Hawkgirl is one of the oldest female costumed heroes in comics. She was first introduced in All Star Comics #5 in 1941 and has held her own in the DC Universe ever since. I was always aware of her as a character, but somewhat abstractly as I only ever saw her as the wife or girlfriend of Hawkman, and never a hero in her own right. Then she was cast in the Justice League and Justice League Unlimited cartoons as one of the seven core members of the League. This cartoon version was physically based on the Silver Age Shayera Hol character, although her personality was a new creation for the show. These cartoons boosted her popularity immensely and now she is always considered one of the great DC heroines. So when the Justice League of America comic rebooted in 2007, she was a shoe-in. This action figure represents that incarnation of Hawkgirl (as Kendra Saunders) in the artistic style of Ed Benes via the sculpting prowess of Ray Villafane. Let's check her out in detail below!
I think her sculpt is very well done, but it doesn't really represent the curvy Ed Benes style. In fact, almost all the figures in each the Benes JLA waves looked a little stiff and awkward (IMO).
Time for a Comparison Pic!
