Haunt | Comics

Kurt Kilgore was an skillful special agent for The Agency where he worked as a covert operative, until he was deployed in a special operation to extract Doctor Shillinger, a scientist working on a top secret assignment. But Kurt killed him and he was killed in a plot by a crime lord named Mr. Hurg, with help from a secret betrayer in the Agency.

Kurt also had a brother named Daniel Kilgore, who is a priest but also regularly visits prostitutes and they both have a strained relationship between them. Daniel hated Kurt because he thinks his former love Amanda cheated on him by marrying Kurt. After Kurt's death, Daniel starts sensing his brothers presence as a ghost who kept him warned about possible killing attempts on his widow Amanda which he brushed off completely.

Soon, by a series of incidental events, Kurt's spirit is merged with Daniel and they became the uncanny ectoplasmic entity called as The Haunt. With his newly discovered amazing abilities, Haunt successfully defends Amanda from the attackers.

Daniel is soon summoned by the Agency where he met Director Beth Tosh and a former Agency operative Mirage, whom had a romantic relation with Kurt. Daniel is then recruited as an agent for the Agency and Kurt's unknown enemy Mr. Hurg hires an assassin called Cobra to destroy the Haunt. Daniel faces all the challenges of his all-new life filled with adventures and beyond while Kurt's ghost tries to make amends with his brother.
