Synopsis for "The Shadow War of Hawkman"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • This limited series is no longer part of canon continuity. In the modern canon (as per Hawkworld (Volume 2)), Katar and Shayera did not come to Earth until the early 1990s .
  • This issue includes a brief re-telling of Hawkman and Hawkwoman's origin.
  • Flashback cameo appearances of Batman, Byth Rok, Hyathis and Superman.
  • The Absorbascon is a Thanagarian device that allows the user to tap into the alpha waves of other people – in effect, reading their mind. This is how Katar and Shayera learned Earth's language and customs.
  • Hawkman and Hawkwoman now reside in the house formerly owned by George Emmett.
  • Reference is made to the Equalizer Plague of Thanagar – an event that robbed all Thanagarians of their individuality and made them of equal intellect, appearance and spirituality. Although the Thanagarians eventually break through the confines of the plague, it ramifications set the stage for the Shadow War.
  • The identities of the Thanagarian agents are revealed in greater detail throughout the course of the series. None of them are provided with actual names in this issue.


  • No trivia.
