The Ultimate College Packing Checklist Part 1

Use this checklist to make sure you have everything you need for your first year at college. These are just suggestions; you should adapt this list to suit your own situation.

Justice of Emmett Till :Federal probe of Emmett Till’s 1955 murder reopened¬†


She said the quiet reactivation followed shortly after the blockbuster 2017 book, ‚ÄúThe Blood of Emmett Till,‚ÄĚ said white woman Carolyn Donham admitted she lied when she testified Till grabbed her around her waist and made sexual remarks.

‚ÄúThat part‚Äôs not true,‚ÄĚ Donham reportedly told author Timothy B. Tyson in a 2008 interview included in the book.

Fourteen-year-old Emmett Till was sound asleep when two white men dragged him out of bed waving a flashlight and gun.The assailants beat Emmett to a bloody pulp, gouged out one of his eyes and shot him in the head. They strapped a 75-pound cotton-gin fan to his body with barbed wire before dumping it in the Tallahatchie River.The black teen was brutally murdered in the early hours of Aug. 28, 1955 ‚ÄĒ all for whistling at a white woman during a time when the segregated South was deep in the throes of Jim Crow and the grip of racial injustice.Emmett‚Äôs killers got off at trial. But on Thursday, with the 63rd anniversary of his death approaching, it emerged that the Department of Justice has¬†reopened its investigation into his slaying after receiving ‚Äúnew information.Two days later, a group of boys who were fishing saw two feet sticking out of the water, leading cops to pull out Emmett‚Äôs decomposing body.He had been so badly battered that he was unidentifiable ‚ÄĒ save for his father‚Äôs silver ring still on his hand.Emmett‚Äôs murder was thrust into the national spotlight when Mobley, his mother, insisted his body be displayed in a glass-topped casket at his funeral Sept. 3 on Chicago‚Äôs South Side.

Mamie Till Mobley weeps at her son’s funeral in Chicago on Sept. 6, 1955Mamie Till Mobley weeps at her son's funeral in Chicago on Sept. 6, 1955.

‚ÄúEmmett was (Till-Mobley‚Äôs) only child. That was her baby. She put all of her blood, sweat and tears into preserving Emmett‚Äôs memory. It’s important that people never forget,‚ÄĚ she told The News.In his book, Tyson said Donham gave him a transcript of her unpublished memoir, ‚ÄúMore Than a Wolf Whistle: The Story of Carolyn Bryant Donham.‚ÄĚ


The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till

 2005 ‧ History/Documentary ‧ 1h 10m

Image result for The Untold Story of Emmett Louis TillThis documentary presents a sobering reminder of the racial tensions that gripped America not so long ago. In Mississippi during the ’50s, a black teenager named Emmett Louis Till, who is from Chicago and visiting his great-uncle, whistles at a white woman in public. Not too long afterward, he is kidnapped and murdered. The filmmakers revisit the public outrage that follows, revealing Till’s family as being particularly brave for standing up to white racism when it was clearly unsafe to do so.
Initial release: August 17, 2005
Director: Keith BeauchampProducer: Keith Beauchamp
Cast: Mamie Till
Emmett Till; Right, Carolyn Bryant with her two sons Roy Jr. and Lamar

Devery S. Anderson‚Äôs masterful¬†Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement,¬†which was published in 2015 by the University Press of Mississippi. (Last week, John Edgar Wideman‚Äôs meditation on Till,¬†Writing to Save a Life,¬†was named a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award.) Still, no author save Tyson has ever interviewed Carolyn Bryant Donham. (Her ex-husband and brother-in-law are both dead.) ‚ÄúThat case went a long way toward ruining her life,‚ÄĚ Tyson contends, explaining that she could never escape its notoriety. His compelling book is suffused with information that Donham, over coffee and pound cake, shared with him in what he calls a ‚Äúconfessional‚ÄĚ spirit.

