Great episode, I really liked the stuff about Kraven since he was always a favourite. I think Kraven's whole hunter schtick had a lot to do with the original story being written in 1964; the Great White Hunter trope was still a thing back then, so the idea of Kraven being a hero to the public would've been believable.

Kraven was obviously a dick and the more we learned about his backstory, the worse he got (like his abusive relationship with Chameleon, who turned out be his step-brother or something like that). The Last Hunt story is definitely a classic, but I remember it being very controversial at the time; some fans thought it out of character for Kraven to use a gun on himself, since he always prided himself on not using one. The zombie Kraven story with Calypso resurrecting him was stupid, and I won't even get into the "Al Kraven" garbage that came later.

If I remember right from Amazings 47 and 49, Kraven's chest device was a ray of some kind (electrical maybe?) that paralyzed Spider-Man's muscles so he couldn't move. Kraven activated it by squeezing his arms against the side of his chest (kinda like the chicken dance the girls mentioned) and Spidey ultimately beat him by ripping out the wires in the device.
