Quote1 He slaughtered my family. And thousands of families. ... The last thing that my child saw in this world was that monster's face. You can be damn well sure when Savage dies the last face that he sees will be mine. Quote2
-- Rip Hunter src

Rip Hunter is a renegade time traveler from the 22nd Century, a former member of the Time Master. He is intent on destroying Vandal Savage.

Rip defied Time Master custom and married. The pair were very happy together and eventually had a son, Jonas. When Vandal Savage launched his campaign to conquer the world in 2166, Rip's wife and son were two of the casualties. Heartbroken and outraged, Rip implored his fellow Time Masters to go back in time and stop Savage before he could rise to power. When he was rebuked, Rip stole a time ship and traveled back to the early 21st Century, gathering a team of heroes and villains from that era to travel through time and destroy Savage and his followers once and for all.

He is currently under arrest by the Time Bureau for his recklessness in trying to prove the existence of Mallus
