The Council was a mysterious criminal organization that employed the technology of cloning to create foot soldiers. They created several clones of the deceased superhero known as Manhunter. This proves to be their undoing, when one clone turns against them. This clone teams up with Batman to take down the Council, but he is killed in the process.
- The Council made their first appearance in Detective Comics # 439 (March 1974)
- This image is the concept art for Kenner's Manhunter action figure that was to be part of the Super Powers Collection. The action figure was never produced, because the line was canceled after the third wave.
- This is conjecture based upon DC Comics.
