Manhunter (II). Daniel Richards is a rookie cop who gets frustrated at his (and the police's) inability to bring in the real crooks. So every night he puts on a disguise and with his dog Thor fights criminals and evildoers. He has no special powers, however. His enemies include ordinary criminals, Germans, the Nazi agent the Cobra, Dr. Sims (who has created telepathic brains-in-a-jar), the Ghostmaster, the whip-wielding female crime boss Red Kate, and the Spine-Snapper and his trained ape.
