Subj: Has Anyone Read The Archie Goodwin/Walter Simonson Manhunter? I Just Read It, And I Have Some Questions.

I am reading the Legends Of The Dark Knight Archie Goodwin Batman trade (I ordered it a long time ago, I just recently opened it and have been reading it.), and it also has the Manhunter storyline in there (I'm surprised that the whole thing was reprinted, instead of just the Batman parts.). Has anyone read this? I wanted to read it, because I heard what a classic it was, and it was good, but I was confused and certain things didn't seem to make sense to me. The main one being that Paul Kirk (The Manhunter.) is supposed to have super strength, but it seems very plot-based. For example, he gets shot at quite a few times, but shouldn't he be impervious to it? What was the deal with that helmet thing that Dr. Markos had on at the end? Why didn't anyone else seem to want to stop or question the Counsel? Why did Batman just like The Manhunter walk away after he just killed a guy right in front of him? And why did they choose to resurrect Kirk anyway? I also thought that his death could have been a little bit more poignant. But I am glad that I read this, and there were some good parts to this, as well as some poignant moments and some good characterization.
Thanks for the help.
