Bad guys and aliens beware; Daniel X is out looking for you! You may not survive the encounter! Daniel's Dad was an alien hunter, alien himself to Earth. When Daniel's parents were killed in his Dad's pursuit of Number 1 on his list of aliens, Daniel realized that it was up to him to carry on his Dad's work. Luckily, Daniel has quite a few super abilities, including the power to morph himself into anything he can imagine. Number 7 on the list of aliens may be more than Daniel can handle, but he has help - his friends whom he created himself, and, possibly, Number 7's own son. Based on the novels about Daniel X.
