Hawkgirl’s Little Secret

Here is an idea for new DC comics series: Hawkwoman (featuring Hawkgirl). In this series, Hawkman has not yet returned or is for some other reason separated from Kendra Saunders. Kendra is now in her early 30’s and she now goes by name Hawkwoman. Who, you may ask, is Hawkgirl? Her 18-year old daughter, Mia.

Back in 2003, there was a mini-series spin-off from JSA. It was titled JSA: All-Stars and it ran for eight issues from 2003 to 2004. In JSA: All Stars Vol. 1 #2, a mystery is revealed about Kendra “Hawkgirl” Saunders past.

On page one, we are reminded about how Kendra’s parents were murdered before she was a teen and how she got into all sorts of trouble before she wound-up committing suicide. Her grandfather, Speed Saunders, intervened and trained her to become Hawkgirl.

After fighting off some bad guys and Speed losing his airplane, we see Speed and granddaughter on their way to another event. This event has Hawkgirl a little scared.

She is scared because she is on her way to meet the daughter that she gave up for adoption when she was 16-years old. The little girl’s name is Mia and she appears to be about 4 or 5 years old.

Hawkgirl has her heart broken by the little girl’s total cuteness.

Later on, we see the little Mia picking up two feathers that were dropped by her mother. If this was not a foreshadowing event, I do not know what is.

One additional note regarding any other children of Hawkgirl besides Kendra’s daughter, Mia.

Shiera Hall had one child, a son named Hector Hall who became the 2nd Doctor Fate. He first appeared in All-Star Squadron #25 (September 1983) and he appeared to have died in JSA #80 (February 2006).

Hector married Lyta Trevor (aka Fury). She was the daughter of Wonder Woman and Col. Steve Trevor. Lyta was sent to the Dream Dimension and it was there that she gave birth to the grandson of Shiera, Daniel. She first appeared in Wonder Woman #300 (February 1983) and she appeared to have died JSA #80 (February 2006).

Daniel Hall is known as “Dream”, he first appeared in Sandman Vol 2 #22 (January 1991).
