Monday brought DC Comics fans Jim Lee's design sketch for Batman of Earth 2, and today, courtesy of The Source, we get a look at "Worlds' Finest" co-artist Kevin Maguire's design for Robin.

Along with the first look at the hero's full costume, The Source also fills in some of the character's background in advance of her adventures as Huntress in the May-launching "Worlds' Finest" #1. Series writer James Robinson says, "Helena Wayne has been taught how to be the perfect Robin. Assured as a detective, fighter, scientist, pilot and all around crime-fighter she’s been groomed by Batman to be the perfect caped manhunter (or should we say manHuntress) when she grows up."

For fans who can't wait until May, series editor Wil Moss adds that "Huntress" #6, the final issue of Paul Levitz's miniseries, will start the ball rolling with regard to the New 52's alternate-Earth, offering hints to the character's decision to shed the Robin persona and clues as to how she came to be on an Earth other than her own.
