First appearance: Darkhawk #1 (1991)

Through the powers of a mysterious amulet, Chris Powell is able to transport his consciousness into the alien android named Darkhawk. This android body is the perfect vehicle to fight crime and save New York numerous times over. It’s just a shame that the Darkhawk comics were simply horrendous over the years, and it's not a surprise that even hardcore comic fans have very little knowledge of the character.

Lacking any personality or substance, Darkhawk is an uninspired hero who's used to take up space within Marvel’s expansive roster. He’s had a recent renaissance amongst Marvel’s cosmic characters, but unless it's a straight-up War of Kings adaptation, there's no interest in seeing Darkhawk on the silver screen.
