One of the subplots in Justice League Unlimited’s second season was that of the growing relationship between Huntress and the Question. This had its roots in the Greg Rucka storyline Cry for Blood, where Vic Sage’s Question comes to Gotham with the intention of helping Helena Bertinelli’s Huntress straighten her life out in the same way that Lady Shiva did for him in his solo Dennis O’Neil series.
Unfortunately, although the pair do grow close in the comics (Helena asks Renee Montoya about him after he eventually died of lung cancer), they never get to the stage DCAU’s Vic and Helena get to. This is due to circumstances forcing Helena to arrange for the murder of her bio-dad (who ordered the hit on her parents with the intention of having Helena, her dad and her brother killed so he’d have her mum to himself), who was attempting to blackmail her into being his assassin by outing her secret identity.
Vic, who is friends with notorious mass murderer Lady Shiva, disapproves, as the enter exercise was to try and help her be a better person… even though events meant that to Helena, that wasn’t an option any more.
