Synopsis for Hawkman: "Meet Hawkwoman"

For a costume party, Shiera puts on a Hawk costume. Hawkman's hawk flock is still in the vicinity, they mistake her for Hawkman, and call her away to deal with a crime, in which a young couple are being shaken down by some racketeers. These weasels also mistake Shiera for Hawkman, but they manage to capture her. Hawkman is meanwhile alerted to this trouble, by his avian allies, and he swoops in to rescue Shiera. He puts the racketeers out of business, then lectures Shiera about getting into danger in the Hawk costume.
