Hawkman | Comics

Archaeologist Carter Hall discovered that he is the reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian prince named Khufu, who had found a Thanagarian alien spacecraft containing the “Nth Metal” that negated gravity and with the power of flight, the adventurer became the hero, Hawkman.

The mysterious metal also had transformed his soul, causing him to re-born many times over the centuries. The alien ship was brought to the Temple of Horus at Erdu and the “Nth Metal” was forged to create a scarab for Khufu to fly, a battle knife and the Claw of Horus.

After the evil priest Hath-Set killed both Khufu and his lover Chay-Ara, his spirit re-spawned Brian Kent, Koenrad Von Grimm, Captain John Smith, Hannibal Hawkes, Detective James Wright and eventually as Carter Hall in 1940.

He soon met the reincarnation of his love as Shiera Sanders, who quickly assumed the role of Hawkgirl to fight for justice alongside him. Hawkman joined the JSA with The Atom, The Flash, Green Lantern, Sandman and Spectre. He was involved throughout “Crisis on Infinite Earths”. During the events of “Zero Hour”, Hawkman died in battle and a Thanagarian named Katar Hol took his place.

He was resurrected to oppose Onimar Synn and then he was drafted into the “Rann/Thanagar War”, later reunited with Hawkgirl, fatally battled Black Adam (in Black Adam – The Dark Age) after “World War III” and witnessed the “Blackest Night” and in wake of the “Brightest Day”, he faced the evil Hath-Set and Queen Khea to rescue a captured Hawkgirl.
