DC Comics Cover Girls HUNTRESS Statue!
DC Comics Cover Girls Statue Series - Huntress - DC Collectibles 2014
The inclusion of Huntress into the super-popular Cover Girls statue series has been a long time coming.  She is pretty much a fifth or sixth wheel in the Gotham City vigilante game, but she has a dedicated fanbase and a steady stream of comics under her belt since her introduction in 1977.  Huntress was first created as Helena Wayne, the daughter of Batman and Catwoman in DC's alternate universe Earth 2.  In the 1980's the big DC Comic event Crisis on Infinite Earths did away with Earth 2, but luckily the character was salvaged, albeit revamped with a new origin and identity.  This new Huntress was Helena Bertinelli, a vengeful daughter of a murdered mob boss hellbent on destroying organized crime in Gotham City.  Flash forward to 2012, in the New52 title World's Finest, her origin is once again revamped/reverted.  Turns out she is indeed still Helena Wayne, but assumed the Bertinelli identity in order to obscure her other-dimensional connection to Batman.  I'm going to go out on a limb and assume this statue is the modern incarnation.  Let's check her out below!

The only odd thing about this statue is that from certain angles she has a very pronounced lean. 
It looks a bit unnatural, but not too bad.
