“Hulk,” “Venom” & “Guardians of Infinity” Get Totally Awesome Hip-Hop Variant Covers.

Today, the CW has provided a first look at the next set of heroes to soon debut in DC Comics’s ever-growing and interconnected television universe: Hawkman and Hawkgirl.Marvel Comics debuted new hip-hop variant covers by Mike Choi, Mahmud Asrar and Marco Rudy for three upcoming series — “Guardians of Infinity” #1, “The Totally Awesome Hulk” #1 and “Venom: Space Knight” #1 — on Uproxx.

The Thanagarian duo will first appear on episodes of the CW’s “The Flash” (season premiere: Oct. 6) and “Arrow,” (season premiere: Oct. 7) before flying into a more prominent role on yet another CW/DC show. “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” will assemble characters spun out of the Arrow and Flash universe, including the formerly Black and now White Canary (Caity Lotz), the Atom (Brandon Routh), Firestorm (Robbie Amell and Victor Garber) and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and will debuting later this season. Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders (played by Ciara Renee) made a brief appearance in “The Flash’s” Season 1 finale, and Hawkman/Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel) will make his CW debut this fall.

Hawkman, aka Carter Hall, is the latest reincarnation of an Egyptian Prince who is fated to reincarnate throughout time for centuries along with his soul mate, Kendra Saunders (aka Hawkgirl). We could’ve done an homage to every single Tribe Called Quest album, you know what I”m saying?” “As the project moved along, we shifted gears. [Assistant Editor] Chris Robinson, who assisted me and Rickey Purdin throughout the process, hatched a lot of ideas that made the cut, some of which came in discussions with artists. But given how special effects-heavy “The Flash” was in its first season — in order to depict a hero and villain who have super-speed, and Atom’s flight — we might well see Hawkman and Hawkgirl take the skies frequently. One big difference between the two winged warriors is that Hawkman has been able to retain and remember all the memories from his 5,000 years of past lives, whereas Hawkgirl will not. “You’ll get a clear picture of what her origin story is and you’ll actually get a chance to see it,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told The Hollywood Reporter at Comic-Con. “Fans of the comics will recognize an awful lot. In addition to Renée and Hentschel, Legends of Tomorrow also stars Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory, Heat Wave), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/Firestorm), Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter), and Franz Drameh (Jay Jackson), who will work together as a united group of heroes and villains to take down the immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).

I was looking at the cover for Vince Staples’ Summertime ’06 and suddenly I saw ‘Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur’ materializing in the hazy pattern,” he added. Getting to know her, there’s going to be a lot happening leading up to the crossover, which is serving as a [quasi] pilot for Legends.” The Flash season two premieres Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. and Arrow season four premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. on The CW. Renee’s helmet looks straight out of Bruce Timm’s Justice League cartoon that frequently stared Hawkgirl, while Hentschel’s helmet looks a little Wolverine-esque. (Comic-book Wolverine, that is; the Hugh Jackman movies have never had the guts to try the Wolvie suit, although it did get a deleted-scenes treatment in the most recent Wolverine movie).
