Nighthawk by dusty-abell Nighthawk by dusty-abell
Another entry for the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe REDUX blog [link]
....Nighthawk, Kyle Richmond, one of my favorite costume designs of the 1970's and a character I always associate with the Defenders!

Awesome! Nighthawk is probably one of my favorite member's of the Defenders, and he also has a really good backstory too.

Me too, I think his potential was pretty squandered, would loved to have seen him ascend to the top of Marvels Heroes, where I always imagined he would belong some day! His costume redesigns going forward from his original appearance here didn't help matters any...............guns on his wings, wolverine claws and horrible mask alterations, if it ain't broke..................

Right? Larsens mini series about 10 years ago or more now was pretty damn fun too!

Yes!! So awesome, Dusty! I'm also a huge fan of his costume design (as well as the Defenders in general).

Hey Thanks Matt, I love your stuff man, it's such a great style and your subject matter is right up my alley! Defenders #17-Doc Strange , The Hulk, Powerman and Nighthawk squaring off against the Wrecking Crew in a double page spread by Sal Buscema, one of my earliest comic book memories, made me an instant fan of all of them!

Nice classic Bronze NightHawk!

Loved the Defenderes. My favorite Defenders story was the multi-part "Defenders for a Day". Where all the B-List heros: Jack of Hearts, Captain Ultra, Stingray, etc. join the team for a day!

Bill, after the Wrecking Crew issues I mentioned, the Defenders for a day issues were also 2 of my favorites, everybody showed up in those, plus a ton of bad guys!!!!!

You can never go wrong with Sal Buscema! His run on Defenders will always be my favorite...such an amazing artist!

Very cool! My cousin who actually got me into comics and into producing comic artwork used to let us look through the old Marvel Universe and pick a hero for him to draw for us. This was one of the earliest picks! Great work.

Thanks Damon, I went with his earlier original appearance, I wasn't as much of a fan of the little guns on his wing tips and the talons on his gloves redesign. Glad you dug it!
