Can we give it up to Harleen Quinzel (Harley Quinn) For not fighting Dinah Lance (Black Canary) when she found out that Black Canary is pregnant. She does not go any further like most Villians would. Most would not care that a Hero is pregnant, even after Black Canary asks to go back to fighting. Because they are starting to get close. But then Black Cananry finds out that Harley Quinn, and the Joker had a child.
You have to understand Harley tho. In their first session with the joker, she introduced herself as Dr Harleen
Quinzel, but says that he could refer to her as Harley Quinn (like
the medieval jester Harlequin.) Joker had been silent until then, but he
suddenly began laughing and asked if she was flirting with him. She shows the Joker her blossoming insanity, and obsession towards him.
Joker finds this appealing, and Harley helps him escape various times,
before eventually becoming his henchgirl. In some of the other retelling of her origin it is explained that she
was a psychology student working part time as a stripper to pay her
bills. The Joker is not the best of poeple, but you cannot say that Harley Quinn does not love him even tho she acknowledged his abusive behaviour and broke off from him. After a long relationship.
“He loves her as much as he can.
He loves her in his way.” -Paul Dini (Talking about the Joker’s love for Harley.)

I feel like I may be in the minority, but I looove this series so far. I’m only a few issues in but it’s so nice and fun. Why does the DC fan base always want doom and gloom? It’s a nice lighthearted escape from my shitty real life.
