* How ComicBook/HarleyQuinn should be portrayed has become this due to the drift between newer fans (fans who like her because of the ComicBook/New52, ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries'', or ''ComicBook/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'') and older fans (fans of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries''). The problem is caused due to how she's [[DependingOnTheWriter portrayed in media inconsistently]]. Should Harley be TheDitz, a GeniusDitz, a DitzyGenius, or is she ObfuscatingStupidity? Was she a genuine psychologist (or psychiatrist depending on who you ask) or was she only in it for the cash and couldn't make it through the schooling [[SextraCredit on her own]]? Then there's the costumes, in particular her newer one's that pile on the {{Fanservice}}. Some really enjoy the new designs and find them to be synonymous with her character, Harley's newer designs in particular have become a very popular cosplay choice; others find the changes unnecessary and another tactless way to pile on pointless sex-appeal.

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/{{Joker}}'' has caused this with ''how'' it decided to depict its version of [[ComicBook/TheJoker its title character]] with some saying he's still in character, just toned down and others saying that Brian Azzarello intentionally making the Joker not funny to readers and/or even implied to be a pill popper was out of character--and that's without getting into the fact that MemeticMolester reputation aside, it's the only time it's explicit that the Joker raped someone and there's debate over that going too far and again, out of character. There's also some fans who hated the depiction of the normally-talkative PerkyFemaleMinion ComicBook/HarleyQuinn as a {{silent|Antagonist}} [[TheDragon Dragon]] for the Joker.

** Wondy fandom ''defines'' BrokenBase. There is absolutely nothing we can't make an epic battle between good and evil. Secret ID, or no secret ID? Pre-Crisis or post-Crisis? Like a love interest, or loathe him? (Though never 'her,' there was surprisingly little argument over Io.) Love the costume, or despise it? Yea or nay on the invisible plane? ''And what about her frigging heels?''

* When ''TheFlash: Rebirth'' mini-series was announced, with the news it was bringing back Barry Allen, the ''Flash'' fanbase suffered a split down the center between Allen and Wally West almost identical to ''Green Lantern'''s Jordan/Rayner divide. At least this time people could see it coming.

* ''ComicBook/WhiteSand'' has caused some of this in Brandon Sanderson's fandon when it first came out, though not to the extent this tends to happen in other fandoms. Some, who's read the original draft for ''White Sand'' novel, find the graphic novel version inferior, while others call it SoOkayItsAverage, whereas yet others praise it as an excellent story and a good GatewayDrug into graphic novels in general.

* As with the games, [[ComicBook/SonicTheComic both]] ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog comics]]. The various changes from the games and ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' are a major BaseBreaker in the Archie's comic, and ''ComicBook/SonicTheComic'' fans seem more broken over the unofficially official ''Webcomic/SonicTheComicOnline''.

** Fans are split on whether Betty ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS Bette]]) Kane is the original Batgirl or whether Barbara Gordon s. Betty ''technically'' had the Batgirl mantel first but it was spelled "Bat-Girl", and was more of a DistaffCounterpart to Robin. In TheEighties DC [[CanonDiscontinuity retconned]] Barbara to be the one, original Batgirl while Bette became Flamebird. Fans are split on the technicalities of who should be considered the first Batgirl and whether Flamebird should be a Batfamily member or not.

This extends to what type of villains he fights and how ther personalities are portrayed, such as whether his more outlandish foes are funny or just obnoxious or whether ComicBook/TheJoker should be genuinely funny or not.
