Hawkgirl now cancelled

Hawkgirl joins the recent Firestorm on the cancellation heap with issue #66. Personally, I wonder if what led to this was that, similar to Firestorm, they forcibly replaced one protagonist with another, or as in the case of the Hawks, they replaced the male lead with the female lead.

Much as I find the idea of putting the lady in the lead intriguing, the way it was done here, to turn Hawkman into Hawkgirl was still otherwise arbitrary and done solely as change for the sake of change. But also damaging was what Identity Crisis did to make Carter Hall look like a cad, which they seem to have used as an excuse for replacing him with Kendra Saunders and even changing the series' name from male to female.

It was a series that had some great potential, if you ask me, but in the end, they ultimately squandered it all.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
