I recall Mr. Byrne's treatment of Hawkman in the past in the issue of Wonder Woman set during the JSA era. I was also amused no end that the Flash had been defeated - but now the villain was in REAL trouble, because Hawkman was there!

IMO, the Flash was probably the third most powerful regular JSA'er* in that era, after Green Lantern and Wonder Woman. But damn, Hawkman has so... much... PRESENCE! The story and the art were both beautiful!

I agree with Shane M. - I would have loved Mr. Byrne's "Hawkman" stories and art.

*Yes, Superman, Johnny Thunder's Thunderbolt, Dr. Fate, and the Spectre were more powerful than the Flash. But Superman was never a regular member of the JSA, and Dr. Fate and the Spectre were long gone by then. Thunderbolt? I don't think of him as a member... I think of Johnny Thunder as the member (who was also gone at the end of the JSA's run.) YMMV.

In an alternate universe, JB would've had a great run on a HAWKMAN series instead of WONDER WOMAN....

... not to imply that I'd want him NOT to have that WW run... perhaps JB would've done BOTH??

-C!
