Just a few of Helena Bertinelli’s friends and allies that I miss and are currently, not in action.
All of the friendships and alliances she formed are now gone, thanks to the
unnecessary mess of a reboot.
(In case you’re wondering why Black Canary is here, it’s because the current BC is Dinah Drake, not Dinah Lance. And as for Barbara, she’s currently around as Batgirl, but Oracle doesn’t exist. Well, at least not as a human being.)
I miss her and her friendships with Vic, Tim, and Dick, but they all exist (technically) so…*sobs*
I miss them all too.
It’s part of the reason why I’m really unhappy with the fact that they retconned Tim Drake from Robin to Red Robin.
In addition to you know, like stripping Tim Drake of everything that made him Tim Drake in the first place, it also meant that his previous friendships and relationships were eradicated, including the one he had with Helena.
And I always liked how Tim was the only member of the Bat Family who was actually nice to Helena, and give her a chance. He was even willing to disagree with Bruce and take Helena’s side on certain matters. That’s a testament to not only bravery, but loyalty, and a sign of just how much Helena’s friendship meant to him.
Anyways, I’m going to try not to head off to a corner and sob now.
Oh, it’s too late. *the waterworks begin*
