Hawkman Chuck Parker is the son of Golden Eagle. Chuck was raised alone by his father. His mother was young and unprepared for a baby and upon Chuck's birth, left him with his father. His mother's whereabouts are unknown. Chuck grew up idolizing his father, even following in his footsteps as a professional surfer. Chuck's father encouraged him to pursue his dreams of becoming a superhero, even asking former Titan, Karen Beecher AKA Bumblebee to augment an old Thanagarian uniform for Chuck. When Starro the Conquorer re-emerged, Chuck became Hawkman and was instrumental in defeating the alien. Hawkman has spent time on Thanagar as well as Egypt, taking in all the information about various incarnations of Hawkman and Hawkgirl. He can be stoic and distant as well as fun-loving and spontaneous. He is the object of affection for Betty Kane, the former Bat-Girl (He enjoys flirting with her, but is not serious about pursuing her). He carries a wide array of weapons as well as Thanagarian technology. He is an expert battle tactician and does not shy away from physical confrontation. Despite being vulnerable to attack, Hawkman often dives into battle, almost as if he enjoys the thrill.
Golden Eagle Charlie Parker is a former world champion surfer and former member of Titans West. Charlie had a rough childhood growing up with a single mother. His mother miscarried several times before giving birth to Charlie. His father passed away soon after. His mother struggled to provide a modest life for the two of them. Charlie idolized Hawkman and wanted to beome a hero like him. Charlie's best friend was Karen Beecher. The two of them stumbled across some discarded Nth metal on the beach. She fashioned a costume for Charlie and he became Golden Eagle. The two of them quickly joined Titans West after Karen became Bumblebee. Charlie later discovered he is the reincarnation of the baby Chay-Ara (reincarnated centuries later as Hawkgirl) was carrying when she was murdered. As the reincarnated son of Hawkman and Hawkgirl, he has had many adventures with them as well as the former Teen Titans. Charlie also became a professional surfer winning many awards. He is the father of the new Hawkman, Chuck Parker. Charlie occasionally dons his Golden Eagle costume and sometimes assists training younger heroes at Jupiter Labs.
