The Manhunter was a clone of the original Manhunter, Paul Kirk created by the criminal organization known as the Council as one of their foot soldiers. He rebelled against his programming and left their service before Kirk and his allies destroyed the Council, and somehow became aware of Darkseid's plans for Earth. The Manhunter clone infiltrated Darkseid's operation and gathered together the Secret Society of Super-Villains intending to use them against Darkseid. He succeeded in stopping Darkseid but was killed in the process.

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-One era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985–86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and should be considered apocryphal.
