Big Red was the name of a large, brown hawk, that would occasionally assist Hawkman and Hawkgirl.


Some criminals attempted to murder Hawkman by throwing him out of an airplane, when his falling form was spotted by a hawk, soon to be named "One-Eye", which saved Hawkman, and took him to a hidden valley populated by very intelligent birds. Hawkman learned their language while the amazing birds helped him repair his wings. He then returned to his pursuit of the criminals, backed by a large flock of hawks, but the crooks did some shooting and One-Eye was killed. Big Red was part of this flock and soon became a close ally of Hawkman.



  • language Big Red had the ability to communicate with and understand Hawkman. He once was seen to talk in English.[1]
