Bashari mentions "The land of Kahndaq has been freed from Ahk-ton's rule". Ahk-ton was an ancient Egyptian villain featured in the JSA "Savage Times" storyline. He harnessed the power of the orb of Ra to become an elemental monster, similar in appearance to Metamorpho. See more »

Under Rated!!!
7 August 2007 | by jonandrew-schneiderSee all my reviews

After watching this one, I was shocked to see such a low rating for this episode (6.7). It's fantastic! I completely agree with one of the previous posters that it's one of the top episodes in the 5 year run. While the previous Hawkman episode in this season was lacking quite a bit, this one COMPLETELY makes up for it. How could it not? Geoff Johns is one of the writers!

Ancient History does a great job at wrapping up aspects of the Hawkgirl/Green Lantern relationship - but not too neatly! I don't want to overhype it but it's due more credit than previous posters have given it.

Hats off to the writers!
