We’ve reached the end of this story. There were some great sacrifices, but Arthur is back on the throne in Atlantis and the JLA are alive and back in the present.

That’s an awesome space suit. Very Batman-Beyond.

"Uh, no." LMFAO ouch. Oh Terry. Precious precious Terry.

- #16 (Day 10) Helena Meets Dick Grayson
Helena and Dick’s first meeting took place in of all places, Black Canary #10.
After an explosion convinces a few people (including Dinah Lance) that Helena is dead, Helena washes ashore and then flees into the safety of a mob joint, close to Seattle’s harbor. There, she uses a PC and the newfangled World Wide Web in order to get a hold of Nightwing.
She needs him because she’s convinced she can’t enter the country of Karistan (a supposed Middle-Eastern country) alone. Dick heeds her call and helps her continue her mission of rescuing her former friend Beth, from the clutches of a despotic prince.
Unfortunately, I wish the story that introduced the two of them was better written. The issue (which was penned by Sarah E. Byam) was tainted with Orientalist tropes about repressive, Arab men, in a Middle-Eastern backwater, with the two
colonialAmerican saviors in the form of Huntress and Nightwing, there to lecture them, and to free their oppressed, brown women.
There’s even the use of a few racial slurs too (e.g. ‘raghead’).* The Orientalism is even more unfortunate than the tragic hair and costumes, Helena and Dick were sporting.
Aside from this, this issue is worth noting due to the fact that it is a significant moment in both Helena, and maybe even Dick’s life. And just like her encounter with Black Canary in the preceding issue, this tale would set the template for future stories involving the two of them, including their brief foray into romance as well.
*It should be noted that neither Dick or Helena used the slur. Some G-Man in a suit did.

'The only time I ever feel pride is when I look at Nightwing. I think he's the only thing I ever did right.'
Aww, Bruce. Daddy Bats strikes again.
Robin and Night Wing with bats! I mean why not make bat friends when you are in a cave all the time with them!
