Synopsis for "A Hawkman of Two Worlds?"
Thanks to an encounter with Wally West, the Flash, Katar and Shayera become aware that there was a Hawkman and Hawkgirl team before them. Tracking down Joan Garrick, wife of the original Flash for more information, they are hurled back through time and find themselves impersonating their predecessors, Carter and Shiera Hall, in order to save Jay Garrick from a vengeance crazed Fiddler, who is trying to kill his old foe before his allotted time. Ultimately, the Flash and the Hawks defeat the dying Fiddler, whose soul is apparently taken to Hell by the spirit of the Fakir who had originally given him his powers. Katar also meets his father, Paran Katar as a young man, and learns of his involvement in the origins of the first Hawkman.

- This is the first time Carter Hall is seen unmasked since his disappearance before the Hawkworld reboot of Hawkman continuity, and he is depicted with black hair rather than his former blond hair. Likewise, his wife Shiera has become a redhead despite formerly having brown hair.This appears to be a deliberate change made in order to have Carter and Shiera more closely resemble the now defunct Silver Age Hawkman and Hawkwoman, though it has not been applied consistently in all their subsequent appearances.
