Publication history[ edit ] Helena Bertinelli was introduced in her own Huntress series, written by Joey Cavalieri and drawn by Joe Statonco-creator and long-time artist of the Helena Wayne Huntress.
Staton recalled, "I think Paul [Levitz] realized that I felt my involvement with Helena had been abruptly cut short [by the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths ], so I was always in line to be a part of any reworking of the character. In this iteration of the character, she was kidnapped as a child aged 6 and raped by a rival mafia don purely to psychologically torture her father, and is a withdrawn girl.
Her parents, Guido and Carmela, send her to a boarding school and assign a bodyguard for her protection where she learns all forms of combat. After she witnesses the mob-ordered murder of her parents at the age of 19, she crusades to put an end to the Mafia. She travels, accompanied and trained by her bodyguard Sal, before returning to Gotham to make her debut as the Huntress.
Helena Rosa Bertinelli witnesses the murder of her entire family in their home when she is aged 8; a young Helena Rosa Bertinelli believes Franco Bertinelli to be her father, but her father is actually Santo Cassamento, the don of a rival mafia family, who was carrying on an affair with Helena's mother, Maria.
Helena is framed for two murders, which puts her in direct conflict with Batman and Nightwing. In an extended retreat with Richard Dragon and Vic Sage The Questionshe tries to achieve better emotional balance, returning to Gotham to confront her true father and learn more about her family's murder.
She faces a choice between the more ethical woman she is becoming and the earlier Helena, who still hears the vengeance call as "blood cries for blood". She is in Sicilydays from turning 21 and receiving the inheritance from the murder of her family, which occurred before her eyes when she was eight years old.
Learning more about her family's murder, Helena adopts a costume disguise and weaponry to seek revenge, confronting not only the men who ordered her family's death, but the assassin himself.
In the process, she establishes herself as angrier and more violent than a standard costumed hero, foreshadowing the conflicts with more mainstream heroes, predominantly Batman. She crosses paths with Barbara Gordon destined, as Oracle, to be a close friend and colleagueCatwomanand Batman, who will become partial mentor, partial antagonist during her subsequent career as a Gotham superhero.
She states that her compulsion derives from the moment before her family was murdered, when she believes she could have acted to save them.
Relationship with Batman[ edit ] Batman rarely accepts the Huntress, regarding her as unpredictable and violent. However, when Commissioner Gordon questions Batman about his attitude towards the Huntress, Batman replies; "You know exactly why I don't approve You're not the only one she reminds of Barbara"—in reference to Barbara Gordonwho had previously fought crime as Batgirl.
Others in the Batman family feel differently; for instance, Tim Drake has a good relationship with her. Early in his career, he works with the female vigilante, and later clears her name in a murder case. Huntress is briefly involved with the Justice League International when she happens upon a brainwashed Blue Beetle attempting to murder Maxwell Lord.
The League is impressed, and asks her to join. Although League members help her on one of her own cases and she gets a tour of the group's New York City embassy, she never officially joins the team. During the League's restructuring following the Rock of Ages crisis, Batman sponsors Huntress' membership in the Justice League hoping that the influence of other heroes will mellow the Huntress, and for some time, Huntress is a respected member of the League.
Under the guidance of heroes such as SupermanHelena grows in confidence, even playing a key role in defeating Solaris during the DC One Million storyline; inspired by the time capsules students in her class had been making, she realises they had over centuries to set up a plan that would result in Solaris's defeat in the future.
She also helps the League defeat foes like Prometheus and encourages Green Lantern to fight the Queen Bee 's hypno-pollen during her invasion of Earth. She is later forced to resign after Batman stops her from killing Prometheus while he is incapacitated. To bring order to the city, Huntress assumes the mantle of Batgirland she discovers criminals fear her more as Batgirl than they do as Huntress.
Huntress refuses to follow Batman's exact orders and gives up the Batgirl costume.
Petit believed that extreme force was the only way to survive No Man's Land. Batman intentionally drove Huntress to join Petit, knowing she could keep Petit in line and prevent him from hurting innocent people.
On Christmas Eve, the Joker attacks Petit's compound. Petit is killed and the Huntress stands her ground, barely surviving the attack as the Joker and his men overrun the compound.The Hollywood Reporter is your source for breaking news about Hollywood and entertainment, including movies, TV, reviews and industry blogs.
