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 macemade of Nth metal.
Hawkman and Hawkwoman started operating as heroes in 2004,and were inducted in the Justice League in 2004.
After being made a slave of the Light's mind control, Hawkwoman welcomed Vandal Savage aboard the Watchtower with a silent kneel of obedience. In the time she was enthralled, the Light used her and five other Leaguers to attack Rimbor. For sixteen hours, they went on a rampage and told all present to beware the Justice League and Earth.
When Black Canary, Red Tornado and Red Arrow came to the satellite and Klarion discovered they weren't under mind control, he summoned the six heroes that were on a mission back to the base. Hawkwoman knocked out Black Canary with her mace.
When the Team arrived, she fought Robin and Wolf. When the latter pinned her down, Robin used cure-tech on her.
After John Stewart deliberated with the Guardians of the Universe, it was decided that the six wanted Leaguers would travel to Rimbor to defend themselves before the High Court. Hawkwoman would not have to face it alone, as Hawkman chose to accompany her.
Hawkwoman and the other Leaguers were found guilty of all charges and taken away. Superboy, Miss Martian and Adam Strange arrived in court, presented new evidence and argued the Tribunal should reverse its decision. After further deliberation, the charges against Hawkwoman and the Leaguers were dropped and they were released from custody.
Rimbor June 20, post-00:16UTC
As Hawkwoman and the other Leaguers walked the streets of Rimbor, ready to return to Earth, Vandal Savage broadcast a message through holographic monitors, declaring Earth off limits to alien invasion. Superman was skeptical about Savage's threat, but then Batman pointed to a giant satellite, the Warworld, passing through Rimbor.
The League finally arrived at Mount Justice, Hawkwoman among them. The mountain was in ruins, and Superman wondered whether they were already too late in dealing with the invasion that embroiled the Earth before and during their absence. Members of the Team descended from the heavens, acting as a welcoming committee. Batman asked Aqualad, who in their last meeting was still a traitor, what happened there. Aqualad reassured them that the crisis has passed, but not without loss.
Hawkwoman and Hawkman rendezvous with Hro Talak at the destroyed Nth Metal Refinery to report about the Apokolyptic activity, the stolen Nth Metal, as well as the deceased Thanagarians. Hawkwoman and her team's efforts were harshly criticized by Hro Talak, whom dismisses their meeting.
Hawkwoman and the others successfully infiltrated Granny Goodness's lair. Hawkwoman is the first to notice all of the meta-human children, as well as discovering a strange machine, but were soon confronted by Big Barda and The Furies. Hawkwoman fights Lashina and in the midst of their battle, they were all caught inside a strange machine that when activated induced pain on them. with Superman's help, Hawkwoman is freed and they attempted to fly towards Granny Goodness, whom used the Fatherbox to open a boom tube portal to transport them into outer space. As they gasped for air in the vacuum of space, they were saved by Guy Gardner and watched as The Orphanage escapes through another boom tube.
