What was up with Helena Wayne before she came to the main DCU Earth and became Huntress? Earth-2 and World’s Finest are two of the second wave of DC’s New 52 comics headed our way in May that focus on her move from one Earth to the other, and today, the publisher released a look at Robin by Kevin Maguire.
“Helena Wayne has been taught how to be the perfect Robin,” said James Robinson, writer of EARTH 2. “Assured as a detective, fighter, scientist, pilot and all around crime-fighter she’s been groomed by Batman to be the perfect caped manhunter (or should we say manHuntress) when she grows up.”
“Before coming to the main DCU Earth and taking up the mantle of Huntress, Helena Wayne fought crime alongside her father as the Robin to his Batman on Earth-2!” said WORLDS’ FINEST editor Wil Moss. “But how did she come to be on this Earth? And why did she decide to become Huntress? You’ll get some clues in next week’s HUNTRESS #6, but for the real scoop, pick up WORLDS’ FINEST #1!”
It is interesting that DC isn’t calling the current Earth, Earth-1 or Earth Prime, but the “main DCU Earth.” Could Earth Prime (old continuity following 52) still be out there somewhere?
