"They're fun, they're sassy and they all seem to have a mean right hook. For years, DC Comics has consistently created amazing female superheroes. I'd like to pay tribute to these amazing women of the DC Universe with one of my patented pin-up series -- Ladies of DC! Eighth in this series is the hip Hawkgirl!

Real Name: Kendra Saunders
Other Notable Aliases: Shayera Hol
First Appearance: JSA Secret Files #1
Abilities: Belt with a special metal that defies gravity, artificial feather wings, archaic weaponry, flight, enhanced strength, healing factor, enhanced vision, reincarnation.

Probably one of the more recognizable heroines thanks to the Justice League cartoon, Hawkgirl is a prestigious mantle in the DC Universe. The Hawk title refers to strength, perseverance and physical prowess -- but it also means tragedy. Kendra Saunders has been Hawkgirl for just a little bit over a decade and yet she's already got an amazing resume. Having served on both the JSA and the JLA, Kendra has proven herself as a hero. I've read both volumes of hers when she got her own title and rather enjoyed her flirtation with Roy Harper when she was in the JLA. Hawkgirl is a character I definitely admire. I absolutely love her modern look and hope that she's a character who'll last."
