Batman: The Brave And The Bold S.1:Ep.7: "Dawn Of The Dead Man!"

Last week on Batman: The Brave And The Bold, we once again got an appearance by that most spectral foe of Hawkman, the Gentleman Ghost!  Unlike his first appearance, this time the Ghost was the main villian of the episode, hanging out in London and trying to raise an army of undead criminals to become his army.  Lucky for us, Batman, Deadman, Green Arrow and Speedy are on the case.

Gentleman Ghost really looks sharp in animated form.  His voice, supplied by Greg Ellis, hits the right note of sophistication mixed with anger for the former highwayman turned ghostly bad guy.  Further fun is derived from the character's vulnerability to Nth Metal, once more on display in this episode, as both Batman and Green Arrow are well stocked with the strange metal in their gizmos.  Will we eventually see Hawkman on the show?  We can only hope!

Sorry to hear that you are sick, but I will definitely check your site out as well. I hope my humble Hawk's nest meets with your approval.
