Known Powers

Normal humans or Thangarians with above average intelligence and excellent hand-to-hand combat skills; apparently possessing the accumulated knowledge of their former lives.

Accessories

Cloak of Cagliostro: Mystical cloak capable of teleporting anyone or thing enveloped within it folds. The cloak can also be used to render the wearer invisible and immaterial as well as serve as a repository of other items and elements.


Hawk Uniform: Artificial wings, harness, boots and belt containing the gravity defying Nth metal.


Note: Nth metal contains a wide variety of abilities besides flight; including increased strength, speed, agility, resistance to cold and heat, accelerated healing, heightened senses and others which have not yet been revealed. Prolonged exposure to Nth metal allows the user to utilizes its abilities to a lesser degree when they have no immediate physical contact with the element.

Origin

Thousands of years ago, Egyptian Prince Khufu and his lover, came into contact with Nth (ninth) metal, an element from the planet Thanagar. Exposure to the extraterrestrial material imprinted racial memories from the alien Thanagarians onto the couple and combined with their true love, strengthened their souls and the bond between them.


Soon after their exposure to Nth metal, the lovers were murdered by Hath-Set, a corrupt priest of Anubis. Over subsequent, and mostly unrevealed lifetimes, Khufu and Chay-Ara were reborn again and again, destined to meet and fall in love.


In the middle of the 20th century, Khufu was reborn as the independently wealthy Carter Hall, who after handling an Egyptian knife, realized his true lineage and continued his quest for vengeance against his murderer Hath-Set, reborn as Anton Hastor. Utilizing the antigravity Nth metal to construct an anti-gravity belt and wing harness in tribute to the Egyptian hawk god Horus, he adopted ancient weapons of war, becoming Hawkman.
