Hawkman is the alias of several of fictional superheroes from DC Comics created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Dennis Neville; the original Hawkman first appeared in Flash Comics #1, published by All-American Publications in 1940. Though his origins vary, from human archaeologist Carter Hall, the reincarnation of the ancient Egyptian prince Khufu – or as alien police officer Katar Hol from the planet Thanagar, he is consistently characterized by the use of archaic weaponry, and by large, artificial wings, attached to a harness made from the special anti-gravity Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with his work partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman.

- Hawkman: Foolish? Kendra, I'm a guy who wears wings, an Edgar Rice Burroughs body harness, and a hawk's head. Everything I do is foolish. Don't follow my lead.
- It's a good name and it seems a shame to let it go to waste. We're hoping that fans will figure 'For God's sake, let's just call him Hawkman and get him in the Justice League as Hawkman,' and the editors will relent. We're hoping to start a campaign.
