Real Name: Unrevealed;
    presumably Haukk

Identity/Class: Terrestrial fauna (hawk) mutate (New Men)

Occupation: Warrior;
    agent of the Man-Beast;

Group Membership: New Men;
    specifically the Man-Beast's New Men
(Barachuudar, Cobrah, Kohbra, Lizhardus, Monck, Phrogg, Pih-Junn, Rhodan, Snakar, Triax the Terrible, Weezhil, others)

Affiliations: Man-Beast, Pih-Junn

Enemies: Astrella Carpenter, David Carter, Jason Grey, Eddie Roberts, Ellie Roberts, Adam Warlock;
    posed as enemies of the Prophet (although they almost certainly knew that he was the Man-Beast)
    possibly the Beyonders, Prime Movers of Tarkus, Sphinxor, Thanos

Known Relatives: None

Aliases: "Evil one" (from Adam Warlock);

Base of Operations: Unrevealed;
    at least formerly various hidden bases on the High Evolutionary's Counter-Earth (presumably at least Wundagore-3);
    formerly somewhere in the
galaxy Dromisana;
    presumably created in the High Evolutionary's Citadel of Science atop Mount Wundagore, Transia;

First Appearance: (Possibly behind-the-scenes, see comments) Thor I#135 (December, 1966);
    (confirmed) Warlock I#1 (August, 1972)

Powers/Abilities: Haukk is apparently a hawk evolved into human form. He possesses a beak-like nose, but he also has a human-like mouth below it.

    He appeared to have glider cloth under his arms, rather than possessing true wings. He could apparently fly nonetheless, as he could take to the air from the ground, rather than just swooping down and gliding. It also could be that he had great leg strength and could leap many feet into their air.
    He could fly with at least one adult (or near-adult) human in his arms.

    While no match for Warlock's strength, he was far stronger than the normal human Dave Carter, and he may have possessed low-level (enhanced human) superhuman strength.

    He had a wrist blaster at least on his left wrist (and presumably on both wrists). The effects of a such a blast were unrevealed as Warlock dodged the one blast he fired.

Height: Unrevealed (approximately 6')
Weight: Unrevealed (approximately 180 lbs.)
Eyes: Unrevealed (dark)
Hair: Red mohawk (possibly feathers)

(Thor I#135 - BTS / Quicksilver I#9 (fb) - BTS) - The Man-Beast used his evolutionary ray (presumably still powered by Isotope C) to create a number of his own New Men (presumably including Haukk), who then engaged Thor and the Evolutionary. 

    Thor subdued the Man-Beast, and Count Tagar and the Knights forced the rest of the Man-Beast's New Men into the Evolutionary's Star Chamber, which then transported them to the "galaxy Dromisana" (see comments).

(Marvel Premiere#1 (fb) - BTS / (Marvel Premiere#2 (fb) - BTS) - The Man-Beast and his New Men (presumably including Haukk) secretly returned to Earth's solar system from the Dromisana to which the High Evolutionary had banished them. The Man-Beast covertly monitored the High Evolutionary's activities. haukk-newmen-ce-swoopprophet

(Marvel Premiere I#1 - BTS) - When the High Evolutionary became exhausted by the process of creating his Counter-Earth and collapsed, the Man-Beast led a group of armored New Men (presumably including Haukk) to invade the Evolutionary's asteroid base, apparently slaying Sir Ram in the process.

     The Man-Beast then used the High Evolutionary's machinery to guide the newly developed humanity on Counter-Earth to commit the violent crimes the High Evolutionary had sought to prevent.

    The High Evolutionary revived and attacked the Man-Beast, who summoned his New Men (apparently including Haukk) to aid him. Though the High Evolutionary stopped them as well, the distraction allowed the Man-Beast to strike down the Evolutionary with a psychic blast. haukk-newmen-ce-punchcarter

    Before the Man-Beast could slay the Evolutionary, however, Him -- the creation of the Enclave whom the Evolutionary had rescued from space --  rushed to attack the New Men. The Man-Beast teleported himself and his followers down to Counter-Earth.

    The Evolutionary considered destroying his now-tainted world, but Him convinced the Evolutionary to allow him to track down the Man-Beast and to save humanity. The Evolutionary gave Him the Soul Gem and sent him to Counter-Earth with the new name of Adam Warlock.

(Marvel Premiere#2 (fb) - BTS) - The Man-Beast and his New Men established the base of Wundagore-3.

