“But, even from the beginning… Harley Quinn was no angel.”
Batman, Batman Adventures: Harley Quinn
I HATE THIS PAGE WITH THE RED HOT FIRE OF A THOUSAND BURNING SUNS.
oh my god this makes me so angry oh my god
In one page, they undid her legitimate career as a criminal psychologist. And that got me mad because her, as a character, would have a bigger impact if she had fallen from such great height to become the Joker’s puppet.
Calm your collective tits.
This page was written by Paul Dini. You know. The “they” that created Harley Quinn. The man who knows her more intimately than anyone. Creator.
What is objectionable? She got a D-? Grades are not indicative of intelligence. Especially not in a post-graduate setting on a major thesis. Judging by her personality, I don’t think it’s absurd to think she doesn’t do well in a traditional academic setting. Harley is mighty intelligent, although she frequently downplays it to take advantage of people’s underestimation of her.
If the act of sleeping with her professor is objectionable, then you misunderstand what I take to be an example of Harley’s drive to succeed and resourcefulness and her ability to manipulate as well as she is manipulated.
This isn’t Harley being “dumb” or a “slut”. It’s Harley. You have to take into account all aspects of a character to truly appreciate her. This is an aspect of Harley.
I’m so sick of seeing reblog comments like this for something I posted about my favorite character. Consider the source. Consider alternatives. Just think before you get instantly, irrationally angry.
