Oh, DC Comics! Always being so... DC Comics!
Earlier today, DC sent out a tweet promoting the launch of Future Quest, the only decent looking book in their grim and gritty Hanna Barbera reboot. However, astute, we might even say eagle-eyed websites such as iO9 noticed a slight problem with the tweet:
That's not Hawkman in the picture above, but Birdman. Of course, it's understandable that DC would be confused, what with all the bird-themed superheroes they've got running around. Off the top of our heads, there's Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Birdman, Black Canary, multiple Robins, Red Robin, Koko B. Ware, and probably various other -man, -woman, -boy, -girl, and -dog variations of all those characters, plus legacy bird-themed superheroes to boot. But of course, it's not our job to keep track of that sort of thing. It is DC's job though. And as usual, they screwed it up.
