Huntress #6 Preview

So. About whether or not Helena Wayne actually killed the Kufra dictator in the last issue?

Welp, that answers that question.

Needless to say this is the part where Ibn Hassan orders the hit on Huntress.

And so it begins...

Damnit! Is it Wednesday yet? Helena stop being so sexy! The wait is killing me. XP

On another note, this note from Paul Levitz seems to imply Helena Wayne was Helena Bertinelli for a good portion of her time on the main DCU Earth:

“Wayne or Bertinelli …or perhaps both?” series writer Paul Levitz said exclusively to THE SOURCE. “What a lively debate erupted as this mini-series evolved, including in the DC halls as we discussed how best to fit perhaps DC’s most determined adventurer into the world of the New 52, and into the as-yet-unleashed new Earth 2. Readers argued over nuances of her behavior as well as deliberate clues, and their reactions helped shape the stories. In the end, the answers will take a few more tales to tell, and will be revealed in the upcoming WORLDS’ FINEST series, which will pick up one flight after the last page of HUNTRESS #6. And it’s a safe bet that the reveals will surprise everyone before we’re done.”

Huh...on that note, I think I finally understand why Helena burns her Helena Bertinelli passport on the first page of Worlds' Finest. I take this to mean Huntress #6 will mark the official "death" of Helena Bertinelli and will have to "disappear" as such? (Which would be pretty pointless since she'll still be operating as Huntress on the main DCU Earth anyway?) Still sucks cause I wanted "Helena Bertinelli" to at least maintain a presence, but I guess this is for the best when you consider Helena B fans are still not happy about the change (and I can't say I blame them).

Okay, fair enough. I still think that we were meant to question what happened, and there might still be more to this than what we've been shown so far, but dude is indeed dead.
