Remember the days when the idea of Sony and Marvel getting along to unite their comic cinematic universes was ridiculous? Or back when The Amazing Spider-man 2 did a mediocre job of getting us excited for a Sinister Six spin-off?

Thankfully, those days are no longer and, if rumors are to be believed, the Sinister Six is still a plan on Sony's idea board. With that being said, why are we not trying to cast the Sinister Six yet?!?

That's what I'm here for, folks. Get your casting opinions ready as You Cast the Villain attempts our biggest challenge yet: The Sinister Six. Starting with Kraven the Hunter, here's a little background and then on to the polls.

Born into an aristocracy that had come to an end, Sergei Kravinoff (Russian: Сергей Kravinoff), also known as Kraven, became one of the world's greatest hunters to fulfill his sense of lost nobility.

At some point the notion of big game hunting began to bore the hunter, so his associate (later revealed to be his half-brother) proposed to Kraven that he hunt Spider-Man, and thus gave Kraven new purpose in life. Kraven gained power by drinking rare and exotic jungle elixirs given to him by his voodoo priestess lover -- Calypso. These elixirs gave him the strength and speed of a savage beast, all the better to catch Spider-Man with.

Unable to best the wall-crawler on his own, Kraven sought strength in numbers. Early in his career, he and five other members of Spider-Man's rogues gallery united under the leadership of Doctor Octopus -- brilliant, respected scientist turned tentacled terror. The inaugural incarnation of the Sinister Six also included the shifty Sandman; the illusion-casting Mysterio; the high-flying, lowdown Vulture; and Electro. The villains' master plan: Pummel the wall-crawler one by one until one of them would manage to defeat him. (marvel.wikia)
