In this picture, Atom was explaining to Hawkgirl a rule that the
Justice League had during the Silver Age, when only one
crimefighter with specific powers/skills/career could join. This
rule was done away with during the mid-70's, when Hawkgirl lobbied
against it, and she happily won, gaining a full-time membership
Also during the Silver Age, the Hawkduo did battle with a creature
called a Brontadon. Quite an astounding sight indeed, isn't it?
It's also a good idea to feature a picture of the guy who
headlined the very series where Hawkman made his Golden Age
appearances, the first official Flash, Jay Garrick!
A scene with the JLA passing their time playing cards, and
Shayera's doing very well, thanks to Elongated Man, who taught her
how to master the art!
The first panel comes from a miniseries about the Immortal Doctor
Fate. Next to that is a picture of Hath-Set drawn by Joe Kubert.
In a most amusing episode, Mavis Trent, one of the female
employees at the Midway City Museum discovers the secret storage
for their suits, and, most convieniently, Hawkgirl's costume as
well. And by dying her usually dark hair to be as much of a
redhead as Hawkgirl is, she could pass for her very easily! And I
must say, she is also...yum.
I think this stunning picture of Hawkwoman sans mask was drawn by
Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez. And then, in the other picture, we see
Hawkman post-rescue of Sheira from the menace of the first
Psycho-Pirate, Charles Halstead, in All-Star Comics #23
(The second Psycho-Pirate, Roger Hayden, debuted in Showcase
in the mid-1960s.)
It would be totally wrong to let this site go without some
pictures of the sexy Power Girl, so for starters, here's one from
a Showcase story circa 1978 where she fought an evil scientist and
his reptilian minion.
And here's one from the early years of Birds of Prey
too. Black Canary, of course,
usually doesn't resort to guns (and neither does Oracle), but then
again, it's possible that she's got other
using that baby up there.
The pic on the left shows Sheira searching for Carter to help him
out of a jam in a mining shaft. And the one on the right, I think
that's from the old Challenge
of the Superfriends
cartoon series that was broadcast
mostly during 1973-86.
Carter takes on an enemy plane, damaging the rotor and crippling
the vehicle in mid-air. The other shows him in combat with a chain
One of the first times Carter encountered Solomon Grundy in the
Golden Age, after 1st Green Lantern Alan Scott was the first to
clash with him.
Here's some drawings of Hawkman with his beaked mask, set during
the WW2 era, and the Blackhawks are referenced too. The latter,
oddly enough, may come from an Elseworlds story written by John
Byrne in 1999.
