Harley Quinn fever is breaking the internet and with the upcoming live action Suicide Squad movie approaching in 2016, here's a list of women who rock the socks off that lovable character in every variation!

Classic Harley Quinn comic and animated

The original costume, you know the one, the classic jesters suit, her first appearance was in 1992 "The Jokers Favor," where she debuted as the cute and bubbly side kick to The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series. The original creation was by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, and she was meant to be just a one-shot character but the fans immediately fell in love with her. Here's a few ladies who bring her to life as the ultimate classic Quinn!

New 52 and variant Harley Quinn

As you can see, the dramatic change brought a new audience to the beloved character who made her debut in the 90's, but it didn't end there, the Harley Quinn nation was building, people had to be her, buy her memorabilia and have her in their lives. Even artists were bitten by Harley fever and as the comic conventions were growing, and so were the type of Harley Quinn variants. When DC launched the New 52 and Harley had her own solo series, the geek world was slowly taken over by that beloved bubbly blonde who had undergone another extreme transformation.
