"The Hunter" is the 13th episode of season one of Generator Rex and the 13th of the overall series. It debuted on October 8, 2010.


Rex is targeted by an EVO hunter named Hunter Cain, who leads the public to believe that Providence is ineffective and dangerous.


During a routine job in a small town neighborhood, a Liant that Rex was in the middle of curing is destroyed by Hunter Cain, a Punisher-styled vigilante who uses an advanced weapon known as Sweet Caroline that causes targeted nanites to self-destruct. Hunter claims that Providence has been lying to the public for years and that the EVO crisis is not caused by nanites in every form of life on the planet, but in fact is a disease that spreads from person to person.

Agent Six is able to prevent a fight from breaking out between Rex and Hunter, and when Six and Rex get back to Providence, Hunter's back story is explained. He went insane several months ago when his wife went EVO and had to be euthanized by him. Six cites Hunter as a threat because of his rallying of the public in Ultimate Exposure against Providence. Meanwhile, Rex has lost his will to fight EVOs after an accident in which he was attacked by civilians and injured one by mistake.

Meanwhile, a large amount of phantom-like EVOs are on a rampage at the docks and are immune to conventional weapons. Hunter and his private army arrive on scene with their specialized anti-nanite weapons and are able to fight off a large amount of the phantoms. Rex, having finally regained his belief in humanity, arrives to fight the phantoms and is attacked by Hunter.

While the two are alone, Hunter reveals that he spent a fortune cloning a lone phantom EVO to create the small army to prove Providence's ineffectiveness (not knowing a news team has captured his admitting the crime). After a rough battle, Rex ties up Hunter and leaves him for Providence, and with the help of Hunter's not so loyal army, Rex is able to kill off the phantoms.

The episode ends with dozens of interviews about how Rex saved lives before, at least partially repairing his reputation and strengthening his new found belief in humanity; however, he knows that another person will take Hunter's place.