Carolyn, in fact, had approached Tyson because she was writing her memoirs. (Her manuscript is in the Southern Historical Collection at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill library archives and will not be available for public view until 2036, according to Tyson.) Her daughter had admired Tyson‚Äôs earlier book,¬†Blood Does Sign My Name,¬†about another racism-inspired murder committed by someone known to Tyson‚Äôs family. And Tyson himself, a Southern preacher‚Äôs son, says that when he sat down with Carolyn, she ‚Äúcould have fit in at a Tyson family reunion‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒeven at its local church. Clearly, he observed, she had been altered by the social and legal advances that had overtaken the South in the intervening half century. ‚ÄúShe was glad things had changed [and she] thought the old system of white supremacy was wrong, though she had more or less taken it as normal at the time.‚ÄĚ She didn‚Äôt officially repent; she was not the type to join any racial reconciliation groups or to make an appearance at the new¬†Emmett Till Interpretive Center, which attempts to promote understanding of the past and point a way forward.

My Superman Voice, Ranked Worst To Best.

Image result for superman

Superman¬†is a fictional¬†superhero¬†created by writer¬†Jerry Siegel¬†and artist¬†Joe Shuster. He first appeared in¬†Action Comics¬†#1, a comic magazine published by¬†Detective Comics[a]¬†on April 18, 1938.He subsequently appeared in various radio serials,¬†newspaper strips, television shows, theatrical movies, and video games. With this success, Superman popularized superhero archetype.Superman was born on the planet¬†Krypton. Soon after he was born, Krypton was destroyed in a natural cataclysm, but his father saved his life by sending him to Earth in a small spaceship, alone. His spaceship landed in the American countryside, where he was discovered and adopted by a¬†farmer and his wife. They named him¬†Clark Kent¬†and imbued him with a strong moral compass. Early in his childhood, Clark developed various¬†superhuman¬†abilities, which, upon reaching maturity, he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity. To protect his privacy, Clark changes into a colorful costume and uses the alias “Superman” when fighting crime.

15 MARK VALLEYImage result for MARK VALLEY

Fringe, where he played an FBI agent with shady allegiances, and Human Target, a loose adaptation of the DC comic about a man who takes on the identities of other people.

Valley’s turn as the Man of Steel, however, was underwhelming. As part of DC Animation’s adaptation of the classic Frank Miller comic The Dark Knight Returns, Superman plays a pivotal role in the film’s climax.

14¬†JERRY O‚ÄôCONNELLImage result for JERRY O√ʬĬôCONNELL as supermanImage result for JERRY O√ʬĬôCONNELL as superman


Jerry O’Connell has certainly had an unusual career path. He originally came to prominence in the 1986 classic Stand By Me, where he played Vern Tessio, the chubby, timid member of the movie’s quartet of young boys.  Man of Steel, the role still doesn’t fit O’Connell quite right. It’s possible he could grow into the part, but at the moment, he’s a decidedly minor entry in the pantheon of Superman voices.

13 YURI LOWENTHALImage result for YURI LOWENTHAL as supermanImage result for YURI LOWENTHAL as superman

Based on the classic DC Comics where young Clark Kent has future adventures with the titular superteam, the show lasted only two seasons before being unceremoniously canceled. Bizarrely for a DC show, you‚Äôd have trouble even finding a devoted cult following associated with it.Heroes¬†adventures traditionally featured Superboy, a young Clark Kent who had not yet become Superman. DC, tied up in complicated litigation at the time, were reluctant to use the name ‚ÄúSuperboy,‚ÄĚ so¬†Legion of Super Heroes¬†ended up featuring a very, very young ‚ÄúSuperman.‚ÄĚ


12 ROGER ROSEImage result for ROGER ROSE as supermanImage result for ROGER ROSE as superman

The series teamed Batman with a new DC compatriot every week in a decidedly hard break from the Bruce Timm/Paul Dini era of DC Animated Series, and has been a surprisingly enduring success.. Ironically, the plot involves Superman being exposed to Red Kryptonite and temporarily turning evil, and it’s as this more sinister version of the character that Rose really shines.

