Injustice: Gods Among Us Hawkgirl Character Guide

Hawkgirl also plays an important role in Injustice: Gods Among Us, and she is a playable character, even if she can’t be accessed while playing the video game in Story Mode.

Hawkgirl’s real name is Shiera Hall and she was introduced as a DC comics fictional character in Flash Comics #1, back in 1940.

Hawkgirl is the reincarnation of Chay-Ara, an ancient Egyptian Princess and the lover of Prince Khufu. Both of them were killed by Hath-Set, the priest who led the rebellion against them. Hath-Set use a cursed dagger made of Nth Metal.

The Nth Metal came from a Thanagarian spaceship that crash-landed, and was discovered by Chay-Ara and Khufu, centuries ago. Constant exposure to this special metal, as well as the dagger that killed them, allowed Chay-Ara and Khufu to incarnate multiple times.

In the 20th century Chay-Ara and Khufu incarnated as Carter Hall and Shiera Saunders, also known as Hawkman and Hawkgirl; both of them wearing powerful belts made of Nth Metal.

In Injustice: Gods Among Us, Hawkgirl can be seen during the introductory cutscene fighting several villains and helping Shazam to defeat Black Adam.

When the Justice League members stop Joker and Harley Quinn from detonating the bomb in the park, Hawkgirl and Shazam remain in their universe; being the only two characters that don’t get teleported to the alternate universe.

Nonetheless, Hawkgirl’s duplicate appears multiple times as a member of Superman’s Regime.

Usually she can be seen obeying Superman’s orders.

The Man of Steel sends her to various locations where she fights Joker and Lex Luthor; the latter taking away her Nth belt.

Hawkgirl’s alternate ending reveals the fact that Superman and the Regime brainwashed Hawkgirl, and that Superman killed Hawkman. Shiera Sanders Hall defeats Superman but the Insurgents capture her and take her to prison.

One night Hawkgirl is teleported to a stone made of Nth Metal and she is encased in a invincible armor. At the end of the process Hawkgirl starts to hunt down all those who are guilty for the death of Hawkman.

Costumes and Skins

Hawkgirl can wear more than one alternate costume in Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Being a member of the Regime, players can unlock her Regime Outfit through the Archives.

Hawkgirl’s Blackest Night Costume is unlocked by downloading the Blackest Night Costume Pack 2 DLC, and her Earth 2 Costume, through the Earth 2 Costume Pack DLC.
