Darkhawk Reclaims His Destiny As The Hero's 30th Anniversary Kicks Off

Darkhawk Reclaims His Destiny As The Hero's 30th Anniversary Kicks Off


Jay Cochran - January 14, 2021
One of Marvel’s most popular 90s creations, Darkhawk will return in April in a special giant-sized celebration issue. Honoring the iconic hero’s 30th anniversary, DARKHAWK: HEART OF THE HAWK will feature three spectacular tales from all-star creative teams including Darkhawk’s creators: writer Danny Fingeroth and artist Mike Manley. This action-packed issue will celebrate Darkhawk’s legacy, explore his defining eras, and set up the hero up for his bright Marvel Comics future.

When teenager Chris Powell discovered a mysterious amulet, he was transformed into the armored spacefaring hero known as Darkhawk. Now, Danny Fingeroth and Mike Manley reunite to revisit the beginning of Darkhawk’s saga.

“It’s an understatement to say that I’m thrilled to team up once again with the great Mike Manley to reveal an untold tale of Darkhawk’s earliest days,” Fingeroth said. “Hawkamaniacs are always asking me when we’ll be returning to the character we established, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to once again tap into the Darkhawk magic with Mike. Hope everybody enjoys this new tale of the high-flying, amulet-wielding hero!”

Next up, writer Dan Abnett, known for penning Darkhawk’s years as a cosmic adventurer during his “War of Kings” epic, returns to Marvel Comics with a thrilling story, featuring art by Andrea Di Vito (Annihilation).

“When I was asked to write a story celebrating Darkhawk’s thirtieth (!) anniversary, I was happy to oblige - especially as it was chance to revisit the cosmic part of his career when I put him out among the stars with the likes of Nova and the Guardians,” Abnett said. “And I enjoyed it more than I imagined - I had forgotten what a great, lonely, determined hero he was. I also love the fact that this special reflects the different ages of Darkhawk’s thirty year odyssey, bringing back creators who created him and helped shape him through every stage of his adventures. He may be turning thirty, but it’s been quite a ride and, for Darkhawk, the future is just beginning…”

Finally, Kyle Higgins (Rise of Ultraman) sets the stage for Darkhawk’s future adventures.

“As someone slightly newer to Darkhawk — certainly compared to Danny, Mike and Dan — I’m incredibly honored and excited for the opportunity to build a story that both celebrates what Danny, Mike, Dan and so many other fantastic creators have built over the last thirty years... while also setting course for the future,” Higgins said.

From street-level vigilante to cosmic defender, Darkhawk has proven to be one of Marvel’s most unpredictable and resilient heroes. See what’s next to come for this beloved character when DARKHAWK: HEART OF THE HAWK #1 hits stands in April.

Speaking of Darkhawk I never even took my ML figure out of the box yet. Him and Angela are still hanging up on the wall. Talk about no love.

Ah yes Darkhawk! I am going to need this , Darkhawk is/was one of my favorite Marvel Heroes, he's so underated it's a real travesty he gets hardly any love. I still remember reading all of his original books back to back after I was introduced to him by a friend when he first appeared and always loving this character so much. I wish that because of this 30th celebration Legends would give us some more Darkhawk associated characters Lodestone?, Evilhawk?, Portal?, Savage Steel, Dreamkiller? ha I doubt all that.

Wow I'm pretty excited for this. Like when was the last time Darkhawk got his own standalone issue? Was it like the mid-90s. Since their going back and giving popular 90s characters their own issues. It would be cool to see someone like Night thrasher to get his own mini series.

He had a 4-issue limited series associated with the War of Kings event in 2009, but yeah its been awhile.

He had a mini-series in 2018 which was part of the Infinity Countdown event and he has had a couple of one-shots
