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.

Batman/Superman  #9 Preview
So. Two things about this preview:
1. First time we see the words HELENA WAYNE printed on the page.2. Superman acknowledges that Power Girl is Kara Zor-L aka Supergirl.
Dr. Anj will be very pleased to see this. :)

This is seriously turning out to be a roller-coaster of a week and not in a good way. Earlier this week, an avalanche of vile misogyny came crashing down on comic book professional Janelle Asselin for criticising the comic book industry on their failure to market books to a wider audience. It is a legitimate criticism when you consider that the goal of comic book publishers—like any other business—is to make money. She was especially on spot with the role that covers (and even teaser images) play in marketing:

Covers are important, but their job is also very basic. A good comics cover alludes to the story within, yes, but most importantly, it draws readers in. In comics, covers have an especially important role in marketing, a role that hits three or four times. A cover is often the project’s first impression, debuting online either in solicitations or other promotional campaigns.

I agree. And consistent with this discussion, my first impression of the teaser for Earth-2: World’s End is anything but good, especially since the teaser features the image of a young woman who appears to be dead in the arms of her grandfather. The seemingly dead woman in the teaser is none other than Helena Wayne (the Huntress) in the arms of Thomas Wayne, the new Earth-2 Batman. You can already imagine where I’m going to go with this.

Judging by the cover, the women are once again disempowered to service the men in the narrative. Not only is Power Girl seen being comforted by the new Earth-2 Superman, but I see Helena Wayne’s final fate will once again be to ‘die in a Crisis.’ Just like last time, only this time her death appears to affect her grandfather, Thomas Wayne.
I am not going to run out of things to talk about this week, am I?
