Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Thanagarian Physiology: As a Thanagarian, Shayera Thal possesses several gifts that are common to members of her race, but set him apart from normal humans. A Thanagarian's life span is significantly greater than that of a normal human being. In the prime of her life, Shayera was actually older than many of Earth's senior citizens. A Thanagarian is also physically heartier than the average Earth human. They are stronger, with greater stamina and a greater resistance to pain. Thanagarians also possess enhanced senses.
  • Enhanced Vision: Shayera's eyesight is more acute than a normal human and her range of vision is similar to that of a bird.
  • Enhanced Hearing: Her auditory senses are also particularly acute and she can perceive sounds with greater clarity than the average human.
  • Blessing: Carter Hall was a priest in a past life, and still possesses the ability to bless mundane objects. For example, by muttering a prayer in front of a building's sprinkler system, he was once able to convert the water into Holy Water in order to destroy a vampire.
  • Reincarnation: The Nth metal knife which murdered Hawkman in his original incarnation as Khufu had an unusual effect upon his soul and that of his lover Chay-Ara (Hawkgirl). The pair are locked in a seemingly endless cycle of death and rebirth throughout the centuries. While not a superhuman power per se, this propensity for reincarnation has allowed Hawkman to cheat death and return to active duty in his current incarnation.

Abilities

  • Master Combatant: Shayera Thal is an expert at hand-to-hand combat and employs a wide range of weaponry as part of her crime-fighting arsenal.
  • Multilingualism: Through the use of the Absorbascon, Shayera Thal is fluent in many Earth languages. Her unique physiology also enables him to verbally communicate with birds.
  • Weaponry: Due to his multiple incarnations and having memories of all of his past lives, Khufu/Hall has become proficient in many types of weaponry. As a result, he is an expert with a wide array of archaic weapons from his past lives, including battle axes, maces, swords, spears and shields. As Nighthawk, he was a marksman with a pistol. In addition, Carter Hall is sometimes depicted handling futuristic technology. He has used a Thanagarian ship called "The Brontadon", and during the Rann-Thanagar War used Rannian hard-light armor. Hawkman is even depicted using technologically advanced laser weaponry in a possible future.
  • Reincarnated Knowledge: Due to his many lives and vast amount of experience, Hall is a brilliant tactician, fierce warrior, and strong leader. At the same time, however, he is extremely intelligent (considered a leader in his field of history and archaeology) and expresses a deeply romantic side in relation to his beloved soul-mate. Often, Carter finds it difficult to balance between the "barbarian" of his past lives and the "gentleman" of his current incarnation.

  • Enhanced Durability: Hawkman is able to withstand blows from superhuman opponents as powerful as Black Adam.
