Genre:
detective-mystery
Characters:
The Hawk [T. James Harrington II] (former football player and wealthy heir, introduction); Deputy Inspector Pat Doyle; Link (Hawk's ally); Rollo (Hawk's ally); Moore; un-named criminal (villain)
Synopsis:
When Harrington overhears the Police talking about some mysterious crimes, he dons a suit, throws an over-sized hankerchief over his head and dons one taloned glove. As the Hawk, he captures the man who had beat and robbed Old Moore of the charity donation to the city orphanage, then takes him back to his lair, where his allies deliver the crook into Police custody, while the Hawk taunts Doyle with a letter.

Indexer Notes

Only appearance. This character was Quality's first masked hero (Brenner's The Clock preceded the Hawk at another company, but at Quality, the Clock came one issue after the Hawk).
