Falk’s character is the latest reincarnation of an Egyptian prince fated to be reborn throughout time. Carter can tap into the powers of the Hawk God, Horus — just like his similarly reincarnated soulmate, Kendra Saunders, aka Hawkgirl.

Hentschel first will appear in the upcoming Arrow/Flash crossover event, then will continue the character on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which is slated to premiere at midseason.
