Thor's Day Hero: Hawkwoman
I had mentioned earlier that strong, independent women will definitely be making regular appearances here with the Thor's Day Heroes, and you don't get any stronger than Hawkwoman. She's an alien from another planet, and has a history on said planet in law enforcement, how cool is that? She flies, has super strength, wields an arsenal of medieval weapons, and is quick to anger and quicker to settle a score.
To the uninitiated, she was just the gal-pal to Hawkman, and both of them were just winged 'extras' in the Justice League. There's been a couple of Hawkwomen (Hawkgirls) and it gets convoluted, but today's entry is on the original, Shayera Hol. It was the awesome mini-series titled Hawkworld back in 1989 that really got my attention, and I've been a fan since then.
