Nope. Ollie even chewed Carter out for making them go to a needless funeral.

More like ONLY Dr. Fate was in on it. The entire JSA, Hawkgirl included, thought that Hawkman had been killed.

But in all fairness, the villains in question had a fairly decent plan in place, and well prepared rabbit holes to evade capture. They just didn't count on Hawkman surviving and using his brain to hunt them down.

Yeah, but that's Ollie. \:\) Dr. Fate definitely knew... his participation was key. The whole arc took a very short time at any rate... just a few days. Besides, if my key relatives and allies included Green Arrow, I'd probably lie about anything I needed kept under wraps too. \:\)

Well, Hawkgirl was definitely decieved. The JSA probably just didn't factor into Hawkman's plan at all... he wasn't a member at the time after all.

I'll agree there. Didn't Charlie Parker claim to be hunting the villains down himself anyway? (It was a lie, but they had no reason to doubt him.)
