In the past, Mr Sinister had hired Kraven the Hunter to collect the genetic DNA samples of the original five X-Men. At the time, the X-Men teamed up with Spider-Man to fight Kraven (who had teamed up with the Blob) and thought that they had successfully thwarted him. It wasn't until a few years later that they realised that there was more to their encounter. After Kraven committed suicide, Spider-Man inspected his personal files to check if he had left any mention of Spider-Man's secret identity. Instead, Spider-Man found a file which detailed the transaction between Sinister and Kraven. Together Spider-Man and a later incarnation of the X-Men destroyed the embryonic clones of the X-Men, and assumed that Sinister had therefore lost the genetic samples of the X-Men. However, Mr Sinsiter later made a deal with another of Spider-Man's foes; Carnage. While Carnage was incarcerated, Sinister telepathically forced the facility's staff into the cafeteria. Once they were alone, Sinister offered to set Carnage free to massacre his captors in exchange for a sample of the symbiote's DNA. Although the X-Men and Spider-Man managed to detain Carnage and return him to his cell, they were unaware of the latest genetic sample that Sinister had collected.
The heroes were ignorant to the fact that Mr Sinister had retained the genetic samples of the first five X-Men and Carnage. For years he laboured in his laboratory to create the perfect slave based on the DNA he'd harvested over the years. The sample that Carnage had provided was tested upon until Sinister had mastered it's malleable abilities without the symbiote's destructive personality. The resulting clone thought he was Kraven the Hunter. However, with the enslaved DNA from Carnage, he was forced to obey Sinsiter. The clone was named Xraven, and as well as the skill & knowledge of Kraven the Hunter he had the mutant abilities of the first five X-Men.
