Hawkgirl is a main member of the Justice League and in the history of comics, she has been distinguished by two incarnations. Her first being Shiera Sanders, the girlfriend of the golden-age Hawkman, whom both believed were re-incarnated lovers. The second being Shayera Hol, a police officer from Thanagar and wife to Katar Hol, the silver-age Hawkman. Hawkgirl's main weapon of choice was a mace, made of Nth metal.

Jennifer Hale and Nika Futterman are good, but Maria Canals-Barrera will always be my favorite Hawkgirl. One thing that I loved about Maria's Hawkgirl was her chemistry with Phil LaMarr's Green Lantern.

VC thoughts update

I really liked Janet Waldo the most in the role. She had a great husky voice and a really youthful and playful attitude that really made me enjoy her performance.

Next would have to be Maria Canals. She actually sounds pretty similar to Janet, and her performance has quite a bit of energy. There were times where she wouldn't sound right, but most of the time, she did great.

Shannon Farnon I think did better as Hawkgirl than Wonder Woman (even though I still like her Wondy). She has a really nice tough gal sound and I think the macho attitude fits Hawkgirl well.

Jennifer Hale also delivers a great performance. She is quite playful at times, but she could also be pretty aggressive.

Collette Whittaker is quite energetic and spunky. She's another great fit for the role.

Nika Futterman also sounds cool. She really seems to be having tons of fun in the role and her youthful attitude is great.

Lana Lesley tends to overact quite a bit.

I wouldn't mind seeing Nika play a traditional Hawkgirl.

Sticking with Maria Canals Barrera, but Nika Futterman was also good.

Honestly, I'd say Nika is my second favorite next to Maria. Everyone else is just generic and forgettable.

"Bring them back, or I'm going to find out what that bell on your head sounds like."

Hawkgirl is a distaff counterpart that deserves more attention (outside of being Hawkman's love interest) in media.
Here are my Top 5 Favourite Voices for Her:

5. Janet Waldo
4. Lana Lesley
3. Nika Futterman
2. Jennifer Hale
1. Maria Canals-Barrerra

Future VA Suggestions:

I think Sarah Michelle Gellar would be solid as the Kendra Saunders Hawkgirl, using a similar voice to her Seventh Sister Voice.

I also think Sharon Alexander would be very good as the Shayera Hol version, using an Arabic accented version of her Arcee voice.

I also recommend Lauren Landa, Alesia Glidewell, Lena Headey and Linda Larkin.

Definitely Maria Canals. She made Hawkgirl such a great character. Jennifer Hale is a close second.

You know, I see Maria Canals as the Original Hawkgirl, Shiera Hall, and Jennifer Hale as the Kendra Saunders Hawkgirl (Before the 52 reboot) two different characters voiced by two good actresses

Maria will always be the best, but IDK, Jennifer Hale sounds pretty good in IGAU. I'd say she's a close second.

Collette Whittaker was rpetty good as the Kendra Saunders version of Hawkgirl.
said at 9:11 PM on Fri Aug 2 2013

And Jennifer Hale is pretty good as the Sheira Hall incarnation of Hawkgirl.
said at 9:04 PM on Sun Mar 25 2012
She said " Here, Here!" in Young Justice episode Agendas. I wonder who voiced her.
said at 9:58 PM on Sun Apr 22 2012
@CLG Whoever she was, she did a good job IMO. Reminded me a bit of Maria Canals.
said at 11:20 AM on Sat Apr 28 2012
@TheVengeanceKnight True, She did good. It sounded a bit like Tara Strong. Right?
said at 5:56 AM on Fri Jul 27 2012
@CLG Apparently, it was Danica McKellar. Though GW mentioned she hasn't officially been cast yet, so chances are she won't voice her in the long run.
