Has there ever been a character that's done a complete 180 from how they were created and no one has cared much less their creators have applauded it
It's not like anyone but casuals reads the Harley Quinn comics anyway. Meanwhile the original cartoon will forever be a classic that stands on its own without relying on shitty marketing gimmicks like "New 52" or "Suicide Squad movie!".
I don't think that's quite as dramatic a shift for her character as that time in the older Harley series where she went from her cartoony self having wacky adventures and antics to a humorless, stoic ninja in a weirdly serious noir-like setting
I'm salty that she stole crazy semi heroic clown girl schtick from Duela dent.
Oh sure, blame Tumblr for EVERYTHING that's gone wrong.
Harley Quinn? TUMBLR!!
Steven Universe? TUMBLR!!!
Tumblr isn't the root of all evil, 4chan. Grow up.
Why are you implying nobody cares that she's apparently a hero and role model now? She's committed causeless mass-murder on a scale few manage to achieve.
But apparently it's okay because women think her make-up is cute.
I'm not mad or even salty
I just think its weird how she became feminist icon for all the reasons tumblr usually hates
Hell the initial reaction for nu 52 harley was 1:1 with how they usually take things and then all of a sudden harley quinn is feminist and just like me special snowflake
Its how they like their characters now
no joke isn't ambush bug basically the 4th wall breaking chanel 52 character?
Unfortunately she does and now also lusts after her "dad".
remember when DC stopped caring about the morals of their heroes
They'll do more of this in the future and you could have stopped it
I'll never understand how they could justify Harley going good like this
I mean shouldn't her mental illness make her want to kill WW
shouldn't WW remember when she tried to kill her and Superman?
This comic has been more in-character for Harley than she has ever been in non-TAS based comics.
She's a ditzy, romantic clown, not a psychopath murderer. If they're keeping that characterization, it's important to move her away from the Joker, who IS a psychopath murderer.
And if you're gonna have her on her own, it's a good progression to have her resent the Joker who she can no longer have.
I'd rather her be "DC's Deadpool" than just "poor man's Joker"
I prefer injustice Harley
She misses the Joker terribly but moves on
I regard them as anti heroes
Villains are people who do evil things whereas people who do bad for a ethical cause or for money aren't evil
>I only started reading comics last year!
She's not an edgelord, she was never meant to be. Being a shitty murderer is what lead to the Forever Evil issue where she killed a bunch of fucking children.
Just because the Joker has been ruined by "muh realism" edgy fags over the years doesn't mean Harley does too. I'm not even a fan of her, and I'm not saying this to be "feminist" or whatever bogeyman you want to use to discredit other people. But in a time where the Joker no longer has a need for a sidekick and serial killer villains are a dime a dozen, I'd much rather DC return to a more unique identity for the character.
These are the kinds of people who want edgy Harley back.
Yeah man, look at those edges. I am sure the writer listened to Linkin Park while he was writing the plot. So much edge belongs in the 90s
It's not like Superman hasn't tried
Because he has bigger things to attend to. I mean, this is Emperor of Mankind we are talking about, there's bigger worries than some chick. It seems like you haven't read the comic
