Hank and Don Hall are two brothers with opposing points of view; while Hank believes in violence as the only way to solve any problem, Don believes in reaching his enemies with an open hand instead of a closed fist. Two Lords of Order and Chaos (cosmic entities of TheDCU), to show their peers that order and chaos can work together, bestow the brothers with heightened strength and agility each time that Hank yells "Hawk!" and Don says "Dove!" Hawk and Dove eventually meet and join the ComicBook/TeenTitans.

* FaceHeelTurn: Due to some ExecutiveMeddling, Hank wound up becoming the villain Monarch in ''ComicBook/{{Armageddon 2001}}''. He then changed his codename to Extant and killed a number of ComicBook/{{Justice Society|OfAmerica}} members, as well as attempting to rewrite history.



* HeroicSacrifice: Dove, during ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths. In the actual event, he was disintegrated by the shadow demons. This was retconned in ComicBook/PostCrisis continuity to him being crushed by falling rubble, so that there would be a body left behind to bury (and confirm his death). In the New 52 continuity [[spoiler: he sacrificed himself to stop Mr Twister, presumably at the start of his career]].
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Don Hall during BlackestNight is the only corpse immune to [[DemonicPossession Black Ring resurrection.]] Dawn Granger has this while alive, and it's weaponized.

When DC instituted the line-wide reboot ComicBook/TheNew52, Hawk and Dove (Hank and Dawn version) got a new series, which introduced several new bird-themed avatars, opposed to Hawk and Dove. However, it didn't sell well, and failed within eight issues. They have most recently appeared in the ''Titans Hunt'' series, which [[RetCon reveals]] that a version of the classic Titans once existed in the New 52 universe, but everyone involved had [[LaserGuidedAmnesia their memories wiped]]. [[spoiler: Apparently including Hank's memories of Don, who sacrificed himself to save the team]].

After Don's death during ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, a woman named Dawn Granger became the new Dove to keep Hawk balanced. This lasted for a while, between Nineteen Eighty-Six to Nineteen Eight-Nine, until ComicBook/Armageddon2001, when due to behind-the-scenes reasons, Hank became the supervillain the Monarch, and Dawn died. Hank disappeared for some time, before re-appearing in ComicBook/ZeroHour as Extant, the supposed BigBad (though he was actually working for Parallax, the real villain of that story).

* AbortedArc: The New 52 series had mention of a "war circle" Hawk was a part of, not to mention the whole deal with Condor and Alex Quirk, all abandoned after the series was cancelled.
* AxCrazy: Swan, an EvilCounterpart to Dove, who got her powers by stabbing another avatar.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Dawn, in the reboot. The exact details never get expanded upon, but the implication is she was homeless, and much more violent than her present behaviour suggests.
* DeaderThanDead: Condor makes an offhand comment about having eaten Don's soul. He's interrupted before he can finish, and the series was cancelled before it could be explained any further.



* LightEmUp: During ''Blackest Night'', Dove displayed the ability to give off a bright white light that destroyed Black Lanterns.



* SiblingYinYang: Hank was generally characterized as a short-tempered and fight-happy loudmouth, with Don being the calmer, more pacifistic, and studious brother.
** Co-creator Steve Skeates expressed some dismay with the {{Flanderization}} that quickly set in after the heroes' debut, as Steve Ditko was more apt to writing the stories in Hank's favor and making Don come off too passive and weak, rather than balancing out the brothers' characterizations.

Hank disappeared for some time, before re-appearing in ComicBook/ZeroHour as Extant, the supposed BigBad (though he was actually working for Parallax, the real villain of that story).

During Creator/GeoffJohns run on ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica, Extant was killed by Atom Smasher. And then Dawn turned out to have been alive all along, her death having been faked by the evil wizard Mordru, who was also responsible for Hank's descent into villainy. The next time Dawn reappeared, she had a new partner, her never-before mentioned sister Holly, who'd been living in Britain. The due remained mostly in the background for a time.

Then, in ComicBook/BlackestNight, Hank was brought back as a Black Lantern, who hunted down and killed Holly. At the end of the event, Hank was revived by the White Lantern. He and Dawn then joined the newest version of ComicBook/BirdsOfPrey. At the same time, Dawn began a relationship with ComicBook/{{Deadman}}.
