Summary: Tracking down the last of Hath-Set's mercenaries in the Andes, Hawkman and Hawkgirl smash their way to the villian's compound. While Hath-Set does his work with the bones, the mercenary commander wants to know about his money. After informing him that the money has been wired to the mercnary's Swiss account, Hath-Set disappears. The Hawks arrive, take out the last mercenary, and see where Hath-Set has gone: into a vortex generated by all of the bones of their previous lives which have been arranged into a gateway.
Review: Where could a mystical gateway made out of the Hawks' bones lead to? I'm not sure if the Hawks story in Brightest Day has much to do with the events of Blackest Night or not. It seems like the other stories, except possibly the Manhunter, are following up on that series, whereas this is going it's own way. That is not a complaint.
