(The Fierce and the Courageous
#34) - Archaeology student Warren Hall made his first on-panel
appearance as the high-flying Angelhawk. Although he was born a metamutant,
Warren Hall kept this fact a closely-guarded secret.
(Judgment League: Avengers (vol.
I)#4) - Along with fellow heroes
Canary (Dinah Barton) and
Goliath (Oliver Queen), Angelhawk discovered
the body of the World War II hero known as
Super-Soldier (Clark Kent) in suspended
animation -- frozen in an iceberg in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. The
shocked heroes carefully defrosted Super-Soldier's body, discovering to their
delight that he was still alive after all these years. Finally back
in action, Super-Soldier joined forces with Angelhawk and the other assembled
heroes and formed the Judgment League:
(Secret Crisis of the Infinity
Hour) - Along with the other members of the JLA, Angelhawk
was transported to Apokolips by
Doctor Strangefate (Charles Xavier) in
order to fight the forces of
Thanoseid during the
Secret Crisis of the Infinity
(Secret Crisis of the Infinity
Hour#7) - Near the close of the Secret Crisis of the Infinity
Hour, Angelhawk was among those heroes present as
American Girl (Carol Barnes), the former
sidekick of Super-Soldier, heroically sacrificed her life to further the
(Judgment League: Avengers (vol. II)#122) - "Trial of Mariner" - The metamutant member of the Judgment League: Avengers known as Aqua-Mariner (Arthur McKenzie) was framed for the destruction of three Roxxon oil freighters, a heinous criminal act which was actually perpetrated by the metamutant-hating madman known as Will Magnus. Given Aqua-Mariner's longtime personal war against surface dwellers who would harm his undersea habitat, the United States government automatically labeled him an "eco-terrorist" and sent in an army of troops to apprehend him without so much as an investigation. Led by Super-Soldier, Angelhawk's non-metamutant JLA teammates eventually captured Aqua-Mariner and imprisoned him without trial.
by the manner in which their fellow metamutant was imprisoned without trial,
most of the metamutant members of the JLA, under the guidance of the mysterious
New Gotham power broker known only as
Mr. X (Marco Xavier), freed Aqua-Mariner
from JLA custody and set out to find the lost city of
Atlantis, the legendary city of Homo
Superior, under the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. Angelhawk, although
he was secretly a metamutant, chose not to blow his cover and to stay with
the non-metamutant members of the JLA. But Angelhawk's
non-metamutant teammates were not about to give up Aqua-Mariner without a
fight . . .
(JLX#1) - "A League of Their Own" - On the stormy waters of the North Atlantic Ocean, Angelhawk and the Judgment League: Avengers engaged their former teammates -- the band of renegade metamutants now known as the JLX -- in an attempt to capture the metamutant Aqua-Mariner, who was wanted for torching Roxxon oil tankers. Instructed by Super-Soldier to engage in a full assault on the JLX Wavecruiser, Angelhawk was ambushed by the teleporting member of the JLX known as Nightcreeper (Kurt Ryder), who teleported onto Angelhawk's back while still airborne and caused him to crash onto the surface of the JLX Wavecruiser.
But unknown to both the JLA and the JLX, Angelhawk was secretly a metamutant in league with the JLX's telepathic benefactor Mr. X. Through the magic of telepathy, Angelhawk informed Mr. X that he was taken down. Mr. X then told him to play his trump card. Angelhawk did as he was instructed and feigned a broken back, falling limp into the ocean's waters. His performance was convincing, especially since Mr. X helped him by projecting real pain into his mind. All combat between the JLA and JLX immediately came to a stop as Captain Marvel (Billy Mar-Vell) of the JLA dove into the ocean after Angelhawk. Minutes later, Captain Marvel re-emerged from the water with Angelhawk in his arms. The Judgment League: Avengers then retreated so that they could seek medical treatment for Angelhawk, vowing to bring Aqua-Mariner to justice another day.
Mr. X telepathically told Angelhawk that he played his part
well and promised that he would keep his metamutant status a secret.
(JLX Unleashed#1 (bts)) - Later, Angelhawk presumably revealed
his status as a metamutant and eventually overtly affiliated himself with
Mr. X and the JLX. A love triangle developed between Angelhawk and
his fellow JLX members Kokoro (Tatsu
Braddock) and Nightcreeper.
(JLX Unleashed#1 (bts)) - Angelhawk was betrayed by his closest
friend, Lord Maxwell Hodge of the
Hellfire League of Injustice, resulting
in an accident that caused Angelhawk to lose his wings. With his metamutant
wings stripped away from him, Angelhawk had to settle for walking the earth
like a normal person.
