It's too bad the because of the wonky continuity we will never see The Angel in a true X-Men: First Class movie with the original team. I figured we would have to wait for an inevitable reboot, but considering the success of the last X-movie installment that may be a long way off. Hawkman has gone quite a revamping looks-wise in the New DCU - I assume that like most of the costume changes DC did it was with an eye towards making live action adaptations easier. The new helmet, like the old one, looks cool but not every artist can depict it effectively. I do think it might translate better to live action, but I would still miss the classic look.
