“DC”s Legends of Tomorrow” is already full to bursting with superheroes of all stripes. We”ve already seen The Atom, White Canary, Captain Cold, Heatwave, and Firestorm in action. Now Warner Bros. has released our first look* at Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) and Hawgirl (Ciara Renee) in their costumes!
*Technically we”ve seen Hawkgirl fly in the trailer but it was completely CGI and doesn”t count.

There”s a fine line to dance when trying to ground superheroes in “reality” while letting their costumes reflect the camp of their origins. Since “Legends of Tomorrow” has confirmed they”ll be keeping Hawkman”s reincarnation origins, it makes sense to retain some of the trappings of his original life in ancient Egypt, such as the Hawk mask (even though we don't know if the alien 'hawk-like' spaceship will have landed).
Just go with it.
