So, here is where it all went SO wrong. Extent merges the golden age hawks with Katar Hol/Hawkman of Thanagar. Zero hour...


Carter Hall/Hawkman,Katar Hol/Hawkman,Sheara Hall/Hawkgirl,Char:Extant,Group:JSA,Event:Zero Hour

DC decided that the JSA had just gotten too old and no amount of magic pixie dust could explain how characters in their 60's and 70's could still be in action.

This is it three characters became one 2 guys and woman ( which did make you wonder what was under the Hawk-god"'s loin cloth.

I will admit tho' hawkman didn't get it worst in Zero hour. That would be Guy Gardner and that whole "Warrior" mess...

True, the Hawkworld mini, while well-written on its own, had already done plenty of damage to continuity, but Zero Hour somehow managed to make it even WORSE.

The Hawkworld prestige series was intended to take place -before- Hawkman's silver age career, covering a period of his history that hadn't been too deeply examined before.

Editorial mandate, however, decided it had to take place when it was published, and decided it was a total retcon of the Hawk-franchise.

It's funny that one single caption box reading "Ten years ago..." could have saved us from decades of Hawkman continuity problems.

I -know- right?

To be honest though, I'm almost certain Tim Truman didn't give a rats ass. His various series have a tendency to ignore continuity pell-mell without explicitly being retcons, so it might also be thought of as a prototype Elseworlds story.

Of course, that's not what happend, but...
