I Miss My Hawkgirl
I have been a big fan of DC Comics and the characters in its multiverse. I prefer DC over Marvel because I think in some ways, DC comics are more mature and dark compared with Marvel or maybe it’s just me, being a follower of The Batman and The Joker.
Well, aside from them, I also like Hawk Girl or Shayera Hol, I feel that she represents the stronger side of femininity and she’s a total badass in my opinion.
In terms of character knowledge, I’m not really a comic fanatic when it comes to stories. In my younger years, I can’t afford to buy comics. The closest I got to reading them was to borrow from classmates.
About the article, well, I always see her as The Hawkgirl of the family… strong, smart and beautiful… But, it’s been really a while since my wife and I talked. She works in Singapore while I’m here in the Philippines, working and taking care of our kids. It was a small petty issue that blew out of proportion to the point that we engaged into silence and apparently not conversing at all. I’m currently in mourning with the passing of my parents. Maybe it’s lame but I just wish she understood that I’m on an unstable emotional plane that moment… well up until now… I guess… I still dream of them… I still have small breakdowns and other emotional shits that I thought I wouldn’t be experiencing.
I miss my wife and all I want is that we can be together again, I need her now more than ever… I hate putting up a mask everyday like a superhero… I’m tired too… I love my Hawk Girl so much and I wouldn’t want anyone by my side when I grow old…
Something about Shayera...
Shayera Hol was a lieutenant and an instructor in espionage on the planet Thanagar, engaged to be married to Commander Hro Talak. Shayera was sent in advance of the Thanagarian invasion as a scout to determine Earths’ weaknesses should Thanagar’s enemies, the Gordanians, attack. Her cover story was that she was tracking criminals to their fortress when she was unexpectedly teleported to Earth.
Shayera eventually established herself on Earth and became known to the populace as Hawkgirl. During the Imperium invasion, she was telepathically summoned by J’onn J’onzz to assist in repelling the invaders. Hawkgirl was teamed with Superman to take out the aliens’ factories, which propelled smoke into the air to block out the sun. They were unsuccessful and were both captured.J’onn, Wonder Woman, Flash and Green Lantern attempted to rescue the two but were themselves captured. The six heroes were held for the alien invaders leader.
After Batman had successfully faked his own death and infiltrated the factory, he reversed the smoke process. The group was able to free themselves and destroy the factory and its duplicates around the world. In fact, Hawkgirl was responsible for destroying the Imperium when he attempted to escape on board his personal shuttle craft. Due to her efforts during the invasion, Hawkgirl was invited aboard the Watchtower, and formed the Justice League along with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and J’onn.
