Nu har Hollywood Reporter fått fatt i storyn men där går man längre och levererar i mitt tycke en tämligen bra analys om varför den Harley Quinn som nu härjar runt i serietidningarnarna (bortsett från Suicide Squad) blivit en sådan succe:
"So what changed? What did Conner and Palmiotti (and artists including Chad Hardin and John Timms) do so right? The short version is that they let Harley grow up. Not too much, not enough to stop her acting on impulse and making poor decisions wherever possible — that's part of her charm — but enough that she could leave the Suicide Squad and the Joker behind, for the most part, and try to start over in Coney Island, building a family of misfits and friends around her that help propel storylines forward.
The Harley that's seen in contemporary comics is smarter and kinder than any seen before; she will do anything for her friends in need, no matter how ridiculous or nonsensical it may be and — through dumb luck, happenstance and genre convention — come out smiling on the other side. If Deadpool is the Bugs Bunny of comic books, then Conner and Palmiotti turned Harley into a slightly homicidal Lucille Ball, and it's a shift that works.
One way to put it is that the contemporary comic book Harley has the smart mouth of [Margot]Robbie's cinematic version, but better self-preservation instincts. She wouldn't ditch the Squad for the Joker, especially not if it risked her life in the process; indeed, the comic book version has broken ties with her former beau, having identified that theirs was an abusive relationship. Instead, she's entered into an on-again, off-again relationship with fellow villain Poison Ivy — who, coincidentally, also will be a character in the Gotham City Sirens movie."
