Doctor Harleen Quinzel is probably most famous for her “mad love” romance with the Joker that prompted her creation in the first place. However, I would posit that Harley Quinn’s greatest partnership—and her greatest romance—is with another iconic Batman villainess. Doctor Pamela Isley is some 40 years older than Harley in publication history, but the two have enjoyed a relationship on any number of levels throughout the 25 years that the Clown Princess of Crime has been smashing hearts with her synonymous mallet.
The Dark Knight. The Caped Crusader. The World’s Greatest Detective.
Whatever you want to call him, Batman holds the distinct honor of sitting atop the hill as many fans’ all-time favorite hero and one of the most successful characters ever created.

Hyenas! Giant mallets! Puns! Harley Quinn’s always been larger than life, which means that you’re going to want to see her latest movie on the biggest screen possible. Fortunately, thanks to Warner Bros., DC Entertainment and Fathom Events, you can see the upcoming Batman and Harley Quinn alongside an audience of fans at a movie theater near you. The catch is that you only have one night to do it.
If you were a child in the 1990s, like myself, then so much of what informed our shared experience of the DC Universe came from the animated cartoons. For me, personally, this led to my ever-lasting affection for the character of Robin (the Tim Drake version, specifically), and when Justice League debuted I was given my first real and meaningful incarnation of Princess Diana of Themyscira a.k.a. Wonder Woman.
