March 21st, 2007

With both DC and Marvel regularly releasing large collections of their old comics, there’s fun to be had in taking panels out of context:

Hawkman and Hawkgirl receive a dubious honor from the leaders of an unfortunately-named planet.

From Hawkman #11, 1965

From Marvel Team-Up #5, 1972

From Justice League of America #47, 1966

He’s also known to shout “Kapow!,” “Phoom!” or even “Zort!” in the heat of battle.
