    Justice League Unlimited.

    She had good chemistry with The Question.

    Same here, that version is my favorite for the reason outlined, plus, she was pretty distinct as a character in her own right.

    A non-brainer - Helena Wayne.

    She is my second favorite version, another great take on the character.

    Probably Justice League Unlimited for lack of competition. Like Mr. Kenway said, she and Question were a great duo. The Birds of Prey show wasn’t great. Plus I prefer Bertnelli. The Arrowverse one was basically a villain of the week. And the movie version was good, but barely had screen time.

    A very good question! I'll give some reactions to each, from least favorite to most.

    Least: Birds of Prey: TV Show
    This is largely because not only is this the Wayne version (who I have no connection to, because I've never read any Earth 2 that I really loved, whereas I really love the Bertinelli version's backstory and character), but it's not even accurate to the Wayne version, since she's a meta, which in this horribly written show, is a really bad attempt to do the X-Men.

    Arrow - nothing against actress Jessica de Gouw - she's quite good in the role, and looks fine for the part. However, the writing for her character is beyond stupid - they at least kept the basic MO of the character - hates the mob because she was raised in it - but other than killing off her mom, they turn her into a really bad prop for Ollie and Frank Bertinelli to fight over.

    Brave and the Bold - this is a fun version, in both the cartoon and the tie-in comics, but her costume is really not very interesting, and they lost most of her backstory, and her character is mostly "amazing at archery and very hot." Gets bonus points for the amazing "Birds of Prey" song, though.

    The top two are kind of a tie - both are very good, but also somewhat flawed.

    Birds of Prey: the movie - Mary Elizabeth Winstead is really good in the role. Her backstory seriously gave me Cry for Blood flashbacks, and her action scenes were really good. I also liked her awkwardness - it felt like a way to get across how maladjusted Huntress tends to be, the reason that she kills - her lack of connections to any form of community or support system. However, obviously, the movie she's in is significantly weak in many ways, she's a very small part of the film, and her costume is pretty darn weak, though the last scene where she's fighting as part of the hero team was somewhat better, especially with the cross motif.

    Justice League Unlimited - closest to the comics, very competent, has the right backstory, I like the Question romance, Amy Acker is one of my favorite actresses - but it's just not quite there. Maybe it's the medium (kids cartoon), maybe it's the creative direction, maybe it's just that she's a very, very small character in a much larger universe - she got a couple of quite good episodes, but never really went beyond that to regular (though it's probably fair to say that there weren't a ton of regulars on the Unlimited show).

    So, to me, we're still searching for the perfect Huntress who could lead her own series or film, animated or live action, in the way that she has in the comics.

    When I think of Huntress in media, I usually default to JLU.

    Batman's daughter from an alternate reality (Earth 2, or whatever you want to call it). Perfect underline.
