The Hunter-Killers is an U.S. government organization that specializes in capturing or killing superhumans. It appears in The Darkness comics series.
After bunch of superhumans known as "Ultra-Sapiens" went rogue decades ago, the U.S. government created a watchdog taskforce that employs registered Ultra-Sapiens to find those of their kind who are hidden in plain sight. Members of this elite group, trained to contain and neutralize any Ultra-Sapiens who are deemed a threat, are known as Hunter-Killers.
