When we talk about Harley Quinn comics we think of an origin story, Gotham City Sirens, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and of course Harley Quinn: Our Worlds at War. Here are some of the things you might not have known about these comics.
Harley Quinn is one of the most popular characters in DC Comics. She was created by comics writer Paul Dini and artist Bruce Timm.
Her alias is Harlequin, which is a play on a stock character from a 16th-century theater. The character is a fictional criminal. She has been featured in several DC Comics titles, including Batman: The Animated Series, Birds of Prey, and Suicide Squad.
In the DC Animated Universe, Harley Quinn was voiced by Melissa Rauch. She was also portrayed by Laura Bailey and Hynden Walch. This was her first time playing a superhero.
She was originally known as Harleen Quinzel, a psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum. After she fell in love with the Joker, she was assigned to work at the facility.
At the time, Harley Quinn was still a teenager, but she was already qualified in forensic psychiatry. She was also qualified in psychological therapy, and had earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology.
Gotham City Sirens
When the first film in the Gotham City Sirens series was released in 2010, it was considered a decent update to the DC comic. Though it was not a box office hit, it received positive reviews. It was not a big name like Iron Man or Spider-Man, but it had a few interesting elements.
Gotham City Sirens is a comic book series starring Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. It was published from June 2009 to August 2011. The series was written by Paul Dini, who also penned the Batman: The Animated Series and the DC Animated Universe.
Gotham City Sirens combines characters from the Batman and Suicide Squad series. This is a relatively new spinoff and will feature the best female villains in the DC comics universe.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arrive in Gotham City, where they get a shock. They are greeted by Harley Quinn, who is a hyena. She is also an enemy of Batman.
While Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may have different origins, they have been meeting in comic books for years. But until now, they have never been on screen together.
In the movie, the Turtles and Batman are on collision course. And so, they decide to join forces to fight the villains who are threatening Gotham. At first, Bruce and Raph try to break the pair up, but the Turtles convince them that it is a good idea to work together.
The Turtles begin to realize that the villain they’re facing is actually the real culprit, and that he has an accomplice. Ra’s Al Ghul is a criminal leader who is using Gotham to turn it into a crime ridden city full of mutants. He has already injected Arkham Asylum criminals with a serum, which turns them into half animals.
Harley Quinn: Our Worlds at War
One of my favorite geeky subjects is the sexiest member of the fam. In the odds department, you are most likely a sexiest lady in the land, and it goes without saying you are not a sexiest guy or gal, but if the above mentioned fam was a sexiest male, you would know it was the last man standing. Not to mention, your sexiest female is one of those ladies that just won’t leave you alone. I’m talking about the one you’ve been teasing you with since you were a kid. Thankfully, it’s not like you are in a one bedroom apartment, but you are in the same room as a sexiest guy or girl, who will be a sexiest mate, and a sexiest female, who will be a sexiest male.
Harley Quinn’s voiced by Arleen Sorkin
The character of Harley Quinn is now the second most popular female character in the DC Comics universe. She’s joined by Wonder Woman as one of DC’s most prominent female protagonists. Having become a staple in the comic world, Harley is now poised for a movie. And the character is getting a reboot from James Gunn.
It’s been more than 25 years since Harley Quinn first appeared in the comics. She was created by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm as a sidekick for the Joker. After a brief appearance on the Batman: The Animated Series, she became a more permanent fixture in DC’s universe.
Arleen Sorkin was the original voice of Harley Quinn. She originated the role in the show’s first season and went on to voice the character in eight more shows. This included Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and the DC Universe Online.
