It was a fun approach

The Silver Age Hawkgirl
Was a police officer from Thanagar

So naturally
The show made her
Hall Monitor

Well, the offer is always on the table, Mr. T. :superman_hv_4:

Here’s something neat you might like:

I know diddly about Turok beyond its most basic plot, but if memory serves, there was a Turok video game in the '90s and Playmates produced toys for it (one of which is above).

I remember you mentioning this before, and I’m sorry that happened.

Say, do you have Hawkgirl Watch-Alongs planned? The DC Animation Club could always assist/host/co-host if you want.

I bought
Dell Comics
With Turok
Because I loved dinosaurs

Way before my first DC

Which was
Detective Comics 255
1958

Then

1960 Brave and the Bold 30. Best of the early Justice League of America stories and Last tryout of the JLA before receiving their own book

And I was hooked

Members sometimes wonder
About my name here

There is a Turok Son of Stone movie!

Here is trailer

Yes, that is the first generation of dc super hero girls, it was not comic acurete or that complex but it was a fun take on dc, i love the idea of super hero high and the reboot, had the main charecters in a normal high school and, that desision, took away the charm of the franchise!

You know…

taps his chin in thought as he leans to look outside

…there is an episode of Super Friends on HBO Max that features Hawkgirl, and I’ve been meaning to watch it for quite some time, now.

I can’t remember the episode (its in my HM list, so I’ll post it later, and I’m too burned-out from work to do another Google search, right now), but that could be good, and give folks a nice vintage-themed representation of Hawkgirl in animation.

Oh! There’s also an episode of JLU with Vixen, Shayera, John and SG. “Dark Souls”, I think? From season two, if memory serves.

Anyway! We can hash out the deets later, but if you’re interested in doing a WAL for Hawkgirl, the DC Animation Club will absolutely be onboard to assist. :superman_hv_4:

It was interesting to see

Ms Martian and Starfre as friends

And had interesting takes on

Poison Ivy
Harley Quinn

I prefer that version of Bumblebee also

It even had Raven!

Definitely a good idea to stretch Shay’s episodes out, as she was a fixture of many in various ways.

Say…what about a Women’s History Month-based WAL of Starcrossed?

You know what, DM me and we can chit-chat about this more. :slight_smile:

The thing that sticks out for me about the Golden and Silver Age versions of Hawkgirl is that they never feel like a sidekick to me. Over the last few years, I’ve read the Silver Age stories on DCUI and the stories that involve Hawkgirl she is presented as a full partner, every bit as capable as Hackman.

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