11 DAVID KAYEImage result for DAVID KAYEas superman

David Kaye is one of the most prolific voice actors in the world right now. He’s played everyone from The X-Men’s Professor X to GI Joe’s General Hawk. Kaye is a voiceover renaissance man, which is best embodied by his work in the Transformers franchise, where he holds the distinction of being the only actor to regularly portray both Optimus Prime (in Transformers Animated) and Megatron (in about a half dozen series, most notably the smooth, idiosyncratic Megatron of Beast Wars).


10 JASON LEWISFile:Jason Lewis.PNG


When Justice League Action was announced, much fanfare was made over the well-publicized fact that Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill would both reprise their roles as Batman and the Joker, respectively. Jason Lewis took on the iconic role with big red shoes to fill. Lewis has acquitted himself well; he hasn’t exactly reinvented the Kryptonian wheel, but he’s taken some of the strongest aspects of the earlier vocal interpretations of the character and landed on something approaching a greatest hits version of the last son of Krypton’s voice.

9 ADAM BALDWINImage result for ADAM BALDWIN as superman

Baldwin is known almost universally as Jayne Cobb from Joss Whedon’s dearly departed western sci-fi series Firefly. Baldwin played the murderous, dim-witted mercenary Jayne with a sort of puppy dog obliviousness that made him endearing, if not exactly lovable.Baldwin’s voiced Superman a few times, but the most notable performance was in DC’s first foray into direct to video, adult-targeted movies; Superman: Doomsday.

8¬†KYLE MACLACHLANImage result for √ā¬†KYLE MACLACHLAN as supermanImage result for √ā¬†KYLE MACLACHLAN as superman

Featured in an adaptation of Darwyn Cooke’s immortal The New Frontier, MacLachlan’s Superman exists in the 1950’s, as the iconic paragon of truth, justice, and the American way. MacLachlan might not have been a great fit for a more modern take of the character, but he’s just about perfect as the Silver age iteration.

7 ALAN TUDYKImage result for ALAN TUDYK as superman

He very nearly stole the show in Star Wars: Rogue One as K-2SO, Cassian Andor’s loyal but blunt droid.Tudyk seemed an unusual choice for Superman when he was announced for Justice League: War. And yet he ended up embodying the slightly younger, less open version of Superman perfectly.

6 NOLAN NORTHImage result for NOLAN NORTH As superman

Image result for NOLAN NORTH As superman


Naturally, North has portrayed Superman more than once, though the most notable iteration is likely the version from Young Justice. Controversially, this iteration of Superman is reluctant to form a relationship with Conner Kent, a version of Superboy who is a clone of both the Man of Steel and his greatest enemy, Lex Luthor (North also voiced Superboy, because of course he did).

5 BUD COLLYERImage result for BUD COLLYER As superman


Bud Collyer set the tone for not just Superman, but virtually all superhero voice acting. Collyer began portraying the Man of Steel in the 1940s in radio dramasAmong his great innovations was his decision to change the inflection of his voice between Clark Kent and Superman. It seems like a simple enough notion today, but it was a brilliant bit of acting that still gets used to this very day.

4 CHRISTOPHER MCDONALDImage result for CHRISTOPHER MCDONALD As supermanImage result for CHRISTOPHER MCDONALD As supermanImage result for CHRISTOPHER MCDONALD As superman

Sci-fi fans likely remember him most fondly as Lieutenant Richard Castillo on the classic¬†Star Trek: The Next Generation¬†episode ‚ÄúYesterday‚Äôs Enterprise.‚ÄĚ To the average viewer, though, McDonald will likely always be Shooter McGavin, the obnoxious, sexist jerk who serves as Adam Sandler‚Äôs primary rival in¬†Happy Gilmore.¬†McDonald recurred as Jor-El, Superman‚Äôs biological father, in the classic¬†Superman: The Animated Series. Appropriately, he also portrayed an older version of Superman himself on the futuristic series¬†Batman Beyond.

