20 Answers, 1 Question With Dan DiDio -- 02/13/2009
From the February 13th edition of the series on Newsarama...
"4. When will we learn the fate of Hawkman and Hawkgirl?
DD: Actually Hawkman and Hawkgirl are recuperating right now from the events of Final Crisis, and they'll be seen in one or two spots coming up, but they also have a big role in the first part of Blackest Night."
More fuel for the speculatory fire! Apparently Hawkman and Hawkgirl are not dead, but the Kendra-as-a-Black-Lantern theory continues to gain some strength.
Of course, if they are not dead, this begs the question of what the two feathers symbolized in Final Crisis... the beat goes on, folks.
