A 3-year-old boy who was killed in an accident in 2015 has become a brand new superhero! Zaadii was killed by a distracted driver and, ever since, his mother, Rachel Tso Cox, has worked to turn his impact on his family into a positive message for others. Gail Simone, known for her work on DC’s Birds of Prey and Batgirl, was inspired by Zaadii’s legacy. With the backing of the Travellers’ Company, Simone turned Zaadii into Z-Hawk!
Inspired by Batman, who Zaadii idolized, Z-Hawk is a protector. He respects his Navajo roots and fights crime without killing. But for Cox, this is more than a superhero story. This is a chance to see her son grown up.
