In the original story, archaeologist 'Carter Hall' has a dream he is the ancient Egyptian prince 'Khufu', who has a lover named 'Shiera'.
The next day, Carter meets a woman named Shiera who looks exactly like the woman in his dream. Carter dons the identity of Hawkman and Shiera becomes Carter's girlfriend.
Hawkgirl owes her powers to a belt of 'Nth' metal, a substance native to the planet 'Thanagar'. The metal is psycho-reactive, responding to its bearer's thoughts and in its base form has a number of electromagnetic/gravitational properties, granting the power of flight, superhuman strength, super-acute vision and enhanced healing/regeneration ability.
Hawkgirl's preferred weapons are a spear or mace, but is also depicted using swords, axes, warhammers, shields and other melee weapons.
