The ‘Justice League’s’ Hawkgirl Loses Her Powers

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Maria Canals Barrera voices the ultra-powerful Hawkgirl in the Justice League Unlimited, but these days, Hawkgirl is losing her powers.

That’s because Barrera plays a mortal mom raising a family of wizards in the new Disney Channel series, Wizards Of Waverly Place, and this time, Barrera’s character has no superpowers.

But her lack of wizard skills isn’t stopping Barrera from having a magical time on the show.

She explains, “Even though I don’t have powers like my kids and husband, I still get to be a part of their magic in certain scenes. It’s fun to watch the kids be powerful.”

Still, Barrera has thought long and hard about what her magical power on the show would be if she actually had one.

Barrera admits, “I’d want the power of invisibility, so I can keep an eye on my wizard kids. They wouldn’t be able to get away with anything!”

And while Barrera is enjoying her mortal state, her inner Hawkgirl still makes an appearance on Wizards from time to time.

Barrera adds, “I find myself using my Hawgkirl voice when I’m reprimanding my children. Hawkgirl brings out the mom warrior in me!”

Wizards Of Waverly Place premieres this fall.
