Early Life

Lance Hunter was born in Dymchurch, Kent, England. When he was older enough he joined the royal Royal Navy rising to the rank of Commodore and after that he was recruited by MI6.[2]


Lance helped form S.T.R.I.K.E. a UK based intelligence agency to counter S.H.I.E.L.D.. He was asked by S.H.I.E.L.D. to help Captain America and Captain Britain in defeating the Red Skull While back in the field he was replaced by Tod Radcliffe as director S.T.R.I.K.E. but was revealed to be an allies of the Red Skull and was shot dead by Nick Fury. After this Lance was placed back in charge of the agency.[3] Hunter and Fury met with the Prime Minister James Callaghan who was angry over the lack of progress the two agency had so far.Working together they find reports of the Skull's operations at docklands in which they sent agents to monitor.[4] Hunter however received a phone call informing him that the PM had been kidnapped, by being teleported out of 10 Downing Street. The Skull made his ransom demand giving them until 6:00 pm to surrender themselves or the PM would die.[5] Fury demanded Hunter let S.H.I.E.L.D. in, but he declined believing this would cause an international incident. He drugged Fury so he would not cause anymore trouble.

Hunter and Nick Fury

In an address to Parliament he asked the MP's to decide whether to surrender or not.[6] They decided to surrender to buy more time. He returned to the S.T.R.I.K.E. base to revive Fury. They could not find the hostages but did learn the location of the germ bomb hidden inside Big Ben. While trying to stop the bomb he was trapped on the hand on the clock face as he ordered the mechanism to be stopped.[7] Hunter struggled to hold on for his life as the clock moved again.[8] The Skull teleported in to stop Hunter.[9] But Captain Britain arrived to stop him giving Hunter more time. But as the Skull fell he activated rockets in his boots. Fury and Cap arrived to save Hunter revealing they had found the Red Skull's base and deactivated the computer controlling the bomb.[10] He later tried to recruit Captain Britain after rescuing him from the police several times.[11]

Hunter teamed up with Captain Britain again to take down Lord Hawk[12] However during a fight was Hawk Captain Britain was severely injured.[13] He believed Captain Britain was about, it was revealed his spirit was summoned by Merlyn and Roma to Otherworld. Once there he fought with a giant monster. However the injuries appeared on his real body as he lied unconscious.[14] Hunter had the S.T.R.I.K.E. medics to keep him alive. However after sometime Hunter believed the Captain was lost.[15] However when his spirit returned to his body healed it healed his injuries and got out of bed much to the shock of Hunter.[16]

Civil War

Commodore Lance Hunter was at some time Head of Armed Forces Paranormal Response (AFRP), and was, along Alistaire Stuart, working with the S.H.I.E.L.D. British Liaison Comtessa Allegra de Fontaine on the British version of the Superhuman Registration Act (N°1521 (C.69)). Part of that function was also to explain the Act's ramifications to the British superhuman population. In that optic, the three intelligence agents met Joseph Hauer, Pete Wisdom, Captain Britain and Union Jack to brief them about.[17]

Secret Invasion

During the Secret Invasion, Joint Intelligence Committee of the United Kingdom (JIC) Chair Mortimer Grimsdale was revealed to be a Skrull agent and was killed. Lance Hunter was then appointed JIC Chair, leaving the head of the AFRP for the charge of the British Intelligence.[18]


Lance Hunter decided to let S.H.I.E.L.D. take control of the cleanup when Mys-Tech was destroyed, he did this because at the time M-13 did not have the resources for such an operation. He also kept MI-13 in the dark about the whole operation, which angered Pete Wisdom when he learned the truth.[19]
