I'm not so disappointed. It seems like it's the same character, just with a different origin.

I ADORE Helena, but I'm not overly broken up about this.

While I do love Bertinelli, and her back story, for the most part, Helena Wayne does seem to channel her personality and skills..so it's not THAT bad...although to be frank, I would have prefer her to stay Bertinelli.

@jointron33: The ORIGINAL Huntress was from Earth 2 so you could actually say that the REAL Huntress is finally coming back

I would not call her the "real" huntress. She was after all a Post-Crisis New Earth rebooted version of Pre-Crisis Earth-2 Helena Wayne.

But she was a completely different character and that is a good thing. This New Earth Huntress was interesting, I always liked her, especially when written by Rucka and Simone.

She deserved a real comic book death, not this off panel BS.

That is not really the problem. Killing a beloved protagonist off panel is just awful writing and a slap to the face of every fan.

How could you take a character that had gotten so much development and then just toss her into limbo like she was never even relevant?

Oh wait, this is nothing new. The same thing happened to Wally West! -__-

Never really cared about Helena, so this doesn't really matter to me

Probably about not being overly broken up about it.

Mourn if you so choose, but she will return.

It's comics after all; no one stays dead.

Even if she isn't dead, they shouldn't have replaced her with Wayne.

This isn't really your run of the mill comic book death, though.

I've said before in other threads, I really dislike how there are multiple versions of a character, as I feel thats why some never got to the top level as Batman & Superman have. You cant get people into a character, when there are 4 of them. & if they like one, & thats not the one being used, well, there you go, you've lost your audiance.

& its even worse in this case as its moronic that Bruce's daughter is the same age as him. Make Helena Wayne from the future were she was trained by HelenaB, or even Misfit when she took over the role. But daughter from an alternate universe were time passes by faster is just stupid.