3 DANNY DARKImage result for DANNY DARK  As superman

Dark’s turn as the Man of Steel came in one of the most warmly remembered iterations of the DC Universe: Super Friends. The Hanna-Barbera animated series (which, stunningly, ran for 12 years) seems quaint and simplistic today, but for many kids it was the first time they got to see their favorite DC heroes interacting on screen. It’s still impressive how much of the DCU Super Friends actually utilized over its run. Dark’s Superman was the prototypically deep-voiced, paternalistic superhero. It defined a lot about Superman for a generation.

After the unprecedented success of¬†Batman: The Animated Series, Bruce Timm and his collaborators turned their attention toward reinvigorating the Man of Steel in similar fashion.¬†Daly’s¬†greatest innovation was perhaps that there was very little difference in how he voiced Superman and Clark Kent. The latter was never portrayed as a Christopher Reeve-like bumbling nerd; this version of Clark was self assured and competent. Daly‚Äôs Superman set the template for how the character has been voiced ever since.


Daly felt as essential to the animated version of Superman as Kevin Conroy did to Batman. Whatever the reasons for Daly’s omission, it felt like a massive mistake.And then we heard George Newbern.

Superman Performances Worst and Best


Superman, the caped crusader fighting for truth, justice, and the American way. With another DC franchise revolving around Superman now officially up and running, it’s time to look back at the brave men who have donned the Superman cape, or the Clark Kent glasses, and see which performances hold up best.



8 Kirk AlynImage result for Kirk Alyn  Worst

1948: Superman

1950: Atom Man vs. Superman

Kirk Alyn’s Superman was a bit cheesy.

. Kirk Alyn played the role in a light-hearted manner, with his version of Clark Kent being particularly childish

.7 Superman Returns, which casts Brandon Routh as the favorite son of Krypton and a gleefully campy Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.

Brandon Routh in 'Superman Returns' worst

Routh has the right look for the role, but his performance didn’t amount to much but a disappointing imitation of Reeve that was lost in this mess of a film. While the script took some unfortunate liberties with the character, Routh himself played it safe,

6 Dean Cain, the star of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, was hardly a bad Superman, but he could never make the hero, once suited up, of any interest. Cain’s Superman was a smiling face and not much else, while the true highlight of his performance was his awkward earnestness as Clark Kent.

5Tyler Hoechlin Related imageworst

2016: Supergirl

Tyler Hoechlin has appeared in a few episodes of¬†Supergirl.¬†He was perfect for the role ‚Äď at least for a TV show where Superman is more of a supporting character.

He falls more into the Dean Cain style of Superman being a quietly confident and more human version of Superman.

4Tom Welling best

Smallville, Tom Welling

Tom Welling turned in more hours as Superman than any other actor on this list, though the series he starred in for 10 seasons and 218 episodes generally went out of its way to separate Clark Kent from the iconic hero he would someday become.

Smallville to visually show the ways in which Clark was maturing into the selfless hero he will one day become.

Welling managed to make Clark Kent interesting for 10 years, an impressive feat when some actors can’t even do it for one two-hour film.

3George Reeves Best

1951: Superman & The Mole Men

1952 ‚Äď 1958: Adventures of Superman

Even his Clark Kent was interesting ‚ÄĒ a competent, more confident version of the mild altar ego we‚Äôre now used to.George Reeves managed to make Clark Kent the central figure in¬†The Adventures of Superman¬†and its seven series run on television. Rather than being mild-mannered, this version of Clark Kent was Superman but in normal clothes.But sadly committed suicide in 1959.

Henry Cavill Superman DC Extended Universe

2Henry Cavill Best

Superman (Henry Cavill) is portrayed true to the spirit of the character as seen from the comics as well as how his legacy as the hero fighting for truth, justice and the American way really translates well in modern cinematic form.

Christopher Reeve is quite possibly the most beloved Superman ever to grace our screens. He just epitomises the character so well. Some of the movies were terrible, featuring impressible shit scripts. But one thing remained consistent throughout the first four films and that was Reeve’s commitment to the role. He truly embodied the role better than anyone else and tops our list for the best to worst Superman actors.

