Last night I waited until past midnight for the latest and last issue in the DC Comics “Dark Night Metal” series to drop at Comixology. It was issue #6.
There was a lot of stuff going on within this Multiverse-changing storyline, but there was one thing that I was most interested in and that was the future of Kendra “Hawkgirl” Saunders.
One thing that we already knew was further confirmed and that was Hawkgirl (and Martian Manhunter) are becoming member(s) of the Justice League.
This is not the first time that Hawkgirl has been a member of the Justice League. Forty years ago, Hawkgirl became a member 13 years after her husband, Hawkman, was invited to join.
In 1977, this was the Silver Age, Thanagarian, Shayera Hol, Hawkgirl. This same Hawkgirl, now post-Crisis in the late 1980s, was briefly a member of Justice League International until she and Carter left to return to their home planet of Thanagar.
In 2000’s, Kendra “Hawkgirl” Saunders was a member of JSA and briefly in the JLA (2002/3). Then from 2006 to 2009, she was in Justice League of America vol. 2.
At any rate, she is now a member of the new Post-Metal Justice League.
Also, back in September, right after Metal got started, I wrote a post titled “Metal: Watch The Color of Kendra’s Eyes“, I which I discussed how to tell when Kendra is actually Shiera. It is Green=Kendra and Brown=Shiera.
When Kendra first appeared at the start of Metal, her eyes were green.
Yet in issue #6 (March 28, 2018), her eyes are now brown…
