"DC's Legends Of Tomorrow" - More 'Hawkgirl'

Sneak Peek more behind-the-scenes images of actress Ciara Renée , as DC Comics' superhero 'Hawkgirl', practicing her 'anti-gravity' flying skills, in the new CW live-action TV series, "DC's Legends Of Tomorrow":

Renée's portrayal for the 2016 TV series, marks the character's first true appearance in live action, 75 years after her comic debut.

Created by writer Gardner Fox and illustrator Dennis Neville, 'Hawkgirl' debuted in Flash Comics #1 (Jan. 1940).

In the original story, archaeologist 'Carter Hall' has a dream he is the ancient Egyptian prince 'Khufu', who has a lover named 'Shiera'. 

The next day, Carter meets a woman named Shiera who looks exactly like the woman in his dream. Carter dons the identity of Hawkman and Shiera becomes Carter's girlfriend. 

Hawkgirl owes her powers to a belt of 'Nth' metal, a substance native to the planet 'Thanagar'. The metal is psycho-reactive, responding to its bearer's thoughts and in its base form has a number of electromagnetic/gravitational properties, granting the power of flight, superhuman strength, super-acute vision and enhanced healing/regeneration ability.

Hawkgirl's preferred weapons are a spear or mace, but is also depicted using swords, axes, warhammers, shields and other melee weapons.
