The Early Days
Dr. Harleen Quinzel started her journey with an internship at Arkham Asylum. She is told one day that she will be having her first evaluation of Gotham's most notorious villain, The Joker. After talking with Joker for a while, she feels as if a part of her likes the poor and misunderstood criminal. But she throws it off and exits the room after the evaluation is complete.
Something Much Worse...
On continuing to debate her feelings over Joker, she concentrates on her work so not to think about it. Then one day, some armed men start to go in rooms and hold members of the facility hostage. One man grabs Harleen and straps her to an electroshock table. She then hears Joker walk in and she sees him grab the batons used to perform electroshock therapy on the inmates. He tells her he won't kill her, but that he'll hurt her really, really, bad. This torture damages her mind a bit and she reveals her love for Joker.
While the torturing of the doctor didn't quite make her insane as planned, Harleen had been glad she realized her feelings towards Joker were true. But lately, they've been arguing a lot after Joker kidnapped and murdered Jason Todd. She feels bad about the kid and her conscience is telling her to break free from Joker. She asks to pull off the road and they fight, leading to him slap her. She decides to not listen to her conscience and forgives Joker. He then takes her to Ace Chemicals and dumps her into the same vat of chemicals that changed him. She comes out reborn as Harley Quinn and becomes completely insane.
Harley and Mr. J frequently go into town and have a little fun. However one night, things change when our villainous dynamic duo learn that Batman has come to track them down and put them back in Arkham. So they escape in Joker's car and after a while, Batman shows up chasing them in the Batmobile.
Harley's loving the thrill of the chase and tells her puddin' that she hopes he has insurance. Sooner or later, Batman ejects out of the Batmobile and lands on top of the car.
The chase then ends with both Harley and Joker going to jail, and her conscience tells her that she needs to turn her life around and needs to let go of Joker.
Then some time after that, Amanda Waller visits Arkham Asylum and asks Harley if she wants to be a part of an elite task force known as the Suicide Squad.
Is this how Harley's origin will be explained in Suicide Squad? If I missed anything or need to fix something, make sure to tell me in the comments below. Also, check out my other articles right here. Make sure to share and follow! Thanks for reading!
