He had a strong resemblance with Atum, the first Egyptian Pharaoh (probably an "Egyptian god", but still an immortal being) who was believed to be an exact copy of the god Osiris. According to the story of Osiris and Isis, Osiris ruled over the upper world, was killed by his brother Set, and was resurrected by Isis who gave birth to Horus, the god of the sky. In his comics, Tomahawk refers to Osiris and Horus as his ancestors, and New deities, among them Wasa and Taka, are based on the Egyptian gods. For example, Taka is similar to Horus, and Horus is similar to Thoth, who was Hermes' cat that accompanied him on his journeys. Horus was the god of writing, messenger of the gods and creator of Thoth and the divining rod. In the final story arc of How To Be A God, Isis transforms Tomahawk into Ra, the sun god.
New Batman is highly innovative and frequently employs technology in the course of his investigations and exploits. Because his physiology is unique, his suit allows him to use advanced technology without having to sacrifice "what he calls "character or "style".
Tomahawk became the fourth incarnation of Batman, becoming the first ever alternate universe Batman in the Cyborg storyline, and is another Batman to not believe the Batsignal which initiates Batman's Batman, Bruce Wayne. In "Darkest Knight: The Unofficial Story" (issue #9), however, the original Batman has returned and, during this story, Tomahawk and Bruce (the original Batman) briefly fight one-on-one in Batman's headquarters, where Bruce proves to be too much for Tomahawk, who does not want to admit to the original Batman that he is in fact only Tomahawk. Batman also explains to Lady Arkham that the Batsignal's activation of the original Batman's Batman's Batcomputer is the only reason the Batsignal was specially designed. Tomahawk is shown to be very overprotective of his secret identity and even forbids his mother and his warriors to observe the prayer ritual that Tomahawk has performed to become a god. d2c66b5586
