Origin

Thanagarians achieved interstellar space travel millennia before humans set foot on the moon, establishing a galactic empire spanning many systems.


To achieve effective travel they utilized a metal native to their planet known only as Nth metal, which not only possesses anti-gravity properties enabling effortless flight, but also other miraculous attributes which spawned the never-ending incarnation of the Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
