Bring Back the Old Harley Quinn

    1. Petition by

      Laurel, MT

The character that is being touted as "Harley Quinn" is clearly not the one we knew before the reboot.

It's becoming increasingly clear that not only is she a mockery of the original character, she is truly a different entity. Now, the events of 'Batman: Harley Quinn' have never occurred -- the fact that Joker was able to poison her means that she never got powers, meaning she never took Ivy's potion. Speaking of which, she has never mentioned ever meeting Poison Ivy, or working with the Sirens. Actually, she has never given any nod to any history whatsoever besides a (horribly) revamped origin story with Joker.

So, if DC is going to drop the hook that there have been "other Harleys", maybe they should follow through with it and reveal that the corsetted strumpet we are seeing in Suicide Squad is merely some sort of copy or brainwashed clone. Let's see the original Harley Quinn back in action, under a writer that can do her justice.

To:
DC Comics
Please, bring back the old Harley Quinn. You've now opened up a perfect opportunity to do so with the "other Harleys" hook, and it's clear that this new character is in no way related to the beloved original. I implore you, swap them out before the idea cools down.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      This character resembles the original one only by name. Harley's unique and lovable character has now been stripped away by the New 52 into something quite tasteless.

      Because I loved the idea of cartoons having such an influence in the media they represent. Don't say thanks for making such an awesome character, but now we're going to spit on your ideas and make a crap version of her

      DC needs a cheerful, loveable Harley far more than a defiant, bland harlot. Make it so.

      Cause new Harley sucks awful. Dats why. Old Harley was sweet, and funny, and actually tried to be her own person.

      If I wanted to see a emo girl in pig-tails and a slutty costume beat the crap out of people I'd watch Sucker Punch. Bring back the Harley we love!