Christopher Reeve, whose unfortunately short career was defined by his starring role in Richard Donner’s Superman franchise. Beyond possessing the perfect look for the hero, Reeve can’t help but exude a likability that makes the audience and citizens of Metropolis alike immediately on the side of this intergalactic protector.

He still feels recognizably human when he allowed his anger and passion to shine through his still, sculpted exterior. His Clark Kent was hapless but never cartoonish, a nerdier complement to the good-hearted hero that still defines our perception of DC’s greatest hero.

Donna Troy, alias¬†Wonder Girl¬†was created to be a playmate for the young¬†Wonder Woman¬†by the sorceress¬†Magala, who used a magical mirror to create a duplicate of Diana, though with her own personality. She was abducted by¬†Dark Angel¬†who mistook her for the real Diana, and cursed her to experience a cycle of countless tragic lives, given the name Donna Troy as a cruel joke to her origins. But it would not be until the intervention of Wonder Woman,¬†Hippolyta, and¬†the Flash¬†years later that she would learn this.In one of the lives she ended up living, Donna was orphaned by her birth mother,¬†Dorothy Hinckley, a dying unwed teen who had given her up for adoption. After Donna’s adoptive father Carl Stacey was killed in a work-related accident, her adoptive mother¬†Fay Stacey¬†gave her up for adoption again, unable to raise the toddler because of mounting expenses. Donna remembered being rescued from a fire by the goddess¬†Rhea¬†who, being one of the mythological Titans, brought her to¬†New Cronus¬†and raised her as one of twelve¬†Titan Seeds, orphans from various planets who would have died if Rhea had not saved them. Each one was given the name of a place that worshiped the Titans, and Donna was given the last name of Troy in homage to the ancient city. She was returned to Earth at age thirteen, where her memories of New Cronus were erased until such a time that she would return and take her place among the Seeds as gods.

The exo-mantle also possessed a personal force field for protection against physical impact and energy attacks. The main weapons were twin maser units that fired energy blasts with pinpoint accuracy; however, it seems that Donna did not undergo the surgical procedure to attain the instant mastery of maser control that the other Darkstars had, and had a split-second delay in reaction time when wearing the less powerful deputy version of the exo-mantle. A powerful shoulder mounted cannon complemented the maser system of the Darkstars’ exo-mantle. With the exo-mantle, one could achieve high speeds during flight, all the while protected from wind friction by the force field. Since leaving the Darkstars, Donna no longer possesses the exo-mantle.

White Martian M'gannImage result for Miss Martian

Her White Martian form.


The origin others know: there are two different races of Martians, distinguished by their differing world-views. The Green Martians are peaceful philosophers, while the White Martians are vicious warriors.

When the White Martians began massacring their Green cousins, M’gann’s parents sent her on a rocket to the¬†Vega¬†system to escape the civil war. M’gann learned that another Green Martian refugee,¬†J’onn J’onzz, had escaped the White Martian tyranny, establishing himself on¬†Earth, and came to Earth herself.

While almost correct, this leaves out at least one significant detail, M’gann’s true form is that of a White Martian, creatures believed to live only for war and conquest. Questioned on whether or not she¬†was¬†actually a White Martian, M’gann said it was a “long story”.

Whatever her true origins might be, M’gann eventually came to Earth along with her parents. Details of this period are sketchy, but it is known that M’gann’s parents, along with dozens of other White Martians, were captured by the United States government, many of whom, including M’gann’s parents were subsequently executed.[1][2]¬†After separating from her parents, M’gann adopted two new names during her time on this world: “Megan Morse”, the English transliteration of her Martian name, and “Miss Martian”, her chosen superhero identity.

Raven is the daughter and herald of the demon Trigon and a member of the Teen Titans.


