Kaine needs an arch enemy, I was thinking it could end up being Kraven. What do you all think?
He's doing just fine without one already. I like the idea that he's fighting several new enemies than locking onto one villain. Like Agent Venom just kept fighting Jack O'lantern for a while then Crime Master makes the Savage Six which includes Jack... I like Arch Villains, but to simply make his 1st villain encounter be his Arch Nemesis. All the time is whack. I prefer to see Kaine keep fighting these newbies until one does something that's worthy of being his Arch Nemesis. It can be Jackal or Kraven, but I rather wait to officially give him one. (+)
Kaine doesn't really need an archenemy, but he kinda already has two.
Himself and The Jackal.
Yeah, I'd say the Jackal is his arch. However, if they give him a new one it should be one of the goblins. There are enough of them to go around.
And he still is a Violent Anti-Hero. The thing is though he has a 2nd chance at life. Since he's been cured of his illness. He wanted to go to Mexico, but got sidetracked. Ever since then he's been all Heroish. That's a short explanation to not spoil the story. (+)
I'm sure Kaine will end up with a primary villain eventually, but I'm okay with that process taking a while. Jackal seems the most likely candidate, sure, but you never know what might develop. Personally, Ideally, I would like him to wind up in Spidey's situation, where there are actually a couple villains you could make an argument for as being the archenemy. A little competition can't hurt
Kraven should be a Parker villain. Maybe one of the spinoff Kravens?
The ending of issue 6 means it's pretty safe to say Sergei will appear at some point.
Oh naturally, and I should have clarified I meant that he should be a Parker "arch-nem" not an exclusively Parker villain. Of course there should be a confrontation between the two of them, but I don't think he should be shifted from a predominantly Spider-Man villain to a predominantly Scarlet Spider villain. For example, this was done with Kingpin shifting from Spidey to Daredevil back in the day. Or Mystique from Ms. Marvel to X-Men.
