A malform of the Old West era, Skinhunter is a member of Generation Hex. Perhaps the strangest malform of all, Skinhunter is a "half-breed" whose very skin and bone is more flexible than a cowpoke's sleeping habits. Skinhunter is always hungry for more skin to add to what he's already got. There is a possible love triangle among Johnny Random, White Whip, and Skinhunter (although Johnny Random and Skinhunter do not seem to know about each other).

He is an amalgam of Marvel's Skin and DC's Scalphunter.
