The hunt is on
The last few months have been spent getting a closer look at the classic Marvel heroes who’ll be popping up in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, but today’s feature is a bit different. This time around, we get some backstory for The Hunter, a character made especially for Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
Centuries ago, the Hunter was born the only child of an ordinary man and a powerful immortal. When the Hunter’s father fell victim to a plague, the Hunter’s mother, the sorceress Lilith, was consumed by grief. Her inner turmoil twisted her magic and led her down a path of darkness until she became a demi-goddess of evil. As she and her demonic hordes ravaged the Earth, the Hunter was raised in secret by Lilith’s sister, Caretaker, as a weapon against Lilith. When the Hunter came of age, they proved the only hero strong enough to defeat Lilith and restore peace.
However, the battle was won at great cost, and the Hunter was slain alongside the demon mother. Both were buried and forgotten for centuries, until Lilith was raised by the infamous Hydra organization, her devastating powers augmented and amplified by modern technology and magic. Although the Hunter has been resurrected as well, they are haunted by their own demons of grief and guilt, leaving them to battle not only their mother, but also their inner darkness and light.
