I really liked the pre-Crisis version of The Huntress due to the fact that she wasn't just an alternate-Earth version of Batgirl, she was the daughter of Batman and Catwoman. That was a very cool lineage ripe with possibilities, and it was a shame to lose it when she was reimagined as Helena Bertinelli. It seems as though in the New 52 that Huntress is indeed Helena Wayne again, and only adopted the Bertinelli identity. I'm not sure if her mother is still Catwoman in the new continuity, but this is a step in the right direction.
