One of the best things to come out of the animated Justice League series was their treatment of Hawkgirl. She was given more depth and personality than she ever had in the comics and I was really hoping that DC would give her a higher profile as a result. Instead, quite the opposite has happened. Shayera Hol was killed off (more than once) in the comics, and just when she was revived again, the New 52 came along and she is gone again. Sure, there is a Hawkgirl in Earth-2, but it isn't Shayera. I miss the real deal with her flowing red locks and the coolest helmet design in comics, hopefully she will show up soon. At least She-Hulk is getting some attention again as a cast member of FF, a place she can shine without dealing the alternate She-Hulks that Marvel has introduced in the past few years.
