The Golden Age was such a vibrant time, with so many great, and not-so-great, characters lost in the shuffle of superhero overload. One such short-llived but super stylish mystery man sprung from the able hands of Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Paul Kirk enjoyed his brief-but-bright run as the crimebustin'.Manhunter for a total of 19 issues, before being literally squeezed out.

According to Wikipedia:
.
"Beginning with Adventure Comics #73, Joe Simon and Jack Kirby established a new Manhunter.... Paul Kirk. The Simon/Kirby team left the feature after #80, November 1944, although Kirby wrote a few more scripts. The Paul Kirk Manhunter appeared in Adventure Comics until #92 in 1944, when wartime paper shortages caused DC to drop page counts and thus his strip. "

"
Kirk decides to become a crimefighter when his friend, Empire City police inspector Donovan, was murdered by the supervillain known as the Buzzard. He wore a superhero-like red costume with a blue mask. While he had no superpowers, he was an above average athlete and possessed superior tracking skills."

The model I've designed is patterned directly from one of Manhunter's early appearances.. It is still in beta form, so if you build it, please send a pic or two, and let me know if there are any glitches that need fixing..

Happy Modeling!!
The Professor.
