Huntress (DC)(Earth-2 - Pre Crisis)(01 - P.Brooks)

2012-05-11 14:01:21 aaronmoish Notes Some sources report that the name change to Tigress was "retroactive", and as having occurred in All-Star Squadron, before the Crisis. This would imply that the name change was not at all influenced by the Crisis and that her time as "Huntress" was a sort of typographical error on the part of the Gardner Fox Earth-1 character (since all Golden Age stories are recursively a fiction on Earth 1).

Other sources, however, say the name change happened in the post-Crisis Young All-Stars #6 (1987), as a voluntary, deliberate name change on the part of the character. This would mean she did, indeed, live a part of her life as "Huntress".

If anyone in possession of these books, and could shed further light on this confusing situation, we here at comicbookdb.com would be most grateful.

As an editorial aside, though, logic almost demands that the name change have happened prior to the Crisis, because it would be extremely illogical for Helena Wayne to have chosen the name of a known criminal as her crimefighting alias.

Until such time as definitive clarification arrives, use this character for all appearances prior to Young All-Stars #6, and Tigress (II) for all appearances after.

Huntress is the identity Paula Brooks took when she began to live a life of crime. Tigress is her heroic identity during her time with the Young All-Stars.

2005-12-28 16:47:29 DarthSkeptical Bio "Huntress" was the early name for a villain that was known as "Tigress (II)" since before the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

She was the main person to carry the Tigress mantle throughout most of the DCU's history, having only recently passed that mantle to her daughter, Artemis Crock.

2005-12-28 16:47:29 DarthSkeptical Notes Tricky character.

In truth, she doesn't exist as "Huntress" at all, when viewed from even from a late pre-Crisis perspective. She was retconned in the early 80s issues of All-Star Squadron to be the second "Tigress". Since that retcon wasn't the result of the Crisis, but happened before it, this entry should probably best be described as a historical reference, and not be used for issue entry.
