Comments: Created by David Csicsely.
HawkMan was the product of an article in
Spider-Man Magazine (I#17) called "What If?," in which children drew
their the answer to the question "What if Peter Parker had been bitten
by a radioactive bird instead of a spider?" In HawkMan's case, he
was created by then-13-year-old David Csicely of Avvada, Colorado.
Being that HawkMan is Earth-17819's Peter Parker, it's likely he possessed the same relatives, eye color and hair color that his Earth-616 counterpart had but there was no confirmation of this in-story. Since he existed on an alternate reality, it's equally possible that he did not have the same relatives and since he was never seen outside of his costume, it's possible he had a different hair and eye color. In addition, it was unrevealed if he weighed the same as his Earth-616 counterpart. Given that he was given bird-like powers, it's possible his bones became hollow to better adapt to flight so he might weigh less than his Earth-616 counterpart.
The issue of Spider-Man Magazine featuring HawkMan was not numbered but recent reprints of the comic strips from that issue in Adventures of Spider-Man & Adventures of the X-Men trade paperbacks identified the issue as #17.
