The first of the planned one-shots features Hawkman, one of the founding members of the Justice Society who has been part of the DC Universe in one incarnation or another since 1940, and whose legacy has been part of the Justice Society virtually nonstop. since its foundation.

The one-shot also includes a back-up story centered on Adrianna Tomaz, Black Adam’s deceased wife in the comics, by writer Bryan Q. Miller and artist Marco Santucci.
Judging by the tone of DC’s description of the one-shot, as well as Kaare Andrews’ cover (see below), the version of Hawkman and Adrianna Tomaz appearing in the one-shot will be based on their film counterparts (played by Aldis Hodge and Sarah Shahi, respectively), with the stories told in the comic also apparently based on their cinematic history.
In Hawkman’s case, DC’s description mentions that he is a “former leader” of the JSA, who will encounter a version of the classic Hawkman comic book enemy, the Gentleman Ghost. And for Adrianna, her chapter’s description establishes her as an archaeologist who inadvertently ends up working for InterGang – the Metropolis-based super gang known for using weapons from Apokolips to fight Superman.
