5 DECEMBER | Earth-2 Huntress saves Batman from getting gunned down.
4 DECEMBER | Batman stops a bad Santa from delivering illegal documents.
My only hope for Batman vs. Superman is that Diana isn’t shoved to role of love interest (or worst, love triangle bait with Lois or for Bruce and Clark). I mostly want her to be the awesome hero she is alongside Clark and Bruce and prove that she does deserve her own movie. I want her to have her own story, more than the typical female role in action movies
I have similar thoughts as well. I guess this is a ‘wait and see’ type deal. :/
Anonymous asked: You've stated a few times that the New 52 Huntress comes off as bisexual. Are there any panels in particular that come to mind that give off those vibes? I'm very interested in seeing your insight on this one. :)
A lot of the hints that she might be bisexual are largely in her body language and in her tendency to flirt with both men and women. Even her use of verbal language can be construed as double entendres in some cases.
In contrast with the pre-Crisis Helena Wayne who was very straight in her behaviour even around Karen, the New 52 version of her often behaves in ways that suggest she’s attracted to Karen.
Anyway, onto those panels! (There’s a lot).

Thanks so much! Thrilled about the crossover. Working with Paul has been a blast and the characters are tons of fun. Newsarama did a two part interview with us about it — feel free to check it out:
Anonymous asked: how do you feel that there is no infinity inc. or JSA legacy characters like jade or cyclone, and if there where a second earth 2 title that wasn't so grimdark would you read it?
The loss of Infinity Inc was one of the reasons I disliked deaging the JSA characters into 20-something-year old superheroes. Not only did I like the fact that there was age diversity amongst the JSAers, but I also liked that the majority of Infiniters were the children of those JSAers. Together they formed the second generation superheroes on Earth-2, and it was another truly unique aspect of Earth-2 that was lost with the reboot.
For me to pick up another Earth-2 book that isn’t the main title would depend on the premise. If it’s an Earth-2 book that explores its history, establishes how Wonder Woman became that world’s first superhero, how Bruce Wayne went from being an angry ten-year-old boy who became Batman to becoming a married man with a daughter, and showed more of Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s history on Earth-2, I’d be all over that book.
If they similarly released a more character-centric book that focused on Huntress, Power Girl, and Fury as their world’s second generation Trinity, explored their histories a bit more, and actually developed them into influential heroines on Earth-2, I’d be all over that as well.
Any other DC Earth-2 book that simply focused on another Earth-2 character under the current circumstances, however, I probably wouldn’t pick that up. Not because I’d dislike the character per se, but because the Earth-2 we’re getting right now is not living up to any of the things I liked about the original. That’s really the main put-off for me, amongst other things.
Anonymous asked: You didn't like Man of Steel or you don't like Superman? Choose wisely.
I didn’t dislike the film itself, I just felt that they squandered a good half of the story on destruction porn.
I do think the film did right in presenting Superman as a beacon of hope, which is how he should be represented. I just wish there was more character development and far less ‘crush, crush, crush, and demolish.’
