Hawkwoman is a superheroine and member of the Justice League. She is a Thanagarian and married to Hawkman.[5]

Physical appearance[edit | edit source]

Hawkwoman's most distinguishing features are the giant wings on her back. She wears a costume matching colors with Hawkman's, but lacking most armor. She also dons a golden breastplate, leaving the top of her torso bare, and a black skirt with dark red plating. Her arms were wrapped in black and dark red cloth, with extra padding around the shoulders. She also wears knee-high greaves. Her helmet is less elaborate than Hawkman's, featuring only two brown wings facing outward. It allows her red hair to flow out the back.

Her primary weapon is a large spiked mace[6] made of Nth metal.[7]
