Helena Wayne is the daughter of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle of Earth 2. She was raised to become Batman's eventual successor, first as Robin and later as Huntress.

Childhood and Origins

From a young age, Helena Wayne was raised to eventually succeed her father and was mainly raised by her mother while her father went out on nightly patrols. As a result, she was much closer to her mother than to her father. When it came time for her to choose her superhero identity, she rejected being the successor to Catwoman or be Batgirl, instead creating her own, which she coined "Robin Hood", though she dropped the "Hood" part of the name upon her mother's suggestion.

She would go out in the field as Robin with her mother, which caused an argument with her parents as Bruce was worried for her safety. Upon learning that her mother had died at the hands of criminals, she rushed in to get avenge her, but was very nearly killed. Her life was saved by Supergirl, and she became best friends with her since.[5][6]

Helena fought alongside her father as Robin. During her father's final moments she defended him from the Batplane by firing upon attacking Parademons. She witnessed his death when the tower he was inside exploded.[1] She and her best friend Supergirl entered a Boom Tube in pursuit of someone they thought was Darkseid, and ended up in another universe.[6]

Stranded on Prime Earth

Stranded on Prime Earth, Helena and Kara adapted to a new world. Helena, leveraging her knowledge of Wayne Enterprises, siphoned funds to help them settle. Initially, they sought a way back to their Earth, but with no success, Helena pivoted to crime-fighting on Prime Earth. While Kara took on the identity of Karen Starr and founded an R&D company hoping to find inter-dimensional travel. Helena stayed covert, frequently changing identities, notably as Helena Bertinelli. Funded by discreet withdrawals from Wayne Enterprises, she became the vigilante, Huntress, going after global crime syndicates for five years.[6]

Helena Wayne as Huntress

Helena returns to Italy to combat the local mafia after hearing their role in recent kidnappings. She meets with two journalists, Alessandro and Christina. By analyzing police reports, she learns of a man named Mr. Moretti, a man who's in charge of sex trafficking and gun running in Italy's underworld. Eventually cornering him on his yacht, she left his fate up to the girls he enslaved, escaping via a speedboat.[7][8][9][10] She then went after Chairman Hassan, which she kills in Amalfi.[11] As Hassan's son Mustafa learnt of his father's death, he put out a bounty on her, and Helena becomes a wanted woman as police officers started chasing after her across the country. She then confronts Mustafa and leaves him alive, warning if he would lay his hand on another girl she will take his life. She challenged him to a bet; if no one can collect on it in a year, he must donate two billion euros to charities for abused women. If he keeps his promises, she won't kill him.[12]

Helena later returned to New York City where she was chased by police officers. She was saved by Kara, who now goes by the name Karen Starr/Power Girl, and they agree that they should ally with one another again.[12]

Working with Kara Again

Eventually, Kara made real progress toward creating a way home after exploiting her relationship with Mr. Terrific to steal data on a device that could create a portal to Earth 2. Helena remained skeptical that it could be done, partly because of her pragmatic nature and partly due to her hesitance at returning to her war-torn world. However, Kara's device was destroyed during the rampage of radioactive villain Hakkou. Though they were able to stop Hakkou's rampage, Kara was forced to put their plans on hold.[2][13][14][15]

Helena met Robin when he caught her stealing from Wayne Enterprises. Quickly deducing her relation to Batman, Helena was forced to tell him the truth about Earth 2. However, it turns out that Damian was actually following a different thief and never actually knew about Helena. Huntress and Robin decided to team up to catch the other thief, and upon success, Helena made Damian promise not to tell Batman about her existence.[16][17]

After several other adventures with Power Girl, Helena's world was rocked when someone began attacking her safe-houses around the world. At the same time, someone disguised as Michael Holt began completely took over Kara's company. Realizing the two events were related, the two began tracking the perpetrator. Their search led to the Apokoliptan Desaad, who was stranded on Prime Earth in the same incident that brought her there. After being made, things escalated when Desaad began using his troops to attack Kara's labs around the world and raze more of Helena's safe-houses.[18][19] She later visited Damian's grave after learning of his death.[19]

Helena eventually meets the Batman of Prime Earth, after Kara started losing control of her powers and she needed some help. She told him the truth, and Batman agreed to help her after doing a blood test on her. After containing Power Girl with the help of Superman, she went undercover with Bruce to New Gamorra to find the cause of her affliction.[20][21] They were forced to pull out and return to Superman and Power Girl after Superman started being affected by the same condition. She tended to Superman as they found out that the cause of the Kryptonian's power malfunctions were caused by nanites.[22][23] As Superman and Power Girl were cured, they found a portal to go home, but unfortunately were forced to destroy it as Parademons started coming into Prime Earth. After that, both Power Girl and Huntress parted ways with Superman and Batman.[24]

Eventually, Kara got her company back and used the resources to create a machine that could open a portal to Earth 2. After taking a day to enjoy their temporary home and settle their affairs, the two attempted to use the device to return home, but Desaad attacked them, hoping to use the portal for himself. After repelling him, the two entered the portal and made it to Earth 2. [25][26][27] Reaching Earth 2, they found their world ravaged by war. Unknown to them both, Desaad managed to enter the portal after them, putting him closer to his master.[28][29]
