Hawk & Dove and The Falcon



Now that the proposed Titans-related TV series has been scrapped, I am wondering if we will get another chance to see Hawk &Dove show up on one of the CW superhero shows.  I think the natural place would be on DC's Legends of Tomorrow.  Imaging the team piloting the Waverider to the swinging 60's... warring brothers Hank and Don Hall would be the perfect guest stars!

This is a pairing that I would have thought would have actually taken place in some of the more recent DC/Marvel team-ups. Perhaps it would have to be bolstered by the appearance of other characters, at least in the team-ups of about 20 years ago. In 2016 and beyond, this pairing might stand on its own without other characters. In any case, I think that this is a team-up that should be natural, and I think that if DC and Marvel ever do another crossover, they should consider this one. Heck, Ross, they should consult you and let you write the story.

Even though I don't particularly like Sam Wilson as Captain America I wouldn't mind seeing a follow up with the modern Hawk and Dove

Ross, is there any chance of your following up on the suggesting from back in January that Hank(Hawk) Hall and Carter (Hawkman) Hall meet at the Hall of Justice?

Ross said...

Since they are all DC that doesn't really fit the blog.

...the suggestion...

Point taken, but that's easily solved. There are plenty of non-DC hawky characters, Darkhawk, Hawkeye etc. Not to mention super villains like Graviton (Franklin Hall). Would the blog allow two heroes from one publisher against villains from another?

If nothing else, Ross, we'd finally find out if the Hank and Don are any relation to Carter Hall. I know they aren't in the comics! But, since when have live-action superheroes been 100% faithful to their source material? ;-)

Having Hawk and Dove guest star on a 1960s episode of Legends of Tomorrow is an inspired idea....

Apart from when the revival of Carter's son Hector as the new Dr Fate in 'JSA' had his personality (can't say 'soul', because supposedly -- despite somehow managing to survive death twice! -- he never had one...) implanted in a baby that was the child of Hank Hall (under Mordru's influence) and Dawn ["second Dove"] Granger...
So what would that make Hank and Carter, "co-fathers" or something along that line?

Ross, here's your next compilation - the Hawk Force! Hawkeye! Blackhawk! Darkhawk! Hawkman! Starhawk! Hawk and Dove! Firehawk!

Lord, there are a lot of hawks out there. Not many eagles or falcons, really. And how many chickens? HOW MANY CHICKENS? There's the real tragedy... :)

ELS, did you miss the team Operation: Hawk? If so just click on their label.

@ Simreeve: was that before or after Doc Fate got reincarnated as a hermaphroditic amalgam of a single mom and her infant son (during the first ten years of the True Bronze Age)?

After. I was away from comics c.1991-2013, but from what I've learned since my return (when I've been buying significantly more back-issues than 'New 52' stuff) the sequence goes_
mom & son;
return of Kent & Inza;
(Zero Hour)
'Fate' _ Jared whatsisname.
JSA revived, 1998: 'Fate' killed, Hector becomes the new Dr Fate
(Infinite Crisis: Hector and Nabu both killed)
'Helm of Fate' limited series
A great-nephew of Kent (who previously, AFAIK, hadn't been mentioned as having any siblings from whom this relative might be descended) becomes Dr Fate.
(Flashpoint)
On the "main" Earth, an Egyptian-American youth becomes the new Dr Fate; his mother turns out to have been a niece of Kent's and Kent himself has recently turned up again -- giving us two Dr Fates working as a team -- too.
On the post-FP version of Earth-2, also an Egyptian or Egyptian-American in the role; helmet destroyed, leaving him just some unreliable power of prophecy.

Then, I'm hoping the genealogical relationship between all three Halls gets explored both in the comics (on post-FP Earth Two) and during Season 3 of THE FLASH.
