Wing Hero "Hawks" (ウィングヒーロー ホークス Uingu Hīrō Hōkusu?) is the former No. 3 Pro Hero and the current No. 2 Pro Hero.[1]

Appearance

Hawks is a tall man with messy, light-colored hair. Due to his Quirk, he possesses very large dark colored wings. He wears a dark shirt with a wavy pattern, a light jacket, light pants, a belt, headphones and a visor.

Personality

Hawks is carefree, jovial and dislikes formalities, often acting in a spontaneous and unpredictable way while being cocky and taunting. He believes that popular approval is the most important metric a Pro Hero should be judged for and does not appear to take the official rankings seriously, showing a preference for the lower ranks as it would allow him to act more freely and avoid the burdens of being a top hero.

He is very talkative and can have a long, one-sided conversation casually while doing his work as a hero. He also claims that he'll always strive for what he longs for.

Still, he is said to be ferocious in regards to his pro hero duties and understands the importance of a leader figure among all heroes after All Might's retirement.

History

At 18 years old, Hawks started a hero agency and by the second half of that year, he ranked in the top 10 of the Hero Billboard Chart JP; the youngest and fastest hero to do so.[2]

Four years later, he ranked up to become the No. 3 pro hero and took on Fumikage Tokoyami as an intern.[1]

Synopsis

Pro Hero Arc

In November, Hawks is presenting in the second half of the year's Hero Billboard Chart JP. During the event, it is announced that Hawks rises up one rank to No. 2 in the Top 10 hero ranking.[1] Disinterested in the speeches of the other Heroes, Hawks interrupts Edgeshot and takes the microphone. Hawks flies above the podium and gives a speech about how the approval rating system is the most important of all and how he disdains the speeches of the other heroes. Hawks flies down and hands the microphone over to Endeavor. After Endeavor's assuring statement, Hawks applauds him.

Backstage in Endeavor's room, Hawks is talking to a displeased Endeavor, since he enraged him during the event. Hawks explains that he tried to help Endeavor on the podium as he sees that Endeavor is fit to be a new leader to support everyone after All Might's retirement and expresses that he sees himself not fit to have that role, preferring to be in the lower ranks. Before Endeavor leaves dissatisfied of him, he requests Endeavor for a team-up as there has been an increase concerning sightings in his area, reminding Endeavor about the Nomus, to the Flame Hero's shock.[2]

Hawks knocks out Teruo

Hawks takes out villain.

Hawks brings Endeavor to Kyushu where he decides where they will eat to discuss the proposal of working together. During their trip, Hawks effortlessly takes out an extreme follower, helps civilians and socializes with his fans. Hawks decides to eat with Endeavor at Umai building, where Hawks tells Endeavor about the appearing rumors of the Nomus around the country instilling fear in the civilians and asks Endeavor, as the no. 1 hero, to reassure them. After getting the check, they are attacked by the rumored Nomu. Hawks is tasked by Endeavor to evacuate the building while he battles the creature.[3]

Meanwhile, Endeavor is facing off against High-End. Hawks is surprised that Endeavor can fly to which Endeavor considers it "not falling" and warns him to not underestimate the Nomu they are facing. High-End starts regenerating and comments on Endeavor's foolish attempt to finish it off in one strike. Endeavor sees that High-End possesses a regeneration Quirk similar to other black Nomus while the white Nomus don't have any special Quirks and assumes that the black Nomus are high-quality Nomus with many powerful Quirks. Endeavor believes High-End to be special among the black Nomus since it can speak. Endeavor decides to capture High-End alive because of its ability to speak so that he can interrogate it.

Fierce Wings

Hawks Rescuing everyone.

Due to High-End smashing Endeavor across the building, the top half of the building begins collapsing. Hawks uses his Quirk, Mighty Wings which allows him to control and manipulate strong and flexible feathers, to get all the injured civilians out of the building first. As Hawks' feathers begin delivering the injured down to safety, Hawks himself joins the fight and launches three feathers at High End which successfully strikes its arm. Endeavor uses an advanced version of Brilliant Scorching Fist: Hell Spider and strikes High End with multiple fire streams which cuts up its body. Hawks wonders if Endeavor's move is his strongest to which Endeavor comments about it not even being close. The cut up High-End begins regenerating and comments on the fight being interesting.[4]

Quirk and Abilities

Fierce Wings (剛翼 Gōyoku?): Hawks's Quirk grants him hawk-like wings[2], Hawks is also capable of shooting out his feathers from his wings to strike an opponent. Hawks is able to effortlessly control the movement of each of them, the feathers are both strong and flexible, which are capable of carrying medium-sized objects such as rocks or human beings with just a single feather for each one or mutiple for large objects.[3][5] Hawks mentions he does not have enough feathers to hold up a collapsing building implying that if he did have more he would be able to hold it up.
