While drag racing, Tommy's car was pulled off the road by a supernatural force, causing him to hit a tree. He and his passenger, Betty Seaver, were both alright, but they discovered a meteorite. Suddenly, Vandal Savage appeared, having been looking for the same meteorite. He took Tommy, using him for testing, injecting Nth metal DNA in to him, causing him to turn in to a hawk-mutation. Savage allowed him to roam free for a bit, killing whom he wished. Sometime later, Rip Hunter's team broke in to Savage's ward, causing some of his experiments to run free. Tommy was soon cured, and returned to Betty.
