#69) - A rogue ex-government solo agent (although that may
merely have been a cover story for a deep mission), the Huntress used her
specialized skills and training as an agent for hire. Huntress' crossbow
was developed for her by Hawkeye (Clint
Archer) of the Judgment League:
Avengers, who somehow got the impression that Carol desired more
than archery lessons. But Hawkeye was wrong -- Huntress wanted his
best work, and she knew how to get it.
(Legends of the Dark Claw#1 (bts)) - In search
of the feral New Gotham madman known
as the Hyena (Creed H. Quinn), Huntress
found that Hyena's history was intertwined with the history of
Logan Wayne, a prominent New Gotham
techno-wizard, painter, sportsman, and walking enigma. To find out more about
Hyena, Huntress called in her markers at Langley Air Force Base and used
her push at the Department of Defense to access the banks of the super computers
under Maryland. Searching the classified databanks, Huntress learned
that Creed H. Quinn, Logan Wayne, and four other individuals went into a
secret Canadian project years ago -- back when there was still a secret empire
to battle. Since all of the records of the secret project had been
conveniently destroyed, Huntress assumed that something went terribly wrong
at the project. In order to learn more about the Hyena, Huntress accessed
Logan Wayne's dossier in the "top secret archives," and set out to snoop
around Logan Wayne's New Gotham penthouse loft.
(Legends of the Dark Claw#1) - "Through a Glass Darkly" - While the New Gotham vigilante known as Dark Claw (Logan Wayne) was battling the maniacal Hyena at the Gotham Gazette Printing Plant, Huntress was breaking into the penthouse loft of Logan Wayne in the artsy-trendy section of New Gotham. At 11:45 PM, Huntress cut through one of penthouse's windows and disabled its alarm system. She walked through Logan Wayne's art studio and up the staircase that led to the master bedroom.
In the master bedroom, the photos on Logan Wayne's dresser confused Huntress. According to what little information there was in his dossier, Logan was an orphan raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. But here there were photos of Logan as a child with what appeared to be his parents standing in front of a luxury apartment building in New Gotham, which contradicted the information in his dossier. Another photo showed Logan Wayne in the Royal Canadian Air Force, even though there were no records of his service in the organization. A third photo showed Logan Wayne in Southeast Asia alongside the mysterious Creed H. Quinn, apparently taken before the top-secret Canadian project. When Huntress opened Logan Wayne's closet, she found a full wardrobe of Dark Claw costumes, leading her to the inevitable conclusion that Logan Wayne and Dark Claw were one in the same.
Before Huntress could uncover anything else, Dark Claw appeared from a secret elevator shaft behind the closet wall. Dark Claw knew that the Huntress was Carol Danvers, a rogue government operative. As Dark Claw was deciding what to do with the intruder, Huntress explained that she was initially out to track down the Hyena -- not Dark Claw. Dark Claw explained the project that transformed Creed H. Quinn into the Hyena and brought Huntress down the pneumatic tube that led to the underground Barrow so that he could tell her the whole story. In the Barrow, Dark Claw revealed his personal history to Huntress, who deduced that Dark Claw had first met Creed H. Quinn while serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force.
Suddenly, Dark Claw's sidekick Sparrow (Jubilation Lee), who had been busy hacking into the Gotham Gazette typesetting computer, vehemently voiced her disapproval of Huntress' presence in the Barrow. Dark Claw explained to Sparrow that he could not simply take Huntress "out in the woods and loose her." Dark Claw had deduced that Hyena was at the Gotham Gazette Printing Plant earlier that night to go into the guts of the typesetting computer and interfere with the typography of the newspaper (rather than to plant a bomb as Dark Claw had originally suspected). Accessing the altered headlines for the next day's newspaper, Huntress, Dark Claw, and Sparrow concluded that Hyena was planning to poison the President of the United States with sodium-cyanide when Air Force 1 departed from Gotham International Airport in twenty minutes.
Dark Claw, and Sparrow immediately went into action. As Sparrow piloted
the Claw Copter alongside Air Force 1,
Huntress used her crossbow to secure a grappling hook on Air Force 1's landing
gear. Dark Claw then used the grappling hook to board Air Force 1,
and eventually saved the President from Hyena's evil scheme, although Hyena
managed to evade capture once again.
(Legends of the Dark Claw#2) - "This Claw, This Crossbow!"
- Huntress' true allegiances were revealed.

Marvel characters are listed in regular, or bold black type.
DC characters are listed in bold blue type.
Amalgam characters are listed in bold purple type.
Huntress (Carol Danvers)
Lee) do not get along. While
thinks Sparrow acts in a juvenile manner,
does not trust Huntress with Dark
Claw's secrets and constantly refers to
Huntress as a "bimbo" or a "slut".
In case you're confused, Amalgam Comics didn't really exist beyond those seen in the few DC/Marvel cross-over. The titles you don't recognize are amalgams of similar Marvel and DC comics--Snood.
is an Amalgam Universe version of DC's ALL-STAR
COMICS (vol. I)#69 (where the Silver Age
Huntress (Helena Wayne) of
Earth-2 made her first appearance).
