Blackhawk Imitators and Parodies

In all things, but especially the entertainment field, success breeds imitators, and that is certainly true of Blackhawk. There are probably more, but here are a few sure Blackhawk imitators and one maybe. A series as successful as Blackhawk that has such strong identities is also a natual target for parody, and there have been more than a few of those, also.
