Hawkman is the alias of several of fictional superheroes from DC Comics created by writer Gardner Fox and artist Dennis Neville; the original Hawkman first appeared in Flash Comics #1, published by All-American Publications in 1940. Though his origins vary, from human archaeologist Carter Hall, the reincarnation of the ancient Egyptian prince Khufu – or as alien police officer Katar Hol from the planet Thanagar, he is consistently characterized by the use of archaic weaponry, and by large, artificial wings, attached to a harness made from the special anti-gravity Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with his work partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl/Hawkwoman.
