In Earth-27, Helena Bertinelli is one of the more changed characters. One significant revision is her much more pronounced stint as Batgirl. This is not only a means to give her a stronger connection to the Bat-Family, but also as a way to merge influences from Helena Wayne.

I just don't get why you would need to change the Huntress's backstory. It isn't like this version of the character was ever a crucial part of the Batman mythos. If you were going to streamline things I'd simply edit her out and leave only the daughter of Earth-Two Batman's Huntress. Granted you don't have an Earth-Two but so many characters lose their fundamental characteristics without, or timetravel I shudder to think of Booster Gold in this universe, that they're no longer the character.

What exactly is changed? Seems pretty similar to most interpretations of Helena. Also if she was composited with Helena Wayne that would involve either Helena being drastically younger or Bruce somehow having a child to a Gothamite while he was abroad. Also Booster’s origin remains pretty faithful to the character nor does his mainstream origin require much changing to make it modern.

The increased stint as batgirl and increased connection to the Batfamily? Which is really not necessary for a character that was only really created because DC destroyed the multiverse and had to explain things like the Huntress in the new continuity. Which is usually what make these things simpler ultimately result in...more changes and convoluted backstories.

Or you could have Helena be set in a later time period like Terry is. I mean Batman marries Catwoman in this continuity just like Earth-Two Batman did so it's not like its impossible for him to have a daughter who follows her parents' footsteps. Well hopefully more Batman's than Catwoman's.

And time travel is kind of a big part of Booster Gold character. Be he an idiot glory hound or a secret defender of history posing as an idiot glory hound. Without that he's more "inspired by" than the actual character.

Glory hound, cash grabber, best friend to Blue Beetle, prankster... Booster Gold is much more the time travel.

Well Helena is a Gotham centered character so it would make sense she has connections to the first heroes of Gotham.

That is the role of Helena Wayne in E27 (though if you want to get technical 2027 Helena isn’t the same as 2017 Helena).

And not really. While mainstream DC has amped up the time travel aspect of Booster, Roy, not including time travel, amped up the glory hound trying to do good aspect.

This version of Damian reminds me on Dende from DBZ Abridged.

Finally, someone who remembers Helena served as Batgirl! So many people forget that.

:D I love pulling those odd nuggets out of continuity and make bigger deals of them

Really nice wrinkle you've added to her backstory. I really like the idea of her spending some time as a Batgirl, and being friends with Jason. Though I'd give his intentions a little more credit myself. 
You definitely seem to be pushing Bruce's relationship with Vicki. They a more steady item in your universe?

Bruce and Vicki is just the current relationship going on. As this series goes on, I'll explore more of his relationships... Past and present, from all manner of media, like Selina, Julie, Silver, Chase, Talia, and maybe even Lois Lane.
Bruce has commitment issues, but also needs to maintain his playboy image so he gets around.

Gotcha. Not many people talk about Silver, and even fewer talk about Chase. And I look forward to seeing a little bit of Julie.

Huntress is a jerk to the batmobile

She's definitely been spending too much time with Riddler.

Very impressive bio. I like how you've tied together elements from various stories and the nods to others. The use of Brentwood, for example, and the way she manipulated Jason being like her attempted gambit with Nightwing in their miniseries. Not to mention the way you tied in Helena's backstory to Jason's - it's all very impressive, as I said. I definitely like where you are taking Helena and I am now even more curious to see how she transitioned from Batgirl to the Huntress.

I can also see Helena and Jason making for an interesting pairing as Batgirl and Robin for the brief period they overlapped. Will you be telling us more about how Helena as Batgirl got along with Jason and then Tim during their time as Robin?

There's a big story arc that happens during that time that I would like to write about sometime. ;)

If by romantic affair you mean, taken to the desert and given a date-rape drug, then...sure. 

Also, SHUT UP DAMIAN. 

There's a reason you don't exist in my universe yet. 
Possibly ever.

Roy you should seriously just do pages upon pages of VOX conversations. 
They are hilarious!

Thanks. Something along those lines may be coming soon.

Taking a girl to the Batcave in order to get into her pants... seems like a good idea to me. :D (Big Grin)

Helena was quite the manipulator as a teenager. Quite the shock she had finding out dear old dad was a rapist. That Bat-bow sounds interesting. I wonder if it was a Bat shaped crossbow or similar to Ivy's in B:TAS

It is a bat shaped collapsible crossbow.
AzureVirgo's avatar
Assumed it was something like Deadshot's wrist cannons or Black Widow's gauntlets but built into her gloves.

Isn't Helena Bruce's daughter with Catwoman in some continuities?

A version of her, yes.
