Frankly it does nothing that this doesn't do better.
>those little gold boomerangs when there's no other gold in the costume
>those little spikes at the chin
Every Huntress costume has bizarre little design elements that bug me.
New 52 was my favorite but it turned out to be Wayne who's not even that Catholic so the cross doesn't make sense. And even it had chinspikes.
Grayson Helena just wears clothes but at least she's free of random fiddly bits.
Cyborg is supposed to be an athlete
Green lantern was fashionably asymmetrical woth the ring and the chest projector would never work in action
The greeks painted their marble statures
Power gurl lools bleh
>implying wondie would spend time upkeeping her paint
Agree on Cyborg though. "Skinny nerd actually becomes powerful" is the most embarrassing wish-fulfillment origin story. At least Peter Parker was a still a shameful sad sack afterwards.
Why can't I just get a good Earth 2 book, then?
I don't even like Helena Wayne's origin that much, but I find her charming and I don't want Power Girl to lose her best friend again.
>street clothes "costumes"
>fashion designer shit
Why are these threads always so fucking awful and filled with cringey people who want to pretend they're not reading superhero comics?
>She's mixed race, her mother was black her father was Sicilian.
And no Sicilian in the 70's would do that EVER. Literally no one. Afro-Italians are mixed with LYBIANS, not with blacks.
Hell, a mafia involved guy couldnt even marry a roman girl.
I think the important part isn't that they changed her looks, but that they actually made her an interesting charater, as opposed to Bird of Prey #734856923. I never gave a damn about the old Huntress.
Reposting my opinions on this shit b/c why not?
>GL is fine aside from the chest projector
>Superman's design is great for a Golden Age take on the character, minus the rape-face
>PG is fine but needs the boob window and maybe replace the blue with red.
>Cyborg is fucking awesome as an original character idea. Just recycle that shit for something completely different.
>WW is actually great and could work as a 'super form' of Wondy, like SSJ or something.
>MM is bad
>Flash is w/e
There, I said it.
Just put a cross in the middle of her chest and this redesign is GOAT
Livewire is fun to redesign, lots of possibilities
Americans being ignorant can't be excused by saying "it's fiction". The whole Cosa Nostra plays a huge role in the mafia, she was made black for the sake of being black. Just like you SJWfags say Black Panther HAS to be black due his background, Helena can't be mixed with other race if you will keep his mafia background.
She's a minor character with a tiny fanbase, noone literally cares that they changed her race, it's not like that shit with Johnny Storm.
She's better right now than she's ever been written.
>Who the fuck cares that she was made dark-skinned
I know Anglos tend to be pretty PC, but for fucks sake we are talking about the most racist country in western europe and the most racist people in said country, the fact that you are not racist it doesnt mean other societies can't be different.
I would actually like that a lot, and it would be possible, like the mob discovering he has a black wife after he became a boss or something. That kind of stuff could make you get killed, the 70's are not that far away.
Italians have plenty of dark-skinned models nowadays.
Also, implying Italians care about the way American comics portray them at all. It's not like they'll ever get it right anyway.
>It would be fine if they had changed her surname, give us a new Helena
Your Helena is Helena Wayne, a return to the pre-crisis version.
>She's better right now than she's ever been written.
I don't think you've ever read anything with Bertinelli before.
>Helena can't be mixed with other race if you will keep his mafia background.
Well, yes she can
It's fiction anon
Also you are assuming this was a random change to appease SJWs and not potentially a significant part of her background
There's was literally nothing Italian about the original Huntress either, apart from the mob boss father storyline, which of itself has very little to do with actual Italian mob bosses. Italians never cared about this character in the first place, since she's not Italian, she's how Americans think Italians are.
>Also you are assuming this was a random change to appease SJWs and not potentially a significant part of her background
Actually it would have made sense for her to look how she did pre-New 52. Remember Helena Wayne took over Helena B.'s identity on the basis that they looked alike when she came to the main Earth. So I believe they changed her to being black for diversity and ignored the Helena Wayne thing.
Well she was Italian-American. They lived in Gotham after all.
Bad fiction ignores verisimilitude, though they still haven't gone into her origins so I'm going to remain neutral until they've done so.
Because she can't stop sleeping with her step brother
>Remember Helena Wayne took over Helena B.'s identity
and that was retarded, because the only reason that happened was because Levitz thought he was writing a Bertinelli story and had to switch gears halfway through
>I don't think you've ever read anything with Bertinelli before.
Yeah, remember that one story when Helena tried to be part of the Batfamily, got angry at Batman, and then slept with Nightwing? Or that other story when she tried to be part of the Batfamily, got angry at Batman, and then slept with Nightwing? Or wait! There was that one gem of a story where she tried to get into the Batfamily, got angry at Batman, and slept with Nightwing!
Pretty good oversimplification there. Rucka always treated Huntress well, since she's his type. And in his Huntress stories, she was a central dynamic character who experienced character growth as opposed to a static supporting character in someone else's story.
That's her second best trait.
Hi! Few things to start off with =]
1. Yes I added you because you’re a female
shark, 'tis an awesome thing to see!
2. I’m Flipper.
3. Don’t be intimidated, but I’m not a stereotypical dolphin.
If anything I’ll be the one gnawing on surfer’s feet =D.
> not brown
Let's be honest. One good thing about the Spyral Helena is that she actually looks Sicilian and not just WASPy Helena Wayne. Hell. She even looks like a Sicilian girl I dated who was asking me what Huntress comics to read. Of course I was hesitant to suggest any since all of Helena's relationships end horribly. Not that it really mattered as things did end pretty quickly with us anyway. Damn you, Helena.
