This one picks up right where the last issue left was an okay read...the easter eggs did make me smile! :D

And yes, I did say *easter eggs.* You'll see! ;)

Why yes Hel. I don't think anyone disagrees on how *complicated* your history is. ;)

Oh! And speaking of cats...let's cut down to the action scene! Does she....or does she not kill Moretti? Hold that thought!

Heh. Batshadows are quite handy for causing intimidation aren't they? ^_____^

And she DOESN'T kill him! Just like I thought she wouldn't. Also, this last page confirms that the reporters did know Helena was Huntress the whole time. Oooooohhhh!!! :O

Whee! Two more issues to go after this! :D

Hrrmmm...who could Helena *really* be at this point? Good question. We'll find out in March. ;)

I dunno, I hope that those easter eggs are just that, and this isn't some sort of Earth 2/displaced Helena Wayne thing, since I really do prefer the Bartinelli take on her.

It's also becoming extremely formulaic at this point--Helena meets her reporter friends, makes a thousand cat references, sneaks into someplace, fights some dudes, kicks their asses with little effort, and gets away. It's starting to get really boring.

What editorial or creative sense does it make to do a slate clearing line-wide reboot, then hang on to some of the more needlessly complicated stuff from before?

Perhaps I expect too much

While im sure im biased because I grew up with Bertinelli!Huntress, Im agree that this doesn't make sense whether they're reintroducing Huntress as a displaced Earth-2(er) and/or as Bruce Wayne/Selena's daughter/

Especially when you consider that the two most visible iterations of the character outside of the comics were the Bertinelli Huntress.

I don't think cartoons are considered all that visible. There's still an animation age ghetto out ther to a degree. That would make Live Action Birds of Prey the most known Huntress. And she was Helena Wayne

i don't think anyone thought she would actually kill Moretti :D

and i agree i think these are all JUST easter eggs. everyone knows Levitz wrote Helena Wayne, he's loving the teasing. I STILL think this is Helena Bertinelli and they are on "our earth" that does not mean there is no Helena Wayne (i just don't think this is her).

maybe,... but letting the girls he abused have at him seems like something Helena Bertinelli would do, IMHO

She's still been pretty violent. And like I said she has let others (ie the victims) freak with the bad guy before (can't remember where off the top of my head) but its in character. She's no leaving them to the cops, she's leaving him to the victims

Do we actually get to see the girls taking revenge/deciding to leave him to the law? It's really bothered me how they've had pretty much no voice or presence in this mini beyond being victims in the background.

wait... they know she is Huntress?!?!?

i like that they Drew Helena Italian looking in those panels (she looks olive/taned)

I appreciate it too, mostly because I'm also of Italian descent and quite olive-y, but there are a lot of different ways to look Italian - some people are very fair skinned.

(When I was a kid and people used to describe me as olive skinned, I always wondered if they meant green or black. :D Actually, I still don't really understand why it's called that....)
