My Hero Academia Unveils Hawks’ Real Name

The UNITED STATES OF SMAAAASH!! The My Hero Academia universe’s top dog, All Might, put down his title “The Protector of Peace” in his concluding battle against All for One. Endeavour, the Rank 2 hero, claimed the place of the mightiest hero and this started a domino effect that changed the rankings of many professional heroes. In continuation, the number two spot was filled by Hawks, the winged wonder. Hawks have not yet been introduced in the anime, other than a sneak peek in the trailer of the feature film, Heroes Rising. Recently, the actual name of Hawks has been revealed.

@AitaikiMochi tweeted out a spoiler about the real name of Hawks – Takami Keigo. Hawks, though young, is experienced as a professional hero and can move insanely fast through the air. Hawks’ feathers double as knives considering how sharp they are. The name is actually an easter egg to his hero identity, explained as follows:

In the current storyline of the Manga, Hawks is playing a critical character against the war between Heroes and Villains. Hawks is acting as an undercover agent in the Paranormal Liberation Front, attempting to dismantle the organization from within. Under Shigaraki’s leadership, amassing a force of 100,000 villains, the PLF has indeed become a significant threat to the peace of the world. The countdown is set at 4 months from now.

Being an undercover agent, the identity of Hawks isn’t known by the hero community at large. Still, Hawks has been slipping Endeavour coded messages from beyond enemy lines to ring alarms for the upcoming battle. The confrontation between heroes and villains has been set to take place in 4 months, and it is going to be an action-packed training session for young Midoriya to rise up to the name of “All Might’s Successor”.
