Hawkman Graces The Cover Of JLA/The 99 #3

Well, this pretty much makes it official: the Winged Wonder will be appearing in the upcoming JLA/The 99 crossover, and evidently play a pretty big role!  Solicits thanks to Newsarama:

The first-ever meeting between DC Comics' Justice League of America and Teshkeel Comics' the 99 continues! Hawkman joins three members of The 99 on a flight to Brazil where earthquakes and devastation suggest the existence of another Noor Stone and another new addition to the 99's team! Can Hafiz harness the stone's power before he destroys everything? And why is Firestorm acting so . . . oddly?

I've said it before and I will say it again, I don't know The 99 from The 100, but I may give this miniseries a try.  I am a sucker for international heroes, and this group seems to be a wide and varied lot.  Part of me really just feels like this whole thing is a promotional gimmick... you know, moreso than every other promotional gimmick which DC and Marvel publish.  Take that comment as you will.  In any event, good to see Hawkman playing a big part in what (I assume) should be a high profile DC book.  

Question: Where's Hawkgirl?

That's a nice looking picture of Hawkman too!

That Hawkman pic (were he solo and in the foreground) would make a great poster.
