not to kill Kraven. Arachne shows him a future where Spider-Man turned into an outcast killer because of killing Kraven. With Spider-Man silent, Kraven begs him to end his life as he believes his life is linked to Spider-Man and cannot die by any other hand, and while he was dead, he was apparently in a better place. Due to the visions that Arachne received, Spider-Man reluctantly lets Kraven live and states that his return gave him a second chance and he should use it. Spider-Man idly suggests that Kraven should go and be a dentist or something. The Kravinoff family then disappear in a flash, leaving the spiders alone before they can hand them over to the authorities. Spider-Man, Araña (now in Arachne's costume) and Arachne (no longer in costume, and now blind due to her gaining Madame Web's powers) bury Kaine and Cassandra in a potter's field. Arachne, now the new Madame Web, predicts that the Kravinoffs will be back, simultaneously assuring Spider-Man and Araña that she is fine with the trade-off of her vision for Madame Web's powers. In the Savage Land, Kraven decides to hunt his own family where if they survive long enough, they could be called a Kravinoff. He breaks Sasha's neck for arguing back and euthanizes Vladimir due to respect for the dead. Alyosha then leaves but Ana then makes a deal with Kraven: if she kills her brother, he will train her and create a stronger family. If not, he will forget about family. In the epilogue, Kaine crawls out of his grave, mutated into a more spider-like form - including six extra eyes in a spider-like pattern - now referred to as 'Tarantula', implied to be the result of Kraven's resurrection creating an imbalance.

Other versions[edit]

What If?[edit]

  • An alternative possibility for the events of Grim Hunt begins with the decision of Spider-Man to kill Kraven as Kraven insisted. Spider-Man is conflicted and runs back into the arms of Mary Jane after killing Kraven. She is thrilled until she finds an issue of a newspaper that pegs Spider-Man as the murderer of Kraven. He says it was a mistake coming to her. After a heated exchange with Mary Jane at the bridge, he goes to his apartment as Peter Parker to find an intervention waiting for him, and drunkenly confesses to Spider-Man having murdered Norman Osborn in the Raft. After being refuted, he decides to discard his Spider self and lives the life of Kraven. He has the Kravinoff family under his command. Julia Carpenter, the new Madame Web, uses her own army of Spiders: Venom, Anti-Venom, and Spider-Woman to fight Peter. The battle takes the lives of all involved except Peter and a wounded Madame Web. Madame Web teleports to get Araña to confront and defeat Peter. Peter ends up blinded by a shotgun he was attempting to use on her. Araña takes over as the head Spider while Peter is left permanently blinded and distant from Mary Jane.[56]