Raven was born of the demon¬†Trigon, a demonic entity who had conquered many worlds and fathered¬†many sons. Raven was his first and only daughter. Trigon murdered the women who birthed his sons, however he allowed Raven’s mother¬†Arella¬†to live, believing that Raven needed to be raised by a human in order to help her reshape the under-realms in his image. Afraid of what Trigon had in store for her daughter, Raven’s mother took her daughter and fled to the dimension of¬†Azarath, which was beyond Trigon’s reach. Over time, the monks of that realm trained Raven to control her powers and overcome her father’s influence. When Trigon finally found her again, Raven fled from Azarath to Earth in order to protect her mother and teachers. Eventually she was found by the immortal¬†Phantom Stranger¬†on Trigon’s behalf. When she returned to Trigon’s realm time itself flowed differently, and it was revealed that Trigon was impressed by her natural abilities, allowing her to have free will and shape her own destiny. He gave her a seat at his throne.

Raven, also known as Rachel Roth, is a superhero with dark magic powers. Her strong personal motivations and desire to see good conflict with her heritage, as her father is a powerful demon named Trigon who wants to enslave the planet. Her mother is a human woman named Arella who was living on Earth at the time of conception, later to relocate to the mystical realm of Azarath. At all times, Raven must keep her emotions in check lest she risk unleashing the terrible might within. Despite this, she has still managed to find a second family in her friends who love and accept her regardless of her troubled past. She is a regular member of the Teen Titans, and has also been a member of the Sentinels of Magic.

Raven, or Rachel Roth, has been a prominent member of the¬†Teen Titans. Raven is a tele-empathetic, she can teleport, and send out her¬†Soul-Self, which can fight physically, manifest as a force field, manipulate objects and others as with telekinesis, as well as act as Raven’s eyes and ears away from her body.

A dark, moody character, Raven is the half-breed daughter of a human mother named¬†Angela Roth¬†(also known as Arella) and the demon overlord¬†Emperor Trigon. Raven was born and raised in the pacifistic reality called¬†Azarath¬†by the Azarathian monks, after her mother ran away from home, which was possibly in¬†Gotham City, and joined a cult (possibly the¬†Church of Blood), where she was raped by Trigon. In Azarath, Raven was taught to “control her emotions” in order to suppress and control her inherited demonic powers by¬†Azar, the founder and leader of Azarath.

Natasha Irons is the daughter of John Henry’s brother, Clay, and Clay’s wife Blondel. She is introduced in the first issue of Steel’s solo series, where she is initially portrayed as being 13. Like the rest of her family, she knew about Steel’s secret identity all along. Contrasting sharply with her brother Jemahl, Natasha is shown to be very level headed and practical. By issue #14, she is shown to be working (presumably as an intern) for a U.S. Senator. She appears to have aged forward to be about 16 somehow. Nat is a supporting character throughout Louise Simonson’s run on the series. She is kidnapped by Hazard and Steel has to rescue her. She also uses the drug Tar to help fight at her uncle’s side briefly. She is later kidnapped by the villain Plasmus and apparently kills him by shattering once Steel froze the villain (although he later turns up alive). Natasha was devastated at the loss of her beloved great-grandmother, Bess Irons, but is the only one of her family who stays with Steel when he moves to Jersey City (see the¬†Steel¬†entry for more details of the Irons family).

With Christopher Priest at the helm of¬†Steel¬†starting with #34, Nat was radically altered. She was transformed into a more stereotypical modern teenager with a flippant attitude. All trace of her previous work for a U.S. Senator was never referenced. During this time she also meets and befriends a teen named Paul, whom she dubs “Boris”. Her father also makes a return as the villain Crash. When an assassin named Skorpio poisons Nat, Crash has to turn himself in so that he can give a blood transfusion and save his daughter. He is never seen nor heard from again.

Nat later goes with Steel to Metropolis when he opens up Steelworks there. She becomes his assistant, even reprogramming¬†Superman’s Kryptonian robot¬†Kelex¬†to speak hip hop slang. For a time she is dating a local boy, Boris.

