- Hawkgirl and her mace. Hawkgirl's mace displayed alot of power in the show (it had considerable hitting power, never once got damaged, was found to disrupt magic and even deflected a planet-destroying blast at one point), but the weapon would have been more effective in the hands of J'onn, Superman, and Wonder Woman, three people who have Super Strength as well as the ability to fly like Hawkgirl.
