Sooner or later, the past always comes calling. For most people, this can be a problem. But for a mask-wearing vigilante, it can be downright deadly. In tonight’s all new Arrow, entitled “Birds of Prey,” Oliver Queen must try to right a past wrong as Jessica De Gouw’s Helena Bertinelli—better known to DC Comics fans as the Huntress—returns to Starling City.
Coming in May, DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave” will literally expand the world-building efforts of the comprehensive publishing initiative. With the addition of a parallel Earth that features prominently into both EARTH 2 and WORLDS’ FINEST, the developing narrative will encompass new heroes from distinctly different backgrounds, building on the shared universe in some surprising ways. “Helena Wayne has been taught how to be the perfect Robin,” said James Robinson, writer of EARTH 2.
In HUNTRESS #5, Helena continues traveling through Italy to seek justice against the treacherous Moretti and his flock of mobsters.
Her next mission? Assault an ancient monastery that’s guarded by the Italian military. But can Helena make it inside and find the culprit she’s looking for before she gets caught?
Don’t miss the penultimate issue of HUNTRESS, written by Paul Levitz and illustrated by Marcus To and Richard Zajac. Look for it in stores tomorrow.
