Hawkman and Hawkgirl retired when the JSA disbanded. In 1963, a new pair using the same names appeared on the scene in the St. Louis area. The original pair never protested this usurpation of their names and formally blessed the activities of the new Hawks, who were later revealed to be aliens. These Hawks left Earth for their home planet in the 1980s. Infinity Inc. member Silverhawk has been formally acknowledged as the son of the original Hawks.

Hawkman remains an active member of the JSA.

There are several more winged heroes fighting the good fight, including several with connections to the original Hawks.
