I think the costume redesigns in DC's New 52 has been hit-or-miss. In most cases I prefer the classic look over the new modernized designs. Hawkgirl is definitely a huge exception to that judgement, though. Don't get me wrong, her signature yellow, red, and green is perfect. I just also happen to love this blue redesign. In the New 52, Hawkgirl of Earth2 is Kendra Munoz-Saunders, a famous treasure hunter who was bestowed with wings from the Egyptian God Horus while on a mission. She dons a unique blue costume that looks great with her skin tone. In the New 52, Kendra is a dark-skinned Hispanic girl. That ethnicity change is part of what makes Hawkgirl so intriguing. Despite having the same name and wings, you just have a feeling that this is an entirely new character that you have to (and want to) get to know. DC Collectibles is on a major roll this year. Aside from a couple cases of weird face paint, they've hit every lady out of the park. Let's check out Earth 2 Hawkgirl below!
The sculpt by Sam Greenwell is amazing. I was afraid he was no longer working with DCC since he's been off the radar so long. He has a great skill for sculpting wonderfully feminine body types with all the right curves and realistic proportions.
Hawkgirl comes packed with two detached wings as well as a pistol and a knife.
The knife fits snuggly into a boot holster and the gun fits in another holster on her hip.
I'm showing this position of the wings because they look really different when you fold the wings forward.
Here are some images of Earth 2 Hawkgirl from the comics.
Time for some Comparison Pics!
And here she is with the DCUC Series 08 Hawkgirl from 2009 and DC Direct's JSA Series 1 Hawkgirl from 2007.
