Writer: Gardner Fox, Art: Joe Kubert


Katar Hol and his wife Shayera Hol, law officers on the planet Thanagar, pursued a criminal to Earth. They traveled in a Thanagarian police space ship. The space ship was equipped with a "spatial overdrive" that allowed the ship to travel through hyper-space at speeds faster-than-light (FTL). After capturing the criminal, the Hols stayed on Earth to study its police methods. They took up residence in Midway City and in their Thanagarian police uniforms, were known as Hawkman and Hawkgirl. They left their star cruiser in orbit above Midway City, cloaked so as to be undetectible by Earthmen. The star cruiser was equipped with advanced technology, including the absorbascon. Hawkman and Hawkgirl frequently flew up to the orbiting ship to use its equipment to help them solve mysteries or combat foes. They also used it occasionally to return to Thanagar or to travel to other planets. Hawkman once took Superman to the remains of his home planet Krypton in the star cruiser and also teamed up with Superman against an enemy Thanagarian fleet. Hawkman and Hawkwoman, in the Thanagarian starship, visited many worlds and fought in many space battles in distant corners of the galaxy.
