YMMV: Huntress
  • Foe Yay: With Catman.
  • Internet Backdraft: The fact that DC brought back Helena Wayne, only to relegate Helena Bertinelli to an alias in the DCnU. This was made worse by the fact that, at some point, Bertinelli was a separate person in the DCnU, and Wayne started using her identity after she died. Fans haven't reacted well to a send-off of one of the more popular characters DC had in the last twenty years by way of burning a passport, as Wayne says Bertinelli "served her purpose."
    • Although said fans were kind of thrown a bone. Helena Bertinelli is apparently returning in the upcoming Grayson series spinning out of Forever Evil.
  • Les Yay: It's pretty obvious that the new Question, Renee Montoya, really has a thing for Huntress, but it seems to be entirely one-sided, since Huntress doesn't even know that Renee is gay.
  • Never Live It Down: Take a shot every time she's about to kill someone, only to be talked out of it by someone else. Congratulations, you now have alcohol poisoning!
  • Unfortunate Implications: Before bedding the Question, Nightwing, Catman, and a random blind date, Bertinelli was heavily implied to be a child molestation survivor. Before her Ret Gone status, this was only really focused upon in her 80s series, and never mentioned again.
