'Crisis on Infinite Earths' Part 3 gave 'Birds of Prey' a final farewell with Ashley Scott's Huntress making a brief cameo

Much like the show's time on the air, Scott's cameo in 'Crisis' also started strong, had a few slick action moves, and ended almost as soon as it began.

'Crisis on Infinite Earths' has destroyed many an Earth and in Part 3, the world of 'Birds of Prey' was the first to go. The show's star Ashley Scott reprised her role as Helena Kyle / The Huntress for a cameo in the episode just long enough for her and her Earth to be wiped out of existence.

For those who don't remember this short-lived show that aired on The CW's predecessor, The WB, 'Birds of Prey' followed the adventures of Helena Kyle, the metahuman daughter of Batman and Catwoman (who has cat powers in this version) who takes over her father's war on crime after his disappearance. She was assisted in this mission by Barbara Gordon / Oracle (Dina Meyer), formerly known as Batgirl, and a number of other heroes including Dinah Redmond, a character played by Rachel Skarsten who also appears on 'Batwoman' as Beth Kane / Alice.

The series managed to capture some attention when it premiered but the ratings fell pretty soon afterward and the show was canceled after just 13 episodes. Much like the show's time on the air, Scott's cameo in 'Crisis' also started strong, had a few slick action moves, and ended almost as soon as it began. 

Right at the beginning of Part 3, we see Helena trying to contact Oracle about the antimatter wave that's about to destroy their world. The last thing she manages to do before being consumed headfirst by the wave is to ask Barbara to evacuate their world before the wave of death hits. But before she can finish her conversation, her world is destroyed and she along with it.

It's a terrible death, getting cut off in the middle of a conversation by having your face disintegrated. Nobody should have to die like that, definitely not the daughter of Batman, no matter how campy her show might have been. But such is life, and though there's a chance that all the worlds destroyed in 'Crisis' may get revived, this is goodbye, at least for now.

'Crisis on Infinite Earths' Part 4 will air on The CW on January 14.
