I’ve been thinking…
if Kara and Helena have never left each other’s side for 5 years, Helena in particular never got close to anyone else but Kara, and on top of that, Helena acts like a total dick every time Kara talks about her sexual conquests, what does that tell us about the mysterious Helena Wayne who never talks about herself?
I mean, even Kara established other meaningful relationships on Earth-1, including having other friends. What has Hel been doing all this time other than beating up people as the Huntress?
(Seriously, does no one else wonder about that?)

Power Girl must break into Cadmus Island to free Huntress – but she ends up a prisoner herself!
So basically, one more narrative that depicts two women being incompetent superheroes because women! (Or just a lack of imagination on behalf of male writers writing women at DC Comics these days).
In more relevant news, if Futures End takes place five years into the DCU future, and Earth-2: World’s End takes place in the present timeline, where on two Earths does this leave Huntress and Power Girl?
(This new DCU is a bloody mess. But then, we already knew that).

Bleeding Cool covered DC’s All Access panel at WonderCon. Here is what they had to say about Earth 2 books:
Also coming up, we have Earth 2: World’s End, and Mike Cotton said that a lot of stuff happening in other books leading up to this will “come to a head” with Daniel H. Wilson writing, and Paul Levitz will be involved. It’s really “about the end of the world” and asking “How do you handle your world falling apart and fighting gods?” “It’s dark and mean and I don’t like happy endings” said Cotton.
If I had to bet, I would say at least Worlds’ Finest gets the axe before Earth 2: World’s End starts.
If that is indeed a dead Huntress on that teaser, that does not entice me to buy this weekly.
If she does in fact get killed because ‘I don’t like happy endings!’ DC can kiss my future money goodbye. This is bullshit.
Why do you like Helena Wayne?
Oh, that’s an unexpected question!
Please check out this amazing blog if you want to know everything about Helena Wayne.
This won’t be such a long post like my last rambling. I’m gonna try to sum things up.
1. She’s a DC character who is an awesome, ass kicking female and her costume covers her entire body. We need more ladies like her! Independent, intelligent, skillfully.
2. She used to be a lawyer who didn’t take shit from anyone. She’s nobody’s damsel. She’s strong and confident but accepts her weaker moments as well, just as a fully developed person would.
3. She might be gay and I love that development! I really hope they’re gonna go through with this idea (but only if they handle it the mature way they’re handling Batwoman in).
4. She has very powerful parents but is badass enough to step out of their shadows and leave her own mark.
5. She’s the daughter of my OTP with her mom’s looks and wits, and her dad’s eyes and sense of duty. Let’s face it, we all carry a torch for our OTP’s canon children. ;)
6. She has Power Girl as both her best friend and partner, which adds more to her appeal, at least in my case. :)
7. When I was a kid during Helena Wayne’s first incarnation, she spoke to me in a way no other female comic hero did. The fact that she didn’t have powers was part of it, but so was the fact that she was a grown woman. Batgirl was closer to Robin, but the Huntress was every bit a female Batman.
