Hawkman #21

After being exposed to the energy of the Dark Multiverse, Hawkman has become lost as the persona of Sky Tyrant (the Earth 3 equivalent of Hawkman) is now in control (although Carter Hall's consciousness still exists) and apparently picking fights with giant Hawkpeople guarding dangerous power that should not be unleashed. Follow that?

Hawkman #21 features appearances by Hawkwoman, the Atom, and Adam Strange working on the problem of how to bring their version of Hawkman back to reality. However, most of the comic just deals with a deranged version of Hawkman fighting a giant version of Hawkman.

The events of this comic are more than a bit crazy, but its characters fully acknowledge that (which is kinda fun). I haven't given this comic attention in several months so I can't condemn it too much for being batshit-crazy. While I'm not sure exactly what the key evil Hawkman is after will actually unleash, I'm betting it isn't puppies and rainbows. For fans.

[DC, $3.99]
