Birdman is a Hanna-Barbera superhero who debuted in Birdman and the Galaxy Trio.
He is an ordinary human endowed by the sun god Ra (although this origin is only vaguely and briefly hinted at during the series; his real name is given as Ray Randall) with the ability to shoot solar rays from his fists and project "solar shields" to defend himself against attacks. His trademark is his battle cry of "BIIIIIIIIIIRDMAN!"
Recruited by a top-secret government agency, Inter-Nation Security, and now works full-time fighting crime, assisted by his eagle sidekick Avenger. Afterwords he retired and became a Lawyer and changed his name to Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law where he defends the characters Hanna Barbara created
In addition to the abilities he received from Ra, Birdman also possesses the power of flight, thanks to the giant wings which sprout from his back.
His sole weakness is that he must periodically recharge his super powers through exposure to the sun’s rays, a weakness that is exposed in nearly every episode.
- Birdman can be seen as a cameo in the original Powerpuff Girls episode Members Only as one of the members of A.W.S.M.
