Crisis Shafts Hawkwoman?

Crisis on Infinite Earths :: And Hawkwoman?

Royally screwed. That was Hawkwoman's fate in Crisis on Infinite Earths, and not because any cosmic multiversal Antimonitor-generated destructive wave attacked her; but because she had no participation in the story at all. Her two or three apparitions were so insignificant and minuscule that she could barely be recognized. She only had one line, a very pathetic one. She was fighting some villain along with member of the Metal Men, Tin.

Even in the superhuge mural by George Pérez and Alex Ross that was later used as a poster and cover to the collected volume, poor Shayera got shafted. Although it is understandable that not everyone can have the spotlight in a shot with hundreds of characters, you would think that the Justice League members would get some decent exposure... not! As you can see, Mera and Batgirl are at least recognizable; but Hawkwoman got so relegated to the background that I don't blame you if you cannot find her.
