Hawk is a character from the Streets of Rage comic.
Hawk is a former police officer and former partner of Max "Thunder" Hatchett. When Max learned Hawk was involved with drug trade he turned Hawk on, who was then expelled from the force.
Five years later Hawk learns that Max and Blaze Fielding resigned from the police force, so he captures Max to exact revenge on him, taking him into a factory, while his ninjas attack Axel Stone and Murphy on the hospital. One of his goons captures Blaze and takes her to him, but before he can do anything Axel storms the place. In the ensuing confusion Max frees himself and confronts Hawk, all while Murphy's squad bomb the place. In the end Hawk falls onto a vat of melted metal, where he meets his demise.
