First Look At Ashley Scott As The Huntress For Crisis On Infinite Earths

Since the official announcement Ashley Scott will be reprising her Birds of Prey role as the Huntress for the upcoming CW DCTV crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths, it has been an exciting couple of weeks for me as a Helena Wayne Huntress fan. Not just because Ashley Scott was my first exposure to the Huntress at all, but because she's also been revealing in the past couple of weeks how much this role has meant to her.

This week, Scott began shooting her first scenes for The Flash S06E09 and revealed in an Instagram post the emotional experience she had slipping back into the Huntress costume for the first time in 16 years:

The Best of the Huntress: Wonder Woman #271 Review

Title: Wonder Woman #271
Story: Into Darkness Once More
Characters: Huntress (Helena Wayne), Harry Sims, Carole Martin, Solomon Grundy
Creators: Paul Levitz (writer), Joe Staton (artist)
Publication Date: 12 June 1980
Available In: Unavailable (for now...)

Summary: Helena Wayne visits the graves of her parents as the Huntress hoping that the comfort of their gravely 'presence' would help her train of thought as she investigates her current case. As she thinks back on the earlier events of her day, an old friend of hers—Winston Pitt—visited her law firm hoping to file a lawsuit against the museum exhibiting his paintings for the destruction of his work. Helena laments not being able to offer her services as a public interest lawyer, but agrees to help him in another capacity (as the Huntress). Following the clues of her investigation, Helena is led not to a petty vandal, but to one of the Green Lantern's deadliest villains!

The Crisis Of What Went Wrong In Infinite Reboots

October is here and so is the NYCC for the year. Over the past two days, DC teased a major announcement that would be released on Friday. Sometime yesterday afternoon, DC co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio revealed that they are working on an ultimate DC timeline that would provide the connective tissue for DC’s past, present, and future.

Top 5 Reasons All-Star Comics: Only Legends Live Forever Should Make Everyone's Trade Collection

It is the last day of September, which means we are literally two weeks away from the release of All-Star Comics: Only Legends Live Forever to comic book retailers, and three weeks away from the book being sold in the mainstream market.

Originally, the new Bronze Age JSA omnibus was supposed to be released in August of this year, but for some reason, the release date got pushed back to September, then later October. Fortunately, it appears the book will finally be hitting the stands sooner rather than later.

While the book is definitely a must for every fan of the Justice Society, it is also a must have for Huntress and Power Girl fans. Here are the Top 5 reasons All-Star Comics: Only Legends Live Forever should be a part of your collection.

Ashley Scott Set To Reprise Her Role As The Huntress For The CW's Crisis On Infinite Earths

For almost a year now, DCTV fans have known that a CW adaptation of Crisis on Infinite Earths was on the horizon as the big Arrowverse event for 2019. What no one anticipated was the network going all out with the event by inviting every actor who has ever portrayed a DC Comics character either on television or on film to participate in the crossover.

From Kevin Conroy who voiced Batman in various animation shows and video games, to Burt Ward who played Robin in the 1966 Batman show, to Smallville's Tom Welling and Erica Durance, and even Brandon Routh from the 2006 Superman Returns film reprising their roles, Crisis on Infinite Earths is increasingly becoming a love letter to DC in other media. Today, the 2002 Birds of Prey star Ashley Scott confirmed on Twitter that she will be reprising her role as The Huntress for the event:

Batman Day 2019: What If Helena Wayne Survived Crisis On Infinite Earths?

The idea for this post was actually presented to me by another fan on Twitter who requested that I write about how Helena Wayne's life would've panned out from her last pre-Crisis appearance (Crisis on Infinite Earths) to now. Specifically, what would her status quo be? What relationships would she still have? Would she still have the same career? Live in the same location? Wear the same costume? Have unique gadgets and vehicles to assist her in her Huntress missions? Would her role in the Justice Society be the same or change?

Top 3 Reasons Helena Wayne And Helena Bertinelli Should Be Separate Characters

Today is the canonical birthday of the pre-Crisis Helena Wayne Huntress as established in the back matter pages of Infinity Inc #7. 1984 was a great year to be a Huntress fan because in addition to helping kickstart Infinity Inc which further explored the legacy of the Justice Society, she was central to Earth-2's main event for that year: America vs the Justice Society of America. DC was also starting to recognise the popularity of the Huntress by this time that they began the initial work to launch the character onto her own ongoing series.

Then Crisis on Infinite Earths happened in 1985.

Justice League vs Doomsday Clock: The Journey Into DC's Past, Present, And Future Continues

Today is the release of both Doomsday Clock #11 and Justice League #31, both of which have a unifying theme concerning the DC Universe's susceptibility to change, but have yet to offer any insights into its future direction. At the moment, both stories are offering their own interpretations for why the DC Universe changes the way that it does.
