Hawkman Villains In Forever Evil #1

As you may have heard, Forever Evil #1 featured the Crime Syndicate of Earth-3 gathering together the Secret Society after the defeat of the Justice Leagues.  This gives David Finch a chance to cram a bunch of characters onto a gatefold 4 page spread.  Which means its time to play "Spot The Bad Guys!"

There's a trio of Hawkman baddies in this issue.  In the image above, we can see the New 52 version of the Gentleman Ghost, sporting his Philip Tan redesign as seen in the pages of The Savage Hawkman.  Of course, as the only person who liked that book, I have to wonder how Craddock made it back into this plane of existence after he was banished.  Pretty sure that is not going to be addressed.

In front of him, the furry guy has been identified as Lion-Mane, which would make sense given his proximity to the Ghost.  Oddly, Lion-Mane did not appear in Savage Hawkman , but according to Wikipedia, the New 52 version popped up in a couple of issues of Batwing, which I may have to pick up.

The third Hawkfoe is The Monocle, who has a... spotlight scene, let's say.  If you picked up the issue, you know what I mean.

Personally, I dug the heck out of Forever Evil #1, and can't wait for the next issue.  Hopefully we'll get more Hawkman enemies as well!

Once I finally read Forever Evil I was pleasantly surprised. Also I like how foes were clustered together by their respective adversary. :)
