HistoryEdit

Shayera Thal Edit

Shayera Thal was a Thanagarian Police officer. She is the illegitimate daughter of Thanagarian Minister For Protection Andar Pul and an underage girl named Shayera Thal, Shayera (who was named after her mother) was raised in a slum in Downside after being abandoned as an infant, but was eventually adopted by her grandfather, who raised her as his own daughter.

As an adult, Shayera became a police officer, one of the Wingmen, and she and her partner Katar Hol werte sent to Earth as goodwill ambassadors following a failed Invasion in which Thanagar had participated. There, they were attached to the Chicago Police Department, but also adopted the identities of two vanished costumed heroes, Katar becoming the new Hawkman and Shayera following in the footsteps of Shiera Sanders as Hawkwoman.

They fought crime together for some time and began to form a deep emotional attachment, but when Katar became the living avatar of a Hawk God, he terminated his relationship with Shayera, who retired from superheroing and became a cop in Detroit. She eventually returned to Thanagar and her former life, joining the Army, but was murdered by the Tamaranean Queen Komand'r (AKA Blackfire) during the Rann-Thanagar War.

Shayera Hol Edit

Shayera Hol was an advance scout for a Thanagarian invasion force.

When J'onn J'onzz gathered Earth's heroes, she answered the call with Flash, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern to join him, Batman and Superman against an alien invasion on Earth. After the defeat of the Imperium invasion, the seven remained a team, the Justice League, dedicated to the defense of Earth against attack both within and without.

To the rest of the League, Shayera was a mysterious woman with angelic wings from another world. She explained that she found herself on Earth when, while pursuing some criminals who were trafficking in forbidden technology, she was accidentally transported by the rays of a dimensional transporter known to her people as a Zeta Beam.

During the course of their adventures, she developed a relationship with the Green Lantern. This relationship quickly blossomed after meeting Katma Tui, one of John Stewart's old flames, and fully became a relationship after he was wounded by one of the Joker's bombs in Las Vegas.

Shayera revealed herself to actually be a military officer of her planet's armed forces, working as an advance scout on Earth. When her people suddenly arrive in force on Earth, she works to help the Thanagarians gain the support of Earth's leaders to protect the Earth from the Thanagarians' mortal enemies, the Gordanians. She is also reunited with her commanding officer and fiancée Hro Talak, creating considerable friction between herself and John Stewart.

Unbeknown to Shayera, the Thanagarians' true intent was to transform Earth into the final link in a hyperspace bypass, destroying Earth, but allowing the Thanagarians to strike a mortal blow at the Gordanian's home world. When Shayera learns of this plan, she betrays her people and informs the Justice League of the Thanagarians' true purpose. The Thanagarian forces are eventually defeated by the League and forced to leave Earth, with Shayera left behind as a traitor.

The other six members of the League take a vote on whether to allow Shayera to stay on the team, but before they can tell her the result, she resigns from the League and departs. She eventually comes to reside with Dr. Fate and his wife Inza in Fate's tower in an effort to decide what to do with her life.

When the corpse of Solomon Grundy was reanimated, Shayera takes the responsibility of killing Grundy, whom she once considered to be a friend. After this, she returns to the League, but it is some time before she is properly re-accepted among its members, particularly Wonder Woman and Batman. After she is allowed to rejoin the Justice League, Shayera reclaims her seat among the seven founding members and changes her costume to be much less militaristic, removing the Thanagarian headdress permanently.

Shayera and Green Lantern (who is by this point in a relationship with League member Vixen) had resolved to be friends for the time being. However, John Stewart once traveled to the future and discovered that the superhero Warhawk is actually his son with Shayera, a revelation he did not immediately share with her until she confronted a stalker in the form of Carter Hall, the would-be Hawkman.
