- Helena has quite a legacy to live up to. How would you handle such a legacy?
By being a disappointment, probably.
- 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?
A hero in general? No. But it kind of feels like a pre-requisite for a Batman themed 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?
On one hand, he has a LOT of experience in the realm of fighting crime. On the other, said experience heavily comes from him openly flaunting and breaking the law on a nightly basis, so…kinda?
- Overall what did you think of these stories? What about Helena’s trip to Earth 1?
The Super-Star issue that introduced Huntress was pretty good. Not only was Huntress’ story told well, but so was Green Arrow’s. I forget who the other one was, but I remember liking that one well enough too.
The All-Star issues were really good – way better than the Roy Thomas issues that we started with, honestly.
The Batman Family issues were mostly good, with some elements I didn’t like. The Batman stories were good, especially the ones with Michael Golden doing the art. Robin’s was decent, though not as good as the more Bronze Age-era back-ups he had in Batman/Detective. Batgirl’s probably the weakest, partly because I never liked her turn as a Congresswoman, and there was a surprisingly lot of racist material against Asain people in it.
As for Huntress’ stories there, it was getting pretty interesting. Sad to hear that the next part isn’t digitalized.
