All the way back in ancient Egypt, Chay-Ara and her husband Kha-Tarr were prosperous rulers of their city. One day, they would find a winged harness that granted them flight, which unbeknownst to them was made out of an alien material called Nth Metal, fashioned by the warrior race of Thanagar. Along with that came an event that would define their legacy, as Nabu (soon to be the spirit to serve Doctor Fate) told them they will be reincarnated upon death. Later on into the present day, Chay-Ara and Kha-Tarr would become archaeologists Carter Hall and Shiera Sanders, where they'd reclaim their harnesses and became Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Hawkgirl in particular would become more well-known than her lover, as she'd be featured more prominently, being a staple of the Justice League, along with her niece Kendra being part of the relaunched Justice Society of America.
Hawkgirl was brain washed into joining the One Earth regime. This has made her an ideal enforcer for Superman’s ranks.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
Hawkgirl appears in the beginning of story mode with the Justice League as they battle several villains. She helps Shazam defeat Black Adam. Hawkgirl initially attempts to strike Doomsday (who leaped into mid-air) with her mace.
But Doomsday, using all his strength, hangs on to Hawkgirl in mid-air and attempts to drag her down. Green Lantern eventually breaks Hawkgirl free of his grasp. Hawkgirl (accompanied by Wonder Woman and Shazam) was the first to spot the Joker preparing to detonate the nuclear bomb, while Batman ran to stop him.
She and her fellow JLA members flew at full speed in an attempt to stop Joker. Shiera watched in awe as her teammates vanished before her eyes. Her, Flash, Shazam, Nightwing, and Raven were the only JLA operatives to never go to the Alternate Dimension.
Her duplicate in the other dimensions is a member of Superman's Regime.
Hawkgirl first appeared with Yellow Lantern apprehending Batman, taking him to Superman. Hawkgirl and Nightwing leading Regime Troops later broke into the Joker Clan's hideout, attempting to capture The Joker. She was unknowingly shot in the wing by Harleen, whom she failed to defeat and was knocked unconscious. She was rescued by Damian Wayne before Joker had the chance to sever her wings.
Hawkgirl regained her consciousness and was briefly seen fighting Aquaman. Realizing they were outnumbered (with the duplicates' arrival at that time), Hawkgirl and Nightwing fled Arkham by blowing a hole in the wall.
She was among the Regime military preparing to fight off the Atlantean monsters. Hawkgirl and Black Adam were initially targeting Green Lantern, but the two decided to chase down Luthor instead. Lex eventually retaliated by bombarding the two with missiles, causing Hawkgirl to plummet into the Hall of Justice.
Luthor then attempted to remove Sheira's Nth Metal Belt. Though she resists by attacking him, Lex beats her to the ground. Shazam interferes before Lex removes her belt.
Hawkgirl was present during the meeting with the other Regime members, and watched on as Superman killed Shazam.
Hawkgirl was last seen participating in the attack on Gotham. Sheira was arrested for her role in the Regime.
Powers and Abilities
Hawkgirl is a trained Thanagarian warrior, and her tenacity coupled with her combat prowess makes her a fierce opponent even in the face of more powerful beings than herself. Her large wings afford her nimble flight, while her Nth metal weaponry is the primary source of her power. Her belt and armor give her enhanced strength and durability, with her trademarked mace also being forged from alien metal. Due to exposure to Nth metal several thousand years ago, Hawkgirl has a quasi-form of immortality through reincarnation, with her current incarnation, Shiera, simply being the latest in a long line of Hawkgirls.

Free of his brainwashing, Hawkgirl exacted revenge on the High Councilor for murdering her husband, Hawkman. She was nevertheless sent to prison for her role in the regime. One night she awoke hovering above her cot, glowing with eldritch light. An instant later she stood at the bottom of a shallow crater. There she found the source of the light: a meteorite of pure Nth-metal. As she touched it, the meteorite sprung to life, encasing her in Nth-metal. The new armor made Hawkgirl invincible. Her first act: vengeance against those who had helped Superman capture Hawkman.
Hawkgirl wears an elaborate golden helmet with two yellow wings facing outward, three green stripes on the top, and black shading around the eyeholes. Hawkgirl also wears a green perforated crop top with green and a reddish-brown leather breastplate and a yellow leather collar that reaches up beyond the neck. In addition, she wears yellow and brown armbands on both of her arms, brown leather fingerless gloves with arm guards, a loosely fitting brown leather utility belt around her waist, green perforated skintight pants with metallic green leg-plating and reddish-brown leather briefs, and knee-high reddish-brown boots with golden talons. Lastly, Hawkgirl has her distinctive Thanagarian wings and wields her Nth-metal mace.
Hawkgirl retains her giant wings, but her mace has a modified design. Her helmet is more elaborate and has green shading around her eyes. She sports a reddish-brown leather bustier held up by a gold and green breastplate, exposing her upper torso. Her arms have gold armor with extra padding on her forearms. She has green perforated pants with metallic plating, boots with talons, and reddish-brown fingerless gloves with arm guards, just like her default costume.
- Before Superman comes to fight the Regime Black Adam and when Hawkgirl is fighting Aquaman, she is not fighting in her Regime costume but rather her default costume. This is most likely an error on the developers' part.
