This is a Zinda Blake/Lady Blackhawk fan blog. Thank you for following me. I hope you enjoy my blog!
For all of you Lady Blackhawk fans, here’s a Zinda Blake blog. I don’t know if I’ve seen one before, but here’s one.
Cassandra Cain || The Black Bat
That 4th picture is actually of Helena Bertinelli and not Cassandra Cain. It’s from Shadow of the Bat #83…
See, that’s the cover. And if you read the issue you’ll find out it’s Helena Bertinelli in that costume (long before Cass Cain became Batgirl and Bruce gave her Helena’s suit).
And here too:
And if you don’t believe me here’s another cover art that shows Helena dressed up as Batgirl and holding her Huntress costume:
Here she is sewing the mask so that she doesn’t get recognized after she get paint all over her face during a fight:
Sorry for the long post, but I’m kinda tired of Cass Cain fans assuming that every single picture of a woman in that costume is Cass Cain. And I’m definitely tired of them ignoring Helena Bertinelli’s existence and role as Batgirl (and omfg don’t fight me about this, call her whatever you want but DC has her listed as Batgirl III and if you look everywhere on the internet she’s listed as Batgirl III, so I’m allowed to call her that without having an army of people whining about it.), even though she was the one who designed and made the costume Cass wore.
Posting this just for fun. It’s the first half of an eight page Huntress/Misfit story that was going to go in a Birds of Prey annual that didn’t quite happen.
I had almost forgotten about it, and just now found it.
Hope you enjoy.
Huntress (Helena Bertinelli) & Batman (Bruce Wayne)
A few instances of Bruce appreciating Helena. I’ve reblogged a few posts of Bruce acting like an awesome dad and not-dad to Helena Wayne, so I saw it’s fitting to compile the moments Bruce recognized Helena Bertinelli’s skill. I know they had a not so good relationship at the start, but he’s changed her opinion of her greatly and it really goes to show that Bruce isn’t that gloomy, cold-hearted character that the fandom makes him to be.
Hate or love?
Well, the way I see it, Helena doesn’t hate Thomas. However, she’s FAR from loving him. Their little dance that ended by Thomas licking her neck and her calling him a creep and then her throwing that meatball at him, that was more just innocent flirting, than confessing her love for him (as a lot of fans see it). And she did say that she only dates good guys, so Thomas being on the bad (well more like dark gray) side is certainly something that’s preventing Helena to date him or even allow herself to have feelings for him.
However we see in Birds of Prey Vol. 2 #11, that Hel is done with helping him (after he manipulates her), so I doubt she’s gonna wait for him to become good or give him a chance if he comes chasing for her.
So yeah…tl;dr: She doesn’t hate him, but she doesn’t love him either. She tried to nudge him on the right path, but he didn’t want it enough so she decided to stop wasting her time.