(Warlock I#1 - BTS) - The High Evolutionary altered Counter-Earth so that it vibrated on a different plane, a mere micro-second out of sync with the rest of the dimension, so that a rocket from Earth approaching Counter-Earth could neither see nor be seen by Counter-Earth.

(Warlock I#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Man-Beast adopted the form of a human known as the Prophet. He presumably arranged for Haukk and Pih-Junn to publicly attack him in order to earn the sympathy of Adam Warlock.

(Warlock I#1) - Adam Warlock led his friends -- David Carter, Jason Grey, and Eddie & Ellie Roberts -- into the city (Las Vegas or somewhere near the desert) in search of the Man-Beast. There they encountered the Prophet (they were unaware that this was an aspect of the Man-Beast) as he preached on the streets. haukk-newmen-ce-kickgrey

(Warlock I#1) - Suddenly, Astrella Carpenter asked Warlock to save her brother, the prophet, from "those who wait," who stood atop a building, waiting for sunset, which was now occurring. Almost immediately thereafter, Haukk and Pih-Junn approached the edge of the building and then swooped down at the Prophet.

    Trusting Warlock's faith in the Prophet, David Carter leapt in the path of the two "feathered furies" and urged the Prophet to get out of the way. Stating that the boy was not good enough to stop him, Haukk punched Carter out of the way, after which Warlock swatted Pih-Junn back. As Haukk kicked Jason Grey back into Ellie, Warlock replied that he would try his luck again against Haukk. Warlock further commented that while both attackers wore masks, he could sense that they had real beaks underneath.

    Warlock punched Hawk, knocking him off of his feet, but after Warlock turned to speak to the Prophet, Pih-Junn struck him from behind. Haukk complimented Pih-Junn noting that even though Pih-Junn was weaker and less bellicose, ...and Pih-Junn finished his sentence, replying that he was no less effective; Haukk confirmed this, asking if he had other said otherwise. At Haukk's instruction, Pih-Junn held Warlock while Haukk battered him, knocking him to the ground and telling him that they would show him what they had come to show the Prophet: That it was not wise to flaunt the will of the Man-Beast.

    Hearing the Man-Beast's name strengthened Warlock's resolve, and he flew forward and smashed both Haukk and Pih-Junn back. When Pih-Junn suggested that they must employ sterner measures, Haukk assured him that Warlock would soon learn that Haukk's had talons as he fired an energy blast at Warlock. haukk-newmen-ce-punchwarlock

    Narrowly dodging the blast, Warlock replied that even talons could be clipped as he shattered Pih-Junn's blasters (see comments). Cursing Pih-Junn as useless, Haukk grabbing Dave Carter and flew into the air. When Carter shouted to let him go, Haukk complied by hurling him to the ground. Warlock caught and saved Carter, but Haukk and Pih-Junn escaped as he did so.

(Warlock I#1 - BTS) - Warlock subsequently agreed to follow the Prophet to the lair of the Man-Beast where the Prophet pulled off his mask and revealed that he was the Man-Beast.

haukk-newmen-ce-flycarter    As far as I know, there is not anything that indicates that the Man-Beast was able to create additional New Men on his own without the High Evolutionary's evolutionary ray, Haukk was likely created and present in Thor I#135.
    I am listing
Haukk as behind-the-scenes in Thor I#135.

    I'm not sure why Warlock smashed Pih-Junn's wrist-blasters, when it appeared to be Haukk who had blasted at him, but perhaps Pih-Junn was getting ready to blast him, and/or he was closer and easier to get to first. Or maybe the coloring and text was just misleading and that it was Pih-Junn who blasted at him first.

    To the best of my knowledge, Haukk only appears in Warlock I#1, and he is not seen after fleeing from Warlock.

    Assuming Haukk did not perish at some point earlier, he was presumably present on Counter-Earth when Sphinxor and the Prime Movers took the world for the Beyonders' museum circa Marvel Two-In-One I#61-64 (1980)...and when Counter-Earth was apparently destroyed by the Infinity Gauntlet-possessing Thanos (as revealed circa Warlock and the Infinity Watch#4 (1992).

    I am not really certain what the deal is with the Counter-Earth that appeared circa Uncanny Avengers II#1 (2015), but I do not believe Haukk was seen with them.

    The cover scene, with Haukk and Pih-Junn unmasked by Warlock, does not appear in the comic story, but they do represent the unmasked appearances of the characters, and they were therefore used as the images for the characters in their headshots in the OHotMU New Men profile.
