Heroic Hotness: Huntress

Huntress: The Girl Crush

Helena Bertinelli is a ride-or-die chick, and if she’s got your back, you are very lucky, indeed. She will eagerly snap a neck for a friend (or her students, if they’re threatened), but like her fellow Birds of Prey, she’s got a heart of gold. She is also one of the few female characters who can wear a silly outfit with a belly window and make it look stunning, even regal. I think of her as the slightly troubled, female version of Dick, and I’m still a little salty with him for acting all weird after they hooked up. Like any hero worth his or her salt, Helena does what she thinks is right, even if it means clashing with one of the Big Three, like Batman. One of my moments in Hush is when Huntress appears and saves Bats’ life. “She’s better than she knows,” Batman thinks. On a completely shallow note, I kinda have a thing for dark-haired comic book heroes who excel at hand-to-hand combat. Huntress’ combination of street toughness and beauty transcends sexual orientation and gives her the top spot on my Fictional Characters Worth Switching Teams For list.

  2. Couldn’t agree more about Huntress. She’s all about the hotness.

    One of my favorite bits with Huntress was when Black Canary was commenting on Huntress’ new costume (the current one shown above). Black Canary said something along the lines of, “Well at least Mr. Freeze doesn’t know if I have an inny or an outty.” LOL!

    Finally, here is Huntress at her hottest!
