Harley's Newest Incarnation

As you all should know by now I've developed an odd obsession with DC comic's Bat-villainess, Harley Quinn. Unlike most of the Batman Rouges Gallery, Harley has only a few different versions of herself whereas a charter like the Joker has dozens.

Here we see the first version of Harley from the 1992 - 1995, Batman: The Animated Series. Harley was created by writter Paul Dini and drawn by Bruce Timm. She is voiced by and partly modeled after TV star Arleen Sorkin.

In 1997 - 1999 Batman: The Animated Series was "revamped" to air along side the Superman Animated Series also created by Dini and Timm. The "revamped" version of the show had a new look and changed several of the characters but is still somewhat part of the same continuity of the original show. This version of Haley will run through the Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's Animated DC universe which include; Superman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and Justice League.

In October 1999, Harley was officially introduced into Batman Comics. The comic book version of Quinn, like the comic book version of The Joker, is more dangerously psychotic and less humorously kooky than the animated series version.

This is the first ever "live action" Harley Quinn. She appeared on the final episode of the WB's "Birds of Prey" titled "The Devil's Eyes" (2003). Unfortunately she never appeared in her jester outfit and she was given a different origin and even the Superpower to hypnotize people with her eyes. In my opinion she is the worst Harley to date.

And Finally, last Saturday February 24th, the newest incarnation of Harley Quinn appeared on the Kids WB's "The Batman". "The Batman", like "Teen Titans", is in no way connected to Bruce Timm and Paul Dini's Animated DC Universe and are more targeted at younger viewers and made for merchandising. However the Harley’s episode, "Two of a Kind", was a freelance script written by Harley's creator Paul Dini. This will be the first animated version of Harley not to be voiced by Arleen Sorkin.
