'''Hawk and Dove''' are a duo of superheroes created by Creator/SteveDitko and Creator/SteveKeates.

Hank and Don Hall are two brothers with opossing 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 strenght and agility each time that Hank yells "Hawk!" and Don says "Dove!" Hawk and Dove eventually meet and join the ComicBook/TeenTitans.

After Don's death during ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths, a woman named Dawn Granger becomes the new Dove to keep Hawk balanced.

* DependingOnTheArtist: Hank Hall/Hawk's build has varied from being simply brawny to full-on Liefeldian beefiness (it doesn't help that the '80s mini-series was drawn by Liefeld to start with).
** Artists also waver between showing Hawk and Dove's eyes through their costumes or doing a full-on Batman effect with whiting out their eyes.
** Dawn Granger/Dove II started out as an average-height girl who would magically grow to become taller as Dove, while her shorter blonde hair would change to become long and white. In recent years, artists often forget this and portray her height as being the same in both forms and her hair winds up often being colored white in civilian mode too.
* 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).
* 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.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Hawk, in some writers' interpretations. Otherwise, he's more known for being an outright {{Jerkass}}.
* KilledOffForReal: Don's death has never been either {{Retcon}}ed or reversed; even 30 years (and a reboot) later, his successor Dawn remains the new Dove and his brother Hank's partner.
* PlotRelevantAgeUp: Underwent this in a guest appearance in ''The Brave and the Bold'' in the 1970s. Overlapped with a bit of a ContinuitySnarl, as Hank and Don were aged up to being adult men while the rest of the DCU didn't age with them. Marv Wolfman then poked fun at the continuity error in their cameo at Donna Troy's wedding, with the college-aged Hank and Don being baffled when someone had the impression that they were much older.
* RedOniBlueOni: Hawk's Red Oni to Dove's Blue Oni
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Dove and Hawk respectively.
* 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.
