Janín and Geoff Johns Usher in a New Age for the Justice Society

Regarding the Huntress’s presence within the new title, Janín’s collaborator and veteran JSA scribe Geoff Johns defined in an interview with CBR why he picked her to be the main focus of the opening storyline. As famous by Johns, he finds the Huntress fascinating resulting from her finally “[taking] on the legacy of her father,” Batman, although she knew the Dark Knight otherwise than anybody else did.

“On page two in Justice Society of America #1, you’ll see how she’s interpreted Batman’s legacy and who she is, what her purpose is, and why she’s joined the Justice Society of America to carry that out and what that means because it’s not what you think,” he added. “It doesn’t represent what you’d think. She says it in the issue — for most people, he represents fear and vengeance, but she sees it as something different, and you see clearly why in the issue; what the legacy of Batman is, through the eyes of Helena Wayne, what it’s interpreted as, and what she’s going to do with it.”
