MANHUNTER VOLUME 3 #3-4 (Kate Spencer version, 2004)


So by now, it’s clear that Manhunter is DC’s Punisher, recast as a woman with a family and a day job as a high-powered prosecutor. But if the villain-killing vigilante is a Punisher analog, at least in part, then she needs her Micro. In issues #3-4, she recruits a tech genius—who she put into witness protection—to design upgrades for her uniform and battlestaff. Eventually, she gets a complete hand-me-down set of crime-fighting equipment, all upgraded and maintained by her silent partner: Darkstar’s costume, Azrael’s gloves, Manhunter’s power staff…Sound familiar?

It’s because Punisher did the same thing, years later…
