Hawkman has a special connection to new heroes like Damage and Sideways.
SPOILERS ahead. You’ve been warned.
Back in June, Scott Snyder told me before he ever thought up Dark Nights: Metal he wanted to write a Hawkman series. Who would have thought this event series would actually be the start of rebooting the character? Back in December Jeff Lemire got to take a shot at the character, although he’s a heck of a lot different in Metal:
Carter Page has succumbed to the Dark Multiverse! With a little hope, though, everything changes (Read Dark Nights: Metal #6 to find out how) for Hawkman.
It appears when Robert Venditti takes over the new Hawkman series in June it’ll be due to the effects of Dark Nights: Metal. The character is already rife with powers, but it appears he’ll be leaving a lasting impression on the DC Universe in the way of revealing who the “New Age of Heroes” characters are.
Way to be a narc, Hawkman!
