I Believe I Can Fly: A Tribute To The Enduing Legacy Of Hawkman

Rob Liefeld

On this date in 1940, All-American Publications published Flash Comics #1, which featured the first appearance of the titular hero The Flash, but also featured the very first appearance of the winged warrior Hawkman in a story by Gardner Fox and Dennis Neville.

Throughout the years, Hawkman has become a sometimes confusing aspect of the DC Universe, but there’s a reason he has endured for the better part of a century; there's something compelling about him that keeps readers and creators coming back to the character.

But how did Hawkman get this way? What single decision led to decades of confusion, and how can it be fixed? There may be a solution, but if we’re going to address the Hawkman problem, first we need to understand it.

Time After Time: The Best Hawkgirl and Hawkman Cosplay


Throughout the comics and comics-inspired media, Hawkgirl and Hawkman have seen fluctuating levels of action and fandom, though Hawkgirl has gained prominence from her time as a member of the Justice League on the eponymous animated series and as Hawkwoman in The CW's Legends of Tomorrow. This has translated to some wonderful interpretations on the cosplay scene as well. (But hey, Hawkman has a few stalwart fans representing him as well!)

Each cosplayer takes it upon themselves to craft these warriors and bring them to life in interesting and creative ways, playing their parts as the reincarnated avian duo of justice. These are the best Hawkgirl and Hawkman cosplays!

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve amassed our own super gallery featuring cosplayers portraying members of the Justice League throughout the years.

DC Announces ‘Hawkman/Adam Strange: Out Of Time’ from Andreyko & Lopresti

Hawkman/Adam Strange: Out Of Time

As far as DC's space-faring heroes go, Hawkman and Adam Strange have had a bit of a rocky relationship over the years. Despite both being nominally good guys and occasional Justice Leaguers, their major interaction in the past has resulted from Thanagar and Rann, their respective planets, going to war with each other --- presumably over the fact that Rann's capital is called "Ranagar," and that's way too confusing.

Now, though, there's something new on the horizon. Today, DC announced Hawkman/Adam Strange: Out Of Time, a new series set to kick off in October from writer Marc Andreyko and artist Aaron Lopresti, where the two heroes team up --- and this time, it's to stop an interplanetary war form breaking out.

Superhero Color Theory, Part IV: The Outliers


What does your favourite superheroes' colors tell the audience about their personalities? Using the same color theory people use to group-think a corporate logo, or paint their room, we've been exploring what it means to superhero comics.

Last time we mentioned that The Invisible Woman's blue and white is wise, and elemental, but what does invisible mean as a color? The Wasp's one constant through her many costume changes has been her transparent, flighty wings. And while Kitty Pryde, who also can't seem to settle on a costumes (or a name), isn't transparent as a color, she does actually pass through things.
