The first Manhunter's first appearance was in Quality Comics title Police Comics #8 and his solo stories ended in issue #101. The Quality Comics characters were purchased by DC Comics when Quality went out of business in 1956. Dan Richards would eventually be featured in Young All-Stars and All-Star Squadron.

Donald "Dan" Richards attended the police academy with his girlfriend's brother, Jim, who was at the top of the class, while Dan was at the very bottom. After Jim was framed for a crime he didn't commit, Dan took up the identity of Manhunter to track down the actual killer. He caught the perpetrator and cleared Jim's name. Afterwards, however, he continued to operate as Manhunter. His sidekick was a dog named Thor, who was later revealed to be a robotic sentry operating under the auspices of the Manhunter cult.[1] Dan's granddaughter, Marcie Cooper, became the third Harlequin after he convinced her to join the Manhunters.[2]


Dan Richards was later killed by Mark Shaw, who had fallen back into his Dumas persona.[3]

The first of DC's Manhunters was plainclothes detective Paul Kirk, who helped police solve crimes during the early 1940s. Though the series was entitled "Paul Kirk, Manhunter", Kirk didn't use the Manhunter name as an alias. He appeared in Adventure Comics #58-72. Image File history File links Adv79. ... Image File history File links Adv79. ... DC Comics is an American comic book and related media company. ... Manhunter is a fictional character, a superhero in publications from DC Comics. ... Adventure Comics #296 Adventure Comics is a comic book series published by DC Comics from 1935 to 1983. ...


Beginning with Adventure Comics #73, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby established a new Manhunter, Rick Nelson, big game hunter turned crimefighter. When a friend was murdered, Nelson decided to hunt a more dangerous game: outlaws. He wore a superhero-like red costume with a blue mask though he had no powers. Joe Simon (born 1915) was a comic book author and cartoonist who created or co-created many memorable characters in the Golden Age. ... Jack Kirby (born Jacob Kurtzberg, August 28, 1917 – February 6, 1994) was one of the most influential, recognizable, and prolific artists in American comic books, and the co-creator of such enduring characters and popular culture icons as the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, the Hulk, Captain America, and hundreds...


Though he was obviously a different character than the first DC Manhunter, the name Rick Nelson was quickly changed to Paul Kirk. In the first story, Manhunter is referred to by both names. One can only assume that the editor, unaware this was not the same character, changed the name to Paul Kirk. In any case, the character was named Paul Kirk exclusively afterwards.


The Simon/Kirby Manhunter appeared in Adventure Comics until #92 in 1944, when wartime paper shortages caused DC to drop page counts and thus his strip.


Although Dan Richards and Paul Kirk never met in Golden Age stories, being as they were published by different companies, they have been retconned in DC continuity as having met, and arguing over who should get the Manhunter name.[4] They resolved the dilemma by joining different teams: Dan Richards became a member of the Freedom Fighters, while Paul Kirk stayed as a member of the All-Star Squadron.

The All-Star Squadron was an American comic book (1981-1987) created by Roy Thomas and published by DC Comics about the adventures of a large team of superheroes which comprised of most of the feature characters owned by the company that appeared in the Golden Age of Comic Books...


Although Paul Kirk's fate as a fictional creation seemed to be that of an obscure character last appearing in 1944, such was not to be. Many years later, in 1973, Paul Kirk was resurrected in a story by Archie Goodwin and Walt Simonson.[5] He had been killed by an elephant on safari in the 1940s, but his body had been saved by the Council, a secret society dedicated to controlling the world. After his return from death, Kirk had a healing factor (it was later revealed that this was due to an injection of nanobots) and was trained extensively in the martial arts by Asano Nitobe. He was also the genetic source for many clones, which the Council intended to use as their paramilitary arm (why have one best fighter in the world and a bunch of inferiors, when you can have every member be the best?), with the original Paul Kirk as their leader. Archie Goodwin (September 8, 1937 – March 1, 1998) was an American comic book writer, editor, and artist. ...

The Council underestimated Kirk's morals, though, and when he refused to kill a police officer, they realized he couldn't be their assassin and decided to have him terminated.


Manhunter defeated the Council, deliberately sacrificing his life to do so. Interpol agent Christine St. Clair and Nitobe believed that all the clones were dead, but swore to kill any they found in the future.[6] This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


The 1970s Paul Kirk/Manhunter stories appeared primarily as short backups in Batman's Detective Comics, at the time going through an incarnation as a "100-Page Giant" featuring mostly reprints and non-Batman stories. Only with the last episode of the series did Manhunter move to the front of the book, in a full-length team-up with Batman. The stories were all written by Goodwin, and were the breakout work for future fan favorite artist Simonson. Goodwin's work on Manhunter, in which he both updated an obscure Golden Age hero, and, in the series' last episode, took the daring approach of killing him off (one of the few comic book deaths that has actually "taken" and not been reversed or retconned away in the decades since it occurred) is very well-regarded by both fans and other comics professionals.

