I have been very lax at the wheel of the blog lately, with October being a dead-run between work, family, and other professional obligations. But I did want to share this super insightful comment from Geoff Johns, noted Hawkman scribe who will be handling the character in the upcoming Justice League of America title some time next year.
Well, that certainly sounds like a deep and meaningful character arc for Carter, doesn't it? Show up, beat people up, and wing off. Sounds like he should be wearing that old "Stone Cold" Steve Austin shirt, which read "Arrive. Raise Hell. Leave."
I'm sure Johns has something good in mind for Hawkman, as he does seem to be one of his favorites. So I assume that this tease is meant entirely in that vein: as a tease. Johns further described this new JLA as "the most dangerous superheroes in the world," which sounds somewhat ominous.
Justice League of America is starting sometime in the new year. It is assumed it will be part of the "Fourth Wave" of the New 52 along with the newly announced Snyder/Lee Superman title (which I am assuming is going to be titled Man Of Steel or some variant thereof) and most likely a few other books.
What do you folks think? Do you like Hawkman as the brute force muscle of the new JLA? Is this more of a swerve from Johns? Leave a comment and let's discuss!
