Additional Information
A daughter of the mob, Huntress began her crime-fighting career by targeting the Mafia families. Her methods were questioned by Batman, as she didn't show the same respect for life that he held. Toting hand-held crossbows, she eventually gained respect from the Dark Knight by single-handedly preventing a massacre on Christmas Day by fighting off a small army of Joker's henchmen. Helena is a core member of the Birds of Prey, a small unit run by Oracle.
Huntress is a woman of contradictions. Despite her often brutal methods, Helena holds strong Catholic faith. She repents the sins that she perfoms doing good. Huntress protected the faith sector during the No Man's Land and still patrols near Gotham's churches. She also teaches highschool English, betraying a vunerable, caring side to Helena that the Huntress often doesn't show.
Whilst it took a while for both Batman and Oracle to warm to the Huntress, both Nightwing and Robin had seperately been her early supporters. Robin occasionally lied to Batman about helping her, whereas Nightwing had a brief romantic tryst with the Huntress.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Huntress started off as an independant vigilante and this is the role I could see her taking in Arkham Three. Early in her career, Huntress was someone that the Batman has no control over, doing the same job, but without the same skills, resources or morals. A dangerous combination.

Essential reading
Huntress: Year One, Huntress: Cry for Blood, No Man's Land vol.1-5, Birds of Prey, Huntress: Crossbow at the Crossroads

Chances of appearing in Arkham3
8/10

I was hoping we'd see her in A3 after Vicki Vale mentioned her in the church

Huntress definetly needs to show up at some point in the near future. Red_Robin, your 'possible role' is exactly the same as mine XD

When I saw this for a second I thought that there was a Huntress DLC for the game and I was like ''Holy Hell! Hold on thight'' but then I saw that this was an 'Arkhamverse Allie' post and I was all ''Oh well, ok''... :oldyella:

All in all, great post! I really liked it! ;)

I doubt Huntress will appear. I very highly doubt it. Very, very highly.

Chances of Appearing in Story mode: 4/10
I would like her to make an appearance in the story, but not as a playable character. However it is highly unlikely.

I would probably give Huntress only a 5-6/10 just because there really isn't much about her yet in the arkhamverse...I think that she was only mentioned once or twice in AC. It would be pretty cool to have her in the game though, playable or not.
