by Timothy TrumanKatar Hol is a young police officer on the planet Thanagar, and a child of a privileged family.

When Hol learn's of his father's secret life, he realizes something is rotten in the system. He is set up for murder and sent into exile, undergoing a painful withdrawal from the legal narcotics that the elite class enjoy every day.

Along with its contemporaries (The Man of Steel, Batman: Year One, Aquaman Special #1, and Green Lantern: Emerald Dawn), Hawkworld was intended to revise DC Universe continuity for the post-Crisis continuity that explored the origins of the Silver Age Hawkman and Hawkwoman. Despite its intelligent, popular take on Hawkman's origin, it nonetheless fell victim to subsequent reboots of the entire DC Universe.
