confused

#1 Edited by Night Thrasher (3698 posts) - - Show Bio

I am a obvious marvel head, but i've been digging more and more into DC. I kinda get most of the origins and back stories but one eludes me: Hawkman. Can someone please explain the origins of Hawkman and Hawkgirl. I am so confused :s

How do his wings work I mean are they attached to him or is it like Smallville when he puts them on

His is one of the most confusing origins because of the retcons and such. I remember doing research and there was a website that actually had a good explanation of the various versions. The wings are not real he just puts them on.

I think the Thanagarian Hawkman (Katar Hol) could remove his wings, as they were artificial, while it doesn't look like Carter Hall Hawkman can..not an expert on Hawkman though.

I think he and the current Hawkgirl can.

Hawkman can remove his wings many of his incarnations simply wore the wings and armor. Some on the other hand had the wings in their bodies.
 
So Gambler is right and Wrong

BTW all the Hawkmen an Hawkwoman origins are based on the first two.
 
Bound by love but also cursed by it. They have been around for centuries they will live happily for a while but soon one of them eventually dies.

Once they've realized they love each other, they soon die.

Just love this picture. I am a bit confused as to why the wings are attached to them, as in their own ongoing series(before it was canceled) they put them on during missions and took them off afterwards. Maybe the artist thought it would look better? If that was the case he made a good call.

Well sry about resurecting an old thread but this was a dream wich would explain the lack of harness

hawkman the only origin more cofusing than a summers family reunion(i imagine itd be difficult to explain baby nathan being older than his grandfather)

His origins aren't that confusing. There's just been multiple incarnations and origins of the characters and this causes people to get mixed up and spread it out throughout the internet. I understand almost perfectly and it isn't confusing.

I assume that the reboot will introduce Carter Hall as the reincarnation of an Egyptian prince with alien armor. Hall is a human with wings attached by a harness made out of the Nth metal, which grants him flight. That's all you really need to know. You could always just read the book though ;)

@Kal'smahboi: He's supposed to be an alien archaeologist or something.
#24 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3561 posts) - - Show Bio
@batflasharrow96: Close. He's a human archeologist that finds alien stuff in Egypt. Unless that's what you meant...the internet can be ambiguous.
#25 Posted by batflasharrow96 (445 posts) - - Show Bio
@Kal'smahboi: Yeah. That's what I meant. Lol. Did you think I meant an archaeologist that is an alien?

@batflasharrow96: Lol sure did.
