Hawkwoman Vs. The Vulture


I was surprised how well The Vulture worked as a villain in Spider-Man: Homecoming.  I always figured that when he finally made it into a Spidey flick, he would be a secondary villain, but the writer's gave him a great hook and it really worked.  His design looked great as well, and Michael Keaton was perfect in the role as enough time has passed that audiences don't automatically think of Batman when he he appears.  I even liked the plot twist with who his family was, which I didn't see coming.  It just goes to show that any character can shine on the big screen, given the right care.

The Vulture first went after Nth Metal in STF #741...

Looks like one of the Dark Metal Bats made it past the Source Wall to Earth-STF. Sort of the way Hank McCoy's dysfunctional doppleganger paved the way for Genosha's mutaphobic atrocities on Earth-616.

Nice team pairing.

BEAUT-IFUL Cover Ross. Damn, but they do look so shiny!

It's been a while since you've posted something that looks so much like a unit piece, Ross, and this is one of your best. It looks like something that the Big Two might actually do in a major company crossover event -- even including the story. I definitely could see the Vulture's theft of Nth Metal, and his incorporation of it into his suit, as an element in a much larger tale (probably involving someone hugely powerful like Darkseid, Thanos, or the Anti-Monitor).

When do we get to see the team up of Space Cabbie and US 1?

So, now we know why Adrian went after Katar. But, does Kendra have what it takes to get the Nth Metal back before the Dark Multiverse rears its ugly Bat-heads once again?

Great pairing, as always, Ross.

I stopped reading new comics when James Robinson's Starman series ended. Is that really what those characters look like now? I have to admit, it's a better look for the Vulture, and the battle armor makes a lot more sense than the outfit that Hawkgirl -- Oops, I mean Hawkwoman -- used to wear.

Glenn Host said...

No Hawkgirl (I assume since it appears to be based on Earth 2 Hawkgirl based on name) is not wearing that armor but the midriff bare outfit.

@GH: unless her skin is glowing a very darkish-green, that's no bare midriff she's sporting in Ross' version.

@Anonymous: Hawkgirl and Hawkwoman are two different (albeit related) characters. IIRC: Hawkgirl hangs out with Hawkman, while Hawkwoman is independent (and more militaristic).

Cary Comic said...

@2nd Anonymous: you mean, "Flashpoint" split the character up again? A Thanagarian expatriate as one and an Earth-born teenage reincarnation as the other?*

*Similar to redheaded Kathy "Batwoman" Kane and Cassandra "Batgirl" Cain?

@Carycomic: sounds about right.
