  • Why exactly do pre-Crisis Hawkman and Hawkgirl use literal museum pieces to catch crooks? Rule of Cool is part of it, of course, but is there a real reason? They came to Earth to study Earth law enforcement techniques, and it's not as if any Earth cops use this stuff.
    • During the 80s series Katar said he was using reproductions
    • Part of the reason for using ancient weapons is due to their similarities to ancient Thanagarian weapons his people stopped using as revealed in Hawkworld.

  • Why didn't DC just shove Hawkworld back some 5-10 years after Zero Hour? Thus fixing 90% of the continuity problems painlessly...
    • In fact, the series was written to do just that, but this was overruled by editorial.
