YMMV: Harley Quinn
  • Author's Saving Throw: A Saving Throw based on something that happened before the series even started. Prior to the New 52 series beginning, DC announced an art contest based around drawing a page for the #0 issue that ended with a panel described in the script as a naked Harley about to commit an Electrified Bathtub Bath Suicide. This sparked Internet Backdraft over an apparent misogynistic eroticisation of a woman's suicide, made worse by the fact that the script didn't include any of the dialogue, or indicate that it was meant to be contextualised as a fantasy sequence. When the issue was published, the final panel of the page showed a fully-clothed (well, as much as she ever is in the New 52) Harley Riding the Bomb instead.
  • Evil Is Sexy: She has quite the fandom online.
  • Periphery Demographic: Bizarrely, in the BDSM community, not only is she well-liked, her popularity VASTLY overshadows the Joker's.
  • Tear Jerker: Has a page.