Mark Shaw was a public defender, unhappy about how easily criminals manipulated the system and got off without punishment. Shaw's uncle Desmond introduced him to an ancient sect of crime fighters called the Manhunters. Shaw contacted the Grand Master, the sect's leader, through a magical lion medallion. Shortly, he assumed the Manhunter name and costume from a previous Manhunter.[7],[8] Image File history File links Download high resolution version (400x614, 154 KB) Summary Obtained from http://www. ...

The Manhunter sect was comprised of androids, created billions of years before by the Guardians of Oa to police the galaxy. For millennia, they served the Guardians well. However, the Manhunters became obsessed with the act of 'hunting' criminals. Their code, "No Man Escapes The Manhunters", became more important to them than seeing justice done. Eventually, the androids rebelled against the Guardians, but were swiftly defeated by their creators. Those that survived went into hiding.[9] For other uses of Oa and oa, see OA. Oa is a fictional planet located at the center of the DC Comics Universe. ...


The latter-day Manhunters attempted to disgrace the Guardians with Mark Shaw at their side. They were opposed by the JLA, especially by League member Green Lantern (Hal Jordan). Shaw realized that he had been duped by the Manhunters and turned on them, killing the Grand Master, who was revealed to be a robot. Mark Shaw quickly returned as a new hero called the Privateer, but it was soon revealed that he was also working as a villain called the Star-Tsar, in league with the Key. The Red Tornado discovered this deception and Shaw went to prison.[10] The Key is a DC Comics supervillain with several major incarnations. ... Red Tornado is a fictional superhero in the DC Universe. ...


While in the midst of serving his sentence, Shaw was offered the chance to accompany the Suicide Squad on a mission as the Privateer, and was released when the mission was completed.[11] In the wake of the Millennium crisis, he donned a new costume to distance himself from the Manhunter cult, and had his own adventures. Shaw now hunted costumed criminals for the bounty. He kept insisting that he was just operating for the money, but he kept finding himself doing the right thing. Suicide Squad is a name for a number of fictional organizations created for and owned by DC Comics. ... Millennium was a 8-part comic book event miniseries/crossover published by DC Comics. ...


During this time, he and his family were threatened by two shape-shifters named Dumas. Shaw killed the first Dumas and his battle with the second led him to give up the Manhunter identity at the end of his series. It was later revealed that Mark Shaw was actually himself Dumas and much of his history was actually the result of mental programming by the US Government.[12] Shaw joined the Shadow Fighters in order to battle the supervillan Eclipso. It was assumed that Mark Shaw was killed opposing Eclipso alongside his other team members in the Shadow Fighters. This was soon revealed not to be the case.[13] The Shadow Fighters were a group of superpowered and non-superpowered DC Comics characters brought together, under the supervision of Amanda Waller, for the sole purpose of battling Eclipso in the Eclipso comic series. ... Eclipso is a fictional character, a villain in the DC Comics Universe. ... Eclipso is a fictional character, a villain in the DC Comics Universe. ...

Spinning out of DC's 1994 event miniseries Zero Hour was a new Manhunter title (by Steven Grant and Vince Giarrano), unrelated to any of the previous Manhunters. Chase Lawler was a musician who summoned the Wild Huntsman to save himself and his girlfriend from harm. He did not understand the commitment he was making to the Wild Huntsman and found himself compelled to hunt the lonely. He tried to resist the urge by hunting villains, with limited success.

Lawler suffered a heart attack and Mark Shaw attempted to resuscitate him.[15] This transferred the bond with the Wild Huntsman and the compulsion to hunt to Shaw. It was revealed that Lawler had undergone the same type of experimentation as Mark Shaw and that the Wild Huntsman was actually an illusion created as a side effect of the mental programming.[16] Lawler was drugged and then murdered by Shaw, who had fallen back into his Dumas persona.[17]

Manhunter was initially slated to be cancelled due to low sales.

It was revealed at the 2007 New York Comic-Con by Dan DiDio that the series had been given a second reprieve from cancellation.[1],[2] The series was meant to be restarted with #31 in July 2007, but has been put on hold until several issues have been written and drawn before the title resumes publication.[citation needed]
