Real Name: Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel
First Appearance: Batman: The Animated Series “Joker’s Favor”; in comics, The Batman Adventures #12
Powers/Abilities: Does being totally bat-sh*t crazy count as a power? Talented gymnast, above-average human agility and strength, martial arts skills.
Who Is She: Why do good girls love bad boys? Once a promising young intern at Arkham Asylum, Dr. Harleen Quinzel was assigned to be The Joker’s psychiatrist. The Joker quickly fills Harleen’s head with stories of child abuse at the hands of his father, and soon the brilliant, yet naïve, doctor’s fascination turns from sympathy into outright obsession, transforming her into The Joker’s faithful love slave. She will do anything for her darling “puddin,” even kill. Every time The Joker would take out his violent rage on Harley, and strike her, she simply said “it felt like a kiss.”
Why We Want Her: Being created solely for the ’90s animated series, Harley became a huge fan-fav in both the cartoon and comics. Her recent reboot in DC’s New 52 comic books has turned the slapstick sidekick into a straight-up sadistic psycho. This updated version of Quinn has no problem killing the innocent for nothing more than a quick laugh, and now has a big-ass sledgehammer to back up her big mouth. Plus, her origin story would be a cool arc for a talented actress to take on.
