in the dc comic book universe ,The Blackhawks were an international paramilitary group of pilots operating against the Axis powers during World War II as such The Blackhawks came from the Nazi-occupied nations of Europe; Poland, Norway, Holland, and France. for all intents and purposes they were essentually a paramilitary anti terrorist unit made up of individuals from all the various armed forces of the time . maybe im reading too much into the matter folks but is it just me or could one almost view them as being essentually gijoe during the world war 2 era had gijoe actually existed in the dc comic universe during the golden age era of dc comics? thats the kind of vibe im getting anyways folks , my late great uncle randy had a huge comic book collection from way back in the day and i inherited it at the time he passed away about a year or so back. i love reading up on this old school stuff.
