We all know and love Harley. As she started as Harleen Quinzel, she was the Joker's doctor who then fell in love with him. In an abusive relationship, the Joker turned her into the new and improved Harley Quinn!

Originally created for the animated series, Harley became so popular that she transferred into the comic book pages and our hearts. Now, she is one of the most popular comic book characters ever!

Now please forgive me, as this is my FIRST post ever, so I'm kinda new to this. Please help me improve, and no hate! Let's start off with the juicy stuff...

1. Harley is immune to acid

yep. you heard me right
yep. you heard me right

As we all know, the relationship between Harley and Joker is a bit 'rocky,' having its ups and downs. In one story line, Harley gets kicked out of the gang, befriending Poison Ivy. After some time, Ivy gives her a serum that grants her super strength and agility, as well as the immunity to acids and toxics.

2. Harley actually has a good side

Harley used to be a doctor in Arkham Asylum, so she was obviously sane once. In the story line of Suicide Squad from 2011-2014, Harley actually started to become normal again as her Harleen Quinzel persona started to take over again. That didn't last long, as Joker put her in a container of acid, trying to, and somehow succeeding in, turning her crazy.

Even before that, Harley joined the Birds of Prey, only to quit after a short while. But still, it's the thought that counts!

3. Harley was supposed to appear on the big screen a long time ago

Remember than terrible Batman and Robin movie directed by Joel Schumacher in 1997?

yes, I want to forget that too
yes, I want to forget that too

After that movie, Harley Quinn was supposed to be one of the two villains that was planned to try and rule the world in the not-so-anticipated sequel. Thank God that didn't happen. Harley Quinn will make her first screen appearance in Suicide Squad portrayed by Margot Robbie in 2016.

4. Harley has a child?

In the 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' storyline, Harley actually had a child with the Joker named Lucy. In a confession speech to Black Canary, Quinn said that the Joker didn't care about her, so she sent Lucy off to her sister so she could have normal days with, wait, dancing cars?

Fun fact: After Black Canary gave birth, Harley visited her every day with her child.

5. Harley is an extraordinary person

not obvious is it? never judge a book by its cover

Now we all know the crazy part, that's obvious, but here are a few quick, fun, facts proving that Harley is even more special as a person. She is Jewish, as well as bisexual. She is also extremely good with children and, as I stated before, a really caring person generally. She thought about committing suicide once, which is ironic in so many ways.

6. Harley is an expert in weaponry

you see what I mean?
you see what I mean?

This one is obvious. Harley is an expert in guns, various fighting styles, has great agility and perfect control over her signature mallet. Also, being a baseball fan, she often uses a bat and has a range of different silly weapons to spice up the game.

7. There are tons of Harley versions!

Harley, being one hell of a character, has tones of outfits and costume changes including a nurse's outfit, Suicide Squad's movie costume, the New 52 outfit, Arkham City's video game version, Injustice, Brave and the Bald, the animated series, and so much more! So, what's your favorite?

kisses to you all!
kisses to you all!

Overall, Harley is one of my favorite characters. Make sure to tell me if I missed any awesome facts!
