The Manhunters were created by the Guardians of the Universe millennia before the formation of the Green Lantern Corps.


They were tasked with enforcing law and order on the universe; however, they eventually came to believe that, since only living beings commit crimes, having life was in itself a crime. This belief led to them massacring all the inhabitants of the Forbidden Zone, which has caused Atrocitus to hate the Guardians and form the Red Lantern Corps.

For their actions, the Manhunters were eventually deactivated. Yet, battalions of them remained hidden on planets throughout the universe. Thousands of years later, the Manhunters were re-activated by the extra-dimensional being the Anti-Monitor to help him destroy the universe.
