  • Helena was born in 1957 to Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle Wayne, and grew up enjoying the benefits of being in a wealthy household. As a youth, she enjoyed a thorough education, as well as being trained by her parents, Batman and Catwoman, to become a superb athlete. As a young girl she was amazed to learn that her father was Batman and embraced Dick Grayson/Robin as her older brother. She also looked up to Alfred as a second father. After finishing school, she joined the law firm of Cranston and Grayson, one of whose partners was Dick Grayson, alias Robin. In 1976, criminal Silky Cernak blackmailed his old boss Selina Kyle into resuming action once again as Catwoman, an act which eventually led to her death. Helena, deciding to bring Cernak to justice, created a costume for herself, fashioned some weapons from her parents' equipment (including her eventual trademark, a crossbow), and set out to bring him in. After accomplishing this, Helena decided to continue to fight crime, under the code name "the Huntress."
  • In the year 1957 on the parallel dimension known as Earth-Two, aging hero Bruce Wayne and his wife, Selina Kyle, gave birth to a daughter named "Helena Wayne." When Helena Wayne was nineteen years old, a tragic mishap claimed the life of her mother. Due to the efforts of a former henchman named "'Silky' Cernak," a photograph revealing Selina Kyle defeating a policeman during her days as Catwoman emerged. Anguished by this stain in her mother's memory, Helena Wayne adopted the alias of "the Huntress" in honor of both of her parents. She tracked down Silky Cernak and arrested him, leaving his unconscious body bound in a net outside of the G.C.P.D. The Huntress also learned that the photograph that Silky Cernak had in his possession was doctored, meaning that her mother had never defeated anyone. With her mother's honor restored, Helena Wayne continued to fight crime as the Huntress, formally joining Dick Grayson as his junior partner and later becoming a member of the revitalized Justice Society of America as well as that of Infinity Inc. Helena Wayne would continue in her costumed career as the Huntress fighting alongside her mentor, Dick Grayson, in various cases including Dick Grayson's last case as Batman II against the Joker of their native dimension and apparently at odds with Dick Grayson against Per Degaton's time trap during the historic case against the reformed Justice Society (America versus the Justice Society #1-4). Together the new Earth-Two Dynamic Duo were present at the battle at the "Dawn of Time" during the Crisis on Infinite Earths and thus survived the initial reformating and erasure of their original home Earth and its history. Locating the elder former Earth Two Grayson and discovering that they were now without a history of their own on this singular Earth, Helena like many of the former Earth-Two heroes rose up against the Anti-Monitor's shockforce to defend the New DC Primary Earth. It was during this first battle that she was injured and knocked unconscious by the Thunderers' attacks which dropped rubble from a collapsing building on top of her. She was burned to death by the Thunderers along with Grayson and the former Teen Titan Kole who sought to shield her unconscious form. The three dead heroes' remains were discovered by the Earth-One Batman, Mary Marvel, and Jason Todd.
