* CoversAlwaysLie: ''Hawkworld'' Vol. 1 #3's back cover talks about the evils of the Thanagarian aristocracy and how Katar is the only one who can save Downside's alien population. [[spoiler: While Katar runs a secret hospital for Downsiders using black market supplies, Katar never does anything to end Downside's oppression and even rejoins the Wingmen at the end of the series to satisfy his vengeance against Byth. Although, in fairness, Katar then turns his finances and reputation as a Thanagarian Hero toward helping the Downsiders in the ongoing series... albeit him doing so by hiring JLA villain Kanjar Ro as his frontman, not knowing how corrupt Ro is.]]
