Curious to know as we're building our year - which characters do you guys want to see really spotlit in 2018?— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) November 1, 2017
Since we both follow each other's Twitter accounts, naturally I had to respond:
If you can help bring back Pre-Crisis Helena Wayne Huntress with Power Girl and the JSA, that will mean a lot to me in 2018, Scott. Thanks!💕— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 1, 2017
Later in the day, Scott posted the top picks fans want to see in 2018. Guess who made the list?
So it seems like tops are— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) November 1, 2017
So far, we're off to a good start! However, this morning, Scott has two new questions for fans:
As we head into planning 2018-19, what are dream books you'd like to see at DC? Not creator teams. Just premise. Ex: Titans starring...— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) November 4, 2017
We have huge stuff planned post Metal, but I love knowing what you guys are hungry for so we can give you the best stories— Scott Snyder (@Ssnyder1835) November 4, 2017
My responses came as follows:
World's Finest relaunch with Helena Wayne Huntress and Power Girl (classic versions, not New 52 versions). Also, Justice Society of America. https://t.co/0z9xrzeULF— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 4, 2017
Definitely for Power Girl to be reunited with Helena Wayne again, even if Helena comes back as a survivor of pre-Crisis Earth-2 like Kara. https://t.co/cIlnKYWfCU— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 4, 2017
.@Ssnyder1835 To elaborate, I felt Power Girl being the sole survivor of Earth-2 made her story too sad and tragic, and not fitting of Kara.— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 4, 2017
By reuniting her with the classic Helena Wayne Huntress, she will at least get one part of her life back, and get more stories with both.— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 4, 2017
I know Tom King is looking to marry Bruce and Selina, which is great! It's long over due, but! a baby Helena won't won't satisfy my needs.— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 4, 2017
It has to be the original pre-Crisis Huntress who's friends with Power Girl and a member of the Justice Society. That will make me happy! 💕— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 4, 2017
I want to say thank you again for doing this, Scott. 2017's been rough (real world-wise), but Huntress, Power Girl, JSA would be win for me.— Helena Wayne 🍁 (@HelenaWayneBlog) November 4, 2017
I have to admit, this is starting to make me feel optimistic again since Rebirth this year felt a bit underwhelming compared to last year (which I'll discuss in my end of the year review), but this gives me something to look forward to.
I really do want the Helena Wayne we get next year to be the pre-Crisis original. As I discussed in my Huntress: Dark Knight Daughter post two days ago, the core of Helena's character is this:
1. Daughter of Golden Age Batman and Catwoman
2. Original Huntress
3. Second Generation World's Finest Duo with Power Girl
4. Member of the Justice Society
If Scott Snyder manages to work our Classic Helena Wayne back into DC's mainstream continuity, as I said in my tweets, it will definitely make my year in 2018. It'll be the first time since 2016 that I feel excited, even optimistic about my girl's future.
If any readers on here have a Twitter account and would like to let Scott know that you too would like to see Classic Helena Wayne return with Power Girl and the Justice Society next year, we have until Monday to respond his tweets. Monday is when he will travel to Burbank to discuss plans with DC for the 2018-2019 year.
Yeah guys! This is really happening! Let's get our voices out there so that we can hopefully get back the Helena Wayne, Power Girl, and Justice Society we want to read!
If you don't have a Twitter account, leave a comment on this post and I'll link this post to Scott.
Thank you all!
