Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Hawkman Recap

Sadly Hawkman stumbled a bit out of the gate back in '67 and hasn't had a chance since then to really redeem himself. At least he didn't completely strike out as the third episode had some sort of frenetic energy that at least made it interesting. Strangely, the Hawkman character had one of the richest back stories at this point its a shame that all Filmation gave us was a bird dude with a utility glove. One last complaint, I am really getting tired of all these episodes from Superboy to Superman to this ending with a character winking at the screen. I bring it up now because ending the first episode with a Skreal wink just put the whole gimmick over the top. Here is to hoping the JLA ends up being greater than the sum of its parts...

Essential Episode:
The Twenty Third Dimension
