For his first serious interview Jimmy Olsen managed to get an interview with Ras Al Ghul. Jimmy doesn’t know it but Ras planned to kill him but after Jimmy made him laugh he was a gracious host.
Zatanna never uses her magic to make food because it always tastes like an old sponge
Drake’s probably still in that chair
In response to your hashtags, I read the book when I was little and my very religious parents got mad because the White Witch was my favorite character. (Apparently I was supposed to like Aslan or something.)
as a prank, Zatanna switched Ollie’s tights with Dinah’s fishnets. Dinah got mad at her and Ollie just said “it’s ok, it’s not like we haven’t done this before”
No matter how many bones he breaks, Dick still thinks that stubbing his toe is the worst pain imaginable.
So are we getting another Mockingjay trailer or is that it?
For real. Come on, Lionsgate. I’ve bought so many of the crappy horror movies you people put have out — you owe me another trailer. Preferably, like, 12 of them.
I love Harley Quinn but I’m legit mad at some writers because some of them have literally butchered her, reducing her to a “dumb blonde Joker sidekick”.
Harley Quinn is, from what I know and have read so far, the only villain to have a consistent team up with Joker. Yeah, Joker, the guy who randomly betrays his allys because it’s fun. And thing even more amazing, Harleen is far from being a heartless psychopathic killer. Okay, she clearly has some problems, but she’s human. She’s kind and warm to her friends. Have you ever seen Penguin or Scarecrow having friends? Me neither.
Harley Quinn is a fucking boss. Joker is a fucking criminal mastermind and she survived every single murder attempt by her man. I don’t think a “dumb blonde” could have survived a criminal mastermind.
A thing I really dislike is people’s tendency to see her as dumb and naive. She’s delusional, not naive. She fucking knows what she’s doing. Yeah, maybe she’s not smart enough to have had her PhD alone, but don’t think for one second she’s not dangerous. In BTAS she manipulated teachers so she could pass. She’s not naive, she knows how the fucking world works and she sure knows how to get her way.
I’m pretty sure she fully realises what Joker is despite her delusion. Her various attempts to break from him prove it to me. She’s not as blind as people think.
I’ve always thought Harley had an intuitive intelligence when it came to people, and it’s probably what has kept her alive. She may not realise it, but she, in a way, understands Joker. She knows how he functions.
So long story short, stop fucking reducing Harley Quinn to some pretty boobs because far, far, far more than that!
I agree with 99% of your post except for a couple of bits, including the part about Harley being naive. I think she’s an extremely smart woman—and like you, I too hate seeing her intelligence insulted in favor of the “ditsy” routine—but I also believe that Harls is a wee bit naive, and I think that stems from her desire to see the best in certain people, particularly Joker. Back when she first began interviewing Joker, she knew that he was a dangerous person who had done terrible, terrible things, but instead she focused on the more “gentle” aspects of his personality (even if they were all complete fabrications): his desire to make his father laugh, his sense of humor, how he listened to her own thoughts and feelings, etc. But as I’ve said before and will say again: believing a master manipulator’s lies does not make someone unintelligent. They are very good at not only lying, but also preying on what they perceive to be a person’s weakness. Combine Joker’s charm and sob stories with Harleen’s trusting nature, and it’s no surprise that Mad Love played out the way it did. I don’t think she’s blind to Joker’s actions, but I do think that she chooses to view them in a certain light (which would tie into what you said about her being delusional).
I think Harley was capable of getting her PhD the old fashioned way, but studying simply did not appeal to her and therefore she chose to boost her grades via an alternative method. I also think that maybe she enjoyed getting what she wanted on her own terms, i.e. “I really want this high grade, and you’re going to give it to me the way that I want”. The professor might have received sexual gratification, but Harley was the one calling the shots.
Definitely agree that Harley is intuitive (which may have been one of the reasons she was drawn to psychiatry), and also that she (and every other female character) should not be reduced solely to their physical appearance. Some do not seem to realize that a woman can be sexy and a well-rounded character.
(FWIW, I have read comics where both Scarecrow and Penguin had friends—Scarecrow in Study Hall and Penguin in Joker’s Asylum—but they both ended with them returning to their villainous nature, although Crane’s motivations were much more justifiable.)
Thank you for submitting this to me! :)
I hate all her costumes that isn’t the original. They have never come up with a signal decent one. The punk goth thing just doesn’t work. They’re so ridiculously revealing, which is totally out of character. She’s goofy not a sexpot.
I just want to reblog this because people are discussing Harley and acknowledging that she is smarter, cooler, and more badass than a lot of people give her credit for.
DC keeps trolling Lobo fans it seems. Unless its a tease, pretty boy Lobo is here to stay.
