The Kirk DePaul wiki last edited by FrogNWN on 02/01/15 01:35AM View full history


This page is for the 7th Manhunter, Kirk Depaul.


Kirk DePaul was one of the many clones, and the last surviving, of Paul Kirk, Manhunter. He later joined the heroes for hire group The Power Company and took the mantle of his predecessor with an altered costume.


Kurt Busiek created Kirk DePaul out of a desire to use the Manhunter character in his Power Company series but created his own version so not to step on the toes of work done by previous Manhunter creators Archie Goodwin and Walt Simonson. He was first drawn by Tom Grummett.
