Hannibal Hawkes (died after 1831) was a reincarnation of the Egyptian prince Khufu. He was the husband of a late unnamed woman.


Hannibal sat for a picture with his wife at the County Fair in 1830.

Sometime later, the two of them crossed paths with Vandal Savage in Jefferson City, where they stole Chay-Ara's original bracelet from him. However, they lost it a year later to bandits. Hannibal was eventually killed at a young age.[1]

Powers and abilities


  • Reincarnation: the ancient Egyptian knife that killed this man in his original incarnation as Khufu had an unusual effect on her soul and that of his lover, Chay-Ara. The couple is stuck in a seemingly endless cycle of death and rebirth through the ages. This allowed this man to deceive death and live through the centuries, succeeding in achieving his goals in the next life.
