Quote from: SAGG on January 07, 2019, 01:52:08 amYes, I like Harley Quinn as well, which is why I'm trying to understand why they're making her a killer in the Heroes in Crisis series. Harley's at the least an antihero, basically reformed. It doesn't make any sense... 🤔

The biggest problem that I had with the first series is that Batman goes out of his way to keep Shadow from killing Joker. This isn't the first time that Batman has saved Joker's life. I can see not killing Joker himself, but think of how many people Joker has killed over the years and I think Batman bears responsibility for a lot of these deaths along with Joker as a result.

Conspiracy to murder (or mass murder) at the very least, by virtue of her past associations with Joker and Poison Ivy. She's a habitual offender with multiple counts of felonious assault -- and I don't buy that Harley (unlike Batman) knows where the fine line between general egregious bodily mayhem and "attempted murder" (or at the very least "intent to maim/cause grave bodily injury") lies. "Antihero" encompasses guys like Deadshot and Deathstroke too, both definite unremittant killers (the Suicide Squad employs a lot of killers). For that matter, I wouldn't exactly call Amanda Waller a hero, either. You can argue that some animated versions of Harley are slightly kinder, gentler versions... but that would usually be specific to a particular episode or film.But nobody even blinked when they decided BOOSTER GOLD was a killer. Yeah, that's totally in character.Good examples of why I have little use for most modern DCU comics these days.
Quote from: SAGG on January 07, 2019, 11:36:32 pmI'm not taking issue with what you're posting exactly, but in her book Harley's portrayed as WAY more benign than she is here. I think there's something else sinister going on here. Super villain mind control, perhaps? 🤔
Quote from: rusty on January 06, 2019, 10:31:50 pmDC Beach Blanket Bad Guys Summer Special 1, Holiday Special 2017 1, House of Horror 1, Nuclear Winter Special 1 - These 80 page giants are a lot more expensive than the ones from the 1960s. Overall, pretty decent collections of short stories.
Quote from: rusty on January 06, 2019, 10:31:50 pmDeadman 1-6 - I enjoyed this series, but I think Neal Adams is better as an artist than as a writer.
Quote from: rusty on January 06, 2019, 10:31:50 pmDoomsday Clock 1-7 - This has been a pretty good sequel of sorts to Watchmen. I've enjoyed the interaction between the DC Universe and the Watchmen Universe.
