    1. Hawkman has a mace.
    2. Angel has never had significant head protection.
    Angel’s getting his head smashed in.

    I voted Hawkman despite being a much bigger Angel fan. However, the picture shows young boyish Angel, who Hawkman would destroy, unless Angel was rockin the ol’ Bazooka he carried in the old days. Or if he was Archangel. He was deadly. As a matter of fact I’m wishing I voted the other way.

    In a strict Angel vs Hawkman fight, Hawkman has the decisive advantages of age, physique and weaponry.
    The fight would be much closer with Archangel becasue Archangel would have the distinct advantage in a ranged battle.
    This fight goes to Hawkman.

    I went with Hawkman as well. Base “Angel” has never seemed like a threat to me, and Hawkman has martial prowess (either Thanagar or Egyptian version) and a touch of the crazy at times.

    Though if this was Archangel vs. Hawkman I’d change my vote in a heartbeat.

    In later years Angel could change his form from normal to Archangel at will. Hawkman wouldn’t stand a chance.

      Hawkman would still clean the clock of Archangel.

    As much as I like Warren Worthington III, I think Hawkman would emerge victorious in most of his various incarnations. I personally like the Angel/Archangel character much better, but realistically I don’t think he’d be able to defeat Hawkman on his own.

    I don’t recall classic Angel doing much other than picking people up and dropping them. I don’t think that would work against Hawkman.

    Round 1: Egyptologist with a mace VS Teenager with wings — Hawkman wins.
    Round 2: Thanagarian space cop VS Apocalyptic Horseman Death — Angel wins.
    Round 3: Psychopath who might believe he’s a space cop VS Amnesiac who does believes he’s an Angel — Hawkman wins.

    So I had to go with Hawkman no matter how mush I prefer Angel.

    He may not win but Archangel(when Angel was blue) was one of my favorite heroes back in the day so Go Angel.

    I don’t know much about Angel, not being an X-Men fan, other than him not wanting to be a mutant (X-Men movie) but I think Hawkman would still win, especially the Thanagarian Hawkman. His strength makes him a formidable opponent to many of the Justice League let alone many opponents.

    I’ve never liked Angel, I’ve never seen him do anything useful and his powers are laaaame… Hawkman may not be my favorite character, but he can kick Warren’s butt anytime.

    Archangel for the win (Dance of Death), but is that old or new Hawkman (Nth’ed up version)?
    Thing is, about DC (Defective Comics) is that powers change depending on who writes it. That’s why you have a “CRISIS/52” every decade or so. Sloppy editing. Thanagar could be replaced by Hawklantis or Nthtopia.
