    Default THE HUNTRESS/MATRON Helena Bertinelli Appreciation Thread 2021

    Let's give it up for Italian comic representation and kudos to the great Huntress Helena Bertinelli!!! We seriously couldn't have gone this long without creating one!



    Haven't been caught up in the comics but what has Helena been up to? Last I remember she was in the obvious DCEU influenced and forced Harley/Birds of Prey ongoing but wasn't that cancelled?

    Also what is your favorite Huntress costume from her vast selection of wardrobe since the start? May be an obsolete and minor one, but I loved her Convergence costume. I liked how it was able to correlate in all her past costumes into something a little more modern and still be sleek and simple.

    Is that a newly updated costume? Looks very similar to her Pre-Flashpoint one. Even the appearance as well since her hair isn't that curly.

    It looks like she's white again and made to look more like the movie version.

    Agreed. Glad to know someone else enjoyed the Loeb/Lee/Hush version of...

    Huntress

    Probably in the minority, but I'll always be a fan of the Jim Lee redesigned-costume:

    Looking forward to seeing where Jorge Jimenez's retooling of the Huntress look turns up. Looks influenced by her Matron look from SPYRAL and from the Jersey Girl look from the "Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)" movie and even the Jim Lee belly window... in a GOOD way.

    Not sure the cape adds much but looks like a simple and effective update.

    That’s a minority opinion? I mean the belly window is a little silly, but I think that’s her longest running iconic looks having been on Justice League Unlimited and nearly the whole BoP runs. It’s a classic!

    Here is a better look at the new design from Dan Mora's Twitter. I think it looks better without the cape. I wonder if they'll end up going a Wally & Wallace road with Helena or if they'll just ignore that she is seemingly white again.

    OMG! What a relief! Thanks for the support, Project Initiative Cascada!

    And I'm in total agreement with you, the JLU version is truly iconic:

    Huntress without a cape feels weird.

    I really hope to see a Huntress ongoing, maybe have alternating arcs with Prime Earth Helena, and Earth 2’s Wayne, or a backup.
