DC History Club March 2022 Hawkgirl

You’re right

Looking at some old
Fox and Kubert Silver Age Hawkman

There are scenes
Where Hawkgirl is emotional

She gets jealous

She is nervous and messes up as a Rookie Cop partnered with the legendary Katar Hol

She gets homesick for Thanagar

To me
That makes her relatable

Not less heroic

I won’t try to get off-topic, Fox created both Hawkgirl and Black Canary. Both were also originally meant to be sidekicks to some degree. Granted in the case of Black Canary, she became more popular than Johnny Thunder. Still, strong women were something that Gardner Fox seemed to have a knack for, even though the lens of a person in 2022 might not agree with all of the portrayals of these characters. I have read very little of the 60s Hawkman series, not enough to fully comment on it but I just dragged out my copy of Hawkman Archives vol 2 to see the artwork.

Not off topic at all

I remember
In the 1960s
An Earth 2
Black Canary
Starman
Team up
That was
Done by
Gardner Fox

That was good
And respectful
Of both Characters

Of course
Later writers
Had them in an affair
With both married

That’s what I get for not grabbing my copy of that Black Canary book from my shelf and using my not-so-great memory.

I love Grudge Match!

Not only because it was an all-around female-centric episode (and the more of those, the merrier), but because of Roulette.

Grudge Match was my introduction to her, and it made me seek her out in the comics.

I don’t remember the issue # offhand (and its wicked-early, so I’m not yet awake enough to noodle about in our library for the thing), but there’s an issue of JSA that features Roulette on the cover and its a good cover, ya dig? :sunglasses:

Also, I’m generally not romantically interested in women with highly prominent tattoos (I’m certainly very open to exceptions of course, it just depends on what their ink is like), but Roulette rocks her wraparound snake tat very well.

Always enjoy your posts.

THAT Shayera will be the major focus in Week Four

She is my favorite Hawkgirl.

I bought the first appearance of the
Silver Age
Hawkman and Hawkgirl
In Brave and Bold
When I was a kid

The Joe Kubert Art
Intrigued me

The Hawks looked
Impressive
Bizarre
Alien
In their costumes

But looked like
Regular people
In their space suits and Earth clothing

They were

Adults
Smart
Heroic
Athletic
Great Teammates
Married

All the things
I wanted to be
When I grew up.

I accomplished only smart
