Quality ComicsEdit

The original Blackhawk Squadron continuity provided no backstory for how the team was formed, though it is likely in the early days of World War II.  What is known is that they were formed of pilots from various countries with the express purpose of battling the Axis forces in the air as the Blackhawk Squadron of planes.
