Nathaniel Richards ended up stranded in the alternate future of Earth-6311 after using one of his transportation devices. He fell in love with a woman Cassandra, and they had a child named Tara. Tara and Franklin were taken to Warlord Kargul for training. Tara became Huntara and Franklin became the Psi-Lord. After Nathaniel left, Huntara became guardian of the timestream. Due to Kargul, she began to think of her father as a traitor to the timeline.
When Johnny Storm went to trial for setting fire to Empire State University, he was attacked in the courtroom by Paibok and Devos. Simultaneously, Klaw attempted to have his revenge upon the Fantastic Four. Upon arriving on Earth-616, Huntara was approached by Klaw and joined his Fearsome Foursome. Working together they attacked the FF. However the Fantastic Four at that time consisted of Spider-Man, Sandman, Silver Sable and Daredevil. The Fearsome Foursome were winning the battle but then the Avengers arrived, so they decided to retreat through a portal opened by Huntara. Daredevil attempted to pursue, but the dimension in which he found himself confused his senses, and he had to be pulled out by Spider-Man. On Paibok's starship they planned to destroy the FF at Four Freedoms Plaza, where they lay in wait for the Fantastic Four's return. When the heroes returned, Huntara launched into battle with Psi-Lord, leading the two of them away from the others. The remaining members of the Fantastic Four were taken out by knock-out gas delivered by Devos and Paibok. The two allies then teleported their captives to Paibok's ship, so that they could turn them over to the Skrull Empire. After they had disappeared, Klaw came out of hiding, and soon took the unconscious body of Ms. Marvel prisoner.
She disassociated herself from Franklin when he sided with his grandfather. Franklin was convinced the Dark Raider was the real culprit, and challenged Kargul's explanation that it was Nathaniel. When Kargul's forces attacked Franklin, Tara sided with her nephew. They returned to Earth-616.
When the Fantastic Four was disbanded after the death of Mr. Fantastic and Doctor Doom, Huntara and Psi-Lord decided to form a team of their own known as the Fantastic Force with Devlor, an Inhuman with the ability to become a giant ape like creature and Vibraxas from Wakanda who could manipulate sound waves. One of their first battles was against Klaw.
They next battled Zarathustra who was raised from childhood to be an assassin for Lord Moses. Paul Alvarez believed that Huntara was his long lost sister Mary Elizabeth Alvarez, who he saw walk into a portal with a mysterious man back when they were children. Huntara was raised by Warlord Kargul in another timeline so the theory seemed somewhat plausible. But it was strongly hinted that Paul Alvarez was wrong and that Zarathustra was really Mary Elizabeth Alvarez.
The Inhuman Seeker tried to apprehend Devlor but determined that he was "the one" and chose to file a report saying Devlor was dead. Devlor mentioned that the Seeker must know what it was like being a freak.
Being very angry with her father, Huntara attacked Nathaniel Richards. However, Franklin Richards soon reminded her that he was the leader of the Fantastic Force, and thereby ordered her to stop her attack so they could hear what his grandfather had to say. Nathaniel explained that Franklin's mother and teammates were about to stand up to a Rogue Watcher and an even greater menace. Kristoff Vernard then advised that Susan Storm-Richards faced inter-spacial danger and that he and the Fantastic Four have been unable to find a means to rescue her. Huntara immediately left the group and transported to the Negative Zone. There she saved Susan Storm from certain death in the Negative Zone's Explosive Area.
They battled Vangaard (Johnny Storm) from an alternate future of Earth-721. They were assisted in battle by the Human Torch and Black Panther. Johnny, through his heroic actions, caused Vangaard to remember his old life as a hero and decided to end his assault.
Diablo also attempted to manipulate Psi-Lord into helping him defeat Mephisto but this only ended with his defeat. The team would meet its end with the return of Reed and the de-aging of Franklin back to a minor, which was all caused by his future son Hyperstorm. It was revealed that much of what Nathaniel had taught Franklin was in an attempt to alter the timeline so that Hyperstorm would not exist.
Psionic Scythe: Huntara has the psionic ability to generate a scythe. The scythe can damage foes mentally and can form teleportational rifts. As well as being able to redistribute force amongst it being so it becomes unbreakable, as it did when Vibraxas tried to use his vibrational powers on it.
