Since I was a big fan of the Helena Bertinelli Huntress, I was very dismayed when DC eliminated her with the new-52 reboot.  But I recently learned that she has been a recurring character in the show Arrow on the CW.  So far she's appeared in four episodes: 1x07, 1x08, 1x17, and 2x17, all four of which I've now watched.  I have to say, I was quite pleased with her portrayal.  They actually managed to make her more ruthless than in the comics, which is a big plus in my book.  Sadly, 2x17, entitled "Birds of Prey," ended in a way that will make it difficult for the show to bring her back anytime in the near future, but it didn't preclude an eventual return, so I'm pretty happy.  Anyway, in honor of this, I decided to post a few pages from Birds of Prey: Blood and Circuits.

Behold: Huntress' dark(er) doppelganger.... )

Two panels from the current issue of Birds of Prey, in which writer Christy Marx solves one minor mystery...

After reading on s_d for some time, and not without nodding agreement on a regular basis, about the objectification of women in terms of super-costume designs... I'd pondered what the reverse would be like....

Really? Nobody's posted anything substantial from Birds of Prey 11 yet? Just the bits and pieces of continuity dovetailing with Batgirl?

Well. Let's fix that, shall we? 3 pages of Huntress and Catman doing some dovetailing of their own.

The setup: Huntress is chasing jewel thieves ("Of course there was a jewel heist. It's Gotham. And it's Thursday." ILU, Gail) who've shot a guard and taken a hostage - a severely asthmatic hostage with no inhaler who's a prime candidate for death by misadventure. She's slugging it out with one thug when Catman shows up, looking to revisit that, umm, whatever they had back in Birds of Prey v1 #106-107, I think? Hel maintains she's busy, so Catman agrees to help her hunt.

They find the second thug, and Catman loses points for hitting Rickie's pregnant girlfriend (in fairness, she was leaping at him claws-out at the time), but gains points for getting wounded while taking Rickie down and eliciting the name of a third thug; the fourth crew member, the client, none of them knew.

Which leads to this exchange )
