Anyway, what part of the Joe U is this in? Not the movie. Is it the standard IDW U, or the fact that it ends with Hawk stating what he states to Duke seems to make it more of a one-shot and we never see her again.

Probably done that way so they can gauge the interest in her.
If she's popular, she'll show up in the IDW comic. If not, then it was just a one-shot.

Helix, according to this comic, does have an extremely extensive background in the martial arts.

I just picked up and read the comic. I thought it was pretty good.
She definitely sees the world differently. Especially the way she was analyzing things outside the Tokyo Stock Exchange and during her training session. It kinda (not totally) reminds me of the way Neo see's things in the Matrix.

I don't see her as superhuman at all. She's just really smart. I think she'll be one heck of a character if she is written well. I have a question though: Is this an actual one shot? I thought they were doing a whole four part mini-series on her.

I also thought that is was gonna be a mini run but at the end of the comic it does say "the end" so as for now thats all we will see of her. She was a bad ass though! I freaking hope they bring her back, shes the most original cat ive seen in a looong time.
Shes not superhuman at all though, all this banter about the reality of comics vs. the imaginative fantasy fiction of comics is all for not!
The chick is a sick fighter, yes Hawk says she can master any style but Hawk knows as much about martial arts as Duke does about Gundam model kits!
Hawk is simply speculating on the fact that she can go in the ring against a practitioner of an art shes never seen before and woop ass. Yeah he does make her sound super human though but I bet if I trained a baby in modern combat and nothing more like the Spartans did in 300, he'd have "total organic combat awareness".
She was kinda ditzy too, like the hot cheerleader from our sophomore year that got distracted by brightly colored objects.....except in Helix's case its calculating how much coffee and dounuts the two cops across the street just had and based on thier height, weight and age how long before the go to the restroom.
Read the comic guys, its absolutely sick! and if anyone important is listening BRING HER BACK, WE WANT MORE HELIX!

I picked this comic up today. I thought it was pretty good. Helix as a character reminds me a lot of River Tam from Firefly/Serenity. I'd definitely like to see where they take her in the future

I read it. Honestly I don't think it explained anymore than the initial four or five page preview we've seen before. All that lead up and the story was frighteningly brief and felt rushed. $3.99 for a short story revealing nothing new and not really showcasing anything special about the character with eleven pages of random crap at the end of the book! I was looking forward to this, but I wouldn't recommend buying it to anyone that is looking for more answers. The art was nice though. Also why is her hair more black with some platinum-blonde underneath when the figure is very much the opposite? And why no freckles on my toy?

I liked it. I dig how ruthless Cobra is portrayed in the story (I thought the "what idiot gets a Cobra tattoo" bit was funny. Now I'm just waiting for a Helix/Snake-Eyes throw down (I can't see this character getting "held-up" for a few days and not be able to check in with Hawk-more like found out by Cobra and taken in for a few days of brainwashing then released back to the Joes) I'm looking forward to seeing more of the character
