I have an affinity for solo character comics series, and no solo series is complete without a good cast of supporting characters. In Marc Andreyko’s Manhunter, Damon Matthews serves as title character Kate Spencer’s co-counsel and fellow DA.
Damon has no superpowers of his own and does not engage in fighting crime, except through his work as a lawyer. However, he quickly pieces together that Kate has become Manhunter and he covers for her on many occasions.
Damon’s perhaps one of the most well-adjusted characters in comic books. He’s practical, down-to-earth, and out to everyone around him. He’s dating Todd Rice, the superhero Obsidian. And like he did with Kate, he quickly finds out about Todd being a superhero.
Todd and Damon
Manhunter #38 was not only the last issue of the series, but Damon’s last issue. #38 takes place in the future, where both Damon and Todd are still together and seen at Kate’s son college graduation party.
