The Gotham City troublemaker known as Harley Quinn got her start in animation. So it feels only appropriate that 25 years later, after reaching new heights of popularity, she’s returning to it.
I’m not entirely sure where you might come down on all of the crossover books that DC has been doing lately, but I am a huge fan! The very idea of the recent DC/Looney Tunes crossovers bring a smile to my face. The idea is very Silver Age and something that DC was doing spectacularly during that time period. What’s even better about those crossover comics in particular is that they were really amazing.
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.
Hi, my name is Meg and I’m a Batman fan.
Now, okay. You probably had one of two reactions reading that. You either thought “great, me too!” or “ugh, him?”
When Poison Ivy teams up with Floronic Man to execute a nefarious, world-threatening plan, Batman and Nightwing get desperate. Batman and Harley Quinn sees the heroically aligned Dark Knight and former Boy Wonder reach out tentative hands to ask for Harley Quinn's help. She has been Poison Ivy's best friend, after all, so it stands to reason she could assist in locating Ivy and stopping her from turning people into plants.
When you’re a student, the return to school in the fall is always a bit of a letdown after the glorious freedom of summer. I remember that part of me was happy to see my teachers and get a chance to play with friends every day, but only part of me. Plus, there was usually the dreaded "what I did on summer vacation" assignment that always felt like a weird competition and an invitation to try to one-up your classmates.
"Their attachments to those they love dictate their actions."
Super Hero High is a place for young heroes to learn all the usual subjects and life lessons one studies in high school and also how to use their super powers and skills for the good of humanity. While they balance attending class and striving for top marks with doing whatever's necessary to protect the citizens of nearby Metropolis, they also participate in the usual school activities—you know, sports, clubs and Intergalactic Games. The latter competition is the subject of the all-new animated movie, DC Super Hero Girls: Intergalactic Games.
