Dan Richards was a below-average candidate at the Police Academy. He graduated by the skin of his teeth. However, when his girlfriend's brother, Jim, was framed for a murder he didn't commit, Richards assumed the identity of Manhunter to track down the killer. He continued wearing the costume long after that case was closed.
This character has rarely appeared in DC proper, and only in the late 20th/early 21st century, to date. The original Manhunter made his home at Quality Comics until 1950, after which DC bought the character, and promptly put one of their pre-existing characters, Paul Kirk, in the role.
Richards' dog, Thor, has appeared more often in DC titles than he has.
