Background Information

Hawkaman Season6


The version of Hawkman used on the cartoon is probably the Silver Age version, who is a native of the parallel-universe Earth-One; Katar Hol who was from the planet of Thanagar. Katar's father was Paran Katar, renowned ornithologist and inventor. Among Paran Katar's various creations are the anti-gravity Nth Metal and their wings.

Katar soon became one of the most skilled of the Hawk-Police and Shayera Hol,After ten years of marriage, the pair were sent to Earth in 1959 (1965 in the Earth-1A universe) to capture the shape-shifting Thanagarian criminal Byth. Following this mission, they elected to remain on Earth to work with authorities in Midway City in the United States to learn human police methods. The two adopted covers as a pair of museum curators, Katar and Shayera Hol. He joined the newly formed Justice League of America in the early 1960's (the JLA was founded in late 68' in the Earth-1A universe).[9]

Alien Physiology: He has no special powers, but as a Thanagarian, Katar Hol possesses several gifts that are common to members of his race, but set him apart from normal humans. A Thanagarian's life span is significantly greater than that of a normal human being. In the prime of his life, Katar was actually older than many of Earth's senior citizens. A Thanagarian is also physically heartier than the average Earth human. They are stronger, with greater stamina and a greater resistance to pain. Thanagarians also possess enhanced senses.






  • Without these wings made of Nth metal, Hawkman could not fly.
  • The Nth Metal also grants Hawkman superhuman endurance and eyesight, and allows him to heal at incredible speed.

Appearances in Other Media

HawkmanDCAU Hawkman Hawkman is the alter ego of Carter Hall, a modern hero modeled after an ancient Thanagarian. Carter Hall was originally Joseph Gardner, an archaeologist who, whilst a dig in Egypt, came upon an ancient Thanagarian tomb. There, he found an Asbsorbacron, which gave him recollections of the life of Katar Hol, a Thanagarian law officer who lived ca. 1600 B.C.. Gardner was convinced that he was the reincarnation of Katar Hol and Shayera Hol was the reincarnation of Katar Hol's wife, Chay-Ara Hol. In the three years that followed his discovery, Joseph Gardner had his name legally changed to Carter Hall, and set off to stalk Shayera.

This incarnation appeared on the Justice League Unlimited animated series produced for the Cartoon Network from 2004-2006.

Carter Hall - Smallville2 Hawkman Carter Hall was the leader of the 'retired' Justice Society of America (JSA) and the superhero known as Hawkman.

By the mid 70's, he and most of the other JSA members were taken into custody, but he eventually got out and started to take care of his long-time friend and ally Kent Nelson (aka Dr. Fate). He is currently a museum curator, and archaeologist who occasionally helps out Oliver Queen and his Justice League.
