Batman fans are looking forward to the movie Suicide Squad not least because of Harley Quinn, the Joker’s sexy sidekick who became a fan favorite, played by Margot Robbie. The wait will be over this coming weekend, and to get ready for the movie, you might want to brush up on Harley Quinn history and some trivia about the Harley Quinn. She was born on TV, and became a comic book character later on.
Originally intended to be nothing beyond a walk-on, Harley (in her typical stubborn fashion) defied expectations. Resonating with viewers and writers alike, Harley earned her own origin story in the now classic Mad Love comic (which was later adapted into an episode of the New Batman Adventures in 1999) and has since become a fan favorite, going on to appear as a side character in a multitude of animated series, features and comics, (e.g. Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Injustice: Gods Among Us) and been given her own solo runs with heavyweight contributors the likes of Terry Dodson, Karl Kesel and Amanda Conner. Harley just won’t quit.
