Hello fellow JSA Club Members. We’ve been doing a lot of readings in recent months that have dealt with various teams connected with the JSA as well as the JSA itself. This week I thought it was time to change things up a little and concentrate on a single character who is connected to the JSA. I will be doing this periodically just for a change of pace and there are a lot of potential characters out there we could take a closer look at.
This week we are going to be taking a look at a character who is the daughter of one former JSA member and a member of the team herself: Helena Wayne otherwise known as The Huntress. Her father may be the Batman but her mother is none other than Selina Kyle. To see how this came to be lets call this meeting to order and get reading!

Readings for this week
- “Horoscopes of Crime” (Batman Family#17)
- “Choice of Destinies” (#18)
- “Gotham Town is Burning Down” (#19)
Helena has quite a legacy to live up to. How would you handle such a legacy?
Like father like daughter. Helena takes up the mantle of The Huntress because of her mother’s murder. Heroes oftentimes have some tragedy or other that is the catalyst for their creation. Do you think this theme is completely necessary for a hero?
So what did you think of Commish. Bruce Wayne? Do you think he’s qualified for the position and that he’s a good choice?
Overall what did you think of these stories? What about Helena’s trip to Earth 1?
And that’s all we have for this week.

For Next Month
Aurora is taking a break from the JSABC for personal reasons but the club will continue as it has been.
Next time we will spend the first half of the month taking a look at 1987’s Young All Stars and the second half we will cover issues from 2006’s Justice Society of America.
