Human Target (02)
Real Name: Christopher Chance
Search for 'Human Target (02)' on Amazon

The Human Target is an American comic book character created by Len Wein and Carmine Infantino: a unique private detective and bodyguard named Christopher Chance who operates by impersonating his clients in order to eliminate threats to his principal, hence the idea of becoming a Human Target. Chance's early appearances came in back-up stories in Action Comics, a title much better known for featuring Superman tales published by DC Comics.

In later stories, a key element is that Chance is so good at impersonations that his own sense of personal identity is threatened in favor of his roles.

The character was adapted in a short lived television series starring Rick Springfield in 1992.
