There was so much slash in this book I couldn't even pick out which panels to post without exceeding the 4 page limit. So I'll settle for posting the Earth-2 aftermath instead.

First things first, the fate or Helena's Robin costume:

-Sniffle- RIP Helena's Robin costume. :(

Well, that answers the question of how Helena will eventually run into Earth-1 Batman. Very Bertinelli-like there Helena. Or does this make her more like Selina?

And now, Huntress Begins!

I think between Perez and Maguire, Maguire draws Peege the best. Perez's Peege looks ten years older than Helena. @_@

Aside from the problematic Helena Bertinelli death off panel, this was actually a very good issue. Both Maguire and Perez impressed me with their art, plus I like how Levitz writes Hunts and Peege in this book. I'm game for #2!

So E2 Helena Wayne stole money from E1 Bruce Wayne... was that really the wisest course of action for someone trying to keep a low profile? Stealing from BATMAN?

Also "Robin's no use against Darkseid anyway. I'm a joke, you're the one with the superpowers"?? Really? I can't imagine the daughter of Batman and Catwoman EVER saying that.

From what I could tell from both books, too, was that Helena's probably more convinced of her father's death than Karen might have been of Kal's.

well, I've seen some panels from older Batman stuff and he was at times shown admitting the best he could do was pray.

Yes to both; the first one is only plausible if Bruce has already figured out the situation and decided to let her get away with the hack just to see where she was going with it.

It's been a month since she saw the deaths of Superman, Wonder Woman, and her dad. It's hard to blame her for being a bit demoralized.

Though I'm not sure why she doesn't immediately assume Earth-1 Batman is also Bruce.

Yeah that was my first thought.

I loved the way Peege was written here and will actually be coming back. Still hate her costume though.

Really? I like it less and less, actually. That logo on one breast idea -- it just looks like she spilled something on her shirt.

This Peege is a little too girly for my tastes. To me, PG is always half a breath away from putting a foot in somebody's ass.

It's nice that she doesn't have anti-gravity boobs for once, though.

well at least they gave an explanation for how blindingly stupid it would be to not seek out help on new earth....and if they're smart they created a plot thread that can be addressed in the future....

Hmmm. I noticed they called Steppenwolf the leader in Earth-2 - they never actually mentioned Darkseid. Guess that wasn't actually important.

Sorry, although I know that he's a long term DC character, every time I hear that guy's name I hear this,

This for me, especially since it was used in Star Trek: First Contact.

When I hear the name I think of Herman Hesse.

"There was so much slash in this book I couldn't even pick out which panels to post without exceeding the 4 page limit"

The "prude" bit comes immediately to mind; same with Peege showing off her new costume and "racing" Huntress and them picking themselves up and facing off against Irradiated Man while small talking about their past dating lives.

Also, this was AMAZING.

Still grumping over what happened to Bertinelli.

Will check out if DCnU Helena Wayne is up to snuff though.

So glad Helena can just show up and rob Batman without him knowing it.

Considering pre-Crisis Earth-1 Bruce had a pretty good relationship with pre-Crisis Helena Wayne that would be a nice thing to see. Especially since the current Morrisonian-version of him has not being written as a 90s era jerk.

Also the irony in Bruce this case being the kindler, gentler Wayne compared to this version of Helena (though removing Earth-1 Bruce's previous relationship with Selina - now they have anonymous sex and she doesn't know who he is takes away the bite of what could have been had both known of a "Helena Wayne").

I've always loved to see Damien's reaction to have a blood sibling as well (since he's all about being Bruce's "real" son). Pre-reboot I was hoping that some writer would write back in Helena Kyle and have Damien reacting to having a half-sister (I never bough the fact that Selina had a kid with her ex-lover's son - she wouldn't do that to Slam - and all signs had been pointing to Bruce prior to the reveal).

I really like Kevin Maguire's art here for the flashbacks (and that's good since he's hit and miss for me sometimes he has the best facial expressions and sometimes it just looks all kinds of wrong).

His version of Kara/Supergirl looks more like the classical Supergirl than I can ever remember any version of Power Girl (and even more so than the new reboot Supergirl). I just can't reconcile this version of Karen as written by Levitz as being the SAME one we saw in Mr. Terrific. They even looked dramatically different (the Mr. T "Karen Starr" looked like a generic blonde - thin with average bust and average looks - THIS by Maguire shows the va-va-voom aspect that all Kara/Supergirls pre-Michael Turner/Jeph Loeb had).

Not sure if it's been posted in s_d already, but Bleeding Cool had this as the last hurrah for the boob window.
