...here’s a few facts on DC’s heroine...
In The Beginning
Justice Society of America, and had aged together, with Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle getting married along the way, and producing….Helena!
Her father trained her in criminology, and she also kept fit, but was headed more into a traditional legal career, until a thug killed her mother (and Bruce, as Batman, watched her die in his arms, mostly giving up his career as Batman after this). This event inspired Helena to become the Huntress, and capture her mother’s killer (Silky Chernak, for those keeping score at home).
Uncle Bruce"), as well as adventures of her own (and even fought the Wildcat foe, the Huntress, for the right to her name and dealing with her step-brother, Robin!). Her journey ended with the Crisis on Infinite Earths, when her world was wiped out…and she died as well.
Still, her tales can be read for those who want to, in All-Star Comics #69-74, Adventure Comics #461-466, Batman Family #17-20, Wonder Woman #271-321 (missing a few in between), Brave and the Bold #184, America vs. the Justice Society #1-4, the first dozen issues of Infinity Inc., a few of the later JLA/JSA team-ups in Justice League of America, and in the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
The Huntress returned as a new character, Helena Bertinelli, in the Huntress #1 (April 1989, by Joey Cavalieri and Joe Staton). Still a purple clad lady with a crossbow fighting crime (and the same purple and blue color scheme, reflecting a relationship to Batman and Catwoman, that wasn’t there this time out), this time out she was a mobster’s daughter, looking to set things straight.

She even had a little fling with Cat-Man (originally a Batman foe, but moved on to fight Green Arrow, and was a founder of the Secret Six, which also had Deadshot, another Batman foe co-opted by the Arrow…). Helena even changed the look of her costume a few times along the way…
Same As The Old Huntress
The Huntress was the daughter of a Batman and Catwoman (from a different Earth-2), but she had been that world’s Robin (and worked with that world’s Supergirl).
The two of them ended up in the regular Earth, and adopted the identities of the Huntress and Power Girl, and are trying to figure out how to get home in the Worlds’ Finest title, also written by Paul Levitz, and with art by George Perez and Kevin Maguire (and even Jerry Ordway, who drew the original Huntress in Infinity Inc., inked her in the later days of her Wonder Woman back-ups, and a few of the mobster Huntress in Birds of Prey…
Joe Staton to return when he has time from his Dick Tracy newspaper series!).
Proving, the more things change, the more they stay the same!
