My reaction was pretty much the same as Hermes' here,

*Sigh* Another one of the female members of the female Bat Family members has bitten the dust, it appears. Though the question not arises as to whether Dinah, Barbara etc. know what happened to the original Helena, since Fake!Helena has been impersonating her for an unknown amount of time.

What kind of restaurant lets people burn passports at the table?

Now I'm hoping that Helena B turns out to be actually alive.

And aeka gets to say "I was right!" or something like that.

I say it's a mislead, a few months down earth-1 Helena will resurface and try to take down huntress.

Is this from the upcoming Worlds' Finest release in May?

I don't remember this from the other World's Finest titles I've read.

*sigh* this makes me sad.... i sorta ignored the first line where she says "Alas poor miss bertinelli... she served me well." and went straight to "She was REAL you know... interesting life..."" and felt he was TRYING to be respectful... then reading it again, it just feels like a punch to the face and then a kick to the crotch...

my only hope is that Helena B is somehow still alive (faking her death) and will come back as Earth 1 Huntress

Okay, it's Helena Wayne, they want to make sure that is the approach from now on, I can get that. Burning the passport seems to be a rather mean way of doing it, though.

"Though the question not arises as to whether Dinah, Barbara etc. know what happened to the original Helena, since Fake!Helena has been impersonating her for an unknown amount of time."

Well, Levitz said that the two have been stuck on this Earth for five years, apparently happening during the Darkseid invasion--so who's to say that maybe a more secretive Helena Wayne, disguised as Bartenelli, didn't help out a certain Black Canary or even had a hacker friend that got her good intel?

Ugh. Thanks, DC, for killing off another of my favorite characters and giving me another book to avoid.

So, for Earth-2, Lois and Selina have died so their husbands can angst (a Batman tormented and driven by the loss of a loved one? How original!), and Helena B. died off panel at some point so Helena W. could have a secret identity?

Which also doesn't make Helena W. and Power Girl come off too well since they're casually flipping through other (possibly dead) women's passports. Are we really supposed to believe the daughter of Batman and Catwoman couldn't come up with a fake identity on her own?

I don't get it. All I see is a woman burning her own passport and being very metaphorical on the prospect of not using that particular identity.

Maybe I'm just an old fart because I remember wondering the reverse, and why the hell they made the Huntress, Batman's daughter, a Mafia don's daughter post COIE, but this doesn't really faze me,

Though I can appreciate it might folks who only knew the Helena Bertinelli version.

You know, I haven't broken this one out in *quite* a while now. I've fought *very* hard to avoid my urge to use it towards the way that DCnU has turned out to be everything I expected--a horrible mashup of Silver Age fetishism with 90s gratuitous violence, plus a healthy dose of misogyny and fridging. But between this and Harley being killed off?


(And the only reason I didn't include the Aoki cluster-F-bomb is that I think I got a warning for using it last time.)

Yet another of my favourite characters unceremoniously ditched.

Hating on DC so much right now.

Actually, I'm happy about this - it confirms that Helena Bertinelli did exist as a real person, and not just as a made-up alias. Sure, Ms. Wayne says she's dead, but this is comics - Helena's not really dead until we see the body.

Even coming from the perspective of not knowing much about either Huntress, both of them come off as incredibly callous and unpleasant people. Way to not show any respect whatsoever towards the dead.

Was my quest really this short?

From: [personal profile] eaglet_auditore
I see. Well DC, this Auditore is outta here!

I still want Batwing in trade, and perhaps Demon Knights since I've read things that might please me, but I think that when I'll be done finding the old pre-New 52 trades on my list, I'll be pretty much done.
