- # 12 (Day 14) Helena Bertinelli meets Stephanie Brown, and they bond over what losers their fathers are
In the forerun that led up to No Man’s Land, Helena Bertinelli crashes into Stephanie Brown (literally) and the two of them soon bond over several commonalities, chiefly the fact that both their families are run by (or overran) by no good hoodlums.
Though Stephanie is initially taken aback by Helena’s methods (including how Helena wants to take out her father, and not necessarily for dinner), Steph does agree that Gotham needs a few more buttkickers who have a take charge attitude.
Despite how she channels her intensity into an excess of violence here, Helena does perform a few heroics to keep the civilians caught in the middle of the action here, safe (chiefly against the rampaging Monsoon).
Helena would later channel that intensity and learn to temper it, in order to help people in need during the saga that would immediately follow Cataclysm.
Sidenote: Given how much Steph and Helena have in common, I often wish they would have worked together more. Talk about a dream.
