The Savage Hawkman by Daniel and Tan!
Straight from The Source:
Batman writer Tony Daniel will team up with artist Philip Tan (GREEN LANTERN: AGENT ORANGE, THE OUTSIDERS) for THE SAVAGE HAWKMAN #1. Carter Hall's skill at deciphering lost languages has led him to a job with an archeologist who specializes in alien ruins – but will the doctor's latest discovery spread an alien plague through New York City? No matter the personal cost, Carter Hall must don his cowl and wings and become the new, savage Hawkman to survive. The cover to issue #1 is by Philip Tan.
Tony Daniel instead of James Robinson, huh? Interesting! I don't have a particular problem with Tony Daniel, as I have only ever read a handful of his stuff, but he seems well suited to writing straight superheroics. This pretty much confirms that we'll be sticking with Egyptian Prince and not Space Cop, too.
And the title, The Savage Hawkman? Certainly an evocative name! Phillip Tan's mega-macho depiction certainly fits with it. Although I am not sure what the heck is going on with that axe -- no culture from Earth that I am aware of had weaponry like that! Maybe the "alien ruins" bit is a hint?
Let the anticipation begin, folks...
Also, I guess my poll is outdated now. I'll put a new one up later.
