Huntress is Awesome Week: Huntress Joins the JLA|
Someone posted a line here once about Huntress that cracked me up (please claim it if it's yours) "She's so crazy, she's Batman's Batman." Crazy Huntress is an image that's she had (and at times deserved) and still has for those not overly familiar with the character. (i.e. BFTC "The Network") Here's a look at a time in the early part of Helena's career showing just how awesome, competent and uncrazy she could be. From the September 1999 issue of Justice League of America are 7 pages telling how she joined the JLA.

It's the nice ones you have to watch out for: When patient people lose it|
This is cut from Mister Miracle, Volumn 2, #11(22 pages). Scott and Barda settle in the small town of Bailey, Connecticut, trying to have what they think is a "normal" life and so far, it hasn't been so successful. Trying to maintain a secret identity while being attacked by an arch-nemesis, drone clones and various other problems, has pushed scott to the limits of his patience.

Supplementary Tomorrow Woman post|
Aside from what I've shown of Tomorrow Woman in my previous (not so mega) mega post
She's made two more cameo appearances that I hadn't included in my original post, one most people might have seen since it was in 52 but another that was in a much less known little story
Just a little going away post for SD since I'm going on vacation to visit my family in Greece for a month tomorrow afternoon.. Nothing like Tomorrow.

Mr. Miracle's funeral, Justice League America #40|
I had a request in an earlier JLI post I did for a page of Superman and Batman talking after Mr. Miracle's funeral. Naturally, I can't just do the one page, because the whole funeral is so awesome. Six pages of a 22-page comic, plus preview (plus a few non-comic images), not my scans.
So yeah, starts out with big fight with Despero, which J'onn ends...
BTW, this seems as good a post as any to throw this out there. It didn't strike me back in the 80s because I hadn't seen the movie, but now that I've got both the first JLI trade and the Omen series box set, I'm wondering if deMatteis modeled his Max Lord on Sam Neill as the adult Damien Thorn? Check it out:
What say you, s_d? Do we have a match?
