Who is Harley Quinn

After separating from Joker, Harley was determined to prove herself. Changing her outfit was just the start but her plans were far from over.

At first, her goals were purely aimed at the Joker as a means of getting even with him for never acknowledging her as more than an underling. So she planned a heist that didn’t exactly go in her favor, having Joker mock her in the process. Part of her failure was due to her lack of a team. After all, the only person she had in her corner at the time was Poison Ivy. So Harley set out to find people who were willing to join her, which ended up being a little harder than she anticipated. Eventually, she struck gold with Clayface and Doctor Psycho, making a pretty big name for herself in the process.

Quinn, like many of the other characters’ costumes, is story-driven.
