Katar was a Thanagarian soldier and the reincarnation of Carter Hall. After coming to Earth, he eventually became a superhero known as "Hawkman" and joined the Justice Society of America, while also marrying Carter's ex-lover Shiera Hall. After going back to Thanagar, he forbade 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 her, and was threatened with death at her hands 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 was met with little attention from his wife, who cared more the capture of Batman's team. Batman later cited Katar to be one of the people wrongfully killed by Superman.
