* [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny Ears Psychologist]] - Harley, in spades. She barely ever acts like anything but an unrestrained loon, but occasionally she makes it known that she's ''still'' a university-educated psychologist. Later in the series, after she mostly loses the "bunny ears," she gets a day job in the field and takes a few patients (one or two of which want to kill her).

The series begins when, after a failed scheme, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker gets so pissed at Harley that he kicks her out of his gang - the rest of the series deals with Harley trying to make it on her own. Initially she tries freelance henching, but that doesn't exactly work out, so she starts her own gang instead. With... mixed results.
