Kate Spencer was a criminal prosecutor in Los Angeles until she found herself trying to convinct the villainous Copperhead for crimes he had clearly committed. The failures of the court system allowed Copperhead to walk free, which is when the enraged Kate Spencer decided to take the law into her own hands.
As Manhunter, Kate wields several pieces of superhero/villain tech that she stole from the court’s criminal property lockers. She is a ruthless vigilante, and over her short career she has killed numerous villains. Most recently Manhunter has joined the Birds of Prey, and is slowly integrating herself into the larger superhero community. Unfortunately, her willingness to kill has already put her at odds with many of her peers, including the Justice League.
Kate Spencer is a complex character, and often struggles to balance her superheroics with a career and raising her son. For years Manhunter has been one of the best series DC continues to publish, and I’m very excited to see what’s in store for our heroine.
So go buy it! Actually — buy two, since this book could really use the sales.
