Hawk and Dove

Hawk and Dove are a superhero team that appear in DC Comics. Created by Steve Ditko, Steve Skeates, Dick Giordano, and Carmine Infantino, “The Hawk and the Dove” debuted in Showcase No. 75 (June 1968). The duo has existed in multiple incarnations over the years across several eponymous ongoing series and mini-series, and has also appeared in a number of recurring roles and guest-appearances in titles such as Teen Titans, Birds of Prey, and Brightest Day. The duo originated as teenage brothers Hank Hall as Hawk and Don Hall as Dove, but the majority of published Hawk and Dove appearances have featured Hank Hall and Dawn Granger, an unrelated young woman who assumes the role of Dove in Hawk and Dove (vol. 2) No. 1 (October 1988) following Don’s death in 1985’s Crisis on Infinite Earths.
