ShadowHawk is a fictional comic book vigilante anti-hero created by Jim Valentino.
He was first introduced in the Malibu Sun free promotional magazine in May of 1992. His official Image Comics debut was in the second issue of Rob Liefeld's Youngblood series.
Originally, the name Shadowhawk was to be used for the Marvel character Starhawk while he had darkness powers, but Tom DeFalco convinced Valentino to use the name for a new character instead.
Paul Johnstone grew up as a troubled youth in Leek, Staffordshire. He avoided a life of crime due in part to the encouragement of a man named Richard Woodroe, who was originally assigned as a caseworker to Paul when he was caught stealing, and eventually married his mother, becoming his stepfather.
