La Cacciatrice (Chiesa di Helena Bertinelli)

# 9 (Day 16) Helena nearly makes the ultimate sacrifice
In Detective Comics #74, Helena stands defiant and alone against The Joker as she tries to prevent him from kidnapping Gotham’s youngest and most vulnerable residents: babies.
Helena ends up paying a price for her perceived transgression against The Clown Prince of Crime.



Despite the fact that her efforts to prevent the madmen from kidnapping the children were rendered futile, her heroism shines through as a pillar of humanity during the city’s darkest hour.
And her defiance is worthy of praise, as she still refuses to succumb, even as her blood transmogrifies the snow.



Her heroism is even acknowledged by the other heroes in Gotham, despite their mistreatment of her. She’s even rewarded for her actions with a kiss by Dick Grayson.
Encapsulated in these scenes are Helena’s most resiliant traits: bravery, defiance, selflessness, sacrifice, and compassion. It’s everything I love about the woman captured in one place, and it’s why I’m proud to call myself a fan.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it once again, but this is truly Helena Bertinelli’s finest hour.

Thanks for the follow

Greetings new followers.

I’m sending a few panda bears your way to hug you.

I haven’t greeted new followers in a while, and my penance for it is to send something soft and fluffy your way to make up for it.

On this day 25 years ago Helena Bertinelli made her debut

But, not all of these are Helena Bertinelli. Some are Helena Wayne. They aren’t at all the same people.

For the record none of these are Helena Wayne. I made this photoset. I can name each comic and show they came from. If you’re referring to the top two photographs, the first is from Huntress vol1 which she debuted her original origin in which her parents were killed when she was 19, the second is from Huntress v2 from 1993 and the other questionable one is the bottom right corner which is from the Injustice comic which is Helena Bertinelli. Perhaps you should do your own research first before jumping to conclusions.

  • # 10 (Day 15) Helena Bertinelli rises to to the occasion, and becomes The Bat that Gotham needs 

In the Zero Issue of No Man’s Land, Helena finds inspiration in the totemic power of the Bat symbol, and dons it in order to become The Bat. And by doing so, she also helps bring temporary order to a city ridden with strife.

Despite the pain and mistreatment she endures, No Man’s Land would go on to become Helena’s finest hour.

  • # 11 (Day 14) Helena Bertinelli meets Stephanie Brown, and they bond over what losers their fathers are

In the forerun that led up to No Man’s Land, Helena Bertinelli crashes into Stephanie Brown (literally) and the two of them soon bond over several commonalities, chiefly the fact that both their families are run by (or overran) by no good hoodlums.

Though Stephanie is initially taken aback by Helena’s methods (including how Helena wants to take out her father, and not necessarily for dinner), Steph does agree that Gotham needs a few more buttkickers who have a take charge attitude.

Despite how she channels her intensity into an excess of violence here, Helena does perform a few heroics to keep the civilians caught in the middle of the action here, safe (chiefly against the rampaging Monsoon).

Helena would later channel that intensity and learn to temper it, in order to help people in need during the saga that would immediately follow Cataclysm.

Sidenote: Given how much Steph and Helena have in common, I often wish they would have worked together more. Talk about a dream.

So, for part 13 of the Tim Drake Special Move Clinic, something a little different. As you can see, in this pic, Tim is NOT correctly performing his signature move. One foot for two different opponents? HERESY.
Fortunately, the ever-talented Helena Bertinelli is on hand to demonstrate the proper execution of the Double Drake Dropkick. That is, two feet, one opponent. And she gets him right in the face like a badass too.
If he hadn’t first used this move on King Snake back in the first Robin mini, I’d be willing to accept the theory that Helena taught him the move, since the above scene was in Robin: Cry of the Huntress, still before he gets his own ongoing.

# 12 (Day 13) A Helena scorned teams up with the Birds of Prey
Even if Barbara isn’t exactly enthused with the prospect of working with both Helena Bertinelli and Selina Kyle, she eventually comes around to becoming accepting of both, and eventually embraces Helena as a friend.
Though it doesn’t happen during this issue (which is Birds of Prey: Manhunt #1) it does plant a few seeds that will inevitably blossom into a fruitful relationship.
