The 20th and final wave of Mattel’s popular DC Universe Classics toy line recently started showing up on store shelves and The Blot is pretty excited about picking up these Hawk and Dove action figures. I’ve always been partial to B and C-List DC Comics super heroes, and Hawk and Dove are two of my favorites! Whether it’s Hank and Don (the original Hawk and Dove) or Hank and Dawn (the modern version of the duo), I’m always excited when they show up for a cameo in a comic book or get their own mini-series or ongoing title.
With Hawk and Dove it really is feast or famine. After years of non-use, Hawk and Dove played a huge role in DC Comics’ mega events Blackest Night and Brightest Day and were even given their own ongoing title as part of the companywide New 52 reboot. They even brought in Rob Liefeld, a fan favorite who got his start on Hawk and Dove back in the 90s, to be the artist (and now writer) of the series. Then we got Hawk and Dove action figures and min-busts from DC Direct and now this! Like I said, feast or famine, but I can’t complain. I’m just glad to see Hank and Dawn relevant again in the DC Universe.
