The Manhunter is a superhero who has died, but has been cloned a number of times over the years. He was first active in the 1940s, when he first took on the role of a superhero.

History

Paul Kirk took on the superhero identity of Manhunter in the 1940s. While on a safari, he was killed by an elephant. But his body was placed in suspended animation by cryogenic freeze. He was later cloned by a criminal organization known as the Council. He was programmed to be one of their foot soldiers. As a clone, he was genetically enhanced and had a healing factor. He rebelled against his programming however and turned against the Council and teamed up with Batman to take them down. He was killed in the process. There was at least two other surviving clones however, one that infiltrated the Secret Society of Super Villains and another named Kirk DePaul.[1]
