Appearing in "War Games"
Synopsis for "War Games"
As Hawkman fights Xerxes’s warriors at an abandoned hockey rink, Xerxes uses the fight to showcase Hawkman’s Nth Metal to potential buyers. After a difficult fight, Hawkman defeats four of his five enemies, and only Ironside, the leader of the hunters who attacked him earlier, remains. Ironside has the advantage, saying that his henchmen were merely weakening Hawkman so that he could be easily defeated. If he defeats Hawkman, he will earn his freedom. Despite this, Hawkman defeats him.
Hawkman demands Xerxes that he be released, but Xerxes replies that he will keep fighting or Emma will be hurt. Hawkman’s next fight will be against Xerxes himself. As they fight, Xerxes gets the upper hand and Hawkman is on the brink of exhaustion. Xerxes plans to call off the auction and keep the Nth Metal to himself. But while Xerxes gloats, Hawkman counterattacks and defeats him.
With Xerxes defeated, Hawkman breaks the Ironside’s armor. He hurls Ironside into the the ceiling, causing an explosion that allows Hawkman to escape with Emma. As Hawkman and Emma flee, Xerxes promises that he and Hawkman will meet again.
The next day, Hawkman returns to the fighting place, hoping to find clues about the buyers and how did they find out about the Nth Metal, but the place is empty.
Carter goes to a motel where he and Emma have been hiding. He booked a passage for them in a freighter, hoping to throw potential enemies off their trail.
Meanwhile, at a hotel room, an unidentified man who watched Hawkman’s fight with Xerxes talk with a mysterious contact, reporting Xerxes’s failure and request to contact a mysterious party called the Kherubim Mongrel. During their conversation, it is revealed that many human parties are aware and searching for Hawkman’s Nth Metal.
As Carter and Emma arrive at the docks, an assassin named Pike prepares to attack.
- No special notes.
- Xerxes states that he will send Hawkman to "Chinvat". In Zoroastrianism, an ancient Iranian religion, the Chinvat Bridge is the bridge of judgement that seperates the land of the living from the land of the dead.
