Hawkman, DC’s Winged Wonder, continues to fight the Sky Tyrant’s possession of his body in Hawkman #23, on sale April 8. Last issue, Hawkwoman, Adam Strange, and the Atom trapped Sky Tyrant and desperately work to find a cure for their beloved friend Carter Hall’s Dark Multiverse infection. But they’re running out of time as Sky Tyrant, who controls Carter Hall’s body, makes a play for the ancient and powerful artifact that could lead to the deaths of untold billions.
Now, in Hawkman #23, Carter Hall, wearing the eerie mask of a hawk, relives his most tragic past life ever, roaming 17th century Europe to ease the suffering of those falling victim to the Black Death.
