The Star Hunters were a team of outcasts led by the soldier of fortune, Donovan Flint. The only way to end their exile from Earth is to find the origin of man in the universe.
The Star Hunters were infected by the Corporation controlling Earth with a virus which would cause their genes to mutate if they set foot on the planet again without receiving an antidote which the Corporation would only give to them on completion of their mission - to learn the true origins of man. The Corporation also implanted a device in the brain of Star Hunter Mindy Yano which enabled them to periodically download her experiences to them (causing her to have epileptic seizures), making her an unwitting spy. A near death experience following the destruction of the Sunrider, however, led Donovan Flint to an encounter with an alien known as the Entity which revealed to him that he and his comrades were caught up in an eternal war for control of the multiverse between the forces of light and darkness; the Corporation and their allies, the alien Blood Legion, were the champions of the opposing side (though they were unaware of this) while Flint had been chosen to be the champion of the Sornaii, the Entity's race. Flint took control of the group from Corporation agent Darcy Vale and led the Star Hunters back to Earth in their new ship, the Sunrider II, in an attack on the Corporation, during which Star Hunter Theodore 'Mac' McGavin was killed and Flint himself crash landed on Earth. Flint was left trying to figure out how to get off the planet before he began to mutate. Whether Flint and his crew succeeded in defeating the Corporation and averting universal chaos is unknown.
Transportation: the starship Sunrider; later, Sunrider II after the original was destroyed.
- The universe in which the Star Hunters series was set was never specified, but when in communication with the Entity, Flint saw images of Claw the Unconquered and Starfire, indicating that the multiverse of the Star Hunters series was indeed the pre-Crisis DC multiverse.
- Furthermore, it was earlier established that Claw's universe was part of a multiverse subset of fifteen linked universes, so presumably the Star Hunters universe is also one of those fifteen in the subset.