Powers and abilities



  • As Starlight, Natasha is able to fly, exert superhuman strength, and is more durable. Her fists also emit large flashes of light. She also can focus her light into forcefields, and trap her opponents within them, such as when she encased¬†Blockbuster¬†in a light energy field to prevent him from moving.
  • As Vaporlock, Natasha has the ability to transform her body into a gaseous substance.


  • Natasha’s “Steel” armor boosts her strength to super-human levels, and rockets in her boots allow her to fly. The armor can grow to heights of up to 60 feet, and it is equipped with limited-technomorphing abilities able to shift energy guns and projectile weaponry from its liquid-metal.
  • Natasha’s main weapon is her hammer, which has inertial dampeners that cause the hammer’s force to increase exponentially (the farther it is thrown, the harder it hits). The hammer can fire electromagnetic pulses and generate powerful electric and magnetic fields at Natasha’s command. When the hammer is placed on the ground, it connects with the Earth’s magnetic field and cannot be moved except by Natasha or someone with similar DNA, such as her uncle John Henry Irons.

Hank Hall and Holly Granger have operated as Hawk, while Don Hall and Dawn Granger have operated as Dove. Sasha Martens and Wiley Wolverman also used the names, but were not related to the Lords of Chaos and Order.

Henry Hall is the son of renowned Judge,¬†Irwin Hall, and had a brother named¬†Don. Hank and Don discovered a plot in which a criminal named Dargo planned to murder their father, to remove any chance of serving time in prison. They tracked Dargo to his hideout but got locked in a room, where the boys started arguing until Don shouted “I wish I had the power to get us out of here right now and go save dad!”. At that moment a flash of light appeared and a voice said that if they wish for power, all they need to say were the magic words to transform themselves into the Avatars of War and Peace. Henry became Hawk; an Avatar of War, and Donald became Dove; an Avatar of Peace.

During the Crisis, Dawn Granger was in London with her mother. Her mother, a diplomatic courier, was at the American embassy when terrorists took it over, and threatened to blow it up. Unable to get help from the police, who were too busy with the panic caused by the Crisis, Dawn was contacted by voices that offered her the power to deal with the problem herself. She agreed, was transformed into Dove, and easily subdued the terrorists.

While she initially assumed she was one of a number of Doves, she later learned that the other Dove had died during the Crisis, and was concerned that he had died because she had taken his power. She traveled to the memorial service for the fallen heroes, where she managed to identify Hawk in his civilian identity, and followed him to try and discover who he was. She followed him for a while, seeing him become increasingly unstable, but lost him when she had to go into action as Dove.

  • Transformation
  • Danger Sense
  • Enhanced Intellect
  • Flight
  • Superhuman Strength


  • Danger Sense Transformation: When in the presence of danger, whether to herself or others, Dawn Granger can call out the word “Dove” and be transformed into her Dove form. She does not need to be aware of the danger for the transformation to take place, so if she happened to say the word while unknowingly being in danger, the transformation would take place. The transformation only reacts to actual danger, so if Dawn incorrectly believed that she was in danger she would be unable to transform into Dove. The transformation wears off a short time after the danger has passed, unless Dove has received serious injuries which would kill Dawn, in which case she would remain as Dove until the danger from the injuries has passed. On high magic worlds she can remain as Dove for extended periods regardless of whether there is any danger present.
  • Hyper-Vigilant: As Dove her natural aptitudes are enhanced, such as her ability as a good judge of people and situations allowing her to read people and objects in a situation, within seconds, and know how they will act and react.
  • Flight: The transformation changes Granger into a minor force of Order and she gains some brilliant avian physical characteristics, which are usually hidden under her costume.
  • Superhuman Agility: Dove can dodge almost indefinitely, multiple times from multiple sources of action. She’s dodged punches, swords, bullets and more multiple times.
  • Enhanced Durability
  • Concentrated Radiance: On high magic worlds her powers are enhanced, she can concentrate her radiance into a blinding beam of light. Likewise, during the¬†Blackest Night, Dove was able to channel the White Light of Creation to destroy¬†Black Lanterns¬†with her aura.
