Hawk's aforementioned ego annoys the rest of the team (and almost everybody else he meets) and sometimes is counterproductive on their missions. Before his time with the Alpha Teens, Hawk was enrolled in a flight school where he developed a rivalry with another pilot named Bogey. They pushed each other to see who was the best pilot, but Bogey's actions almost got them both killed. Both men were expelled after Bogey blamed Hawk for the incident during an inquest.

Zack "Hawk" Hawkes (voiced by Charlie Schlatter) is an eighteen-year-old gifted test pilot who is more at home in the air than on the ground, both due to his piloting skill and his huge ego. He is too not much of a hand-to-hand fighter.
