Event Timeline


A member of Honor Guard during the 1980s.


  • His two large wings provide Stormhawk with the power of flight.
  • He also possesses some form of electrically based power that mimics or sources directly from lightning storms.


  • According to backstory material presented in the Dark Age Story Arc, he is a relative of E.A.G.L.E. boss, Flannery Hawk.
  • When in human form, his wings become designs running down his costume's sleeves, suggesting that the costume is part of the transformation process to a super-human.
  • He was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and parlayed a talent for genetic research into a notable amount of money - enough for a custom-built house on the outskirts of Astro City.

Speculations, Theories

  • When he died, a bird skeleton was floating next to a human skeleton. This suggests that Christopher's transformation to Stormhawk was based on merging with a bird, possibly the hawk he had named Lightning.
