HARLEY QUINN

First appearance in Batman: The Animated Series (Sept 1992). First appearance in the DC continuity: Batman: Harley Quinn (August 1999)

The love of a bad man made Dr. Harleen Quinzel what she is today: Certifiable. While researching Arkham Asylum's lunatic fringe, the ill-fated psychiatric intern met the model murderer, the Joker, and fell for him head over heels. When the authorities discovered that Harleen aided the Clown Prince of Crime's all too frequent escapes, her medical licence was revolked...and Harleen was given her own cell from which to pine over her "Puddin'." Feed from Arkham after Gotham City's cataclysmic earthquake, Harleen made herself over in greasepaint and tassles.

As Harley Quinn, she was the perfect partner-in-crime - a curvy jester who delighted in mayhem as much as the Joker. However, the Ace of Knaves quickly tired of Harley's affections and gleefully shot her off in a rocket. Crash-landing outside of Robinson Park, Harley was nursed back to health by Poison Ivy, who administered an herbal concoction which significantly enhanced Harley's strength and agility, while making her immune to most toxins. Recently reconciled with her "Mr. J," Harley hopes to lead him to the altar...if the Joker doesn't kill her first.
