In 2011, the entire DC Universe was rebooted, erasing all the history (good or bad) of most characters including Hawkman, hopefully ending the confusion for good. Hawkman had his own self-titled book, and Hawkgirl (Kendra Saunders again) is featured in James Robinson's ''[[{{ComicBook/Earth2}} Earth-2]].''

Hawkman had his own self-titled book, book which established him as CArter Hall... before Rob Liefeld came on as writer and retconned him into being Katar Hol.

The ComicBook/DCRebirth event ''ComicBook/DarkNightsMetal'' reintroduced the reincarnating Hawks, both having operated as Hawkman and Hawkgirl in the past. Carter was introduced as being lost in the Dark Multiverse while Kendra Saunders (this time with memories of her previous lives) disposed of her Hawkgirl equipment and became Lady Blackhawk. Carter will be the lead in the new ''Hawkman'' series will begin in June of 2018, while Kendra will be one of the main characters in a new ''Justice League'' series, now going by Hawkwoman.

* WeddingRingDefense: Played with in one Silver Age story. Carter Hall points out to a nosy co-worker that while he and Shiera might resemble Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Hawkgirl doesn't wear a wedding ring and Shiera does. He ''doesn't'' bother telling the guy that Thanagarian women wear wedding ''earrings'' instead (and yes, Hawkgirl's outfit includes those).

** Thanagarians that use the AppliedPhlebotinum of "Nth Metal" to provide antigravity. That metal is usually carried in the belt, the wings themselves are typically attached to a harness and are only used to steer in flight. In some continuities, however, the wings are a part of their body.

*** Katar Hol did had real wings briefly post-Zero Hour, as a result of merging with Carter, Shiera and the "hawk god".

* 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.]]
