Smallville Hawkman vs. Arrowverse Hawkman: Which Was Better? put out an article comparing the Smallville and Arrowverse versions of the DC superheroes. Hawkman made No. 6 on the list and they chose the Smallville version played by Michael Shanks as the better Hawkman. Smaville's Hawkman only appeared in four episodes, while Falk Hentschel's Hawkman appeared in nine episodes (seven Legends, one Arrow, one, Flash).
I'll have to agree with CBR's decision. The storyline, the writing, the costume were all much better than Arrowverse did. In my personal opinion, the writing and the way the show used Hawkman was an insult and left me wishing they had never used Hawkman in their horrid show. Hawkgirl wasn't much better as they had her useless unless she had a man to cling to. Because of their costumes, the Hawks are going to be hard to pull off but hopefully, someday they will receive the proper treatment from writers who know what they are doing.
Falk Hentschel as Hawkman and Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl did a great job with what they were given. I wouldn't mind these two showing up as the Hawks together again someday, as long as the writers of Arrowverse are nowhere near the project. Article Link
