The Hawkgirl character appeared in two animated series: Justice League (2001-2004) and Justice league Unlimited (2004-2006). Someone put together a video showing a number of fight scenes involving Hawkgirl. The character was named Shiera Hall; however, she was more of a hybrid between Shiera, with her red hair and green eyes, and Kendra Saunders, the darker skinned Latina from San Antonio Texas. The character carries … Continue reading Hawkgirl Animated Fight Scenes
This month, Hawkgirl turns twenty years old. Of course, Hawkgirl has been around since the 1940s. Yet by 1999, over the course of 60 years, there had been three variations of Hawkgirl. (That is not counting any pretenders.) The first one was Shiera Hall and she made her debut in Flash Comics #1 (January 1940). The second Hawkgirl, the one from the silver age, was … Continue reading Hawkgirl at 20
This is about a recently published comic book – Justice League (vol. 5) Annual #1. Spoiler-alert! In this issue, something mind-blowingly weird happens to Hawkgirl. Since before the current JL series, there has been something different about her. For a year now, going back to Dark Nights: Metal #4 (February 2018), when Kendra took a bite out of the astral brain of the Anti-Monitor and … Continue reading Hawkgirl Died for Your Sins
By 1977, the Super Friends series had been in re-runs for three years. That year the show was revived and was given a new title: “The All-New Super Friends Hour“. In all, there were sixteen episodes that ran from September to December of ’77. Hawkman and Hawkgirl appeared in two episodes of season two. The first appearance was in episode #3. The pinioned pair appeared … Continue reading Another Rare-bird Sighting
It is a new Saturday morning ritual of mine to watch episodes of the Seventies cartoon series Super Friends on the DC Universe streaming service. I watch at least one episode from the Saturday morning cartoon staple that ran for 9 seasons from 1973 to 1982. This morning, I made an interesting discovery while watching episode #4 of the fifth season. This episode first ran … Continue reading Super Friends Forever
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 … Continue reading Hawkgirl’s Little Secret
Guess who’s on the cover of Justice League #7 coming in September? Suddenly she’s the most popular girl in school. Artist: Cheung Continue reading Guess who’s on the cover?
Who is Crying on the Cover of JLA #80? – I got all excited this morning because I thought I had discovered a “missing” Hawkgirl cover from the 1960’s. I say “missing” as in missing from my very thorough list of every cover that either Hawkgirl or her alter ego has appeared on. This is that list that I meticulously researched for nearly a year … Continue reading Who is Crying on the Cover of JLA #80?
There is something different about Hawkgirl. The role of the character still belongs to Kendra Saunders, but Kendra has changed in very special way… she has become a meta-human. The clues were there… For example, what did the Joker say to Duke Thomas in Darks Days: The Casting #1 (2017)? He told him that the cause of meta-humans was their having Nth metal in their … Continue reading There is Something Different About Hawkgirl
It has been 7 years since Hawkgirl has appeared on the cover of a main continuity comic book. In this newly formed, post-Dark Nights: Metal “Justice League”, Kendra “Hawkgirl” Saunders graces the cover of Justice League vol. 3 #1 (June 2018). (See “The Justice League Canon“). The description reads… “THE TOTALITY” part one! A brand-new era begins here! Comics legends Scott Snyder and Jim Cheung … Continue reading The Return of Hawkgirl (for real)
According to more than one article I have seen, Warner Bros. might be working on Hawkman & Hawkgirl movie. However, nothing is confirmed and it just a rumor at this time. What is not a rumor and is a certainty is that a Hawkman comic book series will have its debut this Summer. I have made a list of top ten items that I think … Continue reading The Essential Hawkman
Fandom’s DC database (http://dc.wikia.com) is a great source of information, however, I am not a fan of the way in which they sectionalize Character articles based on continuity and not under the big tent of the character itself. Almost all DC Comic’s characters have undergone changes of some sort over time and probably no one more than the Hawkgirl character. She has been around longer … Continue reading Kendra Saunders Redefined
