1. SECRETS BEYOND THE GRAVE
In the beginning, Hank Hall and his brother Don wore the mantles of Hawk and Dove, respectively, before Don died in action. Dawn Granger became the new Dove due to seemingly accidental circumstances.

2. DIRTY DOPPLEGANGERS
Hawk and Dove believed they were the only avatars of War and Peace, but Condor and Swan, two of the most demented murderers the DCU has ever seen, have made an explosive debut and claim to be avatars, too! Condor and Swan also somehow have intimate information about the origins of the avatar powers--information which Hank and Dawn never knew existed!
3. ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST
