Hawkman Tidbit From SDCC

SDCC has begun!  (Cue Mortal Kombat music)

From Newsarama's coverage of DC's The Dark and The Edge panel, Savage Hawkman scribe Rob Liefeld (who was there to talk about his other books, Grifter and Deathstroke) made side comment about the Winged Wonder in the Q&A:

"...Hawkman, since Super Friends as a kid, I've loved him.... He's a guy on the run, there's a little bit of Jason Bourne in there."  

Hawkman as Jason Bourne?  Makes sense considering the next storyline is called "Hawkman: Wanted."  And given his proclivity to go "savage," the analogy works because Bourne (at least in the movies) was a guy who was simply pushed too far too often and had to take matters into his own hands.

I am going to assume that we'll hear more about the upcoming plans for Savage Hawkman later in the weekend when DC gets to their Justice League group panel, and I will be posting whatever information I find!
