Justice League of America #53 - May 1967

sgGuest-starring Hawkgirl!

The Story: "The Secret Behind the Stolen Super-Weapons!" by Gardner Fox, Mike Sekowsky, and Sid Greene. The accessories of Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow suddenly disappear! Is it the handywork of the mysterious Treasure-Thief, or the even more terrifying Johnny Marbles?

Roll Call: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Green Arrow, Atom, Hawkman

Notable Moments: Johnny Marbles and his cronies are your basic small-time crooks, perfectly rendered by Sekowsky.

Hawkgirl is the one who ultimately solves the case, and the story ends with a sweet panel showing Carter and Shayera as the loving couple they are:
"If I could find a girl like you, Hawkgirl, I'd get married myself!", Green Arrow says. Did he believe that when he said it, or was he just trying to fit in with his fellow, more straight-laced JLAers?

Yet NOBODY said, "Shouldn't we just go ahead and make her a member?" Guess not.
