The DC Universe features a host of intriguing supernatural characters, such as Etrigan The Demon and Zatanna. It could be argued that the most powerful supernatural hero is Doctor Fate, due to his abilities and responsibility as a Lord of Order. Multiple characters have taken on the identity, but the most well-known is Kent Nelson. Inhabited by an ancient entity called Nabu, Nelson carries a heavy burden. As a founding member of the Justice Society of America, Doctor Fate is an integral character in the DC Universe.
In mainstream comics it’s common for a character to be updated for a modern audience in order to keep them interesting. Their backstory might be altered or they may gain a new ability. A character with a history of being altered is Hawkgirl. Created in 1941, Hawkgirl is one of DC’s oldest superheroines, and having served with The Justice League and The Justice Society of America, she’s a premiere hero, but her history and identity have become muddled. From Ancient Egypt to an alien planet called Thanagar, The Comic Vault is tracing Hawkgirl’s story to see what makes her such an intriguing character.
