When The Batman brings a broken and beaten Joker back into the asylum Harleen snaps, running off and assumin her new alter ego, Harley Quinn, brimming with love and psychosis, she springs The Joker from Arkham and joins him on his quest to bring down the Batman. Harley is a formidable foe, excelling in gymnastics and fighting, with a keen, but twisted mind for crime. Teaming up with Poison Ivy, the girls are a duo to be reckoned with.
