One of the most convoluted characters
of the DC stable, which has endured several incarnations into the present day,
Hawkman has to be one of comic book impresario Gardner Fox's more
intriguing comic creations. According to Wikipedia:
Flash Comics No. 2 /Feb. 1940
Cover Art by Dennis Neville
"Hawkman was a charter member of the Justice Society of America, beginning with All Star Comics #3 (1940). In issue #8, he became the JSA's chairman, a position he would hold until the end of the JSA's run in All Star Comics. He was the only member of the JSA to appear in every adventure during the Golden Age of comic books. He romanced his reincarnated bride, Shiera Sanders, who became the crimefighter Hawkgirl."
"Along with most other superheroes, Hawkman's Golden Age adventures came to an end when the industry turned away from the genre in the early 1950s. His last appearance was in All Star Comics #57 (1951)."
