To this day, I still can’t believe that Arrow is a show on The CW! Normally, programs on that channel are much more focused on relationships among teens and post-teens. Arrow, on the other hand, has its share of dialogue, but the action and the stories keep me gripped from episode to episode. This week, Barry Allen appears, and I can’t wait to see how they handle this hero-to-be.
Then, too, Netflix is bringing Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist to live-action drama. And the Marvel movies are doing well at the box office.
As the New 52 soldiers on, many of the books in the first wave have gone away, changed beyond recognition, or had more creators’ hands in them than the cast of The Muppet Show. Savage Hawkman has yet to really thrill me, will this issue be the one that turns the tide? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
It’s kind of sad that the adult film industry can crank out superhero movies faster than the big H’wood studios. Then again, these are porn parodies, so how good can they be? Exquisite Films has been cranking out the Extreme Comixxx parodies for a couple of years now, and the company’s latest offering features Hawkman, Hawkgirl, and Black Canary.
I’ve had a love-hate relationship with Hawkman over the years, enjoying his appearances in JSA, the Tim Truman revamp and a few JLA cameos, but truly loathing the endless cycle of retcons and revamping and back-story updates. A character who is more important for his historical significance than his actual comics appearances (much like Wonder Woman, only vastly more so), Hawkman has been kind of bland for my tastes, and I can’t remember having read the previous issues of this particular run, even though I KNOW I have. (I reviewed at least one of them, I’m certain.) Will the new Hawkman’s Zero Month appearance grab me? Your Major Spoilers review awaits.
Or – “My Power Infests All Times, All Galaxies, All Dimensions…”
The Savage Hawkman of Thanagar! Carter Hall, aka Katar Hol, has had more origins than many heroes have actual published issues. This latest version has found that the Nth Metal that once made up his wings has now infused his body, allowing him to create armor and weapons to fight evil. But what good is a mace against an intangible ghost?
The New 52 has given us a new look at characters from throughout DC’s long history, and Hawkman goes all the way back to the earliest days of the DCU. Does this fresh take on Hawkman fly like an eagle, or is it a turkey, set to crash and burn?
It’s not going to be hard for DC Comics to release 52 new number one issues in September when the company relaunches its entire superhero line. In fact, DC just released the first batch of number one titles that will be hitting the stands come Relaunch Day.
Part INDIANA JONES/DA VINCI CODE, part GHOST tentpole about the fictional superhero that appears in D.C. Comic books. He used archaic weaponry and large, artificial wings attached to a harness made of the Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with a partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl or Hawkwoman in his fight against supervillains. Based on the DC comic.
Aaaaannnndddd pretty much, that is it. Nothing else other than that. Nada. Zilch. Zippo.
Who says comic book geeks have to be in the 30s?Â If you have a little tyke you’re trying to convert to the dark side, one sure fire way to get him (or her) to pick up and play with those DC Super Friends again, is to give them the latest addition to the line – Hawkman.
This 6″ scale, chunky figure is fully-articulated (including articulated wings) and arrives ready for battle in his new brown war deco and Hawk Jet.
Yes, it is certainly cool, but Mattel doesn’t say if Hawkman comes with his own Nth Metal mace for kicking Lex Luthor’s butt.
