While I'm vouching for Green Arrow's joining of Justice League I also have another request. This time, I ask will Hawkman join the upcoming Justice League rebirth? Green Arrow and Hawkman are two of my favorite members from older Justice Leagues and I want to see them both join the roster. I can picture the roster being Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Green Lantern (Baz), Green Lantern (Cruz), Cyborg, Green Arrow, and Hawkman. Another reason I want Hawkman on the team is because there are no plans for Hawkman as of yet and Hawkman is too important to be left out of the DC Rebirth mythos. A third reason is because I want to see Green Lantern, Green Arrow, and Hawkman work together. So please, DC, ADD GREEN ARROW AND HAWKMAN TO THE JUSTICE LEAGUE REBIRTH IN THE FUTURE!!!

I think before he is added to the League again Hawkman needs another overhaul, strip away the awful armour and tinsel and revert to the more traditional look. There is fantastic milage to be had out of the policeman from Thanagar studying earth's society and culture, and you can do something with Hawkman that is rather intelligent while keeping the traditional tropes like the mace and savage combat. DC have made the same mistakes with the 2011 reboot, reworking their characters to be far more violent and ignorant than they were ever intended to be.

If I had any say in the matter I would bring in Green Arrow yes, but give him a wariness of the League. He simply has to be different to Marvels Hawkeye. And the way to do that is to have him be the League's outsider of sorts, a man who is with them but is his own man. Not quite the unquestioning team player that Green Lantern or Aquaman are...
