Why Is Hawks a Huge Fan of Endeavor?
Endeavor’s character is not as perfect as All Might's. He is known for his abusive past, his explosive mood swings, and his intense desperation to be better than All Might. Despite all of these, Hawks considers the Flame Hero as his favorite. But why?
Endeavor is Hawks’ childhood hero. When he was a child, Hawks was not on good terms with his father, who killed someone over money, and his mother, who helped him escape.
Hawks was treated with disdain. But everything changed when Endeavor arrested his father.
Hawks’ loyalty towards Endeavor remained the same even after he learned about the Todoroki family.
He felt a connection with the Todoroki children as he experienced the same thing when he was a child.
However, he firmly believes that, unlike his own father, Endeavor has changed and is more than willing to fix his family.
The Wing Hero supports Endeavor’s goal of improving himself as Hawks is working on moving on from his trauma as well.
Hawks believes that helping the Flame Hero will also help him in return.
