The Hunted page 5 by Gaston25 The Hunted page 5 by Gaston25
Nightshrike is finally captured and held within the Havoc Unit HQ. Director Sanders is extremely proud of Slade's hard work, but seems disturbed that the Havoc Unit's database is unable to identify Nightshrike's true identity. It seems like we will never see Nightshrike again as he heads to the fortress! Unless that's what he had planned all along...

This is an ongoing side story I have been drawing for the past few years and takes place in the :icondeviantuniverse: as fun project between my character Nightshrike, Agent 42X and the Thunder Force members.
Here's where it all started:

I enjoy his cunning and obsessive nature more than anything lol. Cunning > super powers

Always enjoy seeing Nightshrike in action, don't care if he's a villain! Lol

Aha! Nightshrike wanted to go to prison - Well that's something at least! Bit disappointed that Thunder Force weren't involved though - the supposed primary super hero team look like idiots here - Nightshrike can pick them off without them even being aware of his existence, but he's attracted the attention of 42X who takes him out in a couple of panels? Kind of disappointed that Slade got such a big push at the expense of the others - but the scene looked fantastic and I'm looking forward to seeing the next stage of Nightshrike's story :)

I have to admit I cut these pages short due to another commitment, but there will be a continuation for sure! A lot of people have voiced their opinion on Nightshrike falling so easily, but there's a master plan behind that devious grin at the end.

I have a continuation planned but it's on hold for the moment. Buried right now in a project.

My guess for every scan coming up empty: Nightshrike has a virus programmed to wipe his identity from every database on Earth if he ever gets captured/killed. Anyone as obsessed with planning as him would have that contingency or something similar.

Outstanding story as always. I have a feeling that Nightshrike is exactly where he wants to be. I strongly doubt he'd be that easily defeated unless it's of his own choice.

Yeah, not a lot happens without Nightshrike having a plan already. This won't be the last time you see him!

I ran out of room/space in the page to explain properly. I have a follow up page planned that will go in to details

These pages came out great! It seems that the rivalry between 42X and Nightshrike has finally ended, though with Nightshrike having a plan up his sleeve already, I doubt this is the last time the two will come face to face.

"...has finally ended..."

Come on, it's 2-0 in 42X's favor. Nightshrike will not let that stand.

Great pages! I've got a feeling they've underestimated Nightshrike. 
He's kind of an evil Batman and Bats would have a contingency plan.

Wow! I never expected Nightshrike to get taken down. Thought he'd be like the Prometheus of the DA universe.

Or is the takedown part of his plan?! Just have to wait and see.
