Hawkman was a Thanagarian soldier and husband of Hawkgirl.

Injustice: Year Zero

During World War II, Carter and Shiera were searching a mine for the seal of Apophis, the Egyptian God of Chaos. By luck, Shiera would fall into the pathway leading to the seal, and the pair opened the door leading to Apophis. Immediately, Carter expressed discomfort at the mummified remains and advised his wife to close the door and leave, but Shiera had been lured in by the Lords of Chaos into taking Apophis's helm and amulet before going on a rampage in the Second Battle of El Alamein.

Carter quickly chased after his wife and was wounded in the crossfire, causing Shiera to briefly snap into a rage and kill most of the soldiers in their vicinity. Carter would use this opportunity to remove the helm from his wife and a distressed Shiera quickly took her husband to medical care. Unfortunately, the pair neglected to also bring Apophis's amulet with them, and the relic would find its way to Nazi hands through its officer, Dirk Strasser.

Decades following the events of World War II, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, and the rest of the Justice Society of America, were given a party by the Justice League for their previous heroics.

Injustice: Year Five

He forbid his wife from returning to Earth to become a hero and, after returning on a deep space mission, discovered that she disobeyed him. He went to Earth and fought her in combat to return to their planet with him but was defeated by his wife, who threatened to kill him if he ever returned to Earth again.

Katar eventually did return to Earth and sided with the Insurgency in order to oppose his wife. Hawkman was sent on a mission by Batman to retrieve a ring of Kryptonite from Mongul off in deep space. Hawkman returned to Earth with the Kryptonite, albeit with it infused into his mace, and attempted to get revenge on Superman for keeping his wife away. As Katar intended to legitimately kill Superman and took the Kryptonite for himself instead of giving it to the Insurgency, he was abandoned by Batman's team who prioritized retrieving Cyborg. When the other members of the Regime arrive, Flash quickly takes away Katar's mace. Although weakened, Superman offered to still keep their fight 1-on-1, and the enraged Kryptonian proceeded to beat Katar to death.

Katar's death is met with little attention from his wife, caring more the capture of Batman's team. Batman later cited Katar to be one of the people wrongfully killed by Superman.
