The Huntress is a good hand-to-hand combatant, well versed in many weapons and tracking. She is also skilled with her hand-held crossbow.
Weapons: The Huntress carries a hand-held crossbow and also uses a variety of nets and bolos.
Bored college student Paula Brooks acted on one of her infatuations with famous big game hunter Paul Kirk. Studying every facet of his life and trailing him on some of his adventures as Manhunter, Paula decided to herself become a 'hunter of men'. Training with her Japanese gardener and studying a variety of weapons, she designed a large collapsible crossbow and decided to join up with Kirk and stow away on a mission with the Young All-Stars to prove her worth not only to him, but to join the group.
Her flirtatious ways and nearly sadistic fighting style caused some friction in the group; she accompanied them on a mission to protect Allied atomic scientists in June 1942. During a battle, she was killed, only to be resurrected by Gurda, a Valkyrie. The resurrection brought forth a darker side to her personality, splitting her away from her heroic career, into a downward spiral. After a brief attempt at redemption directed by Paul Kirk, she began a criminal career in the late 1940s, hunting down heroes, focusing on Wildcat in particular and renaming herself The Huntress.
