Manhunter (01 - Dan Richards)
Real Name: Donald Richards
Search for 'Manhunter (01 - Dan Richards)' on Amazon


Bio:
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.

Notes:
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.

First Appearance: Police Comics (1941) #8
