Synopsis for Hawkman: "Revenge of the Falconer"

A man named Higgens has bred and trained giant falcons to obey commands to rescue people in danger, but "the commission" turns down his request for more funds to expand his program as they aren't convinced his falcons would obey anyone else's orders. Not long after, Carter and Shiera see the giant falcons robbing an armored car. They switch to Hawkman and Hawkgirl and pursue the falcons into a mountain pass, but fall into a trap where a steel net's dropped over them.

The heroes come to and find Higgens is also a prisoner of a masked malefactor who calls himself the Falconer. The fiend has the Hawk-duo taken to a fatal drop and released by the falcons. Fortunately, Hawkman managed to cut his ropes on one of the falcon's talons and manages to save Hawkgirl from a fatal plunge.

Hawkman and Hawkgirl catch up to the Falconer's gang as they sneak onto a millionaire's estate with intent to rob. The Falconer's unmasked as the head of "the commission", who came up with his scheme to get Higgens blamed for the falcons' participation in robberies. In the course of the fight a fire starts, and threatens the orphanage next door. Fortunately the giant falcons were trained for rescue, and haul the kids to safety in time. For the falcons' help in the orphanage rescue, Higgens is given full funding by "the commission".
