"My suggestion for a name would be "Baffle" -- which ain't a great name, but it pays a nod to the confusing nature of his abilities, while also suggesting a power or force dampener. It doesn't quite cover the full swapping nature…"
"I'm down with all of these. These seem to be a later generation of H-B cartoons than the last bunch, which was right when I was watching Saturday morning TV. So while I appreciate Jonny Quest and Space Ghost, they weren't as much part of…"
"Horse races, IMO (unless you're talking about Golden Age Hawkgirl, in which case I completely agree). I think the major reason the Silver Age Hawks didn't really catch on was a lack of both quality villains and a supporting cast, which is…"
"Rather odd matchups. Hong Kong Phooey is a Vietnam veteran? Speed Buggy is powered by the Speed Force?
I'm intrigued by the backup story in Aquaman/Jabberjaw: "The first-ever meeting between Captain Caveman, The Spectre and the wizard…"

"I've only actually read the Silver Age Hawkman. IMO they should have kept the Egyptian/Reincarnation stuff with the Earth 2 version. The Thanagarian Hawks were interesting to me and I loved Murphy Anderson. Their villains were never that great."
"The one I saw the most was Speed Buggy which was basically Scooby-Doo as a car!

"Hawkwoman wasn't any more or less interesting than Hawkman was in the 70s and 80s. Her animated version was but we never saw that in the comics. The 00s Hawkgirl was a twist on the concept but the "bad girl" revived as a…"
Cap, a slight correction to your "Reprint Wishes" in CBG #1680. It was the Armorines that wore "Iron Man-type armor." The bodies of the H.A.R.D.
