Geoff Johns On Hawkman' In 'Justice League Of America'

Johns discusses Hawkman and his role in the new JLA title



Source: Newsarama

Having already written Hawkman in both the previous Hawkman title and in JSA, Geoff Johns discusses his approach for the New52 Hawkman in the upcoming title Justice League of America

"This Hawkman's a different Hawkman than the one I wrote in Justice Society of America, who was a little more regal, as the reincarnated warrior," he said. "But this is an extra-terrestrial from Thanagar."

 

Hawkman uses the name "Carter Hall" currently, but he's actually an alien from the planet Thanagar.  Katar Hol was born to a race of Thanagarian warriors, although he was a man of peace. After a powerful enemy of Thanager engineered a plague that caused them to lose all their wings, the war-minded Thanagarian emperor, Corsar, began mining Nth Metal to make armor and weapons. When the Nth Metal came into contact with Katar Hol, it bonded to him and formed his Hawkman uniform organically, restoring his wings. 
 
Upcoming Hawkman writer Tom DeFalco adds "When I think of Hawkman, I see a warrior who was betrayed by the world he loved and routinely put himself at risk to protect. After being exiled on Earth, Katar Hol was forced to adopt the identity of Carter Hall and is now at war with himself and those who threaten his adopted planet. Carter yearns for a simple life, but Katar revels in the power that his Nth Metal gives him. Carter seeks knowledge, but Katar is hunter in search of prey."
 
Johns also promises we'll learn about Hawkman pretty quickly in the new JLA series.
 
"This Hawkman... you'll know clearly where Hawkman's coming from — why he's here, what he's doing, and a bit of a mystery about him in issue #1," Johns said. "Then in issue #2, you'll see him interact with the team in a way that is extremely different than how we've ever seen Hawkman interact with a team before."
 
"Hawkman isn't much of a team player, and he keeps a bit of mystery between himself and the rest of the team members. He just shows up, beats someone up, then disappears and no one knows where he goes," Johns added.
 
 
Justice League of America #1 by Geoff Johns and David Finch will be on sale February 20.

Will this make everyone forget about the Rob-Liefeld Hawkman by chance?

Glad to see Johns will get to write the character again but I like my Hawkmen reincarnated - not extraterrestrial.
And DeFalco? Bleech.

I'll just go sit in the corner and silently weep at the loss of the amazing Hawkman Johns gave us in JSA. *sigh*

Maybe instead of pissing off one group of fans with going either Carter or Katar, they should just piss off all of them by creating an entirely new Hawkman. :-D

Usually I'd say yes but the Geoff Johns version from a few years back was AWESOME. Geoff Johns used to be a fantastic writer but he's lost a lot of what, at least I think, we used to love about him.

They were readable, I got the whole run and also his Teen Titans run for less than $5. They were okay disposable reading for that price.

I haven't read much else except some of the Green Lantern stuff which was either overrated or just plain lousy. I haven't read the new Aquaman stuff or anything, one issue of Justice League (bought to re-sell) was enough for me.

So, you're probably right but really none of it made me a fan of his writing, which IMO spans the high and low ends of a range of mediocre superhero comics.

Maybe you'll like the new stuff?

Can't decide which is worse for a book: being canceled or having Tom DeFalco brought on as writer.

As Old Yeller showed us, it's more merciful to put the rabid dog out of its misery than let it live in suffering.

That's only a whisper compared to how he totally f**ked over Fantastic Four.
