Background in other media

  • Hawkman was first imagined in 1940 as egyptologist Carter Hall. In the Silver Age, he was reimagined as a Thanagarian law enforcement officer named Katar Hol; Young Justice's Hawkman is based on the latter version.
  • Though Hawkman has had six appearances in animation, he was only identified as the Thanagarian Katar Hol thrice: in Hanna-Barbara's Super Friends, in Filmation's Superman/Aquaman Hour of Adventure, and in the last season of The Batman.
