Rob Liefeld Talks His Hawkman Assignment

From IGN, we have an interview with newly announced Savage Hawkman scribe Rob Liefeld, where (amongst other topics) describes his take on the Winged Wonder.

IGN: In the past, Hawkman has been notable for a rather convoluted history. Is there a difficulty in paring down a character like that to keep the New 52 mantra of accessibility at the forefront?

Liefeld: I agree and here both Carter and the reader will share his journey to learn his heritage and that of the Nth metal as he travels the globe in pursuit of the truth. We learn as Carter learns and as he is attacked from all sides, he becomes the aggressor, he wants answers and wants control of his life and he is going to get it no matter who stands in his way.

I am still not enthusiastic about this news and this interview does not change that feeling.  I have a bad feeling that Hawkman will become even more of a berserker, all fighty-fighty-run-run moreso than anything else.  But time will tell I suppose.
