How I Became A Helena Wayne Huntress Fan Part 5

Here it is! The moment you've all been waiting for. The moment I finally discovered Helena Wayne in the comics that set me off on this trajectory of devoting an entire blog to her in the first place. I suppose it was quite serendipitous that I did because unbeknownst to me at the time, I created this blog just weeks before Helena Wayne made her New 52 debut in the 2011 miniseries Huntress: Crossbow at the Crossroads. Today is the ninth anniversary of the first issue of that miniseries, so it makes sense to bring this entire origin story full circle on this very day!

How I Became A Helena Wayne Huntress Fan Part 4

Nine years ago today, I created this blog to talk about Helena Wayne as the Huntress, as well as review her comics and her other media appearances. What I haven't done until recently was talk about why I became a Helena Wayne Huntress fan and how I even got here in the first place. In the last three entries, I talked about how I missed my first opportunity to invest in the Huntress in 2002 due to losing interest in the WB TV shows I was invested in at the time, and because I had gotten invested in anime and manga during that time.

How I Became A Helena Wayne Huntress Fan Part 3

In the last two parts of my origin story as a Huntress fan, I talked about how Catwoman set the standard for the way I would invest in female characters growing up, and the female characters that ended up fitting that standard in my earlier fandoms. We now get to the first comic book character I invested in as an adolescent that not only followed the same standard Catwoman set all those years ago, but was also my real predecessor to Helena Wayne in more ways than one.

How I Became A Helena Wayne Huntress Fan Part 2

In Part 1 of my origin story as a Huntress fan, I shared my first experience with DC characters at the age of six via film and television. I especially talked about how strongly Catwoman resonated with me at that age and how she set the gold standard for the way I would invest in future female characters, including the version of the Huntress who is her daughter with Batman. Catwoman specifically set the standard for complex female characters who's goals and motivations were often (if not entirely) at odds with the lifestyles they led.

How I Became A Helena Wayne Huntress Fan Part 1

September is a special month for me. Not just because I was born on this month, but also because it's the month of Helena Wayne's canonical birthday, and it is also the month I created this blog almost nine years ago. At the time, I had recently turned 25 and I was still in uni. DC had also rebooted their entire DC Multiverse with The New 52 around this same timeframe. It quickly proved to be a very polarising time to be sure, but it was especially not one of my proudest decades as a blogger.

WarnerMedia Lays Off Numerous DC Universe and DC Comics Employees As Part of Restructuring. What Could This Mean For The Earth-2 Huntress And The Justice Society?

There is no sure way to bring me out of my unannounced hiatus faster than another restructuring of DC Comics as part of an effort to streamline services to AT&T business goals. Given that AT&T acquired a massive debt from their acquisition of TimeWarner and HBO back in 2016, the telecommunications company has since been pressured by their shareholders at Elliot Management to quickly recover that cost. This has no doubt been the driving force of AT&T's corporate culture over the past three years, with a few shakeups during that timeframe.
